HMD Global today opened stateside pre-orders for the Nokia 2.3, its latest value-oriented Android smartphone. American consumers are able to choose between the Charcoal and Sand color options, both of which will begin shipping to customers by early February, the company said.
An exact release date hasn’t been shared as of this writing, however. Regardless of your choice of a finish, the Nokia 2.3 will set you back only $129, which places it firmly in the most affordable category of modern smartphones. You should still expect decent performance from this device, courtesy of the fact that it runs a near-stock version of Android and packs 2GB of RAM, as well as MediaTek’s MT6761 Helio A22 chipset which already proved its worth in this particular segment of the market.
A6.2-inch FHD screen and 32GB of storage space are also on offer, as is a 4,000mAh battery that should keep the lights on for a full day or two on a single charge with no issues. The Nokia 2.3 even sports a decently capable dual-camera setup on the back.
This system utilizes a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2MP shooter used for depth-sensing. The latter should allow for quite remarkable bokeh in portrait photographs.
