Nokia’s latest entry to the Android One budget lineup, the Nokia 2.3 has gone official today. The handset, being wallet-friendly, carries a modest price tag of €109.
In terms of design, the Nokia 2.3 comprises of a simple body made out of polymer. Despite a classic chassis, the front houses a notch that embodies the 6.2-inch 720p display with fairly small bezels. Looking at the side, you’ll find a dedicated button for Google Assistant; whilst holding the phone will give you an additional grip, thanks to the 3D nano-textured cover.
Under the helm is the MediaTek Helio A22 chipset that pairs with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded.
A 4,000mAh battery is what powers the device. And Nokia claims it to last for 2 days. However, there’s no fast charging support to quickly charge the mammoth battery.
Likewise, being an Android One phone comes with its own perk. The Nokia 2.3, like every other Android One smartphone from Nokia, will get 2 years of Android update and 3 years of monthly security updates. And the company, as of late has been pretty consistent on delivering this promise. Unfortunately, the device still boots on Android 9 Pie out of the box with Android 10 out of sight. Period.
To sum it up, no fancy hardware and stock Android could be pretty lackluster for most users but the Nokia 2.3 rightfully serves the purpose of an entry-level phone with impressive battery life and timely security updates.
