On launching the Nokia 2 today 31st October 2017
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, said:
“People rely on their phones so much these days with many people subconsciously rationing their battery life when out and about so they can last the day. We don’t think you should have to do less with your phone which is why we created a smartphone that can power through when other devices need a pit stop.
“With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones. To make this a reality, every component of the Nokia 2- from the display to battery, chipset to system design – has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery to give fans a long-lasting phone they can rely on.”
Built to last in every way
The Nokia 2 delivers unrivalled durability in design, drawing on all the hallmarks of the Nokia phone heritage of quality, simplicity and reliability. Its sleek frame is precision-machined from a single block of aluminium while Corning Gorilla Glass is complemented by sculpted polycarbonate on the back delivering both a great feel and the build-quality you expect from a Nokia smart phone. Premium materials and thoughtful, ergonomic design combine to create a unique model that’s as practical as it is stylish, leaving you free to enjoy an affordable, long-lasting smartphone experience.
