The Nokia 2.2 is an entry-level smartphone and that reflects in its specifications. It sports a 5.71-inch HD+ resolution TFT LCD display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. It has a waterdrop notch on top that houses the selfie camera.
Running on Android 9.0 Pie of the box, the Nokia 2.2 is an Android One smartphone like almost every other Nokia smartphone. This means that users can be assured about receiving two years of OS and security updates.
