HMD Global has just announced the latest addition to the Nokia entry-level smartphone offerings – the Nokia C3. No, this isn’t the C3 that was released in 2010 with a QWERTY keyboard, although wouldn’t that be an awesome throwback.
The Nokia C3 is built around a 5.99-inch HD+ display with the rest of its body made up of polycarbonate.
Under the hood, the device has an octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz which is expected to be part of the Unisoc SC9863 SoC. It also has 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via a microSD slot.
The Nokia C3 has two cameras – a 5MP camera on the front and an 8MP lens on the back along with its LED flash and a fingerprint reader.
It gets its juice from a 3040mAh battery that charges through a microUSB port with support to up to 5W fast charging. In addition, the phone has an FM Radio, 3.5mm headphone jack, Xpress Key for easily opening apps, and runs on Android 10 out of the box.
The Nokia C3 is available in two colors in China for CNY 699, with a pre-order price of CNY 669. It will officially be available in the market starting August 13.
