Excise duty on smartphones decreases by 50% and Samsung was the first one to react. Following the footstep, Nokia also recently slashed the price of its various smartphones. And by cutting down the prices, the company also seems to be making way for the new smartphones. As quoted by a Nokia Nepal official, the company is now on the verge of two new budget-oriented smartphones: Nokia 2.2 and Nokia 3.2.

Nokia 2.2 Overview:

The Nokia 2.2 is a budget-friendly device launched in the international market just a week back. When it was announced, the phone received quite a lot of appreciation. It was mainly for the software. The phone comes with an unadulterated stock version of Android Pie out of the box. As the phone is a product of Google’s Android One program, the phone will receive timely software updates and security patches from Google itself. The Nokia 2.2 is also one of the cheapest smartphones in line to get the Android Q update (as soon as it gets released).

Being a budget phone, other specs on the phones are quite modest. The phone comes with a 5.71-inch display with HD+ resolution. Going with the trend, Nokia has also incorporated a tiny water-drop style notch on the top. There is the MediaTek Helio A22 chipset to look after the performance on this device. And 2/3GB RAM is provided to complement the performance. Talking about the storage, the phone comes in 16GB and 32GB variants.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the phone gets a single shooter both on the front and on the back. The rear camera enjoys a single 13MP shooter, whereas a 5MP snapper captures the selfies.
