The Nokia 2 has popped up again at the FCC, this time in the form of 3 new variants. The appearance of the handset on the US authority’s website suggests that the phone is on its way soon, most likely at the August 16 event HMD Global is hosting.
The first Nokia 2 model to pass though the FCC was the TA-1029. The 3 most recent ones were the TA-1007, TA-1023, and TA-1035. The first features dual-SIM support, the second single-SIM, the third single-SIM, and the fourth dual-SIM. All other parameters appear to be the same including the design, chipset, battery, mainboard, and antennas.
The TA-1035 and TA-1023 are compatible with LTE Bands 2, 4, 7, 12, 17 and 38. All 4 iterations feature the same prototype Nokia 2 photo seen above. The handset had previously done the rounds of benchmarking sites, revealing that it might carry a Snapdragon 210 or 212 processor and 1GB of RAM.
These two are enough to deduce that the Nokia offering will be an entry-level affair. That’s to be expected given its numerical designation. Rumors so far have also hinted that it might sport a 5-inch 720p display and look a bit like the Lumia 620 in terms of style.
As for photography, the Nokia 2 may be blessed with an 8MP rear camera and 5MP selfie shooter. The smartphone is expected to make its debut alongside the Nokia 8 and 3G-equipped Nokia 3310. The latter became the subject of a leak itself a few days ago.
Irish telecom carrier Three Ireland recently replied to a query about the Nokia 3310 by stating that it’ll be ranging the 3G version of the handset. The launch date for the phone is either September or early October.
