HMD Global has announced that the Nokia 2.3 is now available in Kenya – making it the first market that the phone is on sale after its global launch in Cairo on 5 December 2019.

“Consumers in Kenya have really appreciated the Nokia 2 family of products. The Nokia 2.3 is a step forward in our promise of offering you an experience that stays fresh longer – giving consumers access to two years of OS upgrades and three years of monthly security updates even in the affordable price tier,” says Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager East Africa at HMD Global.

“On top, it offers industry-leading AI for this segment, large screen and our signature promise of two-day battery life – making it the ideal pick for those who rely on their smartphone as their primary screen.”


The Nokia 2.3 features a large 6.2” HD+ screen and two-day battery life for long-lasting and immersive entertainment. The device is Android 10 ready and will receive guaranteed monthly security updates for three years and OS updates for two years.

The device is equipped with a ‘Portrait Mode’, elevating your subject and subtly blurring the background, resulting in stunning portraits that pop. Simply use Google Photos to adjust the blur after you take the shot.  With a 13MP/2MP dual camera, users can take unique portraits with a variety of exclusive bokeh – or blurred background effects such as Classic, Butterfly, Heart or Star-shaped styles. And feel like a professional by creating eye-catching photos by simply adjusting the focus when editing.

This device also combines advanced image fusion and exposure stacking (taking numerous photos in various lighting settings and blending them together), meaning you can shoot stellar images in vibrant detail, even in low-light conditions.

Featuring a 3D nano-textured cover that sits securely in your hand, this phone has a stunning finish that’s sure to leave a lasting impression. Advanced structural engineering made it possible to integrate the dual camera and flash into the rear of the phone without a camera bump. Inner high-precision diecast aluminium chassis makes the structure solid and rigid protecting all the components inside.

The Nokia 2.3 comes Android 10 ready, meaning guaranteed monthly security updates for three years and OS updates for two years. The latest features of Android 10 will also give fans access to the dark theme to save on power usage and improve visibility, as well as enhanced privacy and more, once updated.

The Nokia 2.3 comes in Cyan Green and Charcoal, Retailing from Kes12,000
