Nokia's upcoming entry-level smartphone, Nokia 2, was briefly listed on US retailer Best Buy's website. The listing has been since been taken down. However, the phone's price was revealed at $99 for the short time it was up on the site.
This is not the first time that Nokia 2 is in the discussion, we have seen a number of leaks and rumours ever since it was hinted that HMD Global is working on Nokia 2 as their entry-level device. It was recently reported that the phone would be available in Myanmar by November and it is likely to run Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset. Renders of the phone have leaked out that hint at a very similar to the current Nokia design philosophy.
Winfuture's Roland Quandt revealed earlier that the phone is expected to pack a massive 4,000 mAh battery which no doubt would offer a long battery life considering the processor is clocked at 1.1 GHz. In addition to a low-powered processor, the device is expected to sport a 4.7-inch HD display.
Recently Nokia launched its latest smartphone — the Nokia 7 — in the Chinese market. The phone joins the line up of HMD Global's Android-powered Nokia handsets but it is the first one to come with a glass back. The company has priced the device starting from CNY 2,499 (approx Rs 25,000) for the 4 GB RAM variant up to CNY 2,699 (approx Rs 27,000) for the 6 GB RAM variant.
