Back in September of last year, at IFA in Berlin, Huawei launched a new series of smartphones named nova (yes, with lowercase 'n').

Now, the company has announced the second generation of the nova series - the nova 2 and nova 2 plus. The biggest difference, compared to its predecessor, is that the new models come with a dual rear camera setup.
