After launching the Nokia 2.3 in Egypt last week, HMD Global is gearing up to bring the affordable Nokia phone to India. The Finland-based smartphone manufacturer has started teasing the Nokia 2.3 in the country but is yet to reveal the launch date. It is expected that the global variant of the Nokia 2.3 will arrive in India, which means the phone will be powered by MediaTek Helio A22 processor and include dual cameras on the back.
In Egypt, the Nokia 2.3 is priced at 109 euros, which is around Rs 8,300 approximately. HMD Global is yet to reveal the India price of the Nokia 2.3, but it is expected to be an affordable device. With the Nokia 2.3, HMD Global may aim to compete with similar price segment (Rs 8,000) phones from competition like Xiaomi, Realme, among others. It will be interesting to see how HMD Global prices the Nokia 2.3 in India considering the under Rs 10,000 price segment is very competitive in the country.
