Here is the official press release from HMD Global:
Karachi, November 21, 2017 – HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announced the launch of the Nokia 2. Nokia phones are associated with great battery life; today, we announce a smartphone in Pakistan that takes it to a whole new level. With two-day battery life, the Nokia 2 is built to keep going long after other smartphones require charging.
Its impressive two-day battery life doesn’t come at the expense of performance. Combining a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Mobile Platform and a 5-inch HD display with the pure, secure and up to date Android experience, the Nokia 2 offers technology that you can depend on, all day every day.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, said:
“People rely on their phones so much these days with many people subconsciously rationing their battery life when out and about so they can last the day. We don’t think you should have to do less with your phone which is why we created a smartphone that can power through when other devices need a pit stop.
“With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones. To make this a reality, every component of the Nokia 2- from the display to battery, chipset to system design – has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery to give fans a long-lasting phone they can rely on.”
Kamran Khan, Head of Near East, HMD Global, added:
“The Nokia 2 presents a real asset for all of us who rely heavily on our phones, but more often than not are disappointed with a battery that simply can’t keep up. The Nokia 2, powered with an impressive 4,100mAh battery, will ensure the days of battery rationing stays in the past.
“Nokia 2 is launching amidst what has been a tremendous response from our fans in Pakistan to the variety of Nokia phones launched this year. We are truly pleased to enrich our offerings with this long-lasting phone that our fans can confidently rely on whenever, wherever!”
Built to last in every way
The Nokia 2 delivers unrivalled durability in design, drawing on all the hallmarks of the Nokia phone heritage of quality, simplicity and reliability. Its sleek frame is precision-machined from a single block of aluminium while Corning® Gorilla® Glass is complemented by sculpted polycarbonate on the back delivering both a great feel and the build-quality you expect from a Nokia smartphone. Premium materials and thoughtful, ergonomic design combine to create a unique model that’s as practical as it is stylish, leaving you free to enjoy an affordable, long-lasting smartphone experience.
Freedom to do more
It’s not just about the high capacity 4100mAh battery, the 5-inch LTPS LCD HD display offers a bright, crisp viewing experience while delivering lower power consumption. The Nokia 2 gives you the freedom to fully immerse yourself in continuous entertainment – from HD videos and crisp, clear photos to your favourite songs, social media, and web browsing – without worrying about running out of battery.

Using the 5MP front camera, you can capture the moment from any angle. You will always have the extra capacity you need for the memories you capture with its dedicated memory card slot and unlimited[i] photo and video uploads to Google Photos.
Always pure, secure and up-to-date Android
