Nokia 2.2 Android One phone with face unlock launched: Price, specifications and release date

first_imgNokia 2.2 has been launched in India. HMD Global announced its new Android One device for the budget market in Italy while simultaneously launching it in India as well. The Nokia 2.2 succeeds last year’s Nokia 2.1. Some of the biggest upgrades include the move from Android Go to Android One, waterdrop notch display and a new Google Assistant button, among other things.As one would guess, the Nokia 2.2 is part of HMD’s budget lineup of smartphones with introductory prices starting at Rs 6,999 for the 2GB + 16GB memory and storage variant and Rs 7,999 for the 3GB + 32GB model. This also makes the Nokia 2.2 the most affordable Android One phone in India. Following the limited time price offer, the Nokia 2.2 will be available for Rs 7,699 and Rs 8,699 for the 2GB and 3GB RAM variants, respectively.The Nokia 2.2 is up for pre-orders in India starting today on Nokia.com/phones and will go on sale from June 11 through offline retail markets across India, Nokia online shop and Flipkart. Jio subscribers on Nokia 2.2 will get instant Cashback of Rs 2,200 along with 100GB additional data which will be applicable on recharges of Rs 198 and Rs 299. The cashback will be offered in the form of 44 coupons worth Rs 50 each.Nokia 2.2 specificationsThe Nokia 2.2 brings a fresh new design compared to its predecessor. On the front, the bezels have been reduced and the Nokia 2.2 gets a teardrop notch like the Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2. The Nokia 2.2 sports a 5.71-inch HD+ display with brightness up to 400 nits. Tthe Nokia 2.2 houses a 3,000mAh battery.advertisementThe entry-level Nokia 2.2 comes with a glossy plastic unibody shell on the back in Steel and Tungsten Black with the option to interchange it with XPress On covers in Taurus Green, Pink Sand and Icy Blue. Like the Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2, the Nokia 2.2 also gets a dedicated Google Assistant button that will allow the user to quickly launch the AI with a simple tap of the button. The Google Assistant button will likely be a staple feature with future Nokia phones. Another notable upgrade is the software. The Nokia 2.1 was part of the Android Go program, which means it offered a stripped down version of Android Oreo with Go-based apps optimised for phones low on RAM and storage. The Nokia 2.2, however, is an Android One device, which means it gets the regular, full-blown version of stock Android Pie. It also means the Nokia 2.2 will get at least two major software updates and monthly security patches for at least three years.The Nokia 2.2 is powered by a MediaTek A22 chipset paired with up to 3GB of RAM. As mentioned above, the Nokia 2.2 is the most affordable Android One phone. With Android Pie, you will get features like new navigation gesture, Adaptive Brightness, Adaptive Battery and Digital Wellbeing among others. It is also Android Q-ready and should be among the first set of Nokia phones to get updated to Android Q.HMD is also touting a sophisticated AI camera with something called low-light image fusion. The Nokia 2.2 sports a single 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that supports face unlock. Both the rear and front cameras support AI low-light fusion where the camera snaps multiple images simultaneously to create a single bright shot in low-light.ALSO READ | Amazon Alexa will soon help you plan a perfect date nightALSO READ | Motorola could launch new sub-Rs 10,000 Android smartphone very soon, specifications leakedALSO READ | This is Samsung Galaxy Note 10 with centre punch-hole display, triple rear cameraslast_img read more

Dhoni credits tennis ball cricket for quick hands behind stumps

first_imgChennai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is lightning quick behind the stumps and the veteran wicket-keeper batsman said it is a skill which he has developed from tennis ball cricket. Talking about his super quick stumpings, Dhoni said, “I think it’s something that’s come from tennis ball cricket. But you still have to do the basics and graduate to that level. If you want to keep like that you can make mistakes; so I still think basics are most important.” Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju Skipper Dhoni has been in super form in the ongoing IPL and after sitting out for a couple of matches due to fever and a stiff back, he smashed an unbeaten 44 off 22 balls to power Chennai Super Kings to 179 against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday night.

OSU mens soccer defends Wolstein Classic title in overtime

Ohio State men’s soccer’s first win of the 2012 season was doubly important – it also clinched its second consecutive Wolstein Classic championship.OSU (1-2-1) captured its first win against Davidson, 3-2, on Sunday in an overtime victory in the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes drew with Coastal Carolina, 1-1, Friday to stay in the running for their second consecutive tournament title. The Buckeyes, also tournament hosts, rallied from 2-0 deficit to capture the tournament.“It’s awesome. It’s such a relief for us because we have been so close for so long,” said senior midfielder Austin McAnena. “I mean every single game we have been pretty unlucky at the end of games, and that last goal we got lucky and I think that can really turn our season around.”OSU coach John Bluem wasn’t too happy with how his team started in the beginning of the game, but was proud of the way his team finished.“It feels great. I thought we would already have won one by now,” Bluem said. “We lost some games we thought we could have won. Today was a game we thought we could win, and then we put ourselves in a really deep hole. Really proud of our players that they hung in there and got the win today.”With the Buckeyes down, 2-0, in the second half, things went from bad to worse, as sophomore midfielder Yianni Sarris was hit with a red card early in the period, and forced the Buckeyes to play with only 10 players on the field. Instead of the man-down scenario setting OSU back even more, it spurred the Buckeyes to a revival.“We all kind of looked at each other,” sophomore forward Kenny Cunningham said. “Let’s get it together; this is a turning point of our season. If we get this together, the whole season turns around.”Shortly after the red card, senior midfielder Sebastian Rivas scored the first goal for the Buckeye. Then freshman defender Alex Bujenovic tied the game up 2-2 with a free kick that forced overtime.In the 97th minute, Cunningham put Davidson away for good with a powerful, game winning shot.If the game had two different stories of the intensity level for the Buckeyes, McAnena said the penalty on Sarris ignited the team and brought them together.“I think it was just the intensity,” McAnena said. “We were a man down, and we really needed to pick it up. It was kind of our last stand, and when we were down 2-0, with Sarris on the bench, we just had to start attacking.”After the game, Bluem pointed out the issues with his team early in the season, but said he felt the team came together at the right time on Sunday.“I think one of the issues with the team through the first four games have been a little bit of selfishness,” Bluem said. “They got to start looking for each other rather than thinking about themselves, and I think they did that when we were a man down. They collectively came together and played harder for each other, so that is a good step.”As the team prepares for San Diego on Friday, there are other areas Bluem wants to correct within the team.“I think we need to be better defensively,” Bluem said. “We have allowed too many goals. Our goalkeeper has made some mistakes, as well as our back four, in allowing goals.”With the win, Cunningham said OSU no longer faces the pressure of taking its first victory.“It’s hard to explain, once you lose a couple of games in a row, it seems like impossible to win,” said Cunningham. “So getting out of this hole was really important for us, and for us to win our first game, it was really important.” read more

With confidence in hand Ohio State baseball still in search of consistency

Ohio State baseball is hoping it can lean on the leadership of an experienced squad featuring 15 upperclassmen in the 2013 season. After an up-and-down 2012 season where it went 33-27, OSU coach Greg Beals said the key to the team’s success will lie with the familiarity the players and coaches have with one another. “We believe we’ve developed a good understanding of each other and confidence in each other,” said Beals, who is 59-55 in his two-plus years at the helm in Columbus, said. “We know what to expect from each other and we really feel like that’s going to serve us well as we work our way through this season.” The Buckeyes will be without junior pitcher and first baseman Josh Dezse for at least the first two months of the season after he suffered a stress reaction in his lower back in early February. A key contributor last year, Dezse compiled a 2.86 ERA with seven saves as a pitcher, as well as hitting .306 with five home runs, 33 RBI and 31 runs scored at the plate. And as if losing Dezse was not enough, OSU opened the season by dropping two of its first three games over the weekend in Sarasota, Fla. Before earning its first win of the season against St. John’s 3-1 Sunday, OSU was blown out by Notre Dame, 13-3, Saturday and fell to Mercer University, 6-5 Friday. Redshirt senior right-handed pitcher Brad Goldberg, who earned the Buckeyes’ lone victory, was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week Monday after his strong outing against the Red Storm. Goldberg allowed only two hits and struck out seven over seven shutout innings. The last Buckeye to win a Big Ten weekly award was then-freshman outfielder Pat Porter with Freshman of the Week on April 9 last season. He has gotten his sophomore season off to a hot start as well, leading the team in batting average (.400), runs scored (4), total bases (7), slugging percentage (.700) and on-base percentage (.500). Porter is also tied for the team lead in hits with four. Although early in the season, OSU might need more production as a team if it wants to contend for a Big Ten title. In their first three games, the Buckeyes are only hitting .232 and have been outscored 20-11. Their pitchers have an ERA over five and they have committed six errors in the field. Beals said in order to get better as a team, the Buckeyes will need to improve in a couple of areas. “We need to improve our mental toughness in tight games. Sometimes we worry about losing a game instead of worrying about how we’re going to win the game,” he said. “That’s the one thing, and I just think we need to improve our consistency. We play very, very good at times and we struggle at times. Great teams are consistent.” OSU will travel to Port Charlotte, Fla., for the Snowbird Baseball Classic to play a pair of two-game series against South Dakota State Friday and Saturday and Mount Saint Mary Saturday and Sunday. OSU is scheduled to play the Jackrabbits Friday at 4 p.m. read more

I want to do what I know I can do.“It will take time to adapt to everything but I’m just happy I’m playing football after my injury. I appreciate every time I put on my boots.”When asked who should play him in a movie, Ibrahimovic said: “Probably somebody like [Sylvester] Stallone.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…The forward admitted that he may be unable to watch the Manchester derby on Saturday due to the jet lag he is currently recovering from, as United will be looking to prevent their local rivals Manchester City from claiming the Premier League title.“I don’t know because of the jet lag, probably not at that time!

Hopefully things go well – let’s see if I’m awake.”But Ibrahimovic is confident that his former United coach Jose Mourinho will have a plan to spoil the celebrations for City.“I think they are pumped. They are looking forward to a game like that because obviously City are ahead by many points and the rest of the league is not playing for the Premier League trophy,” predicted Ibrahimovic.“They are playing for the Champions League and the places behind City so someone will want to give them a little shake like Liverpool did the other day.“I know the coach very well. He is very motivated for these kind of games and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want them to become champions against him. He’ll make sure of that.”last_img read more
