Huawei nova 2 stars in blurry hands-on video ahead of its announcement tomorrow

25 May 2017

Tomorrow, Huawei is holding an event in China during which it will make the nova 2 smartphone official. This successor to the original nova from last year has been the subject of many leaks recently, as well as a teaser campaign put forth by Huawei.

And now, as we enter the last few hours before the announcement, someone has recorded a blurry ten-second hands-on video showing the blue Huawei nova 2. You can see the most relevant captures below, if you don't mind their low quality.

This once again confirms the design of the nova 2, which is quite a departure from what we've seen in its predecessor - which had a more Nexus 6P-like look, especially on the back.

The nova 2 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, the Kirin 658 chipset, a 12 MP + 8 MP dual rear camera setup, a 20 MP snapper for selfies, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It is to be offered in black, green, and pink, aside from the blue hue you can see above. Pricing should start at CNY 2,500, or $364 at the current exchange rates. A bigger nova 2 Plus is going to be unveiled on the same occasion too.
