The Nokia 2 V Tella for Verizon is launching with Android 10 out-of-the-box. And this phone is packed with all of the features that would be expected with that. Everything from Dark Mode and Family Link to Digital Wellbeing and Focus Mode is part of the near-stock bundle.
Additionally, this Nokia comes better-equipped than many competitors with a dual-lens, feature-rich camera. The snappers in this case are an AI-powered 8-megapixel autofocus primary camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
That arrangement, given the price, should set this device apart from many others in the bracket. HMD Global says the Nokia 2 V Tella comes with plenty of artistic features too. Including shaped bokeh blur styles that for more expressive shots. For instance, the company includes a Star, Heart, Butterfly, Flake, and Water Drop bokeh blur effect.
Moving around the side and to the front of the Nokia 2 V Tella, the design includes a dedicated Google Assistant key. And the front-facing flash-enabled 5-megapixel camera pulls double-duty for AI Face Unlocking.
Finally, under the hood and powering the above-mentioned hardware, Nokia 2 V Tella brings back a battery feature that's undoubtedly going to be a big hit among power users. Namely, the 3,000mAh battery pack — rated to last up to two days with AI-assisted adaptive power saving — is removable. That charges at 5V/2A — 10W.
Where is this available and how much does it cost?
According to HMD Global, this handset is already available in Walmart retail locations and on the Walmart website. And pricing for the Verizon-ready Nokia 2 V Tella truly is budget-friendly, starting at just $89. That puts it in the same price range as Nokia's 1.3. Otherwise, Nokia 2V Tella will become available directly via the carrier's stores and at the carrier's website "later this month."
