Just days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC), Nokia launched the new Nokia C02, which is one of the cheapest smartphones the company makes.

The new Nokia C02 has a couple of outdated specs we haven’t seen in a while. For one, it only has an FWVGA+ resolution screen, but we do appreciate its 5.45-inch size for those who want a small device.


Under the hood, it’s powered by an unnamed quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, paired with only 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

To ensure it runs on the best possible performance, it ships with Android 12 Go edition with two years of security patches.


It only has a 3,000mAh battery due to its small size and is paired with a 5W microUSB charger. There’s a 2-megapixel camera for selfies, while on the back is a 5-megapixel main shooter with a polycarbonate frame with nano-texture.

As a bonus, the back panel is removable so you can replace the battery. It also managed to have an IP52 rating for being splashproof.


The Nokia C02 comes in Dark Cyan and Charcoal with the price and availability yet to be announced.
