A large 4,100mAh battery should provide outstanding battery life, given the modest chipset and screen. HMD officially quotes 2-day battery life if you use the phone for 5 hours per day.
In terms of software, the device will come with Android Nougat 7.1.1 which is a first for a phone in this segment. Nokia has kept the interface pretty close to stock version which will keep it easy on the processor.
Moreover, Nokia is promising to keep the Nokia 2 ‘pure secure and up to date’, making it future-proof. This means that the Nokia 2 will receive the update for Android Oreo in due time.
RAM is 1GB, while internal memory is 8GB with a microSD card slot for expansion. The phone runs Android Nougat out of the box, with Oreo update confirmed to be coming. It comes in three color options: copper, black, and white.
Nokia 2 also features Google Assistant, something which the company says makes the device first of its kind in the entry-level segment.
HMD said the Nokia 2 will launch in mid-November and it has been priced at 99 euros for global markets, which is a little over Rs 7,000.
It will be available in markets from mid-November. Although the price for Indian markets has not been disclosed yet, the Nokia 2 might be priced in the vicinity of Rs 6,000 to Rs 6,500.
