Nokia 2.1V for Verizon leaks out, coming soon

Remember when Verizon used to sell Nokia phones? Well according to reliable leaker Evan Blass, the carrier will do so once again, and soon.

Big Red has apparently partnered up with HDM Global for the release of the Nokia 2.1V, which will most likely be identical to the Nokia 2.1 which launched a few months ago.

It seems that HMD is ready to turn its full attention to the US market next, hence the collaboration with America’s biggest carrier.

The Nokia 2.1 is an entry-level Android Go phone, which comes equipped with a large 4,000 mAh battery. The device sports a 5.5-inch display with the classical 16:9 aspect ratio and offers the mediocre 720p resolution.

The smartphone is powered by a decent Snapdragon 425 and is backed up by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It ships with the lightweight Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition, but it will presumably get Pie at some point.

Blass doesn’t say when we can expect the Nokia 2.1V to make a debut into the wild, but since this official-looking render leaked we can expect for it to happen pretty soon.

In related news, HMD today unveiled the Nokia 3.1 Plus in India, which is the company’s latest Android One phone.
