Nokia smartphones enjoy a special place in the smartphone industry due to the unparalleled trust and confidence the consumers have in them. In fact, a Counterpoint research report from just a couple of months back has proved that Nokia phones lead the Trust Rankings based on software, security updates and build quality. Now, the Nokia 2.4 is set to make its debut in India and already looks set to give a tough time to the competitors. It’s an all-rounder that’s meant for those who are seeking a premium smartphone experience at a value-for-money price point. So, let’s take a deeper look at what the new Nokia 2.4 brings to the table for smartphone buyers in India.

Bang for the buck features

This new device has been built keeping in mind the daily requirements of modern-day life. Correspondingly, the company has made no compromise in terms of essential features, making the Nokia 2.4 an ideal choice for someone with a versatile lifestyle. Be it the phone’s battery life, long-term software support, camera experience or performance, HMD Global has paid utmost attention to all the details, ensuring buyers opting for the handset have a satisfying end-user experience. Add to that the phone’s spectacular design and its robust build quality and the new Nokia 2.4 will feel as reliable on the outside as it is on the inside.

Dual cameras with AI brilliance

The Nokia 2.4 will indeed impress you with its dual camera setup comprising a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor, meant to assist in the phone’s incredible portrait mode. The magic of the photography experience of this handset rests in its HDR tuning that breathes new life into images that are clicked during the daylight. The camera is able to expertly differentiate the shadows and highlights. It, moreover, identifies minute details in the shadows and highlights to create true-to-life photographs that will keep your eyes glued to the screen. The camera software of the Nokia 2.4 has also been tailored to capture natural colours, thereby making your images look more accurate and authentic.

Furthermore, buyers opting for the phone need not worry about night-time photography either. The Nokia 2.4 stacks images with different exposures and fuses them together with its advanced algorithm to greatly enhance the light available in a scene. As a result, night owls using the Nokia 2.4 can capture some incredibly drool-worthy low-light photographs. The Night Mode guarantees the capture of vibrant details in night-time photographs.

Thanks to the dual camera nature of the Nokia 2.4, it is able to render a truly magnificent Portrait Mode. With the help of the depth sensor, the camera is able to create a detailed outline of the subjects and separate them from the background to render professional-grade portrait shots with shallow depths of the field. That said, thanks to the new Portrait Editor that has gone into the device, you can even edit your portrait shots after they’ve been captured. This includes changing the focus as well, which is an excellent feature to have on a device. Furthermore, the Nokia 2.4 ships with a 5MP camera that’s nestled inside a tiny notch on the front surface, which too can capture remarkable selfies.

Top-notch 2-day battery life

Nokia 2.4 has a 4,500mAh power pack that can easily deliver 2-day battery life to solve all your battery woes. Even with very heavy usage, you can rest assured that you will never run out of the juice in the middle of the day. Interestingly, it’s not just the capacious battery that lends the Nokia 2.4 excellent battery life. In fact, the handset’s AI-assisted Adaptive Battery feature helps in this department as well, by optimizing the power consumption according to your usage. In a nutshell, the phone prioritizes power for the apps you use most, allowing you to keep using them throughout the day.

Timeless design

Staying true to the company’s roots, Nokia 2.4 has a Nordic-inspired look. The phone’s polycarbonate shell is complemented brilliantly by a metal chassis. Plus, the shell has been given a 3D Nano-textured finish that lets you hold it securely and comfortably in your hands. The metal-polycarbonate combination works great for Nokia’s reputation of delivering robust and durable phones, ensuring that you don’t need to worry small falls and scratches. The smartphone comes in three gorgeous colour options to choose from: Charcoal, Dusk, and Fjord.

Gorgeous display

A 6.5-inch display goes on the Nokia 2.4. It’s an HD+ screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio that gives users an immersive viewing experience no matter what it is they are watching. Viewing videos and playing games is a supremely enjoyable experience thanks to this highly impressive display.

Future-ready for timely Android updates

The best part of modern Nokia smartphones is their adherence to the Android upgrade cycle. No sooner is the update made available by Google than it’s available for download on Nokia smartphones. The Nokia 2.4 builds up on the same legacy and the handset will give users 2 years of main Android updates and 3 years of security updates. On top of that, seeing how the Nokia 2.4 falls under Google’s Android One program, the handset is free of bloatware and needless interface tweaks that bog down the user experience. Google Assistant is one more attraction, with the phone offering a special button dedicated for the same. The smart digital assistant allows you to get everything done with voice commands, making it one of the most exciting aspects of an Android device.
