HMD Global says that the Nokia 2, while still maintaining its affordable price tag, doesn't cut corners on important aspects like display, build quality and camera performance, unlike other budget smartphones. Earlier the device makes its appearance on some platforms, and now it is official.
HMD Global took the revival of Nokia brand quite seriously. "If you look at who we actually talk to when we designed this proposition, it was the younger user". According to Seiche, the new Nokia, which began its journey some 11 months ago and has operations in 80 countries, has seen Indian emerge as one of its three largest markets worldwide. It is expected to be available in India from around mid November. Xiaomi's Redmi 4A comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 425, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage and a 3,120 mAh battery, and is available at just Rs 6,999. This virtual assistant from Google allows users to ask multiple questions in one go.
The 6000 series aluminium frame is rarely felt between the Gorilla Glass and polycarbonate back, but it adds the necessary weight. However, the company has promised Android 8.0 Oreo update for the device. The spec sheet reminds me of Samsung's Galaxy S2 - secretly one of my most-liked phones ever.
In spite of all these features, this smartphone will face great competition with Xiomi and Moto entry-level smartphones.
Display: The device has 5-inch HD screen which comes with a contrast ratio of 13000:1.
Thus far, the return of Nokia has given us quite a few different handsets. The company's global CEO Rajeev Suri attended the event. You can add another 128 GB via a microSD card slot. Currently, the company is holding on fourth position in the feature phone market. To launch a smartphone in 2017 with such limited internal storage is a sin.
We're about to find out as the Xiaomi-Nokia budget wars commence. HMD Global claims the smartphone to feature a 4100mAh battery, which can run for 2 days. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, WI-FI and GPS.
