Nokia C01 Plus is the latest C series Nokia phone, which is a slightly improved version of the last year’s Nokia C1 Plus. This device is using a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor (Unisoc SC9863A), has a 5 MP shooter, 3000 mAh battery, and runs on Android 11 Go, which makes it super affordable. But, the specs and software isn’t the only thing that is making this phone wallet-friendly.
Techno Rabin Youtube channel posted a disassembly and assembly video of Nokia C01 Plus that reveals its simple body design. The phone has a removable back cover that shields its polycarbonate internals, a simple one-piece motherboard, and a removable battery. I am not sure if the phone has an aluminum internal body to increase the stiffness or the shiny metal seen inside is actually the back of the display.
Check out the video below.
Anyways, I like the simplicity of the internal design. It reminds me of older affordable Nokia Lumia phones and some Nokia smartphones from the Symbian era. But, that also brings a memory of how those mass-produced phones ended up, mostly forgotten and rarely mentioned.
