Nokia has entered the ultra-low-priced smartphone segment in India with its new C01 Plus handset. Sporting an Rs. 5,999 price tag, the new 4G-ready C01 Plus comes with a 5.45-inch HD+ display while on the other side of it lies an octa-core 1.6 GHz processor. The phone offers 16 GB of storage and 2 GB of memory. It runs Android 11 Go Edition and features a 5 MP rear cam and 2 MP front shooter. HMD Global who is the current brand licensee of Nokia further added the phone will get security updates for two years post-launch.
Nokia C01 Plus specs in details
The 5.45-inch HD+ display of the Nokia C01 Plus is lit up by 720 x 1,440 pixels and has an 18:9 aspect ratio. The 16 GB of native storage onboard is further expandable to 128 GB via microSD cards. Then there is 2 GB of RAM that works in tandem with the 1.6 GHz octa-core Unisoc SC9863a processor that makes up the core of the smartphone.
A 5 MP HDR camera can be found on the rear while the front gets a 2 MP selfie shooter. Interestingly, both the cameras are assisted by an LED flash, something that is quite a novelty in the entry-level budget segment. The selfie also powers the face unlock feature as well. Further, the 3000 mAh battery which Nokia said can provide for day-long usage is user-removable as well.
The sensors the phone comes with include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. The phone sports a polycarbonate build that is reinforced by a metal chassis on the inside.
