The Nordic firm has presented a new mobile, which recovers one of the denominations of its old ranges, but now arrives with a totally different look. This is the new Nokia C1, a phone that could be understood as the new generation of Nokia 1, although it comes with a series of features.
HMD Global is achieving its best market shares in the low ranges, highlighting its featured phones that pull nostalgia. This combination is what they wanted to repeat with the Nokia C1, a device that offers basic smartphone functions at an affordable price.
Nokia sets the new floor of its catalog with the Nokia C1, which in addition to incorporating Android Go mounts a series of very basic features. And maybe that is demonstrated by a 1.3GHz quad-core brain, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD that only reaches the extra 64GB.
