Although not so talked about these days, incoming smartphones with Android Go are still quite popular in developing countries. I recall that this is a version of Android designed exclusively for smartphones with extremely modest specifications.
HMD Global has just introduced Nokia C1, its latest entry-level offering, which will come with a special focus on various markets across the continent.
Nokia C1 Specifications
- 5.45 "IPS Display with FWVGA + Resolution
- Quad-core processor (unspecified)
- 1GB of RAM
- 16GB internal memory expandable via microSD card
- 5 megapixel front camera
- 5 megapixel rear camera
- Dual SIM Support
- Headphone audio input and dedicated Google Assistant button
- Support for 3G, bluetooth 4.2, WiFi and GPS
- 2,500mAh battery
- Android Pie (Android Go)
It is true that the Nokia C1 specifications are extremely limited, but this level would be expected for an Android Go smartphone. These smartphones are ideal for developing markets and also in areas where the availability / quality of mobile data is very limited.
In addition, they can also be interesting options as secondary devices or alternatives to situations where you need to have a smartphone that offers incredible autonomy. They are also perfect when you need a device that you won't "cry" if something happens.
With a price of around € 50, you could hardly ask for more with its specifications.
