Huawei Nova 2 Plus coming soon to the U.S.

The new Nova 2 series was officially unveiled earlier this year, but none of the smartphones announced made it outside China. However, that's about to change since the Nova 2 Plus has just been spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission) where they have been approved for a U.S. release.

The smartphones go by model numbers Huawei BAC-L03 and BAC-L23, whereas the Chinese version has a different model number (BAC-AL00). The two smartphones listed at FCC are two variations of the same device, which is why we believe the United States won't be the only country where the Nova 2 Plus smartphones will be available for purchase very soon.

Huawei BAC-L03 is the single SIM version of the Nova 2 Plus, while the BAC-L23 is the dual-SIM variant. Both phones received FCC certification recently and could make their debut outside China in the coming weeks.

Huawei Nova 2 Plus is a mid-ranger that features a large 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display and a massive 3,340 mAh battery. Also, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory (expandable up to 256GB).

More importantly, the Nova 2 Plus is a cheaper alternative for those who absolutely must own a smartphone with a dual-camera setup. Huawei's handset comes with 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras on the back, along with an impressive 20-megapixel selfie camera.

Huawei Nova 2 Plus runs Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and costs around €400 in China, but it might be priced higher in other regions.

Apple was the first to have a dual camera smartphone, nice to see Android OEMs finally playing catch-up

Teue, even Graham Bell was playing catch-up to Apple when he came up with the first phone.

Strange, Honor 9 is about 29 Euro more, why not just get it instead?

I don't understand why they don't include 3D shooting capability to the dual cameras
