HMD continues to slide in more Nokia phones where it sees an opportunity. this time around? a very low-cost smartphone that does not look awful and has enough battery to go the distance. The Nokia 2, priced at 100 Euros (roughly $120) walks that fine line between dreary specifications and also the fact that it’s just really very low-cost. Oh, and a giant 4,100mAh battery that puts it ahead of a lot of flagship smartphones.
Notably for this price, it’s running android nougat with Google Assistant in tow. Processor-wise, there is a Qualcomm snapdragon 212 processor to power a 5-inch 1280×720 lcd|LCD|digital display|alphanumeric display} display. Camera-wise, there is an 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. there is only 8GB of inbuilt storage, but there is the chance to expand that to 128GB with the microSD slot. The specification sheet reminds me of Samsung’s Galaxy S2 — secretly one of my most-liked phones ever. That, however, launched back in 2011.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD global, says that “every component of the Nokia 2 — from the display to battery, chipset to system design — has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery.” that is the main… draw here, alongside that cheerfully cheap price tag.
The renders suggest the phone is rather tasteful looking, but we’d reserve judgement there until we eye the thing in real life. It could be the true “festival phone”, and it’ll reportedly go on sale next month in certain regions, with a launch within the uk, at least, penned for 2018.
