HMD Cuts the Prices of Nokia 2.2 and all three variants of Nokia 3.2 in Pakistan

Nokia’s parent company HMD announced yesterday that it will be slashing prices on two of its entry-level smartphones in Pakistan – the Nokia 2.2 and Nokia 3.2. Nokia 2.2 offers a modest but dated design and feature set. Nokia 3.2 is a hair better but fails to bring fingerprint support which is a bit of a letdown. Here are their revised prices.

Nokia 2.2 which was originally retailing for 18,700 PKR will now be available for 17,700 PKR after a discount of 1,000 PKR. Released earlier in June this year, the 2.2 sports a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS LCD and a circular notch serving as the housing for its 5-megapixel selfie unit. The design looks fairly dull and lackluster with a plain polycarbonate body and a single camera setup on the rear. 

Unlike most smartphones you’ll find today, its 2,920 mAh battery is user-removable. It is offered in two memory configurations but the variant which received the price drop is the one carrying 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage.

A slight upgrade over its predecessor, the Nokia 3.2 features a 4,000 mAh non-removable battery and a larger 6.26-inch display, albeit with the same TFT screen and HD+ resolution. It also carries over the 5-megapixel selfie shooter from 2.2 and a similar 13-megapixel single-camera module.

It is powered by a Snapdragon 429 processor coupled with three different memory configurations, each with its own revised price tags. The basic 2 GB/16 GB is now offered at 16,500 PKR instead of 18,300 PKR which makes for a discount of 1,800 PKR. 

The other two variants share the 3 GB of RAM but vary in their onboard storage. Where the first version features only 32 GB of native storage, the other comes with 64 GB of ROM. The 32 GB variant is now retailing for 22,500 PKR as opposed to the original price tag of 25,500 PKR, so you’re looking at a discount of 3,000 PKR. The 3.2 model with 64 GB of storage has a new price tag of 23,500 PKR which also amounts to a 3,000 PKR discount.
