After its global debut back in February at MWC 2019, Nokia 3.2 has finally arrived in India. This is HMD Global’s second launch this month. Earlier, the company announced Nokia 4.2 with Android One and Dual Rear Cameras. The Nokia 3.2 is basically a trimmed down version of Nokia 4.2 with the same primary camera, a larger 4000 mAh battery, and a bigger display.
How is Nokia 3.2 different from the Nokia 4.2?
Straight out of the bat, this one is a broader and bulkier phone than Nokia 4.2 weighing around 181g and stretching to 159.44 x 76.24 x 8.6 mm dimensions. The heft could be attributed to its beefier 4000 mAh battery. The larger area sports a bigger 6.26-inch screen with 720 x 1520 pixel resolution and 79 percent screen-to-body ratio.
Upfront you get a smaller 5MP (f/2.2) selfie shooter residing within a waterdrop notch. Turn to the back, you get a single 13 MP (f/2.2) rear camera. Beneath the camera panel stays a circular fingerprint scanner, Nokia and Android One branding. Unlock the device using the reader or face unlock to use the Android 9.0 Pie OS from the Android One stable.
Weirdly enough, the fingerprint scanner is available only on the 32GB variant. Speaking of storage options, you also get a 16GB model. Both of them are further expandable via microSD card up to 400GB.
Another major jump from the Nokia 4.2 is its 4000mAh battery, which as per the company could last up to two days, and has a music playback time of up to 98 hours using an earphone. This budget entrant draws power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 chip that is coupled with 2GB or 3GB of RAM.
A neat addition to the on-device buttons is a dedicated Google Assistant button. You also get connectivity solutions and other features such as 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a Micro-USB port. Nokia also packs standard sensors such as an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and a proximity sensor.
