HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has today announced that the Nokia 3.2 is now available as from Ksh13,999. The Nokia 3.2 combines the biggest HD+ display for the price with our signature two-day battery life and is powered by the latest Android 9 Pie experience.
“We know how important a great display and two-day battery life is to many smartphone users, so we made sure we delivered on these qualities for the Nokia 3.2. We have put everything you expect from the latest smartphone into an affordable package, from biometric face unlock and AI-powered features like Adaptive Battery to a more modern and personal way to interact with your smartphone through the dedicated Google Assistant button.” commented Gopher Ogembo , Senior business manager at Speaking during the announcement.
Taking a holistic view of battery life, Nokia 3.2 combines a larger battery than many premium smartphones with efficient hardware and software ingenuity. To squeeze every last drop out of the huge battery, the Adaptive Battery feature introduced in Android 9 Pie manages background applications using AI, learning from user behaviour to know when to throttle or increase power to specific apps or processes. It even has enough power to go two days with the largest display we’ve ever put in a smartphone. The Nokia 3.2 features a 6.26” HD+ display
The Nokia 3.2 will get through tasks with ease and is among the first Nokia smartphones to include a notification light – the power button comes to life to alert you of notifications so you know when to unlock your phone and check your apps.
Premiering the Google Assistant button, press once for instant access to the Google Assistant to get directions, make calls, listen to music and get answers to your questions faster. You can double press to receive a visual overview of your day from the Assistant with intelligent suggestions and personalised information, including transport info, bills that need paying and what you have in your calendar to make sure you never miss a meeting again. By long pressing the button, you will activate a walkie-talkie mode, which lets the Google Assistant listen to you until you release it for long sentence queries.
Many of the premium features on the Nokia 3.2 are powered by AI, including face unlock to give you a quick, handsfree way to unlock your smartphone or exclusive Google Assistant actions to open apps quicker, including launching the camera app. The Nokia 3.2 also lets you access your Google Assistant without unlocking your phone, after opting-in through your settings, you’ll be able to perform basic tasks like setting a timer, scheduling reminders, playing music or asking it questions.
The Nokia 3.2 launches with Android 9 Pie out of the box. Nokia smartphones with Android One offer great storage and battery life right out of the box and come with three years of monthly security patches and two major OS updates.
Android 9 Pie includes AI-powered features to make your device smarter, faster and adapt to your behaviour as you use it, so your smartphone experience gets better with time. The Adaptive Battery feature limits battery usage from apps you don’t use often, and App Actions predicts what you’re about to do so you can get to your next action quickly.
