What a year we’ve had with Nokia. Since the beginning of the year the HMD guys introduced us to Nokia 6, the first mobile phone after their return to Android, they haven’t stopped the presentations. To keep up with the pace, they have introduced a new mobile phone, the Nokia 2, with which they want to enter the entry range from top to bottom.
There were no misguided rumours going around about a possible new low-end Nokia mobile phone, and that is that today we have seen what it’s like, its specifications and its price. You want to know all his details? Below we tell you all about the Nokia 2.
Nokia 2: Specifications
The new HMD mobile phone is no boast of power, design or virtually no other features. However, its tight features, coupled with a fairly reasonable price can make you win your entire range. Let’s see what’s inside the Nokia 2.
The rear of this device is made entirely of polycarbonate, just like other models such as Nokia 3 or Nokia 5. However, the side panels are made of 6000 series aluminium, giving it a more robust touch.
At the front we found just what we expected: a sparing design, without frills. The frames, both lateral, upper and lower, are not exactly restrained, but we cannot wait much longer for the price at which it is found.
As for the screen, we found a 5-inch LTPS panel. The resolution, in this case, will be HD, which leaves a screen density of 293 pixels per inch. As we said before, without too many boasts.
Hardware and software: decent, but insufficient
The Snapdragon 212 is in the gut of the Nokia 2. Yes, Nokia has turned to the less powerful processor of Qualcomm’s options. It also has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, which we can (and should) expand with a microSD of up to 128 GB.
There is no doubt, these specifications remind us of terminals from several years ago. While these very limited characteristics can be explained by their low price, when faced with its direct competition, such as the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is very, very far behind.
The same happens in the photographic section, and it is nothing less than an 8 megapixel camera. We can’t expect to take too many good pictures with the main camera and perhaps not with the front camera either.
This is 5 megapixels and lacks wide-angle. Nokia has decided to cut back on all aspects and the photographer is the one who gets the worst of it, given what he’s seen. We will have to wait until we have it in hand to check the quality of your results. However, the photo section of what’s new on Nokia doesn’t look good.
Where we can praise Nokia is in the autonomy of its new mobile phone, and we have 4100 mAh, more than enough to give us two days of uninterrupted use, a feature valued by users of this range.
Another area in which we can be satisfied is that of software. The Nokia 2 features Android 7.1 Nougat with no customization layer and Android Oreo’s upgrade coming soon. It is a good thing that Nokia keeps the appearance of Stock rather than hurting (even more) the experience with this handset.
Price and availability of Nokia 2
Looking at its characteristics we couldn’t expect too high a price. In this regard, HMD complies. The Nokia 2 will be available for only 99 euros in the last weeks of November. In short, this Nokia 2 comes to swell the entry range. With very limited specifications and a price adjusted to them, we will see if Nokia can conquer this range with its new handset. How about the new Nokia 2?
