Even though they’re still not able to deal with the big players in the game, HMD and Nokia are doing a pretty good job with their new smartphones, as they are selling very well all over the world. If until now they focused on mid-range and flagship devices, it’s time to talk a bit about the cheapest entry in their portfolio, the Nokia 2.
The handset should make its debut in early 2018, with a pocket-friendly price tag, but, according to some rumors, there’s a chance for the Finnish company to introduce it by the end of the year.
We have the first benchmark result!
According to Phone Arena, Evan Blass already revealed some information about the upcoming handset. Specifically, he posted a leaked AnTuTu benchmark which shos that the phone will come with Android 7.1.1 on board, despite being an entry-level model.
Otherwise, the Nokia 2 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chip, aided by 1 GB of RAM and featuring just 8GB of expandable storage, using a microSD card slot.
The size of the display remains a mystery, but we do know that it will have an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Probably the won’t go above 5.0″ with the size.
Huge battery, low price
On the back, the upcoming Nokia 2 will have an 8MP camera, while the front-facing snapper should rely on a 5MP sensor. We don’t have any information about the size of the battery either, even though some rumors were pointing to a 4000mAh unit, which should be more than enough for a full day.
Finally, considering the specs, the Nokia 2 shouldn’t cost more than $100, in the SIM free version. Of course, if you prefer to get it with a contract, the phone will be available for a way lower price.
