“The Nokia 3.2 will revolutionise the way you interact with your smartphone, ensuring that your experience keeps getting better,” says Shaun Durandt, general manager of HMD Global Southern Africa. “Premiering the dedicated Google Assistant button, you’ll be able to get directions, make calls, listen to music and get answers to your questions at the touch of a button.”

Industry-leading display, better performance, and two-day battery

Taking a holistic view of battery life, Nokia 3.2 combines a larger battery than many premium smartphones with efficient hardware and software. To squeeze every last drop out of the huge battery, the Adaptive Battery feature introduced in Android 9 Pie 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 has enough power to go two days with one of the largest displays Nokia has put in a smartphone.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 mobile platform and available with 2/16GB memory configuration, the Nokia 3.2  is also among the first Nokia smartphones to include a notification light – the power button alerts users of notifications. Not quite BlackBerry, then.

Personalised experience: learns as it is used

It features the Google Assistant button, pioneered on the Nokia 4.2 (https://gadget.co.za/hmd-global-launches-nokia-4-2/), which enables instant access to the Google Assistant to get directions, make calls, listen to music, and get answers by using one’s voice. One can double press to receive a visual overview of one’s day from Google Assistant with intelligent suggestions and personalised information, including transport info, bills that need paying and calendar updates via voice.

Many of the premium features on the device are powered by AI, including face unlock to give a hands-free way to unlock it, or exclusive Google Assistant actions to open apps quicker. The handset also allows access to Google Assistant without unlocking the phone, after opting-in through settings, and enables basic tasks like setting a timer, scheduling reminders, playing music, or asking it questions.

Pure, secure, and up-to-date, Android 9 Pie reinforced with Android One

It comes pre-installed 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. Nokia smartphones with Android One offer great storage and battery life 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 the device smarter, faster and adapts to how users use it, so their smartphone experiences get better with time, claims HMD. The Adaptive Battery feature limits battery usage from apps one doesn’t use often, and App Actions predicts what one is about to do so the smartphone can react faster.

The Nokia 3.2 will receive three years of monthly security patches and two major OS updates, as guaranteed in the Android One program. In addition, Google Play Protect scans over 50 billion apps per day to prevent malware, making Nokia smartphones among the most secure phones on the market. 

Availability

The Nokia 3.2 with 2GB/16GB RAM/Memory is available in Black, from Vodacom stores and retail partners for an estimated R2,399.00 or R179/month for 24-months.
