The 20MP front camera of HUAWEI nova 2 Plus is boasted with photography capabilities for every scenario, including 3D facial recognition and skin enhancement. Its LCD screen flash with 11 color temperatures for different degrees of illumination, provides excellent photo quality even in low light. The front camera is also able to shoot selfies with a bokeh effect, creating the blurred background similar to that generated by wide-aperture professional portraits. With an all-new 10-grade beautification mode and a new gesture shutter for taking pictures, HUAWEI nova 2 Plus makes the perfect selfies much easier than before.

HUAWEI nova 2 Plus is available in colors including Graphite Black, Prestige Gold and Aurora Blue and retails at RM1,999.
