With the Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus, the Chinese company will soon be presenting two new mid-class smartphones, which have at least been optically revised significantly and this time actually match. The similarity to the iPhone is unmistakable.
Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus with dual camera
One of the most important innovations of the Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus is the use of the dual camera, which Huawei now uses in almost all its smartphones. In contrast to the P10 smartphones without Leica branding, but the quality should be very similar – the test of the Honor 8 Pro has shown. The new dual camera is supported only by a single LED flash. There is no laser autofocus.
Huawei has a bit too much oriented on the iPhone with the Nova 2 smartphones and unhappily also the camera hump is taken over. This would have been better with the only minimal outstanding camera to solve better and a direct conclusion with the rear can realize – even if the smartphone thereby 0.1 mm thicker fails.
Fortunately, Huawei has not taken over the Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus the Home button and fingerprint scanner at the front. This sits on the new Nova smartphones still on the back. The product design of the company is not really true. On the P10 smartphones, the fingerprint scanner sits on the front under the display.
The front of the Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2, however, is absolutely unspectacular and could also come from another Huawei smartphone. Only the unibody housing of metal pulls to the front and lets the pink housing at the edges through.
Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus in two sizes
The Nova 2 should have a screen diagonal of 5.1 inches, the Nova 2 Plus of 5.5 inches and the medium-class processor Kirin 660 will be used. Further details are not yet known. Optical differences exist only in the size, with the predecessors were basically two different smartphones, which have however a name divided. Otherwise, the devices hardly had something in common. The presentation took place at the IFA 2016 in Europe. When Huawei wants to reveal the Nova-2 smartphones remains open.
