The Android 10 update brings a host of new features to the Nokia 2.3, including the dark mode, smart reply, gesture navigation, better privacy controls, a focus mode, and the Family Link tool in the Digital Wellbeing settings. The Focus Mode, especially, will be available in beta to the users who will be able to "block out distracting apps" while concentrating on the apps that need attention.

Any Nokia 2.3 unit purchased on or after April 1, 2020, will be eligible for replacement in cases of hardware or software malfunctions. The replacement guarantee was earlier applicable to Nokia 2.3 units that were bought on or before March 31, 2020. Nokia 2.3 comes with specifications such as Android One-based Android 9 Pie software, a MediaTek Helio A22 processor, and a 6.2-inch HD+ LCD notched display. Its price was also increased after the government introduce GST hikes. The Nokia 2.3 now sells for Rs 7,585 in India.
