After surprising the world last year with the return of the Nokia 3310, Finland’s HMD Global has launched a budget phone that comes with a useful feature that few new phones seem to have – long battery life.

The new Nokia 2 smartphone comes with a battery that promises to last for as long as two days with a single charge. It comes in two colours – Pewter/Black and Pewter/White – and retails at S$159. It is available for purchase from Tuesday (2 January) at popular electronics stores such as Challenger, Courts and Best Denki.

“With the Nokia 2, we wanted to replicate the unique Android experience we’ve delivered so far with the long-lasting battery which so many fans associate and expect from their Nokia phones,” said chief products officer Juho Sarvikas in a press release on Tuesday (2 January). He added that the phone’s display, chipset and system design have been engineered to draw as little power as possible.

The phone comes with a high capacity 4,100 mAh battery, a 5-inch LTPS LCD HD display screen, an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.
