South Africans are focusing on learning during the lockdown, with some perhaps considering impromptu careers in craft brewing and homemade alcohol. As lockdown enters…
Nokia on Monday announced two budget smartphones arriving in South Africa this month, headlined by the Nokia 2.3.
Although the Nokia C1 is a great deal if you’re after a sub-R1000 phone, the Nokia 2.3 is for those wanting a bigger screen, battery, and quicker chipset.
For R1999, Nokia’s giving consumers a 6.2-inch display with 1520×720 resolution.
There’s 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, and a Mediatek Helio A22 at its heart. A microSD card slot is also included.
At the rear, the Nokia 2.3 boasts a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP depth sensor for portraits and bokeh. A 5MP selfie camera also features.
The biggest feature of the device is a 4000mAh battery, which should push this phone to two days per charge. That’s a good thing too, because no fast charging tech is included.
Nevertheless, you’re also getting 4G support, Bluetooth, A-GPS, and FM radio support.
The phone will be available in South Africa in cyan green and charcoal.
