For its opening salvo in 2020, HMD Global is offering a budget smartphone to the price-sensitive Philippine market.
Retailing at P5,990 (around $118), the Nokia 2.3 is available starting today, January 25, at all Nokia stores and authorized dealers nationwide. You can also buy the handset online — on Lazada, Shopee, MX Online, and Argomall. Every purchase comes with a free Bluetooth speaker and case.

There are several features that HMD Global is homing in on, and one of them is the AI dual rear camera. The Nokia 2.3 comes with a 13-megapixel main sensor paired with a 2-megapixel one for depth sensing or for pictures that blur the background and make the subject stand out.
There’s also Recommended Shot, a feature that automatically takes alternate photos before and after you press the shutter key, so the phone can suggest which among the shots is the best one.
With the device’s 4,000mAh battery, you should easily get up to two days of battery life. The screen is big at 6.2 inches. You can listen to FM radio without a data connection. There’s a 3.5mm audio jack. The unit doesn’t look like a budget phone. And of course, being an Android One handset, the Nokia 2.3 will receive Android OS upgrades for two years and monthly security updates for three years.
