At IFA 2016 in September, Huawei unveiled a very Nexus 6P-like device with the Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus. The devices are nestled in the budget smartphone market, and it seems Huawei is nearing the launch of the Huawei Nova’s successor.
Earlier this month, the Nova 2 passed through China’s TENAA certifications, giving us a look at what’s to come. But now, Huawei has announced an event will take place on May 26th where it’s likely we’ll see the Nova 2.
Thanks to those TENAA listings, the Nova 2 features an all-new design, moving away from the Nexus 6P design. Instead, it seems that we will see an all aluminum design, with a solid glass front and no home button.
The rear of the device shows a dual-camera setup which is rumored to feature 2 12MP sensors, along with a flash placed to the right. Centered on the rear of the Nova 2 will be the popular fingerprint scanner, but it’s unlikely this will serve any other purpose.
We’re still a few weeks away from the Huawei Nova 2 announcement, so we’ll have to wait to see the full spec sheet for the device.
