Nokia is back with a bang. After reuniting with the HMD Global, Nokia has launched their cheapest smartphone without compromising on anything. The Nokia 2 is priced at 99 Euros (INR 7500) only, making it the most inspiring Android smartphone till date.
To start with the build quality and design, the device is constructed using single Aluminium block with a replaceable back case in multiple colour shades. So, the build quality is on par with their premium smartphone lineup (Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8).
In terms of tech specifications, the device offers a standard 5.0-inch LTPS TFT touch panel with 720p IPS LCD screen, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass on the top. Underneath, the device offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 mobile solution, paired with 1 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 8 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot (up to 128 GB). Just like any Android smartphones, the device offers dual SIM card slot with 4G LTE and VoLte capability on both the slots.
With respect to the camera capability, the device offers an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing selfie camera with HD video recording capability. So, if these are the same cameras like the one found on the Nokia 3, the device should perform well under the normal lightening condition. The 4100 mAh Li-ion battery can last up to 2 complete working day with more than 1o hours of on-screen usage.
Finally, coming to the operating system, the device comes with Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box with a promised update to Android Oreo in the near future. Nokia is committed to providing future software updates and security updates for next 18 months, so, this will be a device that one can expect to offer seamless user experience at all the cost.
However, there is no exact date of availability or price details of the Nokia 2. So, what do you think about the Nokia 2? Share your views in the comments below.
