The company opts for a Snapdragon chipset instead of its own Kirin series of processors

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has launched a new smartphone in the Nova series in the Philippines. Dubbed as the Nova 2 Lite, the design of the smartphone looks very akin to the earlier launched Honor 9 Lite. It comes with an all-glass body and is available in three colour variants- Matte Black, Blue and Gold.

As for the specs, the Huawei Nova 2 features a 5.99 inch IPS display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of (1440 x 720 pixels). Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. This is interesting since the company has their own Kirin series of processors and usually don’t opt for the Snapdragon ones. It is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which is expandable upto 256 GB via micro SD card.

In the optics department, the smartphone offers a dual camera setup on the back consisting of a 13 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP secondary sensor for the portrait mode. In the front, it has an 8 MP camera sensor for taking selfies and video calling.

The smartphone runs on the company’s own EMUI 8 which is based on the Android 8.0 Oreo and is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery.  Though the Nova 2 Lite includes a rear fingerprint sensor, it also comes with the Face Unlock feature like the Honor 9 Lite. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, micro-USB and more.

The device comes with a price tag of P9,990 (Rs 12,500 approx) and is currently only available in the Philippines . The company has said nothing about its launch in the international markets. There is also the possibility of launching it under their sub-brand Honor in the Indian market which has more dominance.
