Nokia 2.2: Get ahead with advanced AI features and the latest Android

The first Nokia 2 series smartphone to be part of the Android One programme, the Nokia 2.2 delivers sophisticated AI-powered low-light imaging and Google Assistant at the press of a button, all at a truly astonishing price. It gives you the latest full Android experience on a modern 5.7-inch screen with a discreet selfie-notch. The Nokia 2.2 is Android Q ready and will receive two years of OS upgrades and three years of monthly security updates, ensuring access to all the latest innovations from Android.

Bringing sophisticated AI-powered low light image fusion, the Nokia 2.2 can take detailed photos even in tricky low-light conditions with its camera that snaps multiple images simultaneously through advanced algorithms to create a single image with more light, greater detail and less noise. HDR photography also allows the Nokia 2.2 to capture vivid colours with greater dynamic range in every shot.

The Nokia 2.2 is one of the first phones in its category to come with a biometric face-unlock feature, enabling you to unlock your phone effortlessly. Its Google Lens lets you search what you see—simply point the camera lens at your product of interest to know how you can buy it or point the lens at an album artwork to discover new music and stream via music services such as Spotify.

Nokia 3.2: View more, do more

The Nokia 3.2 combines the biggest HD+ display with our signature two-day battery life powered by the latest Android 9 Pie experience.

Nokia 3.2 combines a larger battery than many premium smartphones with efficient hardware and software ingenuity. It has an Adaptive Battery feature introduced in Android 9 Pie that manages background applications using AI, learning from user behaviour to know when to throttle or increase power for specific apps or processes. It also features an impressive 6.26” HD+ display so you’ll never struggle to watch your favourite movies, TV shows and streams on screen.

Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 429 mobile platform and available with up to 3GB RAM/32GB ROM configuration, the Nokia 3.2 will get through tasks with ease. It is also among the first Nokia smartphones to include a notification light in which the power button comes to life to alert you of notifications so you know when to unlock your phone and check your apps.

Nokia 8.1: Elevate the value flagship experience

As the newest addition to Nokia mobile’s value flagship range and the first Nokia smartphone to receive Android Q update, the Nokia 8.1 punches above its weight with extraordinary imaging achieved by its highly sensitive, industry-leading camera sensor, ZEISS Optics and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). It delivers enhanced viewing experience even in bright sunlight with its Proprietary PureDisplay screen technology with HDR 10 support along with highly accurate colour reproduction whilst the chipset ensures smooth performance for up to two days on a single charge.

The Nokia 8.1’s great low-light imaging performance comes from its 12MP main camera with ZEISS Optics that has an industry-leading 1/2.55=inch super-sensitive sensor with large 1.4 micron pixels for precise light capture, delivering exceptionally detailed images. With its combination of Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) technology and super-fast autofocus, the Nokia 8.1 doesn’t let shaky hands stop you from capturing crisp images and videos.

The Nokia 8.1 is the second Nokia smartphone to come with PureDisplay screen technology for an enhanced viewing experience. Visuals are taken to another level with HDR 10, which delivers higher contrast, great clarity and over a billion individual colours to ensure images remain accurate whether you’re in a dark room or out in bright sunlight.

The Nokia 8.1 lets you effortlessly enjoy up to two days on a single charge. Long-lasting power combined with the Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform means the Nokia 8.1 can get through any task without breaking a sweat, with 35 percent faster graphics processing and 20 percent higher performance than the previous generation. It also has twice the AI power, thanks to a multi-core AI engine that employs a brand-new architecture for efficient performance. Its Qualcomm® aptX™ audio support also means music lovers can enjoy high-quality sound wirelessly over Bluetooth.

The Nokia 2.2, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 8.1 come with Android 9 Pie out of the box and are all Android Q ready. These Nokia smartphones also join the comprehensive lineup of the Android One family, which means they deliver the latest Android innovations and software experiences.
