HMD Global has announced a new budget Nokia smartphone, called the Nokia 2. This is the most affordable smartphone from the company, and claims to have a 2 day battery life.
The Nokia 2 features an aluminium frame and a polycarbonate body. There’s a 5-inch 720p display up front that’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Internally, there’s a Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of in-built storage. There’s also a micro SD expandable slot, Bluetooth 4.1, 4G VoLTE, WiFi, and a headphone jack.
In the camera department, you will have to make do with an 8 MP shooter at the back, and a 5 MP rear camera. And that’s not too bad at all, for an entry level smartphone. However, the most highlighting feature of this phone is the 4000 mAh battery, which according to HMD, gives the Nokia 2 a two-day battery life.
The company states that the Nokia 2 is mainly aimed at the people who’re looking for an entry level smartphone with battery life being the most sought feature. The phone will be priced around $110, will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and available for sale in mid-November.
Nokia currently has the Nokia 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8 for sale, which is now joined by the Nokia 2. The best part is that the entire army of phones will get updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, starting with the Nokia 8.
