When it comes to the entry-level market, Nokia is pretty quick at announcing new devices. The company launched the Nokia C2 back in March but now has launched the Nokia C3 in Nepal for a budget-friendly price tag.

Nokia C3 Overview

Design and Display

Nokia C3 Design and Display

Since there hasn’t been a significant between the announcement of these successive devices, the design has remained the same in the C-series. The new C3 looks a lot like its predecessor. The polycarbonate body sports the pill-shaped module on the exact same spot. However, this time around Nokia has included a capacitive fingerprint scanner right below it.

The device comes with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen, which is slightly bigger compared to the C2. However, the 1440 x 720 pixels resolution has remained the same. The top bezel encloses the front camera. This time around, Nokia has removed the branding from the top and pasted it on the bottom chin.

Performance and Camera

RAM has been upgraded to 2GB and so is the internal storage, which is bumped to 16GB. Users can expand it further up to 128GB using a microSD card.

The 8MP rear camera on the back is included inside a pill-shaped camera module, along with an LED flash. On the front, there is a 5MP camera for selfies.
