Verizon-Exclusive Nokia 2V Rumored to Be Sold as a Prepaid Phone

Last week, it was revealed that HMD Global will be selling the Nokia 2.1 in the US. The decision to bring this entry-level device into the country was influenced by the success the smartphone received throughout Europe and Asia.

The report, unveiled by Evan Blass, shows that the smartphone will be heading to Verizon exclusively. But this looks like there could be more to the report than what was originally unveiled.

Blass, a credible source in the smartphone industry, has revealed more juicy details about the incoming device and where it will be available. According to Blass, the device will be sold as a prepaid phone when it arrives in US shores later in the year.

In addition to its availability, Blass reported that HMD Global will be simplifying the name of the device into Nokia 2V. Despite the new name, the device continues to carry the same specs found on the Nokia 2.1. This means that it will have a 5.5-inch LCD display with a polycarbonate panel on the back. As an entry-level device, the phone will be running on a Snapdragon 425 processor with 1GB of RAM. There will be an 8-megapixel camera on the back with LED flash, and another 5-megapixel camera in front for selfies and video calls.

Surprisingly, the phone includes a powerful 4,000mAh battery and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) upon launch. An update to Pie OS has been promised to be released in the coming months.

Although these aren't specs to boast, it's important to remember that the Nokia 2V is an entry-level smartphone. When it becomes available, the device will be sold for $115.

  1. Very unimpressive. 2 GB rim should be the minimum.

  2. Overly expensive garbage.

    China gets $200 phones with snapdragon 8xx processors, while all we get is price gouged electronic trash like we're a developing nation.
