HMD Global has launched three budget-oriented devices and a flagship smartphone, all under Nokia’s brand name. The smartphones have received mixed reactions with the price-to-performance ratio questioned the most, at least about the budget devices. It looks like a new Nokia 2 will be added to the repertoire of budget Android devices, come October 5th.
Earlier reports suggested that the Nokia 2 will have a 4000 mAh battery, the biggest one yet inside a Nokia Android smartphone. A famous tipster on Twitter shared images of the Nokia 2 sporting a similar design language as the previous devices with thick bezels, but no home button below the screen. This means that the phone will miss out on a fingerprint sensor. The Nokia 2 appears to be running stock Android as well, and the version could be Oreo, as per the recently spotted US FCC documents. Other leaks suggest that the Nokia 2 is expected have a 5-inch 1280 x720 px display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset with 1GB of RAM.
Another interesting observation here is the date on the leaked images. The home screen on both images shows “October 5th” as the date which might suggest that the Nokia 2 could launch on that date. However, all of this is speculation and should be taken with a pinch of skepticism.
