The Apple iPhone is the smartphone brand to beat, so it’s not surprising to see Huawei throw their hat into the ring. What’s really surprising though is what they are tossing into the same ring as the iPhone 7 Plus – the Huawei nova 2 Plus.

Seriously. That was not a typo. Huawei is indeed pitting the nova 2 Plus (Amazon | Lazada) against the iPhone 7 Plus. Check out this slide for yourself.

Huawei Pits The nova 2 Plus Against The iPhone 7 Plus!

While anyone can compare any smartphone against the iPhone 7 Plus, we are pretty sure Apple (and iPhone fans) will strongly disagree that the iPhone 7 Plus is a mid-range device.

Even when we compared the ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom to the iPhone 7 Plus, we avoided pegging them at the same level. Heck, the price tag alone puts it in the stratosphere…

Let’s take a closer look at the nova 2 Plus, and see why Huawei thinks it’s a worthy challenger to the vaunted iPhone 7 Plus.
