The Nokia 2.2 will run Android Q. — Nokia

On June 6, HMD Global held a launch event to unveil Nokia's latest budget Android One smartphone, the Nokia 2.2, which features advanced AI tech and Android Pie for just over US$100 (RM415). 

HMD Global announced this week that Nokia has added another member to its Android One family: the Nokia 2.2. 

While the specs aren't anything to write home about, the handset will come out of the box powered by Android Pie, and when Android Q eventually launches, this smartphone will run it. 

Because the 2.2 will be powered by Google's latest OS, it will therefore benefit from the latest AI technology on the market; users can easily access the Google Assistant – via a dedicated button on the side – to ask questions, adjust the lights, or check their schedule. 

In terms of hardware, the phone is powered by a modest 2GHz MediaTek Helio A22 processor. Users will be able to choose between 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage. The 5MP front camera is used for facial unlock, and Nokia promises that the 13MP rear camera will produce clear shots no matter the lighting conditions. 

The device will be launched soon in Europe for €99 (RM464 or about US$112) and in India for 6,999 rupees (RM418). – AFP Relaxnews
