Nokia 2.4 launched in India; promises 2 years of Android OS updates and 2-day battery life
HMD Global launched the budget Nokia 2.4 phone in India on Thursday at a recommended best buy price of Rs 10,399. this is often for the model with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Nokia 2.4 are going to be available online exclusively on Nokia.com/phones starting November 26 and on Amazon and Flipkart, and at leading shops across India starting December 4.
The Nokia 2.4 doesn’t have a “killer” spec-sheet with rival phones from Xiaomi and Realme offering tonnes of features at round the Rs 10,000 price point. Rather, it focuses on just the fundamentals — and most definitely, the Nokia name — to form a selling.
The Nokia 2.4’s main USP is its pure, secure and up-to-date Android software, consistent with HMD Global, though that last bit is subject to debate. The Nokia 2.4 is an Android One phone meaning it’s supported near stock Android — this is often Android 10 and not Android 11 — with none noticeable pre-installed bloatware. Moreover, it comes with the promise of two years of guaranteed Android OS updates. The phone also will be eligible for 3 years of security updates.
The other big highlight of the Nokia 2.4 is claimed to be its 2-day battery life. The phone features a sizeable 4,500mAh battery though it still charges over the ageing micro-USB standard — and there’s no fast charging.
Rest of the hardware is entry-level at the best . The Nokia 2.4 has a 6.5-inch 720p+ display with a waterdrop-style notch and a facet ratio of 20:9. there’s no mention of any protective coating or splash resistance. Under the hood, the phone features a MediaTek Helio P22 processor paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. Storage is expandable by up to 512GB via a micro-SD card slot. The Nokia 2.4 may be a dual-SIM phone with 4G LTE connectivity and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics.
For photography, the phone has dual rear cameras consisting of a 13MP main and another 2MP dedicated camera . On the front, the Nokia 2.4 features a 5MP camera.
The Nokia 2.4 features a textured plastic back and can are available three colourways, Dusk, Fjord and Charcoal.
