New affordable Nokia 2.4 and Nokia 3.4 phones are made to last

HMD Global has two new Nokia phones for your consideration, and although neither will stretch your budget, they will last for some time. The Nokia 2.4 costs $139 or 99 British pounds and the Nokia 3.4 is $179 or 129 British pounds. These affordable phones are designed to last, with a combination of large batteries and guaranteed software updates for the next few years.

Nokia 2.4

Let’s start with the Nokia 2.4, the cheapest of the two. What do you get for just $139? A notched, 6.5-inch touchscreen with a 1600 x 720-pixel resolution on the front, a big 4,500mAh battery inside, and a dual-lens camera on the back. It’s a 13-megapixel main camera paired with a 2MP depth camera, plus artificial intelligence, so it still has a night mode and a portrait mode where you can adjust the background blur level after you’ve taken the photo.

A 5MP camera is found inside the notch, a MediaTek Helio P22 processor powers the phone with either 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, or 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There’s a MicroSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone socket, a dual-SIM slot, NFC, and a fingerprint sensor on the back. Unfortunately, the Nokia 2.4 has a Micro USB for charging, but the battery should last for two days once it’s full, and Nokia’s Adaptive Battery technology prioritizes energy for the apps you use most.

Nokia 3.4

How about the Nokia 3.4? Spend a little more than the Nokia 2.4 and you get a 6.39-inch screen with a 1560 x 720-pixel resolution and a hole-punch in the top left for the 8-megapixel selfie camera. Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage space. The Nokia 3.4 can also be found with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

A triple-lens camera consists of a 13MP main camera, a 5MP wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth lens. Like the Nokia 2.4, it has a night mode and a portrait mode. The battery has a 4,000mAh capacity and is charged using a USB Type-C connector here, plus there’s a MicroSD card slot, a dual SIM card tray, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Both phones come in a series of attractive colors, all inspired by earthy Nordic tones, and have Android 10 onboard. The good news is both are ready for an update to Android 11 and will receive further updates for another two years, plus monthly security updates for three years. These may be cheap phones, but they will remain up to date and useful for several years, making them good value.

The Nokia 2.4 will be released in the U.S. in the next few weeks, where it will be sold through Amazon and Best Buy, with the Nokia 3.4 following before the end of the year. In the U.K., the Nokia 2.4 and Nokia 3.4 will be available in October through Nokia’s own online store and Amazon too.

Fitbit leak reveals the upcoming Sense 2, Inspire 3, and Versa 4
Fitbit Versa 3

Fitbit has a busy slate of fitness wearables lined up for debut, but they have all been unceremoniously leaked, giving us a clear look at their design and color options. Tipster @OnLeaks (via 91Mobiles) has shared official-looking product renders of the Fitbit Versa 4 and the Sense 2 smartwatches. Tagging along the premium smartwatches is the Fitbit Inspire 3 fitness band.

The report doesn’t discuss a tentative launch date, but it likely isn’t too far off. The current-gen Fitbit wearables in the Versa, Sense, and Inspire lineup broke cover in August last year. If Fitbit aims to stick with a yearly refresh cycle — and given the opportune time of the latest leaks — the Sense 2, Versa 4, and Inspire 4 should be hitting the shelves in the coming weeks.

This crazy Nokia phone has a pair of true wireless earbuds inside
The Nokia 5710 XpressAudio phone with its earbuds in the back.

True wireless headphones always come inside a case, so why not make that case a phone? That’s HMD Global’s thinking with the new Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, another retro classic from Nokia’s archive reimagined for today.

This time you get a normal-looking feature phone with a slide-down panel on the back, which when opened reveals a handy pair of true wireless headphones. Just like every other case for true wireless headphones, the earbuds are kept charged when placed inside the phone.

The GT Neo 3T proves just how bad Realme’s phone addiction is
realme gt neo 3t phone addiction backs

Realme has a phone addiction. The time has come for us to sit Realme down and have a serious talk about it together. The release of the Realme GT Neo 3T shows how bad things have gotten. While it's a perfectly acceptable phone, it has no place of its own in Realme's range, makes little sense over other models, and brings nothing new to the table.
Why does the GT Neo 3T exist?
I have used the Realme GT Neo 3T for a couple of days, and if you had asked me what the difference was between it, the GT Neo 3, the GT Neo 2, the GT 2, the GT 2 Pro,  and even the Realme 9 Pro+, I would have paused, said err and umm, and then changed the subject. I couldn’t tell you without looking at the spec sheet or referring only to the different colors and finishes.

Clockwise from top-left: Realme GT Neo 2, Realme GT 2 Pro, Realme 9 Pro+, Realme GT Neo 3T, and Realme GT Neo 3. Andy Boxall/Digital Trends
