HMD Global has today launched a new entry-level smartphone, the Nokia C3. Succeeding the Nokia C2 which was announced in March 2020, the Smartphone packs slight upgrades and a fingerprint sensor as the differenciators from its predecessors.
Being a 2020 release, the Nokia C3 ships Android 10 straight out the box, but brings to play a micro-USB port with 5W charging compatibility that supports a 3040mAh battery.
If compared to the Nokia C1 and C2 Smartphones, the C3 differs in battery capacity, chipset clock rate, camera, RAM, and Internal Storage. But if compared to entry-level smartphones like Itel’s P36, the C3 deserves to be a yesterday release as per the specs sheet
Nokia C3 Specifications
|Operatign system||Android 10|
|Processor||Quad Core 1.6GHz Unisoc Chipset|
|Display||5.99-inch HD+ Screen w/ 18:9 aspect ratio|
|Storage||3GB RAM + 32GB ROM expandable to 400GB|
|Available Colors||Nordic Blue, Gold Sand|
|Price||$100 (approx. UGX 370,000)|
Given the fact that Nokia’s entry-level releases are tagged to attractive price ranges, we expect the C3 to be priced at around UGX 365,000 on Jumia if compared to the C2 priced at 329,000.
With Global orders starting on August 13th 2020, the Nokia C3 will be available in several markets soon. But by the look of things, the C3 is a 2018-style Smartphone.
No Display Notch, high top and bottom bezels, Micro USB port, and a Small Screen size (5.99Inch). All these downvote the Nokia C3 being a 2020 release. Its only upvote is the fact that it has a dedicated Google Assistant button which has not been a thing in the budget-friendly sphere.
