Huawei Nova 2 News: Huawei Nova 2 Has Been Certified By TENAA

China-based regulatory agency TENAA has revealed images for the Huawei Nova 2. Although Huawei released the mid range Nova series in the October of 2016, its successor is already greenlighted for release sometime in the coming months. Huawei plans for a China market distribution for the first couple of months. 

The images posted on TENAA show a different design for the Nova series, which earlier took from the Huawei Nexus 6P design. According to GizBot, the phone has a very visible antenna lines that are reminiscent of the new iPhone 7. The phone also has a large chin which sports the Huawei branding.

The phone has a fingerprint scanner at the back, and also has a dual camera setup. The Huawei Nova 2 seems to be promising even though its spec sheet hasn't been released yet. It is speculated by BGR that the Nova 2 would come in two variants namely the Nova 2 and the Nova 2 Plus. 

The Nova 2 Plus might be coming with a bigger screen, and both phones would have 2.5D glass around its screen. Last year's Nova also had two variants with the same spec sheet. The Nova Plus was a bigger phone that looked like the Huawei Mate series while the standard Nova looked like a Nexus 6P.

The new Nova phones might step away from adopting a SnapDragon 6 series SoC and might instead use a Hisilicon Kirin SoC. Last year's Nova used a SnapDragon 625 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. The phone also had a camera of 12MP for the primary lens and 8MP for selfies. 

Since the Nova 2 is coming with a dual camera setup, it can be speculated that the primary camera is having a monochrome lens along with a normal lens, like the Huawei Honor 6X. If that is the case then the camera performance would undoubtedly be superior to the 2016's Nova.
