Evleaks: This is #Nokia 2

The always trusty source of news from the mobile phone industry, Evleaks, has posted a photo of the alleged Nokia 2. Now, we finally have a confirmation that HMD is really planning an even cheaper smartphone than the Nokia 3. We still don’t know the exact specs, but Nokia 2 might come with a 4.5 inch 720p screen, Snapdragon 212, 8 GB of internal memory and 1 GB of RAM. It should run Android 7.1.1 and maybe Android 8 or Android Go (lightweight Android 8) out of the box.

Yesterday we found out that this phone could have a rather large, 4000 mAh battery. It was written so in FCC files about Nokia 2’s variants, but it may be a typo from FCC’s side or HMD really decided to make this phone a battery champ.

The phone design is simple, consistent with the Nokia 3 design, with polycarbonate back. It kind of reminds me of some cheaper Lumia devices since it has that loudspeaker opening at the back. Nokia 2 lost the capacitive control buttons, probably to keep the price down, and put the on screen controls. It will also come with a new (rounded) Google search widget that HMD made especially for its devices. HMD’s CPO Juho Sarvikas recently asked on Twitter should HMD use rectangular (like on the 3, 5 or 6) or rounded (like on the pictures above) Google Search widget in the future. This could also indicate that the 2 will really come with Android 8/Go.

We could expect the device to be announced on October the 5th, because that’s the date printed on Evleaks’ render. Of course, the phone could get delayed and be launched later.

What do you think about the alleged Nokia 2? Tell us down below. 🙂

    It looks good, has very good specs for me (4000 mAh battery is absolutely fantastic) and is cheap. I’ll buy it definitely when it comes out.

  • Muerte

    For a phone less than 100 € I think this looks good 🙂 The key selling point may well be the “oversized” battery!

    i like it as budget phone and nokia fun, i like virtual navigatiot bar on display, body is very nice, metal frame, according older leaks i think this phone have 4.7 or 5 inch display not 4.5, for me 4.5 screen is good becouse i like small phones

  • Stinger

    I wonder if it will come in vibrant, eye-catching colours. It would be great if the back was changeable.

    I want this for my dad

    Hello Lumia 620

    • Well done, I knew something was also there. Completely forgot abot that cutie.

  • Interesting part is the date that Nokia 2 will be presented to the world. This used to be a Google Pixel event, and we know it is now set for Oct. 4. So, HMD will show the cheapest Pixel just day after or together with new Google phones day earlier?

      Moving people that are used to feature phones with long standby/talk
      times to a smart phone with similar capability (if that is the reason
      for the larger battery) is a good idea.

      I’m more convinced that this will be an Android Go phone.

      • Previous leaks suggested Android 7.1.1 but that 1 GB of RAM moves toward Android O
