  • Nokia 2

HMD Global, which sells Nokia-branded smartphones, feature phones and tablets, on Friday announced rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its Nokia 8 smartphone. HMD Global said the Nokia 2 will be available worldwide by mid-November for Euro 99. Now, the company has finally revealed the price and availability of the Nokia 2 for the Indian market. It is still unclear whether this model will retail on online e-commerce sites like Amazon or Flipkart in the future.

The battery-centric Nokia 2 comes in three colour options - Pewter Black, Pewter White and Copper Black. It packs a 4,100 mAh battery.

The Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3-inch quad-HD IPS display with 700 nits of brightness, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with 4GB of RAM under the hood, and 64GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot. The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass level 3 protection.




The budget phone comes equipped with an 8 megapixel primary camera with an LED flash. The modest Snapdragon 212 SoC on the phone is likely to aid the battery life. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and offers an nearly stock experience.

The 8 is the newest product from Nokia and it offers superb value for a flagship phone. Users will have to shell out Rs 309 or above across 9 recharges to get 5GB of free data handed to them per recharge.

The other big offer involves a 12-month accidental damage insurance scheme by Servify. Customers will need to open a Kotak 811 savings account and activate it with an initial deposit of Rs 1,000 in the introductory period to avail the offer. In this short comparison, lets us look at the some of the competition at this price tag.
