Nokia has announced the Nokia 2.3, a new budget-friendly Android One smartphone. It’s probably the cheapest Android One smartphone right now and in Europe, it is priced at €109. It has everything that a new smartphone consumer needs- quite a large display, neat and clean OS, dual-camera setup and a big battery. The phone will be launched globally very soon, along with a few other new devices.

The phone has a simple yet good looking design. On the front, there is a tall 6.2-inch 720p HD+ 2.5D curved glass display. On the right side, there is the power button and above that, there are the volume rockers. Interestingly, on the left edge of the phone, there is a dedicated Google Assistant button. The back of the phone has a nano-textured cover with micro patterns that offer a better grip. The Nokia 2.0 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio A22 chipset, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which can be expanded to up to 512GB via a microSD card.

 

In terms of camera, the Nokia 2.3 isn’t any less impressive as the back of the phone houses a dual-camera module- a 13-megapixel primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture along with a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is an LED flash on the back as well. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera for video calling and selfies. The Nokia 2.3 has got a special feature- Recommended Shot.

The phone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box and Android 10 may hit the phone anytime soon! Nokia has already provided a statement that the phone is Android 10 ready. That’s a piece of good news but well, after all, it’s an Android One smartphone, that kind of speedy updates are expected. Also, because the phone is under the Android One program, the phone will receive Android updates for two years and monthly security patches for three years. This is very good news for those jumping onto a smartphone because when it comes to software and updates, most budget phones just suck and Nokia 2.3 is surely very very promising in this case.
