HMD Global, the supplier of Nokia phones in Kenya, on Thursday announced the availability of the Nokia 3.2 in the Kenyan market. Retailing at a Ksh 13,999, the Nokia 3.2 is an addition to the new Nokia smartphone series just after the launch of Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 1 plus.
Speaking during the announcement, Mark Misumi, HMD Business Manager East Africa, hailed the phone saying it has the latest smartphone features.
“Owning an affordable smartphone shouldn’t lock you out of exciting features and the latest trends. 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,” Misumi said.
The smartphone has an adaptive battery feature that manages background applications using Artificial Intelligence (AI), learning from user behaviour to know when to throttle or increase power to specific apps or processes. It also has a two day battery life and a 6.26” HD display.
A new feature that is incorporated in the phone is a notification light power button. The button also serves as the Google Assistant button. Google Assistant is an AI-powered virtual assistant developed by Google that is primarily available on mobile and smart home devices
With just a single press accesses the google assistant that helps in getting directions, making calls, listening to music and getting answers to questions about the phone. 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.
The Nokia 3.2 launches with Android 9 Pie out of the box. It joins the comprehensive line-up of Nokia smartphones in the Android One family, which means it delivers the latest Android innovations and software experiences.
