Huawei has revealed the Nova series smartphones at the end of 2016 and marketed them as phones for fashionable folk, a slim device with a great camera to slip into skinny jeans. The successor to the Nova smartphone Huawei Nova 2 was launched in May this year. The device, as company claims, is more lightweight, stronger and slimmer than its predecessor.

The Huawei Nova 2 comes with a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. The smartphone is powered by 2.36GHz octa-core Kirin 659 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM support. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the rear side of the phone, rather than in the home button. Huawei Nova 2 only weighs 169 grams, making it very light. The device has a thickness of 6.9mm, which makes it one of the thinnest phones available to grab, Digital Trends reported.

The Huawei Nova 2 packs 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. On the camera front, the Huawei Nova 2 has a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear side and on the front side, it has a 20-megapixel selfie shooter, as reported by NDTV.

The Huawei Nova 2 currently runs on the Android 7.0 and is powered by a 2950mAh non-removable battery. The Huawei Nova 2 is a dual SIM smartphone and has connectivity options like Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.

Android 7.0 Nougat is coming pre-installed with Huawei's EMUI 5.1 user interface over the top in the Huawei Nova 2. In the hands on review by several publications, EMUI 5.1 was also tried on the Chinese version, which was filled with bloatware. However, the app drawer can be activated, there are algorithms working to keep the software running quickly over the lifetime of the device, and it's considerably more user-friendly than previous versions. Huawei Nova 2 costs only $365.
