The Nokia C1 Plus is a dirt cheap Android Go device for 69 euros

HMD Global has announced another dirt cheap Android Go smartphone, the Nokia C1 Plus, which will give users another affordable option for 4G phones only in late 2020 and early 2021.

As an alternative to Nokia with numerous feature phones from KaiOS, the Nokia C1 Plus is a great Android Go smartphone for those who want a “modest” everyday experience.

Let’s talk briefly about the specs and hardware, since the Nokia C1 Plus has a 5.45-inch HD + LCD display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and a resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels. There is no display cutout at all, which means that the top and bottom bezels of the case are very large.

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

As with almost every other smartphone, there is camera hardware here too. On the back is a solo 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, while the selfie camera is rated at 5-megapixels. We’re not entirely sure whether this device will have Google Camera Go pre-installed like some of its colleagues or not.

The Nokia C1 Plus comes with the Android 10 preinstalled variant of Android Go, but will likely be updated to the Android 11 build when it becomes available. You can pick it up in red or blue in selected markets across Europe for just € 69. No information was exchanged on broader global availability.
