The Finnish manufacturer HMD Global has presented the Nokia C2 smartphone. It is a cheap smartphone with a removable 2800mAh battery. That feature has become rare in the smartphone market. The smartphone does not appear to be coming out in Europe.

The C2 succeeds the C1 presented at the end of last year as a budget model for the African market, the Middle East and Asian countries. The specs page does not list supported tires for the European market. It is therefore not obvious that the C2 will be released in Europe, just like its predecessor.

Compared to the C1, the C2 now supports 4g. The screen now also has a higher resolution; it’s a 720p screen. It is a 13×6.5cm LCD with an area of ​​83 square centimeters and a 5.7″ diagonal with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The entire phone measures 15.5×7.6cm and 8.9mm thick, and weighs 161 grams.

The soc is from Unisoc with four unknown processor cores at 1.4GHz, assisted by a working memory with a size of 1GB and a storage of 16GB. The device runs the Go edition of Android Pie. HMD has not yet announced a price, but the C1 cost about 53 euros.

It will not be the only smartphone that HMD presents this week. The manufacturer has planned an online event as a replacement for its presentation at the telecom fair Mobile World Congress. That fair was canceled last month due to the outbreak of the corona virus.
