Nokia 2: Smartphone with two-day battery life to launch in the UK on February 26

Nokia, under the wing of HMD Global, has revealed that the budget Nokia 2 will be available in the United Kingdom through a number of leading retailers – including Amazon, Carphone Warehouse and John Lewis – on February 26.

Set to retail for £99 in the region, the Nokia 9 is armed with a 5-inch LTPS IPS screen, a Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter.

Granted, those internals are nothing to write home about. But here’s something that is: The Nokia 2 is also equipped with a mammoth 4,100mAh non-removable battery – which Nokia says is good for at least two days of intermediate use.

“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,” said HMD Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas.

“To make this a reality, every component of the Nokia 2 – from the display to battery, chipset to system – 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.”

The Nokia 2 will ship running Android 7.0 Nougat when it hits the shelves in the United Kingdom on February 26, with Nokia claiming that an upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo is in the pipeline – though it didn’t specify when it will arrive.
