HMD Global launched the successor to the Nokia 2.2 — Nokia 2.3 — in Cairo on Thursday. As per the company, this budget-friendly smartphone comes with a “two-day battery life” (4,000 mAh battery). The Android One-based phone is equipped with a dual rear camera setup with a 13 MP primary camera.
The company has not given any India launch date for the smartphone but since Nokia 2.3 is already listed on the Nokia India website, we can expect that the phone might soon debut in India as well. The smartphone listing also reveals that it might be launched at a starting price of Rs 5,999 in India. Although, we are not really sure if this is the official India price.
