Nokia 2.2 specifications and features
The Nokia 2.2 succeeds last year's Nokia 2.1 with a number of incremental improvements. The phone features a 5.71-inch display with smaller bezels and a resolution of 720 x 1,520 pixels. Similar to the Nokia 3.2 and the Nokia 4.2, the phone features a waterdrop-styled notch on top which makes room for the selfie camera.
Nokia does seem to like the idea of a wider chin to slap on the name of the brand on the front and we see that on the Nokia 2.2 as well.
What does make the entry-level Nokia 2.2 special though, is another feature that's featured on every budget Nokia device launched this year — a dedicated Google Assistant button.
Inside, the Nokia 2.2 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 chipset with either 2 GB or 3 GB RAM onboard.
The rear-facing camera of the Nokia 3.2 is a single 13 MP shooter with autofocus and a LED flash. On the front, we have a 5 MP shooter which works for selfies but also doubles up to allow Face Unlock.
The Nokia 2.2 features a 3,000 mAh removable battery and runs on Android Pie, with an assured update to Android Q once it arrives.
