The Nova 2 Lite is targeted at those who prioritize camera performance above everything else, thanks to its dual rear cameras composed of a 12MP RGB sensor, coupled with a 2MP sensor for achieving the depth of field effect. The strength of the effect can even be customized to 7 levels, depending on the user’s preference.

With Phase Detection Auto-Focus, taking good quality shots in challenging conditions shouldn’t be a problem. The 8MP front camera has also been coupled with a toning flash to ensure that skin tone is always on point when taking those lovely selfies.

The device features a 5.99-inch 18:9 FullView display with HD+ resolution, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable with a microSD card. It packs a 3,000mAh battery and runs on EMUI 8.0 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo.
