In January of this year, HMD Global partnered with Verizon to create the Nokia 2 V. It's more or less a Nokia 2.1 with Verizon branding. The updates are also handled by the carrier, which might explain why Android Pie is rolling out to the phone five months after the regular Nokia 2.1 got it.

Nokia 4.2 review: Performance issues spoil another budget Nokia phone

With the introduction of Plus models and decimals, HMD Global’s range of Nokia phones has taken on a somewhat bloated and hard to decipher form, far from the essential selection of handsets across various price points it started out as. With each new release, it gets harder for consumers to decide which budget phone in the burgeoning lineup is worth the money, which was no more apparent than when the Finnish company announced the Nokia 1 Plus, 3.2, and 4.2 at MWC back in February. The 4.2 appeared to be the most appealing of the bunch, and it went on sale in the US for $189 last month.
