Nokia C20 Plus: Budget Nokia Phone With 1-Year Replacement Guarantee

Additionally, the Nokia C20 Plus is backed by a 1-year replacement guarantee scheme. The smartphone was first unveiled in China in June 2021. HMD also mentioned that the other two devices in the portfolio- Nokia C01 Plus and Nokia C30 will be launched around the festive season in India.

Nokia C20 Plus Specifications & Features

Similar to most Nokia budget and mid-range phones, the C20 Plus also skips on a Full HD screen and ships with a 6.5-inch HD+ display. The smartphone is powered by Unisoc SC9863A SoC with up to 3GB of RAM. The highlight of the handset is its Android 11 Go Edition, which will offer a clean and stock Android user experience on a budget along with two years of security updates.

The C20 Plus packs an 8MP rear camera with LED flash along with a 2MP depth sensor and a 5MP front-facing camera for video calls and selfies. The budget handset comes in a durable polycarbonate body that is said to offer unmatched durability. HMD mentions that the C20 Plus has undergone 50 rigorous hardware reliability tests and can stand up against life's daily knocks without any major durability issues.

The C20 Plus is backed by a 4,950mAh battery cell that is said to offer two-day battery life on one full charge cycle. The budget device also gets microSD card support to expand the 32GB internal memory to up to 256GB. Besides, the handset comes equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack and FM Radio. Due to a bigger battery cell, the C20 Plus has a noticeable weight of 204.7g.

 

The C20 Plus is a 4G-only device with support for 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + and GLONASS. Sadly, the device ships with a micro USB port, which in 2021 seems quite dated even from budget phone standards.
