China’s Huawei officially introduced us to two new smartphones, the nova 2 and nova 2 Plus, that pack an impressive set of cameras and some good prices.
The smartphones are pretty much similar. Both of them have dual cameras at the back, a 12 MP + 8 MP sensors combo and at the front we find a 20 MP selfie snapper. Huawei’s flagship, the P10 has only 8 MP.
Both smartphones feature metal unibodies and differ mainly in screen – 5” for the smaller model, 5.5” for the plus. Both are LPTS LCDs with 1080p resolution, both are covered with 2.5D curved glass.
The metal bodies measure only 6.9mm thick for both phones, quite slender. Still, the battery capacity is decent – 2,950mAh and 3,340mAh. Note that the Snapdragon 625 chipset of the first-gen has been replaced by a new Kirin 659 chipset.
The Huawei nova 2 and nova 2 plus pack a lot of memory for their price – 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 4GB RAM/128GB storage respectively. The nova 2 will cost CNY 2,500 ($365/€325), the nova 2 plus is CNY 2,900 ($420/€375), You can put down a CNY 100 deposit to book a unit today, sales start June 16.
