Last month HMD Global took the wraps off their latest entry-level smartphone in the form of the Nokia 2. Typically with such entry-level devices, we see them being targeted at emerging markets, but the good news is that if you’re after something cheap and has a sizeable battery to boot, the Nokia 2 could soon be arriving stateside.

According to a report from Pocketnow, it appears that the Nokia 2 is finding its way to several US retailers, or at least it has been listed. For example B&H is now accepting pre-orders for the handset where it is priced at $100. Both Best Buy and Amazon have also listed the phones, but neither retailer is taking pre-orders and have simply stated that it will be coming soon.

Unfortunately none of the retailers have mentioned when the phone will be released, so those who are interested will simply have to wait. For those who need a refresher on the Nokia 2, the handset will come with a 5-inch 720p HD display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chipset.

It will also come with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and Android  7.1.1 Nougat (HMD had previously promised all of its phones would be updated to Oreo by the end of the year). One of its key features is its battery which is of the 4,100mAh battery that promises about 2 days worth of usage.
