The Nokia 2 has now been officially made available for purchase in the United States mobile market by way of retail partners such as Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H. The smartphone comes with a price of a hundred bucks, and offers specifications such as a 5 inch LCD HD display screen (Corning Gorilla Glass 3, with a resolution of 1,280 by 720 pixels), an 8 megapixel rear side camera (with LED flash), a 5 megapixel front side selfie shooter, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 chip set (four core, 1.3 GigaHertz), 1 gigabyte of random access memory (RAM), 8 gigabytes of built in storage (expandable up to 128 gigabytes via a micro SD card slot), an integrated 4,100 mAh battery, and Google’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat mobiler operating system.
At a price of $100, the Nokia 2 is no doubt an ideal simple smartphone geared to first time users (like kids or teenagers) or for those too old to fancy today’s super powered devices. Additionally, the Nokia 2 could also serve as an affordable back up for one’s high end handset. For HMD Global, however, it did not hesitate to highlight the two day battery life offered by the Nokia 2. According to Juho Sarvikas, the chief product officer of HMD, the long lasting battery of the Nokia 2 was specifically designed to be consistent with that of the legendary Nokia cell phones of the 1990s and early 2000s. With mobile usage continuing to increase among consumers, a smartphone that does not need to be recharged for a couple of a days does seem quite handy.
As for those who want the best of what HMD Global can offer, they might want to go for the current flagship offering, the Nokia 8. Obviously, with high end specs, the Nokia 8’s $700 price is pretty high compared to the Nokia 2’s $100 price, but since it is a flagship, the cost should compete well with other high profile smartphone releases out there.
