Nokia 2 is the latest budget smartphone from Nokia. If you are a fan of Nokia trending Android devices but can’t afford the Nokia 8. Then the newly announced Nokia 2 is the best smartphone for you. According to the tech giant, Nokia 2 is the first entry-level device with the Google Assistant feature on deck. Just like the Pixel Book, the Nokia 2 also comes with an unlimited photo and video storage in Google Photos.
The Nokia 2 looks like other Nokia Android devices, it brings together crafted aluminium frame, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and a sculpted polycarbonate back. Offering both durability and class with a sleek, modern design. At the upper back, the camera and flash are placed horizontally at the back of the phone, while the Nokia logo is situated at the middle.
The Nokia 2 boasts a bright and responsive 5.0-inch LTPS LCD display screen, which offers impressive contrast and clarity thanks to its 720 x 1280 pixels and 294 ppi density.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
Although it houses one of the most trusted, power-efficient and dependable chipsets available. The Qualcomm MSM8909v2 Snapdragon 212 chipset with speed clocked at Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7. The 1GB of RAM on the smartphone is quite disappointing, I’m guessing that’s why its less than $100. For gamers, the Nokia 2 has Adreno 304 gaming processing unit.
For storing videos and files, there’s 8GB of internal storage which can be upgradeable to 128GB. It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system which can be upgraded to 8.0 Oreo.
