It has not even been a month since we heard about the NOKIA 2, a low-end smartphone for those on a shoestring budget. The smartphone was first spotted when a Baidu user posted all the chipsets that HMD Global will utilise in this year’s NOKIA handsets. Before the reveal, it was believed that the NOKIA 3 would be the company’s cheapest compromise to get the revered brand out on the street. Today we have received our first glimpse at the handset that might bridge the gap between NOKIA’s feature-phone and their smartphone range.
The initial reveal was followed by a couple of hand-drawn images that depicted the basic contours of the NOKIA 2. These latest leaked images come courtesy of Federal Communications Commission which also lists the NOKIA 2 as the TA-1029. Currently, the only details known about the hardware of the handset are the fact that it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC and have a 4.7-inch or 5.0-inch HD (720 x1280) display. It is also rumoured that the smartphone will be certified for Bluetooth v.4.1. Apart from this according to other leaks, out of the box, the NOKIA 2 is likely going to be running Android v.7.1.1, Nougat albeit slightly modified.
