Nokia 2.2 is the newest budget phone in the US
The Nokia 2.2 has just landed in the United States as an unlocked phone and you can get it on Amazon and Best Buy starting today for the low price of just $140. The Nokia 2.2 will work on GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as MetroPCS, Cricket, and Mint.

The Nokia 2.2 has the benefit of being an Android One phone, meaning that it will get timely Android software updates, a rarity among budget models. In terms of specs, you get a 5.7" LCD display with an HD resolution, a teardrop notch (but also a rather big chin), a dedicated Google Assistant button, a single rear camera and, interestingly, it does not have a fingerprint scanner, relying on 2D face recognition instead.

Nokia provides this useful specs comparison between its current models and you can find the Nokia 2.2 in the last spot.

While overall this looks like a decent device for the price, the MediaTek Helio A22 chip that powers the phone worries us a bit as this is a rather weak chip and we are not certain whether it will do a perfect job in daily tasks. Apart from that, you get 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage, not bad for a phone in this price range. The battery size is 3,000mAh.

We should also mention that the phone made its international debut a bit earlier, in June.
