Huawei announces Nova series at IFA 2016

Huawei announced today a new series of phones called Nova. There are 2 phones in the series, The Nova which is 5-inches with the larger Nova Plus (I would have gone with SuperNova!) being 5.5-inches.

These both seem to be in the midrange arena as far as Android phones are concerned, with 3 GB of ram for both Snapdragon 625 2GHZ processors and 32GB of storage for each. The Nova has a 12-megapixle back camera and 8-megapixel front while the larger Nova Plus has 16-megapixel back and the same 8-megapixel front camera as the smaller Nova. Both also have expandable memory up to 128GB with microSD slots. USB Type-C is used for charging and syncing on both phones as well as fingerprint scanners on the back of each phone.

The Nova has a 3,020 mAh battery and the Nova Plus has 3,340 mAh. Both phones will release in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia in the next few months. But the only pricing announced was for Europe which will be 399 euros and 429 euros respectively, that converts to $445 for the Nova and $480 for the Nova Plus. Availability for the US has not been announced as of yet, but when it is announced I would expect the prices to be similar to other phones in the midrange between $350 and $450.
