All existing representatives of the Nova series were well equipped with middle-class devices that meet the requirements of most users. But Huawei decided to introduce some changes to this lineup. Huawei Nova 2S is a device that is something average, between the flagship and a smartphone of the middle class.
Huawei Nova 2S is equipped with TFT LCD IPS display with a diagonal of 6 inches, proportions 18: 9 (2: 1) and Full HD +, that is 2160 × 1080 pixels, with their density at 403 ppi. The heart of the smartphone is the 8-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor (4x ARM Cortex-A73 2.4 GHz + 4x ARM Cortex-A53 1.8 GHz, 16 nm) with a graphics chip Mali-G71 MP8. At this point, it should be added that exactly the same system is in Huawei Mate 9, Huawei P10 and Honor 8 Pro. In addition, this device offers – depending on the version – 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory with the ability to expand using a microSD card with a maximum capacity of 256 GB.
The main camera in Huawei Nova 2S consists of two lenses with a resolution of 20 megapixels and 16 megapixels and aperture f / 1.8. They can record video in 4K format, but, unfortunately, they do not have OIS, that is, optical image stabilization. On the front, you will also find a dual camera: 20 megapixels + 2 megapixels with f / 2.0 aperture, video recording at 1080p. Communication in this model provides such modules: Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, LTE, NFC, GPS, A-GPS, Glonass and Beidou, as well as connectors: for headphones 3.5 mm and USB-C with support for OTG.
The manufacturer also did not forget about two more important elements: Dual SIM and fingerprint scanner (front). An additional biometric protection is the face recognition system. High quality of sound reproduction will be provided by chip AK4376A and special algorithms of Huawei Histen 4.0. Nova 2S is running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the EMUI 8.0 interface, and its energy is provided by a 3340 mAh battery with support for 9V 2A fast charging technology. The dimensions of the smartphone look like this: 156.9 × 75.1 × 7.5 mm, and its weight is 169 grams.
