In 2016, Nokia returned to the smartphone market with Android platform releasing a series of handsets under premium, mid-range and budget segments. Now the company has introduced a new affordable phone, the Nokia C1. It runs on the Android Go platform and offers 3G connectivity.
The phone is very similar to the brand’s first Android Go, the Nokia 1 Plus. It basically differentiates because of the position of the rear sound output, which is now on the left.
At the front, another change is due to the existence of an LED flash to assist in photos taken with the front camera. It has only one rear camera and there are relatively thick edges around its display, which is totally acceptable considering its price.
