HMD Global, which manufactures and sells Nokia-branded phones, has unveiled a Nokia 2.4 budget phone in the country as the year draws to a close.
The Rs 10,399 dual-configuration rear camera device aims to create effects in the aggressive price segment that dominates between Samsung, Xiaomi and Realme.
Given that they are the devices that offer the fastest software and security updates with the bulk of the portfolio recommended to companies, let’s see if the device can mark its presence among ordinary users in the country.
The Nokia 2.4 comes with a single 3GB RAM / 64GB configuration variant in a variety of sunset color options like Dusk, Fjord and Charcoal.
Equipped with a 4,500mAh battery, the phone supports the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC octa-core chipset.
If we talk about the overall design, weight and appearance, Nokia 2.4 looks impressive.
The phone weighs 189 grams, is lightweight to carry and easy to use.
The phone has a dual rear camera configuration with a 13MP primary sensor with f / 2.2 lens and a 2MP depth sensor along with an LED flash.
The budget phone has some high-end features, including AI camera Night and Portrait modes.
The images were sharp and colorful in the daylight.
However, in low light conditions and indoors, the result was not mediocre. The performance of the camera was good in the night movies.
On the back, the Nokia logo is placed vertically in the center. At the back is a dedicated space for the fingerprint sensor, which worked well in normal use.
While it has a power button on the right edge of the phone and volume balances, there’s a SIM and microSD card tray on the left side of the device with the Google search key, which is the only thing.
The user can find a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top of the device.
The smartphone has a 6.5-inch HD + (720 × 1,600 pixels) screen with a 20: 9 aspect ratio at the top.
On the front, the device has a tear drop at the top of the screen, which stores a 5MP selfie camera. The brightness of the screen worked well in both low and harsh light conditions.
The selfie camera took basic photos in both indoor and outdoor situations and the images lacked a bit of sharpness.
The Nokia 2.4T MediaTek Helio P22 SoC processor is also equipped with Android 11 and comes with Android 10.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS / A-GPS, NFC, FM radio and Micro-USB.
While several apps on social media and streaming content on Netflix and Youtube were used for long hours, the device worked well.
While playing video games in basic settings, the device was not delayed and did a good job as a budget phone.
The 4,500mAh battery allows the device to operate on a single charge for almost two days. The phone does not heat up even after charging for long hours.
Conclusion: Priced at Rs 10,399, this device can be a good alternative for those who do not want to buy a Chinese smartphone.
This is the best chance for Nokia fans to start the year 2021.
