The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus around the world has led to the cancellation of events. However, companies are still unveiling new devices. Nokia has now quietly unveiled the Nokia C2, a budget Android Go-powered phone.
The Nokia C2 is an affordable phone with modest specifications. It has a 5.7-inch HD+ display with no notch or cutout. Using a quad-core UniSoc chipset, the device offers you 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This internal storage is expandable by up to 64GB via a microSD card.
The Nokia C2 gets juice from a 2,800mAh removable battery. Even though Europe is moving to have all phones use the same charging cable, the device still uses the outdated micro-USB.
On the rear, the Nokia C2 sports a 5MP camera with LED flash. Sitting on the front of the device is another 5MP camera for selfies. These are just basic camera specs, to say the least.
Interestingly, the Nokia C2 has a dedicated Google Assistant button. This button offers quick access to voice search and commanding the Assistant.
The Nokia C2 will come with the Android Pie version of Android Go. Android Go is the stripped-back OS designed for emerging markets. The device will be available in Black and Cyan color options.
We do not yet know how much exactly the Nokia C2 will sell for. However, given its modest specs, we do not expect the price to be on the high side.
