Huawei launched two new mid rangers called the Nova 2 and Nova 2 plus.
Both the nova 2 and nova 2 plus feature a metal unibody design.
The Nova 2 features a 6.9mm-thick metal body, a 5-inch LTPS 2.5D display with a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, an octa-core Kirin 659 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of native storage space and microSD support for up to 128 GB of additional storage.
The Nova 2 comes with a 12MP/8MP dual rear camera setup, an impressive 20MP front-facing shooter, and a 2950mAh battery. The smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner, and Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s own EMUI 5.1 on top.
The larger Huawei Nova 2 Plus, sports a 5.5-inch full HD display, 128 GB of storage, and a 3,340 mAh battery. The rest of the specifications, including the processor, RAM, cameras and everything else are identical to those of the Nova 2.
Both smartphones will come in several colours, including black, gold, rose gold, blue, and green. The Nova 2 costs 2,499 RMB (approx RM 1500), while the Nova 2 Plus goes up to 2,899 (approx RM 1810).
Huawei is currently taking preorders for the two smartphones in China, with a 99 RMB deposit that secures your place and gives you a free selfie stick and leather case. The phones will hit the shelves on June 16. No additional information about wider availability, so we don’t know if the Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus will make it to Malaysia or other markets.
