Huawei is all set to introduce the flagship P20-series smartphones in Paris later this month, but that didn’t stop the company from launching other series of smartphones. The company has introduced the mid-range Nova 2 Lite in Philippines. Among the highlights of the smartphone is the 5.99-inch FullView display with 18:9 aspect ratio and dual-camera setup at the back.
For biometric authentication, the smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back, and Face Unlock feature too. The Huawei Nova 2 Lite is priced at PHP 9,990 (approximately Rs 12,500), and will go on sale starting March 23. However, there is no word on whether or not the smartphone will be launched in India. At its price point, the Nova 2 Lite will take on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.
