According to past reports, Nokia 2 is said to be the company’s cheapest smartphone yet. Now, the latest listing on AnTuTu is in line with that. If the listing is to be believed, the Nokia 2 will be equipped with modest hardware, including Snapdragon 212 SoC with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Given the brand name is associated with catering to all kinds of price categories, this is expected to be a welcome decision.

Despite it being an entry-level smartphone, the Nokia 2 will run the newer Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and flaunt a HD (720x1280p pixels) display. For optics, it is likely to bundle an 8-megapixel camera at the back along with a 5-megapixel front camera. ALSO READ: HMD Global sends invite for October 31; likely to launch Nokia 7 in India
Earlier last week, the smartphone was briefly listed on US retailer B&H website, along with details about its specifications. Based on the listing, Nokia 2 will be a dual-SIM model with a price tag of just $99 (approximately Rs 6,500). There will be two color choices according to the retailer’s listing – black and white.
Nokia 2 previously also showed up in the Bluetooth SIG database. While the AnTuTu listing does not clearly specify, past rumors indicate the phone will be fueled by a massive 4,000mAh battery. For a $99 smartphone, this battery capacity seems impressive.
As a report on GSMArena puts, HMD Global is hosting an event on October 31 in India, where it might possibly launch a new Nokia phone. Again, as there is no official word on which phone the company would be launching on that day, speculations side with the Nokia 7. ALSO READ: Nokia 2 leaked renders hint at a Nokia 3-like design
