  • Nokia 2 is available in the US through Amazon, B&H, and Best Buy
  • Only carrier-unlocked Nokia 2 in black colour option is listed online
  • Nokia 6 receives minor update with Android November security patch

Nokia 2, the cheapest offering in the portfolio of Nokia smartphones by HMD Global, is now available for purchase in the US. The handset was debuted in the US last month with a price tag of $99 - weeks after its official launch in India in late October. Amazon, B&H, and Best Buy have listed the carrier-unlocked version of the Nokia 2 in only its Black colour option. The Nokia 6 is also in the news for receiving a performance update.

Amazon is set to start the shipments of the Nokia 2 on Sunday, December 3, while B&H will start its shipment process on Tuesday, December 5. Best Buy has also started accepting orders for the Nokia 2 but will make the stock ready for pickup by December 13.

The US is not the only market where the Nokia 2 is now available. The affordable smartphone also went for pre-orders in Russia last month and recently arrived in the Indian market with a price tag of Rs. 6,999. Its sales began in the country just last week through brick-and-mortar stores.

The Nokia 2 features a 5-inch HD LTPS display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC, coupled with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and 1GB of RAM. The smartphone has an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor with an LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera sensor. It has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/A-GPS, FM radio with RDS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the connectivity front and comes with an IP57-rated, drip-protected build. Besides, the handset runs Android 7.1 Nougat and packs a 4,100mAh battery.

In addition to the Nokia 2 sale in the US, HMD Global has released a new software version for the Nokia 6. The new update is sized at around 150MB and is available with a build number 00WW_3_72A. As folks at XDA Developers have spotted, the update mainly improves system stability on the Nokia 6 as well as includes some user interface enhancements. The latest software package also includes the November security update. However, the smartphone is still running on Android Nougat - no word on an update on Android Oreo.

The update for the Nokia 6 is available as an over-the-air (OTA) release. You can check its availability on your device by going to Settings > System updates.
