HMD Global has teased the launch of two smartphones on November 26 on social media, and based on the visuals in the 14-second teaser, it seems like the Nokia 2.4 and the Nokia 3.4, that launched in Europe in September. The teaser, however doesn’t reveal the name just yet.
The teaser video traces the outline of two smartphones, especially the camera modules. The first smartphone is shown sporting a circular triple camera module, while the second outline has a vertically aligned dual camera stack. A quick Google Search and some common sense identified them to be the Nokia 3.4 and the Nokia 2.4 respectively. These are the only two smartphones from HMD’s 2020 portfolio that have not been launched in India, except for the Nokia 8.3 5G which is unlikely to be available in the 4G-only Indian market anytime soon.
Both smartphones are strictly entry-level, according to the spec-sheet. The Nokia 3.4 sports the modern punch-hole camera display while the Nokia 2.4 sticks to a waterdrop notch. The Nokia 3.4 runs on the Snapdragon 460 while the Nokia 2.4 gets a rusty-old MediaTek Helio P22 SoC under the hood.
In Europe, the Nokia 3.4 is available in three variants — 3+32GB, 3+64GB and 4+64GB. On the other hand, the Nokia 2.4 is available in two variants — 2+32GB, 3+64GB. It remains to be seen if there will be any changes to the Indian variants in this regard.
Both smartphones run on Google’s Android One platform offering seamless security updates and two years of feature updates. There’s also no ads and no bloatware. The Nokia 3.4 and 2.4 run on Android 10 out of the box.
As for the cameras, both smartphones come with a 13MP primary camera and 5MP depth sensors, but the Nokia 3.4 gets an additional 5MP ultrawide lens. On the front, the Nokia 3.4 sports an 8MP selfie shooter while the Nokia 2.4 comes with a 5MP selfie camera.
The Nokia 3.4 starts at EUR 159 (roughly Rs 14,000) while the Nokia 2.4 starts at EUR 119 (roughly Rs 10,500). In India, Nokia could try to undercut its rival with aggressive pricing, but with the present market conditions prevailing, it’s likely not going to be anything significant.
