After making its international debut last month, the Nokia 2.2 is arriving stateside.
The Nokia 2.2 is now available from Amazon and Best Buy in the U.S. Pricing is set at $139, and the device is sold unlocked with support for GSM carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, and Cricket Wireless.
Specs for the Nokia 2.2 include a 5.71-inch 1520x720 screen with a 5MP selfie cam in a waterdrop notch. Around back there's a 13MP camera with an AI-powered low light fusion feature that takes multiple photos and then uses algorithms to create a single photo with more light and details and less noise.
Also packed into the Nokia 2.2 is a quad-core MediaTek A22 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, and the microSD card slot will let you add up to 400GB of additional storage if you need it. There's a 3.5mm headphone jack included, which isn't something every smartphone released nowadays can say, and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side of the Nokia 2.2 will help you quickly access your digital helper.
One other notabel hardware feature of the Nokia 2.2 is its support for Nokia Xpress-on covers. The covers are exchangeable, letting you swap them and change up the look of your device
The Nokia 2.2 is an Android One phone with no added bloatware or UI changes. It includes Google's new Digital Wellbeing features like Wind Down and an improved Do Not Disturb mode. The phone runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and is guaranteed to get two OS upgrades and three years of monthly security updates.
Traditionally, budget Android phones have been stuck with software additions that slow the phone down and a lack of software updates. The Nokia 2.2 aims to change that, offering an untouched version of Android Pie and guaranteed software updates, including OS upgrades, which is great for a low-cost handset because it means that you won't have to toss it in a year because it'll be slow of out-of-date.
