What you need to know
- HMD Global has opened pre-sales for the Nokia 2.3 in the U.S. on Amazon.
- The new handset will set you back $129.
- Like the Best Buy release before it, It ships in only two colors, ditching HMD's Cyan Green for just Sand and Charcoal shades.
After launching exclusively on Best Buy last month, the Nokia 2.3 has now landed on Amazon, available for pre-order towards the 9th of February for the same relatively inexpensive $129.
For the price, you're getting a pretty decently specced handset. You'll see a 6.2-inch HD+ screen with a small waterdrop notch, face unlock powered by the 5MP front-facing camera, a dual-camera at the rear for portraits, and a Google Assistant button for those who want quick and easy access to the service.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global said:
The Nokia 2.3 won't replace your Pixel 3a or Moto G, it's aimed a bit lower than that. For people who just want a solid Android experience and don't care too much about specs and having the best photos, HMD's a tempting option.
Another pretty Nokia
Petite and pretty
Despite the missing Cyan Green, the Sand and Charcoal colors of the Nokia 2.3 are still visually arresting. It may not have all the fancy specs, but all-day battery life and Android One are still compelling for starter users.
Can't knock it for the price.
For a super economy model this phone is decently speced. Glad to see Android at the point where even lowest tier phones offer a good Android experience. I think I would choose the charcoal color.
