It was reported last week that Huawei will launch the successor to the Nova, called Nova 2, on May 26. The company was also tipped to launch the Nova 2 Plus alongside the Nova 2. Fresh leaks have now outed some of the specifications of the Nova 2, specifically detailing the processor and cameras.
The Huawei Nova 2 is tipped to sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display and will be powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 658 processor. This differs from past reports which suggest a Snapdragon 660 SoC, but could well be a variant for some countries. Meanwhile, the new report suggest a 20-megapixel front camera, dual rear camera setup (12-megapixel + 8-megapixel lens) and a 3000mAh battery, most of which keep in line with past rumours.
Based on the leaks so far, you can expect the Huawei Nova 2 to come in Green, Blue, and Pink colour options. It was also previously reported that the smartphone will be offered with 4GB of RAM. Additionally, the Nova 2 Plus with a 5.5-inch display is also being tipped to launch alongside the Nova 2, although details regarding the larger model are limited as of now. The Nova 2 is expected to start from CNY 2,500 (or roughly Rs. 23,200).
Earlier this month, the Huawei Nova 2 was also spotted on Chinese certification site TENAA, which revealed a dual camera setup and fingerprint sensor on the back. Notably, the Nova 2 does not seem to draw its design language from its predecessor. To recall, the Huawei Nova featured a band on the back similar to the Huawei P9. We’ll know more about the Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus as we approach the launch date.
