Unannounced Nokia 2 to pack a large 4,000 mAh battery

Unannounced Nokia 2 to pack a large 4,000 mAh battery

After releasing the Nokia 8 flagship, HMD Global is now getting ready to announce a significantly less pretentious smartphone. Apparently called Nokia 2, the upcoming device was first seen last month in some photos revealed by the FCC (the US Federal Communications Commission). Now, we can share a new, and pretty important detail about the handset.



 



According to documents shared by the FCC, the Nokia 2 packs a 4,000 mAh battery - the largest we've seen inside a Nokia-branded Android phone thus far. Such a generous battery might be able to last 2 days on a single charge, especially since the rest of the handset's features shouldn't be too power-hungry, possibly including a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor. Just like the other four Nokia smartphones introduced this year, the Nokia 2 will run near stock Android Nougat.    



 



For now, there is no word on when the Nokia 2 is expected to be announced, and neither on where and for how much it will be sold. In any case, the smartphone will almost certainly cost less than the slightly superior Nokia 3 (sold for about $160 unlocked).




To us, a new, cheap (and hopefully reliable) Nokia smartphone with a long-lasting battery sounds like a good idea. What do you think?

if this is true, i wonder what the intention behind including that a big a battery would be since all their other more power hungry phones have significantly smaller batteries withing context

Snapdragon 212? Eek! The 32-Bit Cortex-A7s ought to be retired now, just like A9s and A15s. When Qualcomm is going to upgrade it's 2xx Series with 64-Bit A35s which are out for almost an year now? Considering the extremely laggy performance of it's elder brethren, The Nokia 5 with stronger A53s, I'm sure this phone will lag like a Dual-Core Cortex-A5 Sammy mobile 'attempting' to run the Touchwiz based on jelly Bean! Kinda like the Samsung Star Series! HORRIBLE THAN HORRIBLE, in other words. This phone is going to be an absolute GARBAGE. So to anyone listening in, don't waste your cash! G'Day!

"extremely laggy performance of the Nokia 5" it's clear to me you haven't touched a nokia 5 in your life nor watched any reviews on it nor seen anything related to it at all

4000mAh and Snapdragon 212. Interesting combination. Looking forward to learning more.

With a 4000mAh battery and Snapdragon 212 the battery life should be fantastic. The end user just has to be realistic about their computing power expectations.

Yeah seriously. It sounds like it would be a great phone for calls and general communication.

And with the stock implementation of Android that Nokia uses, general OS navigation should be quick enough.

Battery life is going to be insane with a 4,000 mAh battery and SD 212 with that screen resolution. Probably gearing up to sell this in areas of the world where one must unfortunately go without electricity for long periods of time. I just wish they would have packed this battery into their upper range handsets.

The Nokia 2 will be technically less powerful than the 3, it will be a very low budget device.
