Recently Huawei launched it’s flagship Honor phablet the Honor V10 with full-screen 18:9 display. Looks like Huawei is not stopping there, the upcoming mid-ranger from Huawei the Nova 2 Plus will also have an 18:9 full-screen display. While the phone analysts criticised the 18:9 aspect ratio when it debuted on the LG G6 and then the Galaxy S8. Many reviewers counted the 18:9 aspect as a con but that seems to be changed as the 18:9 aspect ratio is becoming a norm. This year most of the flagship phones were launched with the 18:9 aspect and looks like in 2018 all phones will embrace the 18:9 aspect ratio.
Today, a Weibo user posted images of what he claims to be Huawei Nova 2s. The phone visible in the photos below seems similar to the recently released Honor flagship phone, the Honor V10. The phone has a so-called full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. On the front, you can see a dual camera setup at the top. Below the display is a fingerprint scanner just like the Honor V10. The back seems to be made of glass unlike the aluminum back of the Honor V10. The back also has a dual camera setup along with an LED flash.
Huawei Nova 2s Specifications
As for the specs, the phone will be powered by the Kirin 960 coupled with 6GB of RAM, unlike the Honor V10 which is powered by the latest Huawei flagship SOC Kirin 970. What is interesting is that both the cameras on the front will have a 20MP resolution. On the back, there will be one 20MP monochrome sensor and a 16MP color sensor with F/1.8 aperture. The phone is expected to be priced between CNY 2,500 to CNY 3,000 (approximately $379 to $455 US dollars). There is no word on the battery capacity and we don’t know if it will have fast charging capability.
