Budget smartphone ‘Nokia 2.2’ launched in India with 13MP camera, 3000mAh battery

Nokia 2.2 launched in India at Rs 6,999 claims to be the cheapest Android One phone

The smartphones are available on Flipkart and Nokia's online store. The Nokia 2.2 starts at an introductory price of ₹6,999. The phone also features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 429, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a clean version of Android 9 Pie.

Nokia 2.2 is squarely aimed at budget offerings from Xiaomi and Realme. The 3GB RAM + 32GB storage option, on the other hand, is priced at INR 7,999. Coming as a successor to the Nokia 2.1, the Nokia 2.2 is not part of Android Go family, instead, it's the first Nokia 2 series smartphone to run Android One software out of the box. Nokia 2.2 is equipped with the Helio A22 chipset, which is a quad-core CPU, and either 2GB or 3GB of RAM. HMD Global claims the device will be the most affordable smartphone to get Android Q and probably the only smartphone in this segment to get a timely update. It has a 5.71-inch HD+ screen with visible but narrow bezels and a tiny waterdrop notch. These technologies learn how you like to use your phone to reduce battery drain from unused apps and services, ultimately delivering long-lasting, two-day battery life. It has a dedicated microSD card slot as well for further expansion.

The Nokia 2.2 will be available in two colours - Tungsten Black and Steel.

Zdeno Chara returns to practice ahead of Game 5
If you're speechless that Zdeno Chara was back on the ice Thursday days after reportedly suffering a broken jaw. he is too. Louis Blues boils down to a best-of-three series, starting tonight in Game 5 at TD Garden (8 p.m., NBC Sports Network).

There is a 13-MP autofocus camera at the rear with a single flash and 5MP selfie camera. Since the smartphone does not include a fingerprint reader, it uses the front-facing camera for AI-driven face unlock. The power button on this device also doubles up as the notification LED light. It comes with a Slo-Mo video mode as well, which isn't a standard feature on entry-level phones. When it comes to battery life, the Realme C2 is among the more impressive entry-level phones on the market, thanks to a large 4000mAh battery and 10W charging.

The Redmi 7 features a dual-camera setup with a combination of 12-megapixel primary lens and a 2-megapixel secondary shooter.

The only area where the Nokia 2.2 has an edge over its rivals is software. The Nokia 2.2 (a.k.a Nokia 2 2019) is the successor to last years Nokia 2.1. However, the phone will receive OS and security updates at a "regular cadence and as frequently as possible" over the next 18 months.
