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. Like all the recently launched Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 2.2 also comes with a dedicated Google Assistant hardware button and it comes powered by the Helio A22 chipset which we saw on the Xiaomi Redmi 6A whose prices start at Rs 5,999 in India. HMD Global states the Rs 6,999 price tag of Nokia 2.2 is a limited period one; Once the offer ends, the Nokia 2.2 will be available for Rs 7,699 and it comes in two variants with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
