Nokia 2.1 full review: Android Go, new design, all for $115

HMD Global has launched the Nokia 2.1 or the Nokia 2 (2018). The device runs on the Android Go OS, hence the name 2.1.

The device has got a redesign and looks all the way better when compared with the last year’s predecessor.

Starting off, the device has a premium-looking build, thanks to the copper colored metal frame which wraps the buttons and the camera module at the rear.

Talking about the display first, the Nokia 2.1 sports a 5.5-inch HD display giving out a resolution of 720p. There are front-facing stereo speakers at the top and the bottom of the display which would ensure an immersive sound experience. In order to protect the screen from fingerprints and smudges, the display is wrapped up with an anti-fingerprint coating.

Under the hood, we get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which can further be expanded with the help of an external SD card (up to 128GB).
