The HUAWEI nova 2 and HUAWEI nova 2 Plus are available in the Kuwait market from August 1, 2017. Redefining the Selfie: Clear Portraits Taken Anywhere
Smartphone users are demanding increasingly high-quality photography experiences – especially for their selfies. To appeal to young consumers, the HUAWEI nova 2 series is equipped with photography applications for every scenario. Its 20MP front camera, combined with Huawei’s 3D facial recognition and optimized beauty 4.0, delivers crisp and clear portraits.
Huawei’s high-resolution photography capabilities are based on a range of intelligent algorithms, including a specific portrait algorithm. This takes into account a wide range of face shapes and skin colors, studying the relative position of facial features and skin types as well as textures to deliver more natural and true-to-life portraits.
Additionally, Huawei incorporates a number of fun camera features to the front camera. In low-light conditions, the HUAWEI nova 2 series uses LCD screen flash with 11 color temperatures for different degrees of illumination – making portraits really pop. The front camera is also able to shoot selfies with a bokeh effect, creating the blurred background similar to that generated by wide-aperture professional portraits. With a new 10-level beautification mode and a new gesture shutter for taking pictures, perfect selfies become that much easier.
The amazing front camera is complemented by a stellar rear camera. HUAWEI nova 2 and HUAWEI nova 2 Plus are outfitted with a 12MP+8MP rear dual camera to capture more stunning and detailed images. The dual RGB lenses deliver optical zoom without compromising quality. For fast and precise focus in low-light environments, the rear camera features a F1.8 aperture. In addition to portrait mode, the bokeh effect can be adjusted after a picture is taken to achieve different visual effects.
Innovative Design: Cutting-edge Craftsmanship for an Elegant Look
The HUAWEI nova 2 series’ design is testament to the power of creativity and innovation. From the 5.0/5.5-inch screen, to the smooth metallic unibody measuring as little 6.9mm, special attention has been given to all aspects of the HUAWEI nova 2 and HUAWEI nova 2 Plus to ensure they appeal to, and fit, the busy lifestyles of young consumers.
Huawei implemented a smooth, rounded design as opposed to sharp lines on the HUAWEI nova 2 series. The HUAWEI nova 2 series features a unique shallow fingerprint design. The sensor’s design reduces the chance of it collecting dirt and dust, ensuring continuous, seamless performance.
The HUAWEI nova 2 series’ chic design and trendsetting selfie functionality is backed by the HUAWEI Kirin 659 chipset powerhouse. The combination of the Kirin 659 chipset with EMUI 5.1 and Android 7.0 ensures that the series will not slow down over time, and will continue to produce flawless performance.
In addition to its thin and lightweight design, the HUAWEI nova 2 series sets itself apart on account of its exceptional battery life and quick charging solution. It takes the HUAWEI nova 2 and HUAWEI nova 2 Plus just 30 minutes to power-up to 39% and 43% respectively, a feature that is crucial for busy lifestyles.
Professional Music: Theater-quality HiFi Music for A Super Audio Experience
Working in tandem with professional musicians, including Rainer Maillard, a Grammy Award-winning master who won the prize for Best Engineered Album, Classical, the HUAWEI nova 2 series delivers an incomparable audio experience, with upgraded software and hardware.
HUAWEI nova 2 and HUAWEI nova 2 Plus feature HiFi chips, which minimize distortion, harmonics, noise and other disturbance with audio processing to make music unforgettable. Huawei also applied the HUAWEI 2012 lab’s sound algorithm HUAWEI Histen for the first time – an algorithm that includes 10 targeted modules for various effects, such as 3D stereo sound.
To ensure premium sound quality, the HUAWEI nova 2 series support aptX wireless Bluetooth technology, which, when it comes to videos and games, has the shortest time lag of all Bluetooth audio coding. This ensures a more synchronized image and sound experience, emulating that of a CD.
