HMD Global has launched a new budget Android Go phone Nokia C1. This is also the first phone from the company that doesn’t come with number based branding. Nokia C1 is a traditional budget phone with the design of the past.

Nokia C1 is for first- time smartphone buyers and will be sold in Africa, the Middle East, and Asian Pacific markets.

Nokia C1 features a 5.45-inch FWVGA+ IPS display and runs on Android 9 Pie (Go edition). It packs quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz but we couldn’t find chipset name. The phone packs 1GB RAM and 16GB storage. There is also a microSD card slot to expand storage up to 64GB.

The phone features a 5-megapixel rear camera with f/2.4 and a 5-megapixels selfie camera on the front. It also has flash on both the rear and the front.

The most disappointing this on this phone is the lack of 4G. It only supports 3G. Other connectivity options are Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, FM Radio, 2.0 MicroUSB.

Nokia C1 packs 2,500mAh removable battery that s sufficient for a full day battery backup.

The device is priced at €50 and will come in red and black colors. The device aims markets that are still operating a 3G network. It will be available ins several developing marketing including African countries (Nigeria, Kenya) and selected MENA markets by December.
