The Nokia 2 brings a massive battery to the tail end of the budget market
Nokia, since the rebranding by HMD Global, has been on something akin to a winning streak, with the brand seeking to cater for the various sections of the market. While the upcoming Nokia 9 may be in the spotlight at the moment—and rightfully so, it's a flagship after all—HMD Global are also getting ready for something on the more subdued side of things. The Nokia 2 may not come with all the trappings of the Nokia 9 but it makes no attempts at being an eye-catcher.
Humble in all ramifications, the Nokia 2 features a sub 5-inch display, with a HD resolution. It's also powered by the bottom-of-the-barrrel Snapdragon 212, Qualcomm's entry-level SoC from way back 2015. While some would consider this SoC a baffling choice by the OEM, it must be understood that the Nokia 2 isn't at all expected to be a daily driver; it's probably set up to be an easy-going multimedia and connectivity device. It also helps that Snapdragon chips are easier to work with in terms of software updates than cheaper alternatives like MediaTek's offerings (The Nokia 3 ships with a MediaTek SoC, though, so that may be a moot point).
The most interesting part of the Nokia 2 is, indubitably, its battery. The budget device features a whopping 4000 mAh battery, which is quite larger than what we've seen on every other Nokia device till date.
