Nokia 2 entry level Android phone is apparently real


In 2016 the compatible Nexus phone got the first as an OTA update.

HMD, the company responsible for Nokia-branded smartphones, has promised to provide regular software updates to its new Android handsets.

Nokia licence holder HMD Global is close to launching a new entry-level smartphone, which is expected to be called the Nokia 2, SlashGear reported. It may be coming with the Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity which is also leaked previously.

While Google has revealed some details about the new platform, much remains a mystery, including the launch date. With well over 200 million Nokia 105s sold to date around the world, this award winning handset now features an all new sculpted design, outstanding battery life, and improved usability thanks to its larger screen size and new tactile island keymat. The smartphone will be launched by HMD Global on 16 August at an event in London. It also is the reason the company has chosen the 8 monikers. The phone's actual release will likely happen at a later date a few weeks later, plenty of time to get things ready on the software front. And if the following rumor pans out, the Nokia 8 might pull off a trick that only Google's phones can deliver.

As it can be seen from the images above, there's a menu icon on the top left corner which opens the camera setup options. The Nokia 3 launch is still on schedule for July 12, however. The device is expected to feature 16GB inbuilt storage with expandable support. As for the camera, there is no information with regards to the front and rear sensors of the Nokia 2. The same report adds weight to earlier talk of a 5.3in display, Snapdragon 835 processor and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It has appeared yet again on Geekbench with key specs.

What is said to be the Nokia 2 has recently passed the FCC certification giving away its detailed spec-sheet along with a couple of images of the device. Three variants of the device have been sighted so far - the TA-1004, TA-1012, and TA-1052 - with each one of them boasting different amounts of RAM.

Nokia 8 Price will be 600 Euros. The device will be powered by latest SD 835 SoC and will also come with Dual Camera setup.

True to HMD's word, the Nokia 6 has now arrived in the US via Amazon.
