Huawei Nova 2 Lite goes official with 5.99-inch FullView Display, Dual Rear Cameras and Android 8.0 Oreo

The Huawei Nova 2 Lite also comes with Face Unlock feature which uses face recognition to unlock the smartphone

Last weekend, Chinese smartphone brand Huawei launched the Huawei Y9 (2018) with dual cameras on the front and back. Now today, the company has launched the Huawei Nova 2 Lite which also comes with dual cameras, but only at the back.


In terms of design, the Huawei Nova 2 Lite looks exactly like the Honor 9 Lite that was launched last year in China. The Nova 2 Lite boasts a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9 which has been trending since last year.


A display with this kind of aspect ratio helps the reduce the bezels on the smartphone, which is also the case here with the Huawei Nova 2 Lite. And hence, there’s no fingerprint scanner at the front, instead, it has been moved on to the back.

For selfies and video calls, you have an 8 MP camera on the front, and, at the back, you get a dual camera setup which is combination of 13 MP and 2 MP cameras. With this dual camera setup, you can take photos with Bokeh Effect which blurs background to help the subject standout.

Under the hood, the Huawei Nova 2 Lite comes powered by Snapdragon 430 SoC that’s paired with 3 GB RAM. The smartphone runs EMUI 8.0 out of the box which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo. The Nova 2 Lite has 32 GB of internal storage, and, it also comes with a dedicated slot for microSD card so that you don’t have to choose between more storage or extra SIM card.

Lastly, the Huawei Nova 2 Lite is offered in two colors – Black and Blue – and, it ships with a 3000 mAh battery fuels the entire package.
