HMD Global has announced its most affordable Nokia device so far, the rumored Nokia 2.
The new Nokia phone has been presented in India a few hours ago.
The gesture of charging the phone at night has not become a gesture for that, but for his need. We are no longer in the era of the old Nokia whose battery lasted a week even making calls daily.
We are in the era of smartphones, multitasking terminals, and are used for everything from surfing the internet to playing games, buying online, working, broadcasting live, etc.
Is it hard for you to get to the end of the day with the cell phone battery? Well precisely Nokia returns to its beginnings and brings an Android phone with a battery for two days, the Nokia 2.

48 hours of autonomy
The Nokia 2 runs Android 7.1 Nougat pure and comes with the promise of HMD monthly security updates, as well as a future update to Android 8.0 Oreo.
Determined to return to the market that practically helped build and led, the Finnish Nokia has been presenting different models to cover all the current range. And after seeing a few months ago Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 mobile (its current top of range), today we were surprised with the announcement of Nokia 2, a smartphone but so low price that makes it directly into the economic range.
In fact it is the cheapest Nokia mobile with Android in the current catalog of the firm.
The Screen Resolution and Hardware
The new shoots of Nokia has a 5-inch LTPS panel with HD resolution, achieving a density of 293 ppi, is also protected with Gorilla Glass 3. Inside we find a Snapdragon 212 processor, Qualcomm’s new chipset, which has four cores at 1.3 Ghz and 32-bit architecture.
It is accompanied by an Adreno 304 GPU, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB internal memory with the possibility of being expandable via microSD.

It is framed in an aluminum chassis of the 6000 series that really gives it a mid-range mobile appearance. It should be noted that the latter is of the 6000 series,the same one that has been used in iPhone 6s and other high-end terminals.
The Nokia 2 comes with an aluminum body with a polycarbonate back cover. The star feature of the smartphone is its 2-day autonomy, according to the company. It also has IP52 protection.
Internally it is the first Nokia to use the Snapdragon 212 processor with 4 cores at 1.3 GHz. The terminal has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal space, along with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5MP front camera.
Obviously, and given its price, we are not going to have a powerful phone, but we are thinking above all for those who have to be checking the email and making calls. The operating system is Android 7.1.2 Nougat, but the surprise is that Nokia promises that the Nokia 2 will be upgraded to the new Android 8 Oreo.
The camera specs
In the photographic aspect we find an 8 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED Flash, while the front camera is 5 MP and has a fixed focus system.
During the presentation the Finns have emphasized that the Nokia 2 has a good image processing with which it gains better details and clarity in its photos, although it can not be demanded much for its price.

Nokia 2 comes in three color combinations – black, white and gold – and will go on sale in mid-November. The company has not shared details about availability in different countries, but has specified that there will be variants with a SIM and dual SIM.
And the main advantage of the terminal is not its power or performance, but its autonomy, since the Nokia 2 is designed so that all its components consume the minimum.
If we add to that the battery of the device, it is 4100 mAh – we do not usually see them like this or in the high range of mobile phones of 1000 USD – we have a phone that can hold up to two days in full use without having to recharge, an absolute rare view among current smartphones, whatever the range to which they belong.
The Nokia 2 comes with modest specifications but, like other Nokia devices, it is the pure Android experience that is most interesting in this smartphone.
