The Huawei Nova 2S could be very near its release after photos of the phone and specs were leaked. The images show a real smartphone and not some concept image of what the phone could look like once it’s released.
The Huawei Nova 2S looks pretty good in these images and does have a number of differences when compared to the Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus released earlier this year. The most noticeable is on the top and bottom bezels. The Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus had really thick bezels and the top and bottom. The Nova 2S gets rid of that and has a much more impressive display. The other big difference is that the fingerprint scanner is now on the front of the device. The Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus featured a circular fingerprint scanner on the back.
The image of the back of the device reminds me a little of the Huawei Honor 8 but without the circular fingerprint scanner. The device appears to be the blue color option, which is also one of the things why it reminds me a little of the Honor 8. The back reveals two dual cameras, flash and the company’s name in the middle. The front also shows that there is two front cameras, the only detail I notice here is that the cameras are not lined up correctly, with the one on the right side being much higher.
An image of some of the specs in Chinese was also revealed. Here are those specs:
- 6-inch display. The Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus have 5-inch and 5.50-inch displays.
- Kirin 960 processor.
- 6GB of RAM.
- Dual rear cameras of 20MP and 16MP. The front camera is 20MP but there is no mention of a dual front facing camera.
- Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0.
- Another image appears to show the phone in four different color options. From what we can tell, the color options are silver, light blue, dark blue and pink.
Earlier this month, there was also a Huawei Nova 3 leak with a device similar to the one we’re seeing now. That leak revealed a device with dual cameras on the front and back. The dual rear cameras are said to be 20MP and 16MP while the front cameras are 20MP and 2MP. Nothing has been confirmed, so we’ll have to wait for Huawei to announce the Nova 2S or Nova 3 or both.
