One day after Honor kicked off pre-orders for its new Honor 7X smartphone, details on a new device from Honor parent company Huawei have surfaced.

The Huawei Nova 2s has leaked out. An image of the front of the device has been shared by Evan Blass that shows a smartphone with a tall display and small bezels. It’s got what looks to be a slim fingerprint reader below the screen and what may be a pair of front-facing cameras above the display.

Meanwhile, a report from GSMArena claims to have some spec details for this Huawei Nova 2s. It’s said that this device is packing a Kirin 960 processor, 6-inch 2160×1080 display with 18:9 display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.

The Nova 2s reportedly features a dual rear camera setup with 20-megapixel and 16-megapixel sensors while the front of the phone is home to 20-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. Rounding out the phone’s rumored feature set is Android 8.0 Oreo.

It’s expected that Huawei will introduce the Nova 2s tomorrow, December 7th, so we may not have to wait long for all of the details to come out.

VSCO rolls out Messages, because every image sharing platform needs a built-in messenger

It’s like there’s a recipe for image sharing social networks: 1) launch the service with some hook to make it special against the thousands of other competitors, 2) wait until there are enough uses and add a messenger so people can talk to each other without ever leaving your app, 3) launch a Snapchat-like auto-distruct feature, 4) separate all 3 features into their own standalone apps. VSCO has graduated from step 1 to step 2.
