HMD Global introduced the Nokia C1 Plus today through its official website hmdglobal.com. The new smartphone is trying to attract especially undemanding users who do not want to spend much on a new smartphone. In essence, this is an improved version of the C1 model introduced last year.
Like its predecessor, the Nokia C1 Plus offers a 5.45-inch IPS LCD, 197 PPI (pixels per inch) display with HD+ resolution and classic frames that with the manufacturer’s logo at the bottom and a 5MPx selfie camera. Sadly, the same 5MPx camera can also be found on the back, although this time, it has gotten a LED light next to it.
The new Nokia C1 Plus gets 4-quad 1,4Ghz processor and 1GB RAM, which should be enough for simple tasks. The 16GB internal storage will be sufficient for few hundreds of photos and is extendable by up to 128GB thanks to its MicroSD slot.
The phone features a 3.5mm headphones jack and FM radio receiver and is capable of working under 4G coverage.
Nokia C1 Plus will come in two colour variants: blue and red and a removable 2500 mAh battery, rechargeable by MicroUSB cable.
The dimensions are 149.1 × 71.2 × 8.75 mm with a pleasant weight of 146 grams. The main attraction to this device probably remains the price, which starts at very welcoming €69/£63 and will come to the sale before the end of the year 2020.
As stated earlier on, the phone is focused on undemanding consumers, with simple needs as calling, texting or simple social media browsing or to those who need a second phone for work or whatever other reason. It cannot be expected to perform well with some new games or multitasking as the 1GB RAM won’t simply be enough to carry the system smoothly.
