Nokia’s budget line gets a new member with the release of the Nokia C3 in China.
The Nokia C3 is powered by a 1.6GHz Unisoc SC9863 octa-core processor, with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card that lets you bump up the internal memory up to 128GB.
There’s a modest 5.99-inch HD+ display on the front, with thick bezels for the 5-megapixel selfie camera on the top, and the Nokia logo on the bottom.
Being an entry-level phone, it only has a single 8-megapixel primary camera. Thankfully, Nokia chooses to keep the fingerprint scanner. But unlike most budget phones that tried to compensate with their large 4,000mAh battery, this one only has a 3,040mAh capacity. Nokia also opted to use the old microUSB port instead of Type-C.
The Nokia C3 has an official price of CNY699 (around Php4,900). It will be available in China starting August 13, while its international sales, especially here in the Philippines, is yet to be announced. Alternatively, you can check out the Nokia C1 that is available locally for only Php2,999.
