After a few days of teasing, Huawei has officially revealed the Nova 2 Lite in the Philippines. Check out the specs below.
The Huawei Nova 2 Lite can be considered as the toned-down variant of the Nova 2i with a lower screen resolution, Snapdragon chipset instead of Kirin, lower camera resolution, single front camera, and smaller RAM, storage, and battery capacity.
From the looks of it, the 2 Lite will be aimed at consumers that wish to experience the 2i’s features albeit with lower specs. Powering the device is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 instead of any of the company’s own Kirin chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The phone’s dual rear camera setup consists of your standard 13MP shooter and a 2MP wide-aperture bokeh lens with 7 adjustment levels. Again unlike the 2i, the 2 Lite only has a single 8MP front camera accompanied by a soft-light LED flash with a color rendering index (CRI).
Apart from all that, it comes with Face Unlock, EMUI 8, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo right out of the box.

Same specs as the 2-year-old Cloudfone Next. Which is now half the price of this new huawei.
HUAWEI Nova 2 Lite is NOT a good phone. I actually spent time looking at the demo unit at the mall. The one thing that is very disappointing is the screen with TEPID color and and poor brightness. My old Samsung S5 has a better screen quality and I am using 1/4 of the brightness control. This Huawei’s screen brightness is so poor I need to slide the brightness control to 100% to match my Samsung S5’s 25% brightness while using it indoors.
