Selfie Addicts Will Like the Huawei Nova 2 -- and Not for the Dual Rear Cameras

21 August 2017 |

It’s been a long time coming and finally here it is! Up your selfie game with Huawei Nova 2’s 20MP front camera. Now, say bye-bye to pixel-filled and out-of-focus selfies.

Smartphones today have relentlessly evolved by how their primary cameras work, embedding as many pro-photography features as possible. However, front-facing cameras haven’t really seen much evolution since they became a thing in smartphones. Considering a selfie camera is the go-to shooter of most people who just like to snap a photo of themselves on a day-to-day basis, it’s worth noting that selfie snappers are as relevant as the primary camera.

Finally, Huawei has finally taken the unpopular route that most smartphone manufacturers chose to ignore, that is to invest in its front-facing camera. One of their latest flagship devices is the Huawei Nova 2 – a smartphone with a top-notch selfie cam. It features a 20 Megapixel front camera and 12 Megapixel primary camera. The 20 MP front camera is more than just a selfie snapper; it serves a lot of purposes that will enrich and improve the way you use your smartphone.

Facial recognition

Keeping your phone secured and at the same time immediately accessible has never been this easy. Simply snap your face and instantly unlock your phone. Same security measures can be applied to the rest of the phone’s apps or interface! This feature is the perfect replacement or backup for the phone’s fingerprint security option.

Selfie like a pro!

The front camera isn’t just embellished with outstanding sensor and resolution, its kit also includes a bokeh effect. This is a feature that creates a blurred background which is similar to the effect of wide-aperture professional portraits. Its 10-level beautification mode and gesture shutter make it easy to take perfect selfies.

Low-light (front camera) photography

Huawei incorporates many fun camera features to its front camera. In low-light conditions, the Nova 2 uses an LCD screen flash with 11 color temperatures for different degrees of illumination – making portraits really pop.

Dual rear camera!

To complement the edgy front camera of the Huawei Nova 2, the phone comes equipped with a dual rear camera. One is a 12MP and the other an 8MP sensor. One sensor boasts optical zoom for that up close and personal shot without having to move an inch, another can do precise focus in low-light environments. Plus, both cameras when combined boasts a live bokeh effect to play around with your visual creativity.

Elegant and cutting edge

The Huawei Nova 2 may be a selfie-centric smartphone, but that description is just the icing on the cake. This smartphone packs a lot of punch inside out. It sports an elegant yet ergonomic design – smooth metallic unibody which is just 6.9mm thick with a rounded design which flows to the back of the device, and a wave-textured power button. It’s powered by an Octa-core processor with 4GB RAM that could last a day with a moderate use; all thanks to its fast charging 3340 mAh battery.
