Nokia just launched its cheapest Android One phone in India today, the Nokia 2.2. As the name suggests, it is a successor to the Nokia 2.1 of last year. The base variant of the phone is priced at Rs 6,999 or $100, so it’s a super cheap phone from the company still, it packs some excellent features for the price.
The design of the Nokia 2.2 is pretty good despite the super cheap price tag. There is a glossy polycarbonate back panel & a 19:9 display on the front featuring a waterdrop notch. There is a huge bottom bezel but that’s normal for such a super cheap device. One interesting thing about the design is that dedicated Google Assistant button on the left.
The display on the front is a 5.71-inch HD+ panel with 19:9 aspect ratio & 400 nits of brightness. The processor powering the phone is a Quad-Core 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio A22. There is 2/3GB RAM & 16/32GB internal storage. The storage can be expanded up to 400GB via micro SD card.
Coming to the cameras, the Nokia 2.2 has a single 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture & 1.12um pixel size. On the front, there is a single 5MP camera. Some camera features include HDR, Panorama, Low Light enhancement, Time Lapse, Beautification, & Google Lens.
Android 9 Pie runs out of the box & since it is an Android One phone, the Nokia 2.2 will get two major Android updates. Finally, there is a 3,000mAh battery & the phone comes with a 5W charger in the box.
