HMD Global, the home of New Nokia Android smartphones, has finally launched its most affordable smartphone Nokia 2 in Pakistan. Nokia phones were known for their excellent battery performance and Nokia 2 takes it to a whole level. As per Nokia claims, the Nokia 2 can fulfil your daily usage of chit chat and surfing for two days without any need to plug in charger.
Not to mention that the Android-powered Nokia smartphones, released by HMD Global, come with stock Android-like skins which aren’t too heavily loaded. This helps Nokia in releasing the next Android updates for these smartphones within no time. The Nokia 2 smartphone comes with Android Nougat and HMD has said that its update for Android Oreo will also be rolled out soon.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, says:
With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones. To make this a reality, every component of the Nokia 2- from the display to battery, chipset to system design – has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery to give fans a long-lasting phone they can rely on.
Nokia 2, powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, is especially designed for lengthy usage. It features a 5-inch LTPS HD display and comes with 8MP of rear and 5MP of front camera. HMD is heavily marketing the massive 4,100 mAh battery that comes with it saying that it easily lasts two days.
As far as the rest of the specifications are concerned, the Nokia 2 display, protected with Corning Gorilla Glass, is encapsulated in an aluminum frame. The LTE-enabled smartphone has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can further be expanded to 128GB with the help of a microSD card.
