Huawei Launches Huawei nova 2 lite – Bringing back INnovaTION
Huawei nova 2 lite: an INnovaTIVE Sequel?
Huawei has just unveiled their newest smartphone with the Huawei nova 2 lite, a second addition to Huawei’s nova line of smartphones. Made for the younger generation, the Huawei nova 2 lite is perfect for users who loves taking selfies anywhere and everywhere and are extremely active on social media or SMAs (Social Media Addicts) as Huawei likes to call it.
The Huawei nova 2 lite features a big 5.99 inch HD+ display with the increasingly popular 18:9 aspect ratio FullView display together with 2.5D curved glass panel. Under the hood of the Huawei nova 2 lite is a surprising octa-core Snapdragon 430 chipset with 3GB of RAM as well 32GB of internal storage, which is expandable via microSD card of course. Why I say this is surprising is because Huawei decided against using any of their in-house Kirin chipsets in the nova 2 lite, instead relying on an entry-level Snapdragon chipset. Powering the nova 2 lite is a modest 3,000mAh battery with power saving 6.0.
The Huawei nova 2 lite sports a dual lens rear camera setup much like its older sibling, the Huawei nova 2i as well as a bunch of other Huawei smartphones. However, it loses the quad camera setup the Huawei nova 2i is famous for with only a single front facing camera. The rear camera setup features a 13MP main camera as well as a 2MP secondary camera that enables bokeh shots with up to 7 aperture level for users to select from. The front camera on the other hand features an 8MP camera with advanced selfie toning flash, which automatically detects the lighting on the subject’s face and intelligently adjusts the level of brightness for a natural-looking selfie.
In terms of software, the Huawei nova 2 lite comes with EMUI 8.0 inside and is based of the latest Android Oreo 8.0. The Huawei nova 2 lite also features face unlock as well as fingerprint unlock. Here’s another feature on the nova 2 lite that I really like and wish all smartphones would adopt, a three card SIM tray instead of those hybrid ones most smartphones tend to use.
The Huawei nova 2 lite will retail for a very affordable price of RM 799 and will be available for purchase from March 23 onward at all Huawei Experience Stores, authorized resellers as well as Celcom and Maxis authorized stores and will be available in two colours, Blue and Black. You can also receive a free Huawei travel bag when you purchase the device (while stocks last).
Pokdepinion: The Huawei nova 2 lite is really an odd device. With it’s better older sibling, the Huawei nova 2i getting a huge price slash and the recently released (not to mention cheaper!) honor 9 lite out there in the market, I’m not sure how this’ll find its feet in the market right now.
