HMD Global today at a scheduled event in India has taken the veil off the latest in its Android smartphone roster- the Nokia 2. The Nokia 2 is coming days after HMD announced the Nokia 7, which is its first Android device to come with glass back.
With a €99 price tag, the Nokia 2 really has so much to offer. First, the device is made out of a 6000 series aluminum frame with a polycarbonate back. HMD Global says the device is splash-proof with IP52 ratings, this invariably means splashing water against the device from any direction shall have no harmful effect.
What is more interesting, the Nokia 2 comes fitted with a non-removable 4100mAh battery which we are told can take you up to 2 days of battery life on a single charge.
On the display front, the Nokia 2 features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 212 Mobile Platform with Adreno 304 GPU. Perhaps the only weak point of the device is its low RAM and low storage, the device has just 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage, but not to worry as there is room for storage expansion up to 128GB with microSD.
Other specs include a 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED Flash, a 5MP front-facing camera and full connectivity options including 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS / GLONASS. The Nokia 2 boot Android Nougat out of the box, but we are told it should be upgraded to Oreo soonest.
You should be able to get the Nokia 2 from mid-November in copper, black, and white color options at a global price of about 100 Euros (US$ 115 / Rs. 7465 approx.).
