Nokia 8: Here's What The USA Is Missing Out On

Within a few hours, the smartphone has been spotted on Amazon India. Ajey Mehta, Vice President and Country Head at HMD has announced this news on his Twitter handle. Thankfully, HMD did not increase the price of the Nokia 6, and it remains the same at Rs 14,999 even for the offline market. So, in terms of design, the Nokia 2 offers a great deal.

Nokia's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, also stated that the Nokia 5 and 6 models were next on the list for an Oreo beta program.

Nokia 2 was unveiled earlier this month and the company had revealed everything about it with the only exception of its Indian price.

The Nokia 2 ships with Android Nougat with pure and up-to-date Android experience. The device is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor along with Adreno 304 GPU, 1GB RAM, and 8GB onboard storage. There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 128GB.

The Nokia 2 is made from 6000 series of aluminium body, which provides some durability to the smartphone.

The battery-centric Nokia 2 comes in three colour options - Pewter Black, Pewter White and Copper Black. There's a 5-inch LTPS display which bears an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. According to the company, the battery is rated to provide two days of battery life on a single charge.

When the Android 8.0 Oreo update arrives, you'll get the standard new features, including notification dots for apps, picture-in-picture support, the ability to autofill passwords, the November 2017 Google security patches, and Google Play Protect security scans for apps downloaded from the Play Store.

The Nokia 2 has a rear-mounted 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash.
