The company HMD Global, which is responsible for the brand Nokia Mobile, has presented its most budget new product. Here’s what you need to know about the Nokia 2 model.
After numerous data leaks, the Finnish company officially introduced the Nokia 2 model. This smartphone is designed for less demanding users.
The quality of performance should be good.
Despite the fact that Nokia 2 is the cheapest smartphone HMD, Finns still decided to take care of the quality of its performance. The smartphone has an aluminum frame, and its rear panel is made of polycarbonate with profiled edges. The manufacturer also made a longitudinal camera module, which called for an association with Nokia 5, 6 and even 8.
The front is a layer of tempered glass, which is designed to protect the 5-inch IPS display, made on technology LTPS. Finns – which is very important – even in this model used glass Gorilla Glass, instead of solutions of lesser known and cheaper companies, such as Asahi Glass.
4100 mAh and only two days of work?
The 5-inch screen works with HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), and the phone’s brain is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212. This is one of the weakest processors in the US company’s assortment, which is based on four Cortex-A7 cores (1.3 GHz) and Adreno 304.
Nokia 2 will not be a speed demon, as I already mentioned in other articles. Users will also receive two cameras with matrices at 8 megapixels (main) and 5 megapixels (front), and a battery with a capacity of 4100 mAh. HMD said that the battery is the key advantage of the device.
On one charge, Nokia 2 has to endure two days of work, but the Finns said that it will show this result if users use their smartphone for 5 hours a day.

Budget will receive Android Oreo.
The smartphone runs on pure Android version 7.1.1 Nougat. This model will be the first device from this price range, which will support Google Assistant.
The company coped and optimized the Google system better than in Nokia 3, which has a better specification. There are also chances that Nokia 2 will get Android 8.0 Oreo.
This rarely happens that the manufacturer clearly indicates that his budget device will receive the latest version of the Google operating system. But in this case, it’s very important, since Oreo thanks to the Android Go initiative, it’s better than Noug to cope on equipment with a weaker specification.
Price and this time will do wonders?
I’m sure that Nokia 2 will enjoy great popularity, despite the characteristics. This smartphone is made very high quality, has a large battery and Nokia logo, and it will also be sold for little money. I am sure that many undemanding users will choose this smartphone.
Nokia 2 in the European market will appear in mid-November and will be available in three colors (black, white and copper black). Its price was fixed at 99 euros.
