Nokia, currently owned by HMD Global, is trying to make the next breed of handsets relive the glory days of strong battery life. This is something that has not been possible with the current era of smartphones. The new Nokia 2, which is due for release in the UK next year around £99, boasts a 4100 mAh battery to give you the power you need for more than one day of typical usage.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, tells us..
People rely on their phones so much these days with many people subconsciously rationing their battery life when out and about so they can last the day. We don’t think you should have to do less with your phone which is why we created a smartphone that can power through when other devices need a pit stop.
With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones. To make this a reality, every component of the Nokia 2- from the display to battery, chipset to system design – has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery to give fans a long-lasting phone they can rely on.
Nokia 2 will run Android with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, so for a cheaper handset it is packed with great features. The handset will have a 5 inch screen, 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera, which is great for £99! The Nokia 2 will be available in Pewter/Black, Pewter/White and Copper/Black.
