Yesterday, HMD Global announced yet another entry-level smartphone in India. The Nokia 2.2 is one of the entry-level smartphones that comes with the Android One program. A few days back, HMD launched another device named as Nokia 4.2 in India with Snapdragon 439 SoC. However this time, Nokia opted for a MediaTek SoC which is highly disappointing especially if we consider the competition. In India, it will be competing with devices like the Redmi 7 which comes with the Snapdragon 632 SoC.
