Yesterday, Nokia 2 was spotted passing the FCC certification detailing its massive 4000mAh battery. As the time of writing, there isn’t any information regarding the purported launch of the next wave of handsets from HMD, but the recurring leaks of Nokia 2 hints the company’s impending launch.

Renowned leakster Evan Blass tweeted today a press renders of what he claims to be the Nokia 2. As you remember, Blass was the first and the only person to leak the Nokia 8 press render prior to HMD Global’s London launch last month.
Nokia 2 is an ultra budget device with a descent low-tier specs incased on a premium looking polycarbonate body just like the Nokia 3. It will allegedly come with either 5.0″ or 4.77″ 720p HD display, 1GB of RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC on board. Like the suspected Nokia 9, which appeared on GFXBench last day, the Nokia 2 might be unveiled with either Android 7.1.1 Nougat or Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
What makes it different from the Nokia 3 though (aside from specs) is the use of onscreen navigation buttons. This is first from the range of Android handsets released by HMD this year. But while we prefer to have it on devices with larger display, we’re not truly glad to have that on smaller handsets such as the Nokia 2.
As mentioned, Blass’s tweet didn’t provide any information regarding the official specs of Nokia 2 nor the date of launch. But with the handset’s appearance on the FCC database yesterday, we know we’re close to it.
