Just days ahead of its speculated launch, the Nokia 2 has made an appearance on the benchmarking website AnTuTu giving us a clearer picture on how the device will shape up. The listing reveals the codename (TA-1035) and specification of the smartphone.
If the listing is to be believed, the smartphone will sport a 5-inch HD display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 212 processor backed by 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, but there is no mention of the microSD card slot. Optics wise, the Nokia 2 is tipped to boast a 5MP rear camera and an 8MP front facing shooter. It will run the Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.
It is still unclear when the device will be unveiled, but HMD Global has sent out invites for a launch event on October 31, where it is expected to launch the Nokia 2. The smartphone is likely to be a cheaper variant of the Nokia 3 which was launched earlier this year. The smartphone features a 5-inch display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, powered by MediaTek MTK 6737, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, with an option to expand up to 128GB via a microSD card.
The front and rear camera have both 8MP sensors. Fuelled by a 2650mAh battery, the phone operates Android 7.0 Nougat. Nokia has also promised to release monthly security OS updates to the smartphones as soon as they are available for a safer Android ecosystem.
