The Nokia-brand is making a comeback in the mobile phone market in 2017 thanks to Finnish startup HMD Global. So far the company has launched the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, Nokia 8, and the reincarnated version of 3310 in the market. But its latest Nokia 2 bridges the gap between smartphones and feature phones. Nokia 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 212 processor coupled with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and a microSD card slot. Performance of the Nokia 2 isn’t going to be spectacular, if you already own a smartphone. The feature that shines on the Nokia 2 is its battery. Nokia 2 is backed by a 4100mAh battery, which according to the company will last as long as two days on a single charge. Nokia 2 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat, and it’s the stock Android, meaning it has a pure Android feel to it. Nokia 2 sports a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, but is good for the 7000 rupees price point.
