Nokia 2 goes official with 2-day battery life for €99

Software- In terms of software, the device will come with Android Nougat 7.1.1 which is a first for a phone in this segment.

Nokia, after its resurrection earlier previous year, has increasingly put India at the heart of things, and by carrying out the global launch of the Nokia 2 - the company's new budget king - in the NCR region, the smartphone maker has once again stressed that it sees India becoming its prime revenue generator in the coming days.

The company has included a battery of 4100mAh that Nokia says will last for a couple of days of normal use.

Regardless of the number of Nokia 2 handsets the company ends up selling, this will be far from being the best device that the budget buyer in the country deserves. So, which one is the best for you? The Nokia 2 still has the 3.5mm headphone jack along with FM radio.

The biggest feature of the Nokia 2 smartphone is its Battery. It's chassis is built using series 6000 aluminum, although the back still has a removable back cover.

The biggest strength of the Nokia 2 is its design. It feels expensive when you hold the phone in your hand, and that's a great feeling. The price of the Nokia 2 is set at Euro 99 and the exact Indian price will be unveiled sometime before the official sale.


For a phone that will have to take on the might of Xiaomi in the form of Redmi 4A, there's simply not enough under the hood for the fight.

"Nokia has always been a people's brand, and with the new avatar of Nokia mobiles we are looking to continue to be a people's brand and to bring our full range of portfolio of smart as well as feature phones to the consumers out there".

-Both the Nokia 2 and the Nokia 3 don't have a fingerprint scanner. It will be available in three colours: Pewter/Black, Pewter/White and Copper/Black. The Redmi 4 comes with a 5-inch HD display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor. The resolutions for each device are also the same: 720p. In comparison, Xiaomi Redmi 4A doesn't come protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.

Nokia 2 will ship with Android Nougat out of the box. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC processor.

Since launch, the camera app on the new Nokia smartphones has been criticized for being too basic and lacking functionality that has become common place for competing smartphones. The modest Snapdragon 212 SoC on the phone is likely to aid the battery life. That's a bold claim, though we'll reserve our judgment until we review the phone. Nokia 2 will be shipping with Android 7.1.1 Nougat along with the Google Assistant and HMD Global has promised to push Android Oreo update soon to the device. And the icing on the cake is the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for the phone in the coming weeks. The RAM of Nokia 2 smartphone is 1GB and the internal storage of the phone is 8GB. The phone has a Hybrid dual sim slot. While the India-specific launch date and pricing hasn't been announced yet, the phone will be available globally starting mid-November.

The Nokia 7 on the other hand, comes with flagship-like features at roughly half the price of Nokia 8.
