Huawei debuts Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus with 20MP front-facing camera

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.
