The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei is back again with its latest Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus. With the special launch of this duo, Huawei puts another effort in its smartphone business to flourish in China and overseas. The success story behind Nova and Nova plus is already known and this time, the successors are expected to carry forward the legacy.
