The Nokia 2.3 features a large 6.2” HD+ screen and two-day battery life. Being Android 10 ready, the Nokia 2.3 will receive guaranteed monthly security updates for three years and OS updates for two years.
The Nokia 2.3 features a dual camera and comes with ‘Recommended Shot’, a new Nokia phones feature which helps one to choose the best picture. Whether it’s the mid-air backflip, the family portrait where everyone is actually smiling or the winning goal, ‘Recommended Shot’ automatically captures alternate images before and after the shutter button is pressed and suggests the best one. Alongside even more AI-powered features such as ‘Portrait Mode’ and low-light imaging, it enables the user to capture creative images in a variety of settings.
One can also save time with the Nokia 2.3 as it has a dedicated Google Assistant Button. All one has to do is use their voice to view upcoming calendar entries, commute times and other information. The Nokia 2.3 also comes with biometric face recognition, allowing one to unlock their phone at a glance.
This device also combines advanced image fusion and exposure stacking (taking numerous photos in various lighting settings and blending them together), thereby enabling the user to shoot stellar images in vibrant detail, even in low-light conditions.
The Nokia 2.3 comes in two variants – Cyan Green and Charcoal – at a retail price of Kshs 12,000.
