The Nokia 2.3 can now be ordered in the United States
The Nokia 2.3 has been launched in the United States. This cost-effective device has a MediaTek Helio A22 processor and a rear panel made of "Nano-Textured polymer" rather than the normally ubiquitous glass or shiny plastic. However, it may be a worthwhile contender as a budget phone in 2020 all the same.
This successor to the 2.2 is also equipped with AI that has been tasked with conserving its 4000mAh battery. It also offers biometrics in the form of Face Unlock, although it lacks a fingerprint sensor. However, one of the 2.3's most potentially attractive features is its eligibility for the Android One program.
Then again, HMD Global has not specifically mentioned this in relation to the 2.3's US units. However, the OEM has pledged that they will be assured of Android updates for 2 years, and of regular security patch upgrades for a year thereafter. The 2.3 does not yet have the latest version of this OS, although its maker asserts that it is "Android 10 ready".
This new phone is now up for pre-order through Best Buy from today (January 21, 2020), and will appear in the same capacity on Amazon in 1 week. The Nokia 2.3's price has been set at US$129, for which it comes in a choice of Charcoal or Sand colorways.
