Huawei in a recent event in China unveiled two mid-range phone under the Nova series. Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus are the new iterations of the last years Nova. Previous Nova series was great in other aspects but the camera was a major letdown, this time around Huawei seems to have fixed that by going all in on the Camera department.

Last gen Nova’s used the Snapdragon 625 chipsets but this around they’ve stuck with their own in-house chipset Kirin 659 coupled with 4GB of RAM. Storage-wise, the smaller one carries 64GB storage and the bigger Plus model carries 128GB storage.

The camera  is the feature focus on the phone. It comes with a dual-camera setup on the back where the primary shooter comes with a 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and the secondary shooter comes with an 8MP sensor. The dual lens setup is for optical zoom and portrait modes. Up front, the phone holds a 20MP camera. For a mid-range phone that’s too much firepower on the camera department.

Despite the slim construct of the phone, they come with a respectable battery size of 2,950mAh(Nova 2) and 3,340mAh(Nova 2 Plus) battery. Nova 2 is priced at $365 and the Nova 2 Plus is priced at $420 and will begin selling from June 16.
