Nokia 2 leaked specs confirm it will be cheapest HMD smartphone

The unannounced Nokia 2 is supposed to be the cheapest Android smartphone to be launched by HMD. Although we're expecting the entry-level handset to be unveiled in early 2018, there's a chance that the Finnish company will launch the Nokia 2 by the end of the year.

We've been given a sneak peek at HMD's low-end smartphone a while ago courtesy to Evan Blass, but now we have a little bit more information about what's under Nokia 2's hood. An AnTuTu benchmark listing reveals some of the phone's specifications such as processor, memory, display, and software.

The Nokia 2 will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable storage. Even though the size of the display isn't mentioned, we do know it will feature HD (720p) resolution.

On the back, the Nokia 2 has an 8-megapixel primary camera, while on the front there should be a secondary 5-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. There's no info on the battery (previous reports mention a 4,000 mAh battery), but the smartphone will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box.

Judging by these leaked specs, we can't see the Nokia 2 cost more than $100 outright (the same price briefly listed by B&H). Obviously, customers should be able to pick this one up much cheaper at carriers.

Until they release Nokia 1, Ahhh come on, at this point, it wouldn’t be surprise if they release 1 to 10 and go on, They are utilizing every numeric number as they could.

This device is running with a 32 bit Cortex-A7. Why a 32 bit SoC in 2017?

1 GB ram on Android in 2017 is a joke.

What would you expect from a low-end budget handset? Besides, I've owned Android phones with 1GB RAM in 2017, but it hardly lagged, except under heavy tasks while killing big apps in the background. But no lag whatsoever in UI navigation.

Rather have a flip phone than this Android phone, specs are way too low. Oh well, I'm not the target market for it anyway. It will probably sell in decent enough quantities to be worth launching.

Needed it to have 16GB of ROM if I was to be able to even consider it. 8GB of ROM is simply insufficient these days, especially when Facebook and Messenger together, with all their app data, take up a full gigabyte of my ROM, and are no longer able to be thrown onto my SD card.
