It looks like HMD Global isn’t done yet for this year, as the latest render leaks from Evan Blass confirms that the company is preparing to release a budget Android smartphone called the Nokia 2. Yes, we are going to see a Nokia device that’s cheaper than the Nokia 3.
The design of the Nokia 2, according to the leaked renders, looks more like an ordinary smartphone in the budget segment. There isn’t any information on the size of the screen and its resolution. However, we must remind you that the Nokia 3 features a 5-inch screen with 720p resolution, a MediaTek processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. We can only guess for now that the Nokia 2 could feature a similar screen size and we hope that device won’t come with a resolution lower than 720p and RAM lesser than 2GB. We can only speculate that the processor could be any of the entry-level Snapdragon or MediaTek processors.
There is also a camera module and the Nokia logo that’s aligned vertically on the rear side of the device. This is the same design that was used on the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8. Also, judging by the size of the front camera, we think that it could be a 5MP or 8MP shooter. But hey, that’s just our speculation.

Evan Blass also specifically mentioned in his tweet that the Nokia 2 won’t be one of those which will have thin bezels. On the contrary, even the Nokia 8 didn’t come with a bezel-less display as it was rumored before its official unveiling. While the specifications of the Nokia 2 aren’t known, for now, there is one thing that was recently confirmed. According to a recent FCC certification of the Nokia 2, the device will mostly pack a large 4000 mAh battery. This is surprising because the capacity is more than the flagship Nokia 8 that packs a 3090 mAh, and far more than the Nokia 3, which features a 2630 mAh battery.
The inclusion of a large battery on a budget smartphone (priced lower than the Nokia 3) is quite a big deal for most of the budget conscious users, and HMD Global knows that there is a huge market in most of the countries. We bet that this device will sell like hot cakes, once it reaches the UAE. Stay tuned for more.
