Just weeks after the phone was announced for the Indian market, the Nokia 2.2 is now available in South Africa.
The latest addition to HMD Global’s smartphone offerings is set to replace the Nokia 2.1, which debuted in South Africa in September 2018.
The budget smartphone features a 5.7 inch display with 1520×720 resolution, a Mediatek Helio A22 chipset, and a choice of either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage or 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Likely the latter will only be offered in South Africa, but we’ve reached out to HMD Global’s local representatives for clarification.
Both versions feature a microSD card slot, headphone jack, support for Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11 n.
The phone also features a 13MP f/2.2 rear camera with autofocus, and a 5MP selfie camera.
Powering the entire package is a 3000mAh battery, and the phone will receive two years’ worth of OS updates and three years’ worth of security patches. It’ll run Android Pie out of the box.
The Nokia will be available in black, for R1899 through Vodacom.
