Nokia 3.1 comes to the US via special AT&T and Cricket models

The Nokia 2.2 is the latest smartphone from HMD Global.

What does make the entry-level Nokia 2.2 special though, is another feature that's featured on every budget Nokia device launched this year - a dedicated Google Assistant button. Both handsets are identical except for carrier-specific branding but are not to be confused with the regular Nokia 3.1, which uses different components. The Cricket wireless Nokia 3.1 C will be launched on June 14th and the Nokia 3.1 A AT&T version will be launched on June 10th. As of now, there is no information about the pricing of these devices. The device sports polycarbonate body with a 2.5D curved glass on the front.

The Nokia 2.2 features a 5.7-inch IPS panel with HD+ resolution.

The device is powered by a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 mobile processor and it also comes with 2GB of RM and 32GB of storage.

The smartphone is offered in Steel and Tungsten Black colors and is priced at INR6,999 ($100) for the 2GB/16GB model, and INR7,999 ($115) for the 3GB/32GB variant. They have 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and an expandable memory up to 128GB via microSD card slot. On the front, users get an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture.

In the camera department, there is a slight decrease in the camera sensor as now there will be an 8 MP rear shooter instead of a 13 MP shooter in the previous 2018 model. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and USB Type-C port. The render states that the phone will come with vanilla Android Pie experience out-of-the-box. For Cricket Wireless, this is the 2nd phone being offered after the bigger Nokia 3.1 Plus came to the carrier earlier this year. Other than this new feature, the new software update focuses on improved system stability and UI enhancements. Nokia, however, promises regular updates and patches over an 18-month period.
