Huawei has been on a roll lately, offering a wide variety of handsets for the first half of 2017. Now, the firm has announced its latest entries, the Nova 2 and the Nova 2 Plus.
The Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus share the same innards, with the main difference being that that former has a 5-inch 1080p display, while the latter bumps it up to a 5.5-inches. The exterior design borrows a lot from past creations, but looks simple and pleasing to the eye.
Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus specifications:
- Kirin 659 processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB storage with microSD expansion
- 12MP and 8MP rear camera
- 20MP front-facing camera
- fingerprint reader
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- 2950mAh battery
- USB Type-C
- Android 7.0 Nougat
If there is one specification that stands out from the pack, it's the 20MP front-facing camera. This should be a huge selling point for anyone that shoots selfies on a daily basis. Unfortunately, if you are located outside of Asia, you will most likely never have direct access to purchase them, and will instead need to rely on a third party retailer. Reservations for the units start on May 26, with the handsets making their official debut on June 16. Both will be offered in a variety of colors with the Nova 2 coming in at roughly $364, while the Nova 2 Plus will be a bit more at $423 USD.
