Nokia releases stock Android phone in USA

Nokia 2.3 hits the market with a price tag of just $130 USD. The latest smartphone from the veteran brand seems to give quite a competition for its rivals by pricing it in a relatively affordable bracket for its set of specifications.

For the past few years, the smartphone brand HMD Global is behind Nokia’s releases. The company is striving to bring the old-brand back to its former glory and over the last few years, Nokia’s global reputation for bringing high-quality, low-cost Android smartphones has skyrocketed.

The latest Nokia 2.3 was first introduced by the company last year during its Euro release and now they’re simply making the same device available in the United States. It’s quite a wonder when you think that the brand releases a phone for just $129 when brands like Samsung and Apple have upped their prices to $1k.

The latest phone is packed with Android 9 and is also part of the Android One program. The phone also has GSM compatibility, meaning it’s primarily custom-built for AT&T and T-Mobile USA users. There’s no NFC, USB-C or fingerprint reader and you’ll have to be satisfied with the IPS LCD tech.

But it has a 6.2-inch display with 1520×720 pixels and a waterdrop notch for its front-facing camera. There’s a power button, volume button, and a dedicated Google Assistant button. Nokia 2.3 has a microSD card slot and about 32 GB of internal data storage and the phone is powered by a 2 GB RAM.
