Huawei today announced that a new system update for the Mate 9 series will be rolling out beginning 9 December 2017 which will bring the latest version of EMUI 8.0 to the phones.

The phone has a 6-inch full HD+ (2160 x 1080) display, 2.5D curved glass, the aspect ratio of 18:9, HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC which has 64-bit octa-core and GPU that is Mali G71 Octa-core.

Huawei, one of the first OEMs to unveil a smartphone powered by Android Oreo out of the box, has just started rolling out the same Oreo treat to its older handsets. One will have RAM 4GB and storage 64GB while the other will have RAM 6GB and storage 64GB.

Apart from this, the Nova 2s smartphone offers nearly all types of connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, and Wi-Fi. The special edition of Nova 2s is called "Yixing Zhang" variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB of Memory Storage, which carries a different price tag.

And then we have the Nova 2S' four camera configuration. The smartphone comes with a dual camera setup on the rear with 12MP+20MP Combo, sporting OIS, 2X Optical Zoom, etc. The special edition Huawei Nova 2s smartphone is priced at CNY 3,399. For selfies and Video calling there is a dual front camera in front with 20MP and 2MP sensors. Connectivity options on the smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 4G LTE with VoLTE voice calling support, Bluetooth, GPS and USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. Much like the Huawei Mate 10, it also sports a fingerprint sensor on the bottom of the display - it's quite impressive how Huawei managed to fit the sensor in such a small area.
