Nokia C1 Plus is a cheap € 69 Android Go device

HMD Global has announced yet another cheap Android Go smartphone in the form of the Nokia C1 Plus, offering people another phone option accessible only for 4G in late 2020 and early 2021.

As an alternative to the wave of Nokia phones powered by KaiOS, the Nokia C1 Plus is a great Android Go smartphone for those who want what will probably be a “modest” everyday experience.

Let’s talk about the specifications and hardware for a moment, because the 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 cutout at all, which means considerable upper and lower frames on the chassis.

Inside, the Nokia C1 Plus uses an unspecified 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and includes 16 GB of internal storage, with included microSD card expansion support. The device continues to run on a modest 2,500 mAh battery that is disappointingly charged via microUSB at 5W speeds. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, but there’s no fingerprint scanner on this cheap smartphone.

Like almost all other smartphones, you have some hardware to deal with. In the back, there is a 5 megapixel solo camera with LED flash, while the selfie camera 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 colleagues, or not.

Nokia C1 Plus will come with the pre-installed Android 10 version of Android Go, but is likely to be upgraded to Android 11 when available. You will be able to pick it up in red or blue for just EUR 69 in some European markets. Information on wider global availability was not shared.
