Nokia 2.1 Specifications, Features and Price

HMD has just unveiled a trio of new devices – Nokia 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1. They are all upgrades to its entry-level and mid-range offerings. Two runs on Android One while the third runs the lightweight Oreo Go edition. The Android One models will receive software updates for two years and security updates for three years – that’s as much as most flagships get. Except that these are budget-friendly phones.

The Nokia 2.1 runs Android Oreo (Go Edition) and its screen has grown to 5.5-inch in diagonal (16:9, 720p). It comes with front-facing stereo speakers.

It’s powered by a modest Snapdragon 425, yet still records a tangible 50% improvement in speed due to the upgrade of Cortex-A7 cores that was in 2017 model to A53. The Nokia 2.1 maintains the same RAM and storage – 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB storage and still expandable via the microSD slot. Thanks to the Go edition OS for not demanding much.

The Nokia 2.1 features a large battery – 4,000 mAh for 2-day battery life. And the camera department is the same, 8 MP camera with autofocus on the back plus a 5 MP selfie camera on the front.
