Nokia 2.3

Design and Display

The Nokia 2.3 is definitely bigger than the Nokia 2.2, its predecessor as it comes with a 6.2 inch display panel. At first look, we see a device with a waterdrop v-notch design and the NOKIA brand name on the bottom bezel.

At the right edge of the phone are volume and power buttons while the SIM tray and dedicated google Assistant button occupy the left. The speaker, dedicated mic and USB ports occupy the base.

On the backside of the phone is the dual camera and flash cutout, placed in a vertical manner and centered close to the top. The NOKIA brand name follows at the center. There is no fingerprint sensor as Nokia has a habit of removing it from their budget devices in support of Facial Recognition.

The display is made up of an IPS LCD touchscreen with an 80.7% screen-to-body ratio. The phone has 720 x 1520 pixels resolution, a common feature in phones in this category.

A PowerVR GE8320 graphics chip sits on board. There is also a 19:9 aspect ratio and always-on display.

Camera

The camera department may not be the best battleground for Nokia but there is a decent camera on this phone. The rear camera has dual sensors consisting of a 13MP wide main shooter and 2 MP depth sensing sensor assisting it. There is also a soft LED flash for capturing images in low light.

There is a 5MP selfie camera on the front notch. There is no LED flash like those found on the Tecno Camon 12 Air so the phone will rely on screen flash. Videos captured with this phone are recorded on 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.

Hardware and Memory

The Nokia 2.3 uses the MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 Quad-core chip fabricated with a 12nm process. The chips are clocked at a maximum speed of 2.0GHz.

The memory and storage option is pretty much the same found everywhere in this category; 2GB of RAM space and 32GB of storage space, expandable to 512GB using an external memory card (uses SIM 2)

Software and Battery

HMD Global is shipping the Nokia 2.3 with Android 9 Pie OS but that shouldn’t be a problem. All Nokia devices come with a guaranteed 2 years OS Upgrade and 3 years monthly security update.

So this phone will get Android 10 and Android 11 (if any). Being an Android One gadget, users will get a pure Android experience as there is no bloatware on the device.

The phone is also shipped with a 4000mAh battery but no mention of fast charge
