New Nokia smartphone (C30/C20 Plus?) TA-1388 certified in China

About two years ago, Nokia Mobile was forced to restructure its approach since FIH denied working with HMD Global for the then-upcoming Nokia smartphones citing the poor performance of the business in terms of sales volume and margin/profitability. In China, the result of this global restructuring was that the company shifted its complete focus from smartphones to feature phones and even dropped the support for the existing devices.

It was (un)surprising to see such a strategy from the company in the world’s largest smartphone market. However, Nokia Mobile made a comeback with the affordable smartphone, Nokia C3, and then the Nokia C1 Plus in the second half of last year. Even the Nokia 8.3 5G was certified by one of the regulatory bodies of China called CQC, but only HMD Global knows what happened with that.

Anyways, another smartphone seems to be making its way to China after around five months since the Nokia C1 Plus’s arrival. The new Nokia TA-1388 is supported by a 10 W (5 V, 2A) rated power adapter. It is being manufactured by Sprocomm Technologies, which also manufactures the Nokia C3 and Nokia C1 Plus for the country. It is worth noting that China will get a Nokia smartphone shipping with a more than 5 W rated charger after a gap of two years, as the last was the Nokia X71.

A recent tweet by Nokibar unveiled the back designs and battery size of two new C series smartphones called Nokia C20 Plus and Nokia C30, and one of these might head towards China. Nokia C20 Plus is rumored to have a 5000 mAh battery, while the Nokia C30 seems to hold a 6000 mAh battery, the largest yet on a Nokia phone.

Nokia TA-1388 might turn out to be one of the two devices, but will the 10 W charger suffice? TENAA should be releasing the photos of the device soon since the device first appeared back in April. With that, Nokia Mobile has now three phones set for China, including two 4G feature phones, and a 4G smartphone.
