Nokia has launched its latest Android One smartphone, the Nokia C1. The phone is targeted for people who are ready to move on from their feature phones to an entry-level smartphone.
Talking of features, the Nokia C1 features a 5.45- inches display with 480 x 960px resolution. The panel here is an IPS one which is protected by the toughened glass to protect the screen from potential scratches. On top of the display, you can see a selfie camera which is a 5MP shooter and an LED flash.
At the back too, there is a 5MP shooter along with an LED flash.
The phone features an average 2,500 mAh battery to power the low power display and it charges over Micro USB port. As for the chipset, it is powered an unknown quad-core CPU. The Nokia C1 comes bearing 1GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage. The storage can further be expanded by a microSD card up to 64GB.
As for other features of the device, you get FM radio and dual SIM support. However, there is no LTE support as the max it goes is 3G. The phone supports WiFi 4 as well.
The major focus of the phone is the fact that it runs on the Android 9 Go edition. The Go apps will help reduce data usage and will take less storage, which is a good thing for entry-level smartphones.
The Nokia C1 has already been launched in Kenya and soon, it may launch in other emerging markets as well. Recently, HMD Global also launched the Nokia 2.3 which is said to arrive in Nepal as well.
