HMD Global has announced its newest entry smartphone, the Nokia 2.2. Combining top-of-the-line device design with modest hardware, the device is part of the Android One program and has an attractive price: only $ 100 in its basic version, about $ 390 in direct conversion.
Following the same design principles as the Samsung Galaxy M line smartphones, Nokia’s new handset has a 5.71-inch screen with thin edges at the sides and a notch at the top to hold the front 5 MP camera.
At the rear, the device has a 13 MP photo sensor, which comes with an LED flash. To ensure a more attractive price, the device leaves the digital player aside, but provides support for facial recognition on the front camera.
The most basic version of Nokia 2.2 has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB for storage, while the most powerful edition offers 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Both editions support micro SD cards up to 400 GB and come with MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core processor, made to compete with the Snapdragon 400 chips. The battery is 3000 mAh.
