After much of teasers, HMD Global has launched its latest budget Android One smartphone – Nokia 2.1 in India. The main highlight of the smartphone is the fact that it hits the lower-budget end users, powered by decent hardware and features dual rear cameras.
Nokia 2.3: Design And Display
The Nokia 2.3 features 3D nano-textured cover with dimensions: 157.69 x 75.41 x 8.68mm and weight: 183g. According to the company “Advanced structural engineering made it possible to integrate the dual camera and flash into the rear of the phone without a camera bump. Inner high-precision diecast aluminum chassis makes the structure solid and rigid protecting all the components inside.”
Coming to the display, the device packs in a 6.2-inch (720 x 1520 pixels) HD+ 19:9 aspect ratio 2.5D curved glass display. That said, the device comes in Cyan Green, Sand and Charcoal color options to choose from.
Nokia 2.3: Camera
The latest budget smartphone from Nokia sports dual rear cameras – a 13-megapixel rear camera with AI low-light feature, HDR, and a secondary 2-megapixel depth-sensing camera for Portrait Mode.
Furthermore, the phone comes with a ‘Recommended Shot’ feature that automatically captures alternate images before and after the shutter button is pressed and suggests the best one. At the front, it has a 5-megapixel camera with support for Face Unlock.
