This week, Huawei announced both the Nova 2 and the larger Nova 2 Plus. This announcement isn’t any surprise at all because they recently confirmed that they would announce these handsets soon, which they’ve done now. They have some improved specs and a new design, compared to the Nova and Nova Plus that were launched back in 2016.
There are only three differences between the phones. The Nova 2 Plus comes with a larger display, bigger battery, and more built-in storage. However, both have a metal body with a color of your choice just like their predecessors.
The Nova 2 is rocking a 5-inch full HD display, and we can find a Huawei branding below it. Under the hood, we can find a HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, 64GB of storage, as well as 4GB of RAM. On the rear, a dual 12MP and 8MP camera can be seen. The front-facing selfie-shooter is 20MP, which is pretty impressive. When the 2,960mAh battery runs out of juice, you can recharge it with a USB Type-C charger. The handset also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and Android 7.0 with Huawei custom EMUI 5.1 on top.
The slightly bigger Nova 2 Plus comes with a larger 5.5-inch full HD display, 128GB of storage, and a bigger 3,309mAh battery. Other than that, the specs are the same.
Unfortunately, these devices are just available in China for $423 respectively $465 right now. The colors you can choose between are gold, green, blue, rose gold, and black. Huawei hasn’t confirmed if they’ll launch the Nova 2 and 2 Plus in more countries or not.
