Huawei Nova 2S review
Our Huawei Nova 2S review is one of the very first to uncover a four camera system on a smartphone. With dual front and dual back cameras, the Huawei Nova 2S will be a hit with those looking for incredible photography.
Full HD+ display
The Huawei Nova 2S has a long 6” display with Full HD+ resolution at 403 pixels per inch. Set to an 18:9 aspect ratio, the screen has 2160 x 1080 pixels (Full HD1960 x 1080 pixels) and this lets viewers see 12.5% more, be that of a webpage or game that supports the new resolution.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the Huawei Nova 2S is released.
The display sits behind a piece of hardened glass and we also find a glass back coloured in one of five colours (black, silver,grey, pink gold, or red). The Nova 2S is pretty slim compared to others at 7.5mm thick and it weighs in at 169g.
The Huawei Nova 2S has the new Kirin 960 2.4GHz octa-core AI processor with 4GB or 6GB RAM. This AI chip has a NPU (neural-network processing unit) and this learns from its user’s behaviours. By doing so, it can allocate resources by anticipating behaviours, giving 25x performance at 1/50 of the power consumption.

The Nova 2S also has an independent Hi-Fi sound chip and Histen 4.0 sound algorithm. These work together to produce studio like sound quality over a 3D space.

Phone Set Up
The Huawei Nova 2S has Face Unlock, which is activated when you lift the phone up. It is backed up by fingerprint security, which is ultra secure for making online payments.
The Huawei Nova 2S runs Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and this is enhanced with the EMUI 8.0 user interface. EMUI 8.0 brings a number of Huawei apps and features such as:
- AI Smart Tips - Intelligent recommendations for the function you need, based on AI

Camera & Video
The Huawei Nova 2S has a dual camera consisting of a 20MP monochrome lens and 16MP colour bionic lens. The camera uses multi-frame image fusion technology to create images that are incredibly detailed, accurate and vibrant.

Along with dual camera zoom, there is AI powered real-time scene and object recognition, so you can shoot any scene like a pro, without ever touching a setting.
Further features of the camera app include:
- 3D dynamic panorama
- Smile capture
- Slow motion
- 4K video recording
Dual selfie camera
The Huawei Nova 2S has a dual portrait camera consisting of a 20MP HD lens and 2MP depth of field lens. This gives SLR-level bokeh effects (blurred background) with the option to adjust the focus post shot.
AI graphics technology is also hard at work and it very accurately allows you to separate people from backgrounds. With this feature you can then apply your latest selfie to any background and no-one will ever know that it wasn’t the original backdrop.
The Huawei Nova 2S has a high capacity 3,340mAh battery and this offers up to 20 hours of talk time or up to 500 hours of standby. Smart Power Saving 5.0 technology works in the background and when needed it can scale back performance to ensure the battery sees you to its next recharge.
The charging cable connects to the USB Type C port and from flat, a full charge takes around 2 hours.
