HMD Global, the Finland based phone maker who acquired the license to use the Nokia brand name, has recently confirmed the existence of the Nokia 2 smartphone. Priced at a very friendly price of around $115, the Nokia 2 comes with a 5 inch Gorilla Glass display screen, paired with an 8 megapixel main camera on the rear side and a 5 megapixel selfie shooter on the front side. The device is preloaded with Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat mobile operating system, and comes in color options of Pewter/Black, Copper/Black, and Pewter/White.
HMD Global is quick to position the new Nokia 2 as an affordable smartphone choice, especially for those always on the go. Indeed, the phone maker has no hesitation boasting the two day battery life offered by the handset’s 4,100 mAh battery. As explained by Juho Sarvikas, the chief product officer of HMD Global, the Nokia 2’s long lasting battery prowess was designed to be consistent with that of the legendary Nokia cell phones of old. With mobile device usage constantly on the rise across the globe, it only made sense to offer a smartphone that is not only accessible in terms of cost, but one that can last two days without needing to be charged.
The other specs are actually not bad for a smartphone with a price of just $115. Users get a central processing unit (CPU) powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon brand, and further aided by a gigabyte of random access memory (RAM) and 8 gigabytes of built in memory (expandable up to 128 gigabytes by way of a micro SD card slot).
Meanwhile, another old school cell phone brand, BlackBerry, is also grabbing some attention lately with its BlackBerry Motion offering, which is the phone maker’s first ever water resistant smartphone (with an IP67 rating). The handset was first introduced by TCL (who acquired the rights to use the BlackBerry brand name) a little less than a month ago, generating buzz over the fact that the model is a completely keyboard-less BlackBerry device.
When it debuted, the BlackBerry Motion was reported to be only shipping to select mobile markets in the Middle East (especially Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates), but apparently, the device is now coming to Canada, through Koodo and in a number of Telus, Bell and SaskTel outlets beginning on November 10th. The price is around $465.
