HMD Global has been a busy bee. Ever since the Finnish company acquired the rights to sell Nokia-branded phones, they haven’t stopped. At MWC 2017, they showed three mid-rangers, plus a revamped Nokia 3310. Recently, they unveiled the Nokia 8 flagship, which we talked about here. Now, they’re focusing on the opposing range with Nokia 2 #mobilemagic
Nokia 2 is in the works. Evan Blass just leaked the design of the phone, exposing HMD Global’s plans for this fall. The phone is set to come in two colors, white and black. Pretty straightforward, the entry-level phone is definitely something you should buy if you’re particularly clumsy or want to gift it to one of your kids, as a way to reach him after school, without cringing at the thought that those hundreds of dollars could disappear during a spontaneous run.
Specs aren’t known yet, but you can infer them if you check out Nokia 3. This one is probably similar in equipment and features, with a slightly poorer processor and smaller screen (Nokia 3 had a 5-inch 720p screen). What’s confusing is the info from the FCC report regarding its battery cell. Supposedly, the phone will sport a huge 4,000 mAh! We’re not complaining, but is it realistic to believe that a budget phone – likely to cost less than $150 – is going with this kind of battery?
We’ll get out confirmation soon enough, though, as Nokia 2 is said to debut on October 5.
