HMD Global has launched the latest budget device – Nokia 2.3, which retails at just €109. The major selling point of this device is its proclaimed two-days battery life.
The Nokia 2.3 wich is the successor of Nokia 2. 2, features a waterdrop notch 6.2-inch display with 720p resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The bottom chin features the Nokia brand name. As usual, there is a Google Assistant button on the side of the phone. No fingerprint reader here, so biometric security is done via face unlock.
Camera-wise, the Nokia 2.3 features a rear dual-camera combo, which consists of a 13 MP f/2.2 main sensor and 2 MP depth sensor. The camera comes with a feature called “Recommend Shot”.
It basically helps users pick the best/perfect picture after taking multiple pictures of the same object. According to HMD Global, the phone is able to capture highlights in low-light conditions by using its AI-powered image fusion technology. This is great for a budget phone at this the price range. Inside the waterdrop notch is a 5 MP f/2.4 front-facing camera.
Powering the Nokia 2.3 is MediaTek Helio A22 chipset coupled with 2GB RAM and 32GB ROM. There is a microSD slot which can take up to 400GB additional storage.

Also, you’re guaranteed with 2 years of software upgrades and 3 years of monthly security updates.
The 2-days battery life is due to its 4,000 mAh battery capacity. There is no fast charging support as the phone comes with a standard 5W charger. The dual SIM model of the device features Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11, GPS and GLONASS. The device is available in Charcoal, Cyan Green, and Sand body colours.
