Nokia 2 B&H leak points to an entry-level phone

It's still amusing that Nokia and HMD Global decided to start with a 3, 5, and 6 (skipping 4 is a bit known by now). It followed those up with an 8 and then backtracked to 7. Now it seems that Nokia will soon be filling in the other gaps, with the Nokia 2 briefly showing up at B&H Photo and being recorded before the retailer took it down. Given the numbering, it's also not surprising to learn that the Nokia 2 will be the cheapest Nokia smartphone yet and with specs to match that price.

$99 is just how much B&H was selling the Nokia 2 for a few minutes. That not only makes it Nokia's cheapest model so far but also one of the cheapest Android phones in the market to come from a big brand. It might probably also be one of the weakest.

It's been a while since we've seen smartphones powered by a Snapdragon 200 series, and the Nokia 2 could break that dry spell. It will supposedly run on a Snapdragon 212 with 1 GB of RAM. We should be probably be thankful if it even has 8 GB of storage. Given the specs, it's almost a perfect candidate for Google's Android Go customizations.

An earlier FCC filing gives the Nokia 2 a TA-1035 model number and a 4,000 mAh battery. Curiously B&H listed the Nokia 2 with dual SIM card functionality, which, even today, remains an unusual feature in the US.
