After revealing its first-ever 5G smartphone, the Nokia 8.3 5G, HMD has now come up with two entry-level devices, Nokia 3.4 and Nokia 2.4. Let’s take a brief look at each one of the smartphones.
The Nokia 3.4 carries a 6.39-inch LCD display with 720p+ resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 400 nits of brightness, and a punch hole housing an 8MP selfie shooter.
It powers on SD460 chipset paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage expandable up to 512GB via microSD while booting on Android 10 out of the box with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 11 any time soon.
Around the back is a triple camera setup including a 13MP primary, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle, and 2MP depth sensors. For security, you can either use the fingerprint scanner downward or opt for the face unlock.
The device uses a 4,000mAh battery with up to 10W charging via USB 2.0 Type-C port, though you only get a 5W charger in the box. The connectivity features include a 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio receiver, and aptX Adaptive support for wireless headphones.
The Nokia 3.4 is going on a sale starting October for €160 (3GB/32GB). Meanwhile, there are 3GB/64GB, and 4GB/64GB variants as well.
The Nokia 2.4 brings 6.5-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. It powers on an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor coupled with 2GB/3GB RAM and 32GB/64GB onboard storage expandable via dedicated microSD whilst boots on Android 10 out of the box. And you are getting an OS upgrade for the coming 2 years and security patches for up to 3 years.
The device keeps a dual-camera setup at the back comprising a 13MP primary and a 2MP depth sensor and a single 5MP selfie shooter housed inside a teardrop notch at the front.
Unlike the predecessor, this one gets a fingerprint sensor right below the camera module at the back and the NFC for an upgrade. You are also getting a 3.5mm audio jack and FM radio. It carries a 4,500mAh cell with 5W charging via micro USB.
The Nokia 2.4 is available in Dusk (Purple), Charcoal, and Fjord colors with sales kicking off starting the end of September at €120 for the 2GB/32GB variant.
Nokia Power Earbuds
The Nokia Power Earbuds are finally making their way to the US market with a huge 3,000mAh power cell within the charging case. This should provide each bud a 5 hours of non-stop playback time, as stated. Amazingly, the total listening time allegedly maxes out to 150 hours with the case.
The earbuds are IPX7 water-resistant, hence can last as long as 30 minutes under a meter, i.e. 3ft water, however, aren’t swim-proof.
The Power earbuds are priced at €80 globally, whereas the Lite version will go on sales at €60 as of October. The Lite version comes with a lessened battery capacity — 600mAh acclaimed to provide up to 35 hours of total listening time. These do provide IPX7 water resistance though.
