We have heard that HMD Global had plans to bring the low-end Nokia 2 to the US, and if you are indeed looking for a budget Android handset, then you’ll be pleased to learn that the reports are true and that the Nokia 2 has finally made its way to the US where you’ll be able to get your hands on it for just $100.

The handset is currently available from the likes of Amazon and Best Buy where they are sold unlocked. This means that they are not tied to any specific carrier, which means that you’ll have to get a line for it, although you’ll want to check on whether or not the handset will be compatible with the carrier of your choice.

Given its price, safe to say that the Nokia 2 is not what many would consider a high-end phone. However at $100, it does seem to be somewhat decent if you’re looking for a cheap second phone or one for your kids. It will feature a 5-inch 720p HD display, the use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will come with Android Nougat.

However as HMD had promised, the Oreo update should arrive for the Nokia 2 by the end of the year.
