A few weeks ago, the FCC certification process revealed photos that allegedly show a Nokia 2, HMD’s upcoming super affordable smartphone. The phone is run under code names TA-1007, TA-1023, TA-1029 and TA-1035. From the previous leaks we learned the possible specs of the device could come with 4.5-inch 720p display, 8MP back + 5MP front camera, 8GB of internal storage, Snapdragon 212 followed by 1GB RAM and Android 7.1.1.
One thing that was unknown was the battery. Now Roland Quandt from the WinFuture.de found out from the FCC documents that the supposed Nokia 2, or the device(s) with code names mentioned above, should have a 4000 mAh battery.
Just had another look at the FCC docs for the supposed "Nokia 2" from HMD Global (TA-1029 in this case) – they list a 4000mAh (!!!) battery.
Well, this is a surprise, but could be true since we know that every Nokia phone made by the HMD carries a specific message or meaning with it. For example, Nokia 3 is great value for the money, the Nokia 5 is beautifully designed, Nokia 6 durable and Nokia 8 productive. Maybe Nokia 2 will be a long-lasting device?
Maybe there is another twist in the whole story. Since the 4000 mAh battery is a rarity today in Nokia 2’s price category (below Nokia 3 which retails at €139), maybe HMD won’t be putting it inside of an ultra-cheap phone but rather top model, like the alleged 9. But then again, the same papers show the charger to be the standard one, shipped with Nokia 3, 5 and 6 (AC 100-240V, 50-60Hz, 300mA). Maybe on low end smartphone there is much space to fit in the larger capacity battery. Anyway, 4000 mAh is going to be nice to have since it is quite rare to have a phone that can last for two full days on one charge.
