HMD Global hasn’t been stealing much attention lately, the company did not launch many appealing devices this year. Instead, it has been releasing a bunch of low-end and cost-effective smartphones. Today, the company has just revealed its new handset Nokia C20 Plus in India. For those unaware, this smartphone was revealed last month in China. It comes with a simple dual-camera setup and an Octa-Core chip from Unisoc. The device also comes with a huge battery and Android 11 Go Edition.
Nokia C20 Plus specifications
The budget Nokia C20 Plus comes to India under INR 10,000 price tag. The handset features a 6.5-inch HD+ display. It’s an LCD screen offering 1,600 x 720 pixels of resolution and a waterdrop notch on the top for the front camera. Under the hood, the smartphone packs a Unisoc SC9863a SoC. This particular processor comes with four high-performance ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 1.6 GHz. There are also four power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz. In addition to the Octa-Core chip, we have 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of Internal Storage. As usual in mid-range smartphones, it offers storage expansion by up to 256 GB. There is also a variant with 2 GB of RAM, but we can’t recommend that in 2021.
In terms of optics, the Nokia C20 Plus offers a dual-camera setup. It comprises a modest 8 MP primary camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. The smartphone also has a 5 MP front camera inside the notch. In terms of connectivity, the device comes with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, and FM Radio. It also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The handset runs Android 11 Go Edition straight out of the box. This is the latest version of the “Lite” OS version provided by Google. As usual, you can also expect many Google Apps to come in their “Go” variations. The lightweight version of these apps will ensure that the device will not be laggy. The handset draws powers from a 4,950 mAh battery and comes with 10W charging. Unfortunately, the device comes with a super-old micro USB port.
