The Nokia brand is making a comeback in the smartphone market after launching Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8. And now Nokia is all set to launch the reincarnated version of 3310 in the smartphone market. 

If you already have a smartphone, you might not be satisfied with the Nokia 2. But of course one has to keep in mind that this smartphone is priced on the cheaper side. It might not satisfy someone having flagship device. Nokia 2 is aimed for the first time smartphone users and is believed to overwhelm the Indian market.

Now let’s talk about the design

The budget smartphone has come up with a high end design. The phone is framed with aluminium with a polycarbonate back side. The device is easy to handle. And the phone will come with three colour options to choose from: Black, White and Copper. However, the phone lacks fingerprint scanner and that might disappoint many users.

The phone has got a 5-inch HD screen display. It has resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The High Definition screen comes with the contrast ration of 13000:1. In addition, the phone has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The display is pretty much decent compared to the price.

Android Nougat 7.1.1 is teamed up with Nokia 2 and this is a first for Nokia’s phone in this segment. Nokia promises to keep this version, i.e. the Nokia 2 ‘pure secure and up to date’ for future-proof quality. The device will also be receiving update for Android Oreo in its due course of time.

The smartphone is also loaded with some good features which were unexpected in this budget. The smartphone supports LTE 4G. It also features the Google Assistant which has the choice to get search results in Hindi language. This voice assistant is also featured for the first time.

Nokia 2 was launched with the price of 99 euros for the global market, which is a little bit over Rs. 7000 according to the Indian currency. However for the Indian market, the price is expected to be lesser. Though the price for the Indian market has not been disclosed yet, it is expected to be around Rs. 6000 to Rs. 6500. 


Nokia is launching its product with a very positive hope of conquering the Indian market. Larry Paulson, the head of Qualcomm India said, “We all know the history of Nokia and how strong it was in India. Yes, 2017 is a different world but it’s a big market and there is a lot of room for many brands to be successful. If Nokia executes, they have a solid chance of being a winner in the market.”
