Huawei unveiled the nova 2 and nova 2 plus handsets back in May, but so far these have only been sold in the company’s home country of China. That, however, should change soon – at least for the bigger nova 2 plus. That’s because the US FCC has recently certified two new versions of this smartphone.
While the nova 2 plus sold in China has the model number BAC-AL00, the FCC has given its go-ahead to the BAC-L03 and BAC-L23. These will thus be offered in markets other than China. The BAC-L03 will be a single-SIM version, while the BAC-L23 will come with dual-SIM functionality.
As usual, the FCC certification process doesn’t reveal where the device will be launched, but since Huawei has a global footprint in smartphone sales, expect it to reach a lot of new markets in due course. The nova 2 plus comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, the Kirin 659 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 3,340 mAh battery. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat underneath Huawei’s EMUI 5.1, and it’s got a dual rear camera setup (12 MP + 8 MP). The front-facing shooter has a whopping 20 MP resolution for very detailed selfies.
