Nokia 2 could be launched as early as November in some countries

The Nokia 2 is HMD's latest rumored smartphone, one of the cheapest the Finnish company plans to launch this year. There may be another device that will be released alongside the Nokia 2, but for the moment we're only convinced by the existence of the entry-level handset.

Pictures of the Nokia 2 leaked less than two weeks ago, but no details about the release date emerged yet. Even though the date on phone's home screen indicates HMD might unveil the Nokia 2 on October 5, it's not certain that will happen.

A new piece of the puzzle might have been uncovered over the weekend as a screenshot showing a conversation between a fan and Nokia Myanmar offers more information about the Nokia 2's launch.

According to the screenshot, Nokia Myanmar plans to launch the Nokia 2 sometime in November, but that doesn't mean the smartphone won't be released in other countries slightly earlier.

File this under rumors since we can't vouch for the legitimacy of the screenshot, although the information does come in line with the latest rumors regarding the Nokia 2.

Speaking of Nokia 2, the budget-friendly smartphone is said to pack a generous 4,000 mAh battery, a 5-inch HD (720p) display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, and just 1GB RAM. Android Nougat is likely to be on board, and that's just about everything we have on the device for now.

Ah! Just a Gig of RAM, eh? This phone will probably come with 'Android Go' with 'Lite' apps everywhere! Would love to see it in action as Google claims a TON of software optimization with Oreo! Otherwise, this phone will be next to useless considering the mediocre performance of The Nokia 3. Lets see... G'Day!

Why should it come with Android Go because of 1GB RAM? There are many phones which run Android Lollipop and onwards with 1GB RAM just fine. Heck, the 2012 flagship phones had 1GB RAM and they managed to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, no?

Android One should do fine.

Not as useless as your opinion. This isn't a phone for high-end users. You would know that if you weren't trying to attack Nokia. Let's see... G'Day!

It does not make that much difference. It only exists to compete with Moto C Plus.
