Verizon Prepaid on Thursday began offering its latest smartphone, the Nokia 2 V. Priced at just $69.99, the handset represents one of the first steps in Nokia’s return to the US market.
The Nokia 2 V runs Android Oreo Go Edition which means it’s not built for high-end performance. Nevertheless, there’s plenty here to satisfy the needs of someone buying their first smartphone. What’s more, it’s priced to move.
With a 5.5-inch display, the phone offers up an 8-megapixel rear camera and front-facing 5-megapixel shooter for selfies. Power comes from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor with 8GB worth of storage space.
Although it might not run circles around other phones, it’s got a decent battery life. With 4,000mAh worth of power it ought to be enough to get through two days of basic usage. The target demographic is a lesser demanding one, sure, but it still has needs. To that end, the battery is larger than what most phones offer.
