Nokia 2 with BIG 4100mAh battery goes official | Specs, Price and Release date

Nokia 2 goes official

After lots of rumors and leaks about the Nokia 2 we now finally get to see the real device. HMD Global has officially launched the Nokia 2 smartphone at the launch event held in India. Nokia 2 is the youngest member of the Nokia smartphone family and is targetted at the low-end smartphone market. 

Nokia 2 is a low-end smartphone running on stock Android Nougat with a promised update to Android Oreo. The phone is powered by an SD212 Processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be further expanded up to 128GB. Nokia 2 comes with a 5" 720p LTPS display which is bright and also consumes less power. Nokia 2 comes with an 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED Flash and a 5MP Fixed focus camera at front. The main highlighting feature of Nokia 2 is its 4100mAh big battery which according to HMD Global should last for around 2 days. 

Nokia 2 is a low-end phone without any compromise on the build quality. Nokia 2 comes with a sturdy metal frame made out of a single block of 6000 series aluminium and the back has a sturdy polycarbonate shell under which you will find dual sim card slots and a dedicated microSD card slot. The entire front is protected by Gorilla Glass which is rarely seen on phones at this price range. The phone comes with IP52 Dust and water resistance which is another rare feature in this price segment.

Now, coming to the price and availability, Nokia 2 is priced at a global average of €99 and is expected to be available from mid-November in three different color options - Pewter/White, Pewter/Black and Copper/Black. Same as all other Nokia smartphones, I would assume Nokia 2 will be priced less than the global average price in Asian countries. I would assume the Indian pricing to be around Rs.6000-6500/-

New Delhi, India, 31 October 2017 – HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the launch of the Nokia 2. Nokia phones are associated with great battery life; today, we announce a smartphone that takes it to a whole new level. With two-day battery lifei, the Nokia 2 is built to keep going long after other smartphones need recharging.

“People rely on their phones so much these days with many people subconsciously rationing their battery life when out and about so they can last the day. We don’t think you should have to do less with your phone which is why we created a smartphone that can power through when other devices need a pit stop.

With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones. To make this a reality, 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 to give fans a long-lasting phone they can rely on.”
