Nokia is planning to launch their new smartphone Nokia 2 soon. Last week, we exclusively reported about the launch date of Nokia 2 globally, which hinted to an unknown date in November this year. Nokia’s current owner HMD Global is expected to launch the Nokia 2 mainly in Asian countries as the device comes under the entry-level budget smartphone category. We can also expect a debut of the smartphone in India, as the company has already launched all of their smartphones in India so far, including Nokia 8 flagship device. The Nokia 2 Price in India needs to filed by the company after the official launch, but with some circumstances, the device’s price list has been out.
Most of you are still doubted about the Nokia 2 Price in India, as well as in other countries. Before discussing the price details, let’s have a skim through the major specifications and features of the upcoming Nokia 2 smartphone.
Nokia 2 Price in India, Specs, Features
The entry-level Nokia 2 must be following a low-level hardware specification compared to company’s low-budget Nokia 3 launched along with the Nokia 5 a few months back. As far as we have concerned the leaks, rumors, and suggestions, the Nokia 2 will have only a smaller display with a diagonal size of 4.7 inches. The screen size itself disappoints the average smartphone buyers, as even most of the budget devices have at least 5-inch display size whereas the flagships are going beyond 6 or more. The 720p Liquid Crystal Display panel will pack around 310 or 312 PPI Pixel Density along with an extra protection of scratch and splash-proof Corning Gorilla Glass on top, which is quite typical considering HD displays. If you want to see something like a bezel-less design on the edges of the display, there is still no room for hope as the leaked images revealed a design with slightly thicker bezels.
Discussion on the powerhouse of the device in this article about Nokia 2 Price in India, the talk gets stuck at the Qualcomm’s low-power MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 System-on-Chipset (SoC). The processor is capable of clocking the device up to 1.3GHz. The 32-bit Chipset has four cores of Cortex A7, which even supports 4G LTE bands using the Semiconductor giant’s X5 Cat.4 modem. According to some other sources (less reliable), the Nokia 2 will house a Snapdragon 212 SoC along with 2GB of RAM. Theoretically, the processor will not be able to thrive-drive any smartphone not at least a moderate level of performance among entry-level devices.
Surprisingly, some of the latest leaks have hinted us with a humongous battery on the Nokia 2. A listing spotted recently on the United States FCC (Federal Communications Commission), the International smartphone and communications certifications clearance ally, have exposed the battery size of the Nokia 2 – 4,000mAh. The battery size on the Nokia 2 was said to be around 2,000 or 2,500 milliAmpere Hour, which would compensate among with its rivals. But the leak has just amazed us, that the Nokia is bringing its entry-level smartphone with the largest battery the Nokia or HMD Global ever had in their smartphones. This much larger battery on the lowest end smartphone must change the game of battery backup time in budget smartphones. We do expect that the Nokia 2 would be able to survive more than 24 hours of continuous juicing down the battery, possibly for days – as we used to use the older Nokia feature phones for around a week in a single charging up; even if the Nokia 2 would not cop with the same long duration. As per the information provided on the Qualcomm’s official website listing, the Snapdragon 210 Chipset supports QuickCharge 2.0 with high wattage and high current amount of electricity intake to the smartphone, which boosts up the battery charge faster than the typical 1.0 Ampere charging.
Concerning storage consistency, the Nokia 2 would not be that much awe-inspiring. As stated by the recent rumors, the Nokia 2 will have only 1 gigabyte of Primary Memory onboard, along with 8GB of internal storage. It is an inevitable fact that the Operating System would swallow almost the half of the internal storage, and the rest three or four gigs would not be enough to meet secondary storage needs. Although, the smartphone has a dedicated SD Card slot, which can hold a memory card up to 32GB.
Hope you have understood almost every single hardware detail of the Nokia 2 smartphone, but one of the major critical hardware phases is missing, right? Yes. The Camera department of the Nokia 2 smartphone is lef6t to be discussed. Let us talk about the camera features of the Nokia 2. Nokia seems worked their best to bring the maximum level of camera sensor supported by the processor resting under the hood of this entry-level cell device by HMD Global. The 8 Megapixel rear-facing primary camera sensor is capable of shooting videos with 720p HD clarity at 30 frames-per-second. A single LED flashlight is attached in rear, alongside the imaging sensor. Having just 8MP resolution does not mean the device may lack common features; Nokia assures the rear camera can autofocus on small objects and also supports touch focus. Also, it supports Geo-tagging, which is used to seal a silhouette watermark on captured images with the location where the image was taken. Coming to the front-facing selfie snapper, another 5 MP sensor does the selfie works, which has only a single fixed focus, unlike the major camera module. Many of the leaks hint to a bigger 8MP selfie camera, yet the 5MP sounds more believable. As the device is being delegated into the budget lineup of the Finnish company, the camera performance will not be putting out some pleasant experiences. Both of the front and rear facing camera would sport a face detection feature.
On the connectivity side, the budget Nokia 2 has almost every cellular network bands supporting – 2G/GPRS/EDGE, 3G/HSPA/HSPA+ and 4G/LTE/VoLTE in non-carrier versions. For the additional internet connectivity, the Wi-Fi antenna is provided onboard with support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and personal Wi-Fi hotspot. The smartphone has Bluetooth 4.0 module embedded with A2DP for Bluetooth Wireless Audio streaming. Nokia expected to retain the standard FM Radio driver on the smartphone, which is being vanished from newly launching devices. For the wired comms, the ports provided will be a regular micro USB 2.0 on the bottom edge, coupled with a conventional 3.5mm headphone jack. The Location settings can be set through the A-GPS sensor and the Russia’s GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System). Nokia will only attach an Accelerometer sensor with the device, and the rest of the common motion or gesture sensors will be lacking in this device.
Even while the company is planning to launch the device y mid-November or so, the Nokia 2’s recent leaked information says that it will only run Android 7.1.1 Nougat Operating System, instead of Android Oreo which is already live among the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
Here are some more thoughts about the forthcoming Nokia 2 smartphone. The smartphone will have a non-removable case, battery as well. As we had looked onto the leaked images, the smartphone will likely to carry unibody design, not sure made out of plastic or metal. The camera module on the rear panel looks the same as the newly launched devices under the supervision of HMD Global, mounted vertically with the flashlight. The speaker grille is on the rear bottom portion, showing off no antenna lines. On the front, there goes the Camera on the top left corner along with a proximity sensor. The navigational buttons made virtual, with the bar on the screen. The smartphone will be launched in two-color variants all over the global countries – Black and White.
The allegedly exposed model numbers, TA-1023, TA-1035, TA-1007 and TA-1029 are the four variants of the smartphone expected to be unveiled eventually.

Nokia Corporation is a Finnish Telecommunications equipment manufacturer incorporated in the 19th century, worked with the electronic components. Later by the end of 20th century, the company had entered into the cellphone manufacturing when a cellular phone was so expensive to afford. The company had introduced many revolutions in the mobile phone industry. With the partnership with Symbian, Carl Zeiss, and Microsoft, the company has thrived a lot. But after the acquisition by Microsoft, the Nokia corporation went down to the ground-touching level from the glorious top-notch of the mobile industry, as they could not cope up with the flood of Android smartphones. Last year, a startup from Finland itself – HMD Global- had acquired the smartphone division of Nokia and had launched the Nokia 6 mid-ranger, alongside a revamped nostalgic Nokia 3310.
