Super-budget Nokia 2 revealed in a Geekbench listing

So, HMD Global is hard at work making Nokia great again and has so far revealed 4 phones with the brand — the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8. How exactly does that numbering work? We're not entirely sure, but one thing is consistent — the higher the numbering, the better class of device we get.

It seems that, with the upcoming Nokia 8 announcement, the company might be introducing an entry level phone for the budget-oriented. A mystery device has popped up on Geekbench, dubbed Unknown Heart. Seeing as HMD has used the Heart moniker as a working title for previous devices, this now leads to speculation that we might be looking at a potential Nokia 2 here.

So, what do we have? A quad-core, 1.27 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 with 1 GB of RAM — absolutely nothing to write home about. We assume that it would be an extremely affordable handset, considering that the Nokia 3 has a 1.3 GHz, quad-core MediaTek 6737, 2 GB of RAM, and costs about $160. Could a Nokia 2 cost $99?
