Huawei seems to be working on the second generation of Nova series, which is reported to be known as Nova 2. Recently, the smartphone was spotted on Chinese certification site, TENAA, which gives a glimpse of the upcoming device.
The smartphones carry a different design language as compared to its predecessor and lookidentical to iPhone 7 contrary to last year’s Nova which was identical to the Nexus 6P. To start with, you get a black front panel with company’s logo sitting at the chin, while the top houses a front shooter and earpiece. The back carries antenna lines that are very reminiscent of Apple’s latest flagship devices. Most noticeable thing is the dual camera setup at the back, which means that the company is heavily investing in this segment and we might see more devices from Huawei sporting dual-camera setup.
