The GeekBench listing also revealed that the mobile device would arrive with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.27 GHz and the smartphone will run on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system out of the box.

BGR reported that the smartphone could look like the Windows mobile smartphone, Lumia 620.

The Nokia 2 smartphone still has no release date yet, but the tech giant is planning to launch the Nokia 8 on August 16. The company has recently sent out the invites for the event, and the launch will transpire in London. The flagship mobile device will likely arrive with a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset and a dual rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics. The smartphone is also expected to come with a 2K display.

In spite of that, following the roll out of the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 handsets, the company acquired a good reception from the industry. Nevertheless, tech enthusiasts are expecting the company to launch a budget, entry-level handset and more flagship mobile devices. However, the entry-level smartphone will be covered by the Nokia 2, while the flagship handset would be fulfilled by the Nokia 8.
