You can now purchase the Nokia 2 from Amazon and Best Buy. The phone just became available on both retailers’ sites; however, they’re constantly switching between sold out and temporarily unavailable. Amazon and Best Buy are likely going to make the phone widely available this weekend.
HMD Global’s latest phone features a 5-inch (1280×720) IPS LCD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, a 4100mAh battery, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Oreo planned.
The Nokia 2 joins the Nokia 6 and Nokia 3310 in the U.S. as the only two Nokia-branded mobile devices officially sold there. HMD Global’s been very selective with the products it brings to certain markets, and to date there hasn’t been any high-end hardware offered in the U.S. due to fierce competition at the top. The company is better off limiting the market to phones that are affordable for everyone. And the Nokia 2 certainly fits that strategy at $99.
Amazon will be attaching free two-day shipping for Prime members, and Best Buy has thousands of locations scattered throughout the nation. If you need a cheap phone and wanted an updated software experience, look no further than the Nokia 2.
