HMD Global launches Nokia 2 smartphone for Euro 99

Since launch, the camera app on the new Nokia smartphones has been criticized for being too basic and lacking functionality that has become common place for competing smartphones.

The large 4100 mAh battery of the Nokia 2 is reported to able to last a whole 2 days before requiring charging. Currently available to Windows Phones, Nokia is now planning to bring it to their Android smartphones giving people another reason to buy new Nokia Android phones.

As the Nokia 8 sports Carl Zeiss dual-lenses, an upgraded camera app would be a boost to the phone which will also be getting the Android Oreo update along with the other recently launched Nokia phones. The phone is equipped with 4100mAh battery.

Nokia made its name by delivering some of the best phones during its era and still has its brand value as one of the most reliable brand for phones. What Windows Phones were really good at was their wonderful camera imaging technology and Lumia camera interface with features like ISO, focus, lighting, shuter speed, HDR controls assembled into one camera application making it very easy to use.

Except for the RAM and fingerprint scanner, the Nokia 2 is not actually bad at all and goes head to head with the Redmi 4.

The biggest strength of the Nokia 2 is its design. It's chassis is built using series 6000 aluminum, although the back still has a removable back cover.

We're about to find out as the Xiaomi-Nokia budget wars commence.

Technical Secrets - Mondelez International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDLZ)
The Company operates through four segments: Latin America, Asia, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA), Europe and North America. The company reported $0.57 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.54 by $0.03.

Price- The Nokia 2 has been priced at 99 euros for global markets, which is a little over Rs 7,000. It offers way better specifications than the Nokia 2, and is available on exchange offers as well. Redmi 4A is available in three colours: gold, rose gold, and dark grey.

The Nokia 2 accompanies a 8-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and a 5-megapixel selfie-camera.

The Nokia 2 comes with a 5-inch screen and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 425 SoC and comes in two variants with the more affordable 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage priced at Rs 5,999 and the other 3GB RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage variant priced at Rs 6,999. The usage of entry-level chipset means you will not get a great performance from the Nokia 2. Good thing, the Nokia 2 ships with a Qualcomm-based CPU, but then, it's lacking on some of the other aspects like RAM and ROM, that could be deal-breakers for some.

Chief product officer Juho Sarvikas Tweeted about the upcoming Lumia Camera update, confirming the revamp. That's a bold claim, though we'll reserve our judgment until we review the phone. The Redmi 4A is accessible for substantially lesser at Rs 6,999. Thankfully, internal storage can be expanded with the help of a microSD card. Redmi 4A isn't going to outperform the Nokia 2, but it is a strong contender.

The new phone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 for its processor, and a 5-inch LCD display with a 1280 by 720 pixels resolution. Both phones will give you average camera results, so one should be prepared for it.

Out of the two phones, there's definitely a victor, but it also depends on how much one is willing to spend on the device.

The Nokia 2 specifications look rather modest when compared to the competition in the sub-Rs.
