Nokia is soon going to launch the new entry-level Android-powered smartphone Nokia 2 in the U.S. as the device is now up for pre-orders in the U.S. via the e-retailer B&Hphotovideo. It is listed with a $99 pre-order price on the B&H website. The pre-order listing indicates that HMD Global is soon going to launch this device in the US at an affordable price.
The Nokia 2 is an entry-level smartphone, thus will not have flagship-level specifications and it will be powered by the entry-level Snapdragon 212 processor. The device has already got FCC approval with model number TA-1029 but the variant listed on B&H’s website comes with model number TA-1035.

The B&H’s listing of the Nokia 2 doesn’t have any details about its specifications and there are no images of the device available in the listing. The Nokia 2, according to the rumours, will have a 4.5-inch HD display with a 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution of 326 pixels per inch. It will have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage capacity if believe the rumours.
We can expect a battery with around 2400mAh size or it might be bigger than expected. the Nokia 2 will have a 5-megapixel or an 8-megapixel rear camera with a 720p HD video recording feature. It will support 4G LTE, 3G, Bluetooth, Wifi, and other standard connectivity options and will have dual SIM support as well.
