HMD Global's most affordable Android-powered Nokia phone so far hits shelves in India this Friday.

HMD Global has managed to successfully revitalize the Nokia brand with reliable, secure phones with an impressive price-performance ratio, and as far as the current range goes, they don’t come much more pocket-friendly than the Nokia 2.

The entry-level 5-inch device is already available in various markets, including the US, and now the Finnish company has announced that its most affordable Android-powered Nokia phone yet will go on sale in retail stores in India from tomorrow (November 24th).

The phone will be priced at ₹6,999 and comes in three color options: Black, White, and Copper. As an added bonus, Reliance Jio customers will also get a meaty 45 GB of data to play with, as well as an additional 5 GB for every top-up of ₹309 or above until August next year (limited to nine top-ups).

While it isn’t exactly a stunner to look at, its aluminum frame and polycarbonate back offers consumers a sturdy package for the money. Plus, as we all know, true beauty is on the inside, and it’s here where the Nokia 2 delivers.

Here’s why I think Nokia 8 is the top choice for a mid-range flagship smartphone

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor backed by 1 GB of RAM and a 4,100 mAh battery. HMD Global promises the phone’s low-power chipset and gigantic battery come together to offer two days of juice on a single charge.

The company has also promised regular security updates and OS upgrades too. Out of the box the Nokia 2 runs Android Nougat, but if HMD Global sticks to its words then an Android 8.0 Oreo update should be just around the corner.

The Nokia 2 also comes with 8 GB of storage as standard (expandable up to 128 GB), dual-sim support, an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP selfie snapper. That might sound a little dreary if you’re used to flagship-grade specs, but the Nokia 2 is a great little device that would definitely be a perfect gift for a first-time smartphone user.
