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.

Here’s a run-down of the rest of the phone’s key features:

  • 5.71 inch, 1520 x 720 pixel IPS LCD display
  • MediaTek Helio A22 processor
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • 13MP rear camera with LED flash + 5MP front camera
  • Face Unlock support
  • Micro USB port
  • Headphone jack
  • MicroSD card reader

The phone has a polycarbonate body and features volume and power buttons on the right side, and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left.

  1. Wow, an extra GB of RAM and an extra 16 GB of storage for $15! You will never see that deal from Apple! Too bad about the MediaTek processor. Still, it would make an awesome Android equivalent to an iPod for media consumption.
