The smartphone is fuelled with a 4100mAh battery with Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0 technology. Cameras in the Nokia 2 include a 5MP front-facing camera and a 8MP rear camera.

HMD has priced the Nokia 2 at Euro 99 starting mid-November. The Indian price of the smartphone is yet to be revealed by the company.
