Last year, Nokia Mobile, in an exclusive partnership with Mercado Libre, an e-commerce site, announced the Nokia 23 M, a rebadged Nokia 2.3, in Argentina and Mexico. The company decided to continue the partnership and the naming convention as it launched the Nokia 24 M in Argentina a few days ago. Again, it is the Mercado Libre edition of Nokia 2.4 that came last year in September.
Nokia 24 M boasts of a build made out of a diecast metal chassis and a polycarbonate shell with a 3D nano-textured cover. Alongside the AI face unlock, the device brings a biometric fingerprint sensor in the Nokia 2 series for the first time. The company promises up to two days of battery life on a single charge fuelled by a 4500 mAh AI-assisted Adaptive Battery.
There is night mode and portrait mode as well, and the portrait editor allows you to refocus and edit your pictures whenever you want. Like Nokia 2.4, the Nokia 24 M is another Android One device that runs on Android 10 out of the box with three years of monthly security updates and two years of software upgrades.
However, it is worth noting that the users of Nokia 24 M will technically lose eight months of security updates since the update cycle for Nokia 2.4 started back in September 2020, and Argentina is getting the device just now, as confirmed by Nokia care. Although Nokia 2.4 is receiving Android 11, Argentina was not mentioned in the Wave 1, and the details about Wave 2 are not known yet.
