HMD Global has launched a new entry-level phone for Verizon, the Nokia 2 V Tella (a successor to the earlier 2 V model). 

Nokia 2 V Tella launched

The handset  is built around a 5.45-inch display with 720p+ resolution (18:9) and runs Android 10 out of the box. The full fat Android, not Go like the original 2 V or the similarly-priced Nokia 1.3. On the side of Nokia 2 V Tella there is a Google Assistant button.

The Tella is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, a 12nm part with four Cortex-A53 cores (2.0 GHz) and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The chipset is paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage (double what the original 2 V got). A microSD card slot is available if you need more room.

The camera is another upgrade, the rear is now home to an 8MP main shooter and a 2MP depth sensor. The latter is used for customizable bokeh effects, you can pick between Classic, Star, Heart, Butterfly, Flake and Water Drop.

The camera snaps photos before and after you press the shutter, then lets you pick the best one. There’s also a Portrait mode that works even in the dark.

The Nokia 2 V Tella packs a 3,000mAh battery, which HMD says is enough to last 2 days of general use. It charges over USB-C and while 10W charging is supported, you only get a 5W adapter in the box. An “AI-assisted Adaptive Battery” keeps an eye on what apps you use the most and allots a bigger share of the battery to them.

In terms of connectivity, the Tella features LTE Cat. 6, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and has a built-in GPS for positioning. There’s also a 3.5 mm headphone jack plus FM radio receiver.
