This January 2021, Nokia released the Nokia C01 Plus. A remarkable flagship phone with a high screen resolution with extra display options, super-fast processing, and numerous camera modes and features that the competition lacks. The Nokia C01 Plus features a three-dimensional textured polycarbonate cover. Nokia claims that this cover makes the phone more durable. It has a long history with Unisoc CPUs, and this device is no exception. It has an octa-core Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) CPU with a 1.4GHz speed. The device has a pre-installed Android 10 (Go edition) operating system which helps in regular functions. As part of the Android One initiative, the phone ships with pure Android, which means there will be less bloatware and we’ll also get frequent updates for at least two years.
The crucial point to note here is that Nokia has pursued to appeal to budget clients, mostly through retail marketing rather than internet marketing. The phone is inexpensive, costing approximately $84 (6200 INR) in India. Depending on your needs, the Nokia C01 Plus provides the device in single and dual SIM slots. The internal memory storage of this device is 16 GB with 1GB RAM. They even provide us with a memory card slot, microSDXC which can be used to store additional data. Splash and dust protection is included in the exterior slots, preventing water and dust from accessing the core processors. This phone’s screen boasts a stunning resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, giving us a clear view of the entire screen from edge to edge. The 5.45-inch display provides a larger viewing area. The screen shows the time and applications, may be used to take selfies with the rear camera, and can even be used to answer phone calls, everything with its pretty good quality. The display screen is pretty remarkable, with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and pixel density of 295 PPI.
The dimension of the phone is 149.1 x 71.2 x 8.8 mm and it only weighs 146 g. Nokia C01 Plus is comfortable to hold and tiny enough to slip in a pocket. The phone comes with a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash on the back. The front-facing selfie camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels as well, allowing you to take good photos. The video resolution is up to 720p. They’ve even got an HDR mode. The camera quality is astounding for such a modest cost. The camera’s features will include auto flash, touch to focus, exposure adjustment, autofocus, high dynamic range (HDR) mode, prolonged shooting, white balance adjustments, face recognition, and geo-tagging. The phone has a 3.5mm headphone port, unlike other phones that only have a Type-C connection. It features built-in loudspeakers and great audio quality.
Nokia C01 Plus is powered by a replaceable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery. This allows us to replace it if the battery appears to be draining too quickly. The battery is charged using a 10W charger through a micro USB port. The connectivity options offered by this device are hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, micro USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and radio.
