HMD Global’s latest offerings for 2022 are finally here. The Nokia C21 and Nokia C21 Plus smartphones have made it to the market as the new budget models. Let’s check out the new handsets in detail!
Nokia C21 Specifications
The Nokia C21 features a 6.517-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720 x 1,600 of pixels. For software, it boosts Android 11 (Go edition) out of the box. FYI, this version is said to be 20% faster than its predecessor, the Android 10 Go Edition.
Under the hood, it runs an octa-core processor based on Unisoc SC9863A SoC paired with 2GB and 3GB RAM options. The device arrives in a 32 GB storage configuration. Also, it packs a 3,000 mAh battery that keeps the system working.
In optics, Nokia C21 equips an 8 MP rear camera alongside a fixed focus lens. On the other side, there’s a 5 MP selfie camera sensor at the front. Both the units offer an LED flash as well. In addition, it holds a fingerprint sensor on the backside.
The connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB (with OTG), and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light, and a proximity sensor.

For shooting, the smartphone houses a dual rear camera consisting of a 2 MP depth sensor alongside a 13 MP primary unit with an autofocus lens. Furthermore, the device draws its juices from a 4,000mAh battery. Also, it is IP52-certified, making it splash-resistant.
