HMD Global has launched a new Nokia phone in the entry-level segment. Nokia 2.3 claims to offer a 2-day battery life in dint of a 4000mAh power source. Although it would be preloaded with Android 9 Pie software, Nokia vows an Android 10 update in the future. The Finnish brand has extolled a few camera features in its bag of tricks.
Nokia 2.3 highlights
Nokia 2.3 suits in a familiar attire, i.e., a waterdrop display at the front with a big bottom bezel highlighting the brand logo. This one’s an HD+ panel that’s 6.2-inches in size and a 19:9 aspect ratio.
You could grab the phone in three dies- Cyan Green, Sand, and Charcoal.
The imaging is handled by 5-megapixel selfie snapper on the front and a 13+ 2-megapixel duo at the back. It tots a bunch of camera features like Portrait Mode, multiple bokeh effects and Recommended Shot. This last one takes 15 images before and after you press the shutter and thereafter cherry-picks the best click.
