Again, the rumour mills are working overtime in making the right guess on the Nokia smartphone model that is set to be launched in India on October 31. The company has sent out the invite without mentioning the deviceās particulars. The overwhelming opinion appears to be that the Nokia 2 will be the phone that HMD Global will reveal on that day. And this is not without reason.
The device has been noticed on the benchmarking site AnTuTu and based on the information obtained from there the specifications of the phone are also being rumored.
It is expected that the Nokia 2 would fill the gap in its offerings with the Nokia 3, 5 and 9 in the last round. The Nokia 2 may be sold at a price point of around Rs 6, 000, probably with the intention to compete with phones like the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A from the aggressive Xiaomi.
In terms of the specifications, the current expectations are that the Nokia 2 will sport a display of 5 inches or a little below that and the RAM would be 1GB and the internal memory storage 8GB. The processor, if one goes by the AnTuTu listing details, will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 212. And if that is true, it will reinforce the theory that this would be low end phone. However, in the same breath, the rumors indicate that the battery to be fitted on the Nokia 2 would be ad huge as 4000mAh.
On the camera front, the speculation is that the rear sensor could be 8MP in size and the front camera 5MP. In the case of the OS, the Nokia 2 will be run by the Android Nougat, with the indication that the Oreo upgrade will happen sooner than later.
If it is not Nokia 2, then HMD Global may launch either Nokia 7 which it has started selling in China quite recently.
