Before the end of October, Nokia and HMD Global officially announced the Nokia 2. A mid-November launch date was expected for the new device, but that window came and went without a release. It looks like Nokia and HMD were able to get the Nokia 2 out in the U.S. before the end of the month, though.
Beginning today, the Nokia 2 will be available from Amazon and Best Buy. The device is now available from Best Buy, but it’s not currently in stock at Amazon. That should change soon enough.
As a refresher, the Nokia 2′s spec list includes a 5-inch 720p HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage. It also has a microSD card slot that supports cards up to 128GB if you need more storage. There’s an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the other side, too.
The Nokia 2 is running Android Nougat out of the box, but HMD says that it will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the future. The Nokia 2 also features a 3.5mm headphone jack. The primary selling point here, though, is the 4100mAh battery.
If you’re in the market for a smartphone without a huge price tag, the Nokia 2 might fill in the blank
