The Huawei Nova 2S will be launched on December 7th in Beijing, China (or later tonight for those in the US), according to numerous reports, and many leaks already give us a good idea of what the latest Nova phone will be like.

The latest look at the Huawei Nova 2S, tweeted out by Venture Beat’s Evan Blass, shows the front of the Nova 2S in bright blue. It shows very skinny bezels, with dual front cameras, and notably, an oblong home button that doubles up as a fingerprint reader and barely fits on the bottom bezel.

The front of the Huawei Nova 2S fits in with the ongoing wave of big-screen/small-bezel phones including the OnePlus 5T and the latest from Huawei’s own Honor line, the Honor V10, which was just launched yesterday.

Numerous leaks about the Huawei Nova 2S already hint at the phone’s specs. The dual front cameras are 20-megapixel and 2-megapixel, and the Nova 2S has two more rear cameras that are 20-megapixel and 16-megapixel with a dual LED flash, according to a spec leak reported by Android Headlines today. The screen has a full HD 6-inch display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone will reportedly run Android 8.0 Oreo and has a 3,340mAh battery. It’s got a HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, 6GB of RAM, and storage options of 64GB through 256GB.

Another leak from December 4th, reported by, suggests that the Huawei Nova 2S will cost $392.92 for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB SSD option. It appears to come in black, white, and the tiffany blue that Blass’ leak showed. An invite for tomorrow’s Huawei event has been making the rounds, which says in Chinese that an even more beautiful phone is coming:
