HMD Global has been rolling out new Nokia devices with great regularity, but the best part seems to be their dedication to updating the phones on a reasonable time schedule. In fact, the Nokia 5 has been the first phone to get security patches for a few months now, often before Google releases them for their own devices. They’re hoping to capture a huge portion of the budget phone market too, as the upcoming Nokia 2 is slated to be budget-friendly.
Noted leaker Evan Blass has tweeted a series of press renders for the upcoming device, showing that it will be available in black and white.
Nokia 2 Specs – Rumored
- 4.7-inch to 5-inch 720p screen
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 or 212
- 1GB of RAM
- 8GB storage
- 8MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- 4,000mAh battery
Given the phone’s low specs it’s likely that it will be reasonably priced and will never see the light of day in the US. That’s unfortunate, but what I think is even more unfortunate is that a budget phone like the Nokia 2 has a bigger battery than some of the most recent flagships.
