Today Huawei announced a new full-screen phone dubbed Nova 2S. As the name suggests, this is the improved variant of the Huawei Nova 2 launched in June 2017. But this is the third model from this line. The first model carrying a Nova family name was announced in 2016. This line has been developed for younger masses. It differs from Huawei’s P and Mate line models a lot. All Huawei Nova smartphones were launched to bring trendy features to younger customers. Thus they are way more affordable than Honor, Mate, and P line devices. So it’s quite interesting how this smartphone line performs.
