One of the most affordable Android phones
Nokia has launched a good number of budget phones. Over the past 5 months of 2019, we have seen the company launch the Nokia 1 Plus, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2. These phones are already available in Kenya. The 2.2 now joins the long list of affordable Nokia phones in Kenya. It will be interesting to see how it competes with budget devices from other manufacturers. This phone is no doubt one of the most affordable Android One gadgets that you can buy in the country.
This phone is an upgrade of Nokia 2.1, so it is fair to expect it to look better than its predecessor. Yes, it is a better-looking phone that comes with a 5.71 inches display with HD+ resolution and a U shaped waterdrop notch. The rear panel is polycarbonate and it is removable.
It appears Nokia has decided to make this a standard in all the phones that it’s going to launch in 2019. There is a Google assistant button on the left side, just like on the Nokia 4.2 and the 3.2. The dedicated AI button allows the user to launch the assistant fast. All you need is a single tap.
Powered by MediaTek Helio P22 Chipset
Nokia 2.2 is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 chipset paired with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM. The 2GB RAM variant has 16GB internal storage space while the latter has 32GB internal storage space. This phone should offer faster performance than its predecessor which has only 1GB of RAM and Snapdragon 425 processor. You are not going to deal with toned down Android Go apps on this device. It has full-fledged Android Pie OS with no bloatware. And since it is featured in Google’s Android One program, you should expect timely Android security patches and major software updates. According to HMD Global, the 2.2 is going to be among the first devices that will be upgraded to Android Q.
AI powered cameras
Nokia 2.2 is equipped with AI-powered cameras that the company says perform very well in low light environments. It has a 13 megapixels rear camera and 5 megapixels front camera for selfies. This phone is fueled by a 3000mAh battery and comes with a 5W charger.
