HMD Global has announced an additional cheap Android Go mobile phone in the form of Nokia C1 Plus, giving people a still cheap 4G-restricted phone option in late 2020 and early 2021.
As an alternative to the wave of Nokia mobile phones powered by KaiOS, the Nokia C1 Plus is a great Android-powered mobile phone for those who want what will likely mean a “modest” everyday experience.
Let’s talk about specifications and hardware for a moment, as Nokia C1 Plus comes with a 5.45-inch HD + LCD screen with an 18: 9 aspect ratio at a resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels. There is no display at all, which means wide upper and lower grilles on the chassis.
Internally, the Nokia C1 Plus uses an unspecified four-core 1.4 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and includes 16 GB of internal storage with support for microSD card expansion included. The device runs on a modest 2,500mAh battery charged, disappointingly, via microUSB at 5W speeds. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack but no fingerprint scanner on this cheap smartphone.
Like almost all other smartphones, here too you have some camera hardware. Behind is a single 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, while the self-timer is rated at 5 megapixels. We’re not entirely sure if this device will come with Google Camera Go pre-installed like some of its peers or not.
The Nokia C1 Plus will ship with the Android 10 variant of Android Go pre-installed, but will likely be upgraded to the Android 11 version when available. You can pick it up in red or blue for just € 69 in select markets across Europe. No information was shared on wider global availability.
