Nokia Is Back With A Bang With Its 2.3
Nokia 2.3 is now official after it was launched in Cairo. The price of the model is expected to be similar like Redmi 8 and the Realme 3i. However, its price and availability in India is yet to be revealed. The Nokia 2.3 is the latest from Finnish company HMD Global, the Nokia mobile brand licensee. The device has acquired the name in the segment of camera and budget smartphone and while it ships with Android 9.0, it’s being called Android 10 ready. Featuring a dedicated Google Assistant button, a dual rear camera setup, a large display, and a ‘two-day battery life’, the Nokia 2.3 is expected to arrive soon in the Indian market.
Nokia 2.3 will be available at a price range of EUR 109 (approx. Rs. 8,600), while in Egypt, it has been priced at EGP 1,799 (roughly Rs. 8,000). The device will come up with three gorgeous colours –Charcoal, Cyan Green, and Sand. Commenting on the launch, HMD Global CPO JuhoSarvikas said, “Consumers world over have really appreciated the Nokia 2 family of products. The Nokia 2.3 is a step forward in our promise of offering you an experience that stays fresh longer – giving consumers access to two years of OS upgrades and three years of monthly security updates even in the affordable price tier. On top, it offers industry-leading AI for this segment, large screen and our signature promise of two-day battery life making it the ideal pick for those who rely on their smartphone as their primary screen.”
The dual-SIM (Nano) Nokia 2.3 boots Android 9.0 Pie. The budget smartphone flaunts a 6.2-inch HD+ (720×1520 pixels) in-cell display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM.
The Nokia 2.3 houses a dual rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture, paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor that powers the Portrait Mode and multiple bokeh effects. HMD Global is also touting a Recommended Shot feature that takes 15 images before and after shutter press, and then selects the best shot. The rear setup is accompanied by an LED flash module. On the front, the Nokia 2.3 offers a 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture.
There is 32GB of inbuilt storage on the Nokia 3.2, expandable via microSD card (up to 400GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB (v2.0), and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The smartphone runs off a 4,000mAh battery, accompanied by a 5W charger. Apart from a dedicated Google Assistant key, HMD Global says the Nokia 2.3 bears a durable polymer body with 3D nano texture for better grip.
