HMD’s latest budget smartphone features a 5.7 inch display with a waterdrop-style camera notch, a 3,000 mAh battery, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, up to 3GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage.
While the Nokia 2.2 doesn’t have the most impressive specs, it does have a few key selling points.
First, it’s an Android One device, which means that you should get at least two years of major OS updates, and three years of security updates. And second, it’s cheap: prices should start at about $100 when the phone goes on sale in India next week. It’ll be available in Europe soon for a few dollars more.
Update 7/17/2019: The Nokia 2.2 is now available in the US for $139.
HMD will sell a model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage in India for about $100, while a 3GB/32GB model is priced closer to $115.
The company says the global average selling price will be €99, or about $110.
