After the sudden demise of the world renowned mobile manufacturer from the windows phone market, the brand Nokia came back under the ownership of HMD Global last year. After years of rumours leaks and renders last year finally Nokia launched 3 smartphones based on the latest version of Android i.e. Android Nougat , namely the Nokia 6,5,3 , all of them are for budget to midrange smartphone buyers and has also declared guaranteed monthly security patch updates for all the 3 devices.
It seems that Nokia hasn't done up with their budget smartphone plans and some reports claims that they are working on an ultra budget smartphone named Nokia 2, claimed to be focussed on the 1st time smartphone buyers around the world.
A picture of the unreleased Nokia 2 came up today on FCC but got removed due on request from HMD Global, suggesting the same design like its predecessors. The Nokia 2 is said to come powered by a Snapdragon 212, which is a Quad core processor clocked at 1.3GHz based on the old 32-bit 28nm ARM Cortex A-7 architecture. It is really disappointing to see such a step from taken by Nokia i.e. using a 2-year old processor in 2017 where technology is advancing by leaps and bounds. The graphics will be handled by Adreno 304 GPU. The device is coupled with a 1GB of RAM which looks hilarious in a world where even 2GB fails to keep up the users demand. Talking about the screen, it is rumored to come with a 4.7-5 inch HD 720p display which seems quite good for an ultra budget device and will also help the battery life although no leaks have come out about the battery capacity of the device yet.
In terms of camera the device may sport a 5MP or an 8MP camera with video recording capabilities till 720p HD videos as it is capped by the processor . The device will support 4G LTE and WIFI Standards upto 802.11a/b/g. Talking about the price it is expected to carry a sub-$120 price tag. There is no confirmed date of release of the device.
