Manila, Philippines, 6 February 2018 – HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the local pricing and availability of the Nokia 2.
Nokia phones are associated with great battery life. The Nokia 2 takes this to a whole new level. With its two-day battery life, the Nokia 2 will keep going long after other smartphones need recharging.
The phone’s impressive 4100mAh battery doesn’t come at the expense of performance. Combining a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ quadcore Mobile Platform and a 5-inch HD display with the pure, secure and up-to-date AndroidTM experience, the Nokia 2 offers technology that today’s users can depend on, all day every day.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, said:
“People rely on their phones so much these days, with many subconsciously rationing their battery life when out and about so the phones 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 that lives up to the long-lasting battery life so many users expect with 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 users a long-lasting phone they can rely on.”
Shannon Mead, HMD Global Philippines Country Manager, said:
“Filipinos lead a busy lifestyle juggling work, family and other personal activities, from spending time with friends to pursuing passion projects. The Nokia 2 was created for consumers with that lifestyle in mind. With its two-day battery life, the Nokia 2 is built to last longer than other smartphones, enabling users to further immerse themselves in productive work and continuous entertainment.”
Built to last in every way
The Nokia 2 delivers unrivaled 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 aluminum while the Corning® Gorilla® Glass is complemented by sculpted polycarbonate on the back, delivering both a great feel and sturdy build-quality users expect from a Nokia phone. Premium materials and thoughtful, ergonomic design combine to create a unique model that’s as practical as it is stylish, leaving users free to enjoy an affordable, long-lasting smartphone experience.
Edward Tan, MemoXpress Vice President for Operations, said:
“Indeed, the all-new Nokia 2 lives up to the brand’s legacy of durability and battery life longevity. Most smartphones today cannot handle the increasing phone activity and requirements of users and therefore require repetitive charging in a day. Nokia’s changing the game with the Nokia 2’s long battery life, and we’re excited for the Filipinos to experience it.”
Always pure, secure and up-to-date Android
Nokia smartphones always offer a pure, secure and up-to-date Android experience, with incredible features such as Google Assistant but no preinstalls or skins. Launching with Android Nougat and upgradeable to Android Oreo, the Nokia 2 receives monthly security updates to ensure the smartphone is safe and up-to-date.
Freedom to do more
It’s not just about the high-capacity two-day battery. The 5-inch LTPS LCD HD display offers a bright, crisp viewing experience at lower power consumption. The Nokia 2 gives users the freedom to fully immerse in continuous entertainment–from HD videos and crisp, clear photos to favorite songs, social media and web browsing–without worrying about running out of battery.
With an 8MP rear camera featuring automatic scene detection and auto focus, the Nokia 2 delivers fantastic shots every time. Using the 5MP front camera, users can capture any moment from any angle. There will always be extra capacity for all the photos and videos captured with the phone’s dedicated memory card slot and unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos.
Karel Holub, Chief Argonaut at argomall.com, said:
“Customers are very particular with the brand they choose but are also willing to experiment as long as the balance of value for money is met. I am confident that the Filipino market will be optimistic about the new Nokia 2, which packs among other features two-day battery life and regular Android updates at a favorable price.”
Available in Pewter Black, and Pewter White variants, the Nokia 2 is priced at a suggested retail price of P5,290 and will be available in MemoXpress stores nationwide, online at argomall.com and in Nokia stores, kiosks and exhibits nationwide.
