Nokia C20 Plus goes live in China before tomorrow’s launch

Soon after taking the curtains off the Nokia C01 Plus globally, Nokia Mobile quietly listed the Nokia C20 Plus on its China website. The smartphone follows the design of the Nokia C20 and Nokia C10. There is not much difference on the front as it is occupied by a 6.5-inch HD+ display, with an aspect ratio of 20:9, but misses out on the front LED flash.

The teardrop notch holds the 5 MP front camera, and above it is the earpiece. The bottom, as always, screams that it is a NOKIA phone. At the back, it has the speaker grille and a dual-camera array comprising an 8 MP main shooter and a 2 MP depth sensor. The rear LED flash is outside the circular camera module.

Nokia C20 Plus has a polycarbonate build, and the company claims that the device has passed 600 rigorous quality tests. If not as big as the G series phones, Nokia C20 Plus’ battery is now the second biggest yet on a Nokia smartphone. The device weighs around 205 g with its non-removable 4950 mAh battery that uses a 5 V, 2 A (10 W) rated power adapter to refuel.

Inside, it is again a 1.6 GHz octa-core chip. After the Nokia C3, Nokia C20, and Nokia C01 Plus, it is the fourth Nokia smartphone to use the Unisoc SC9863A processor. Nokia C20 Plus for China will be available with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, which is expandable up to 256 GB using a microSD card.

Minimalist mode on Nokia C20 Plus in China

The smartphone is shipping with Android 11 Go but has a UI design that the company calls minimalist mode (translated) with large icons, and is different than the international variant.

The other specifications include:

  • Model Numbers: TA-1388 (Dual SIM)
  • Colors: Ocean Blue, Graphite Black
  • Dimensions: 165.4 x 75.85 mm
  • Features: Face unlock, FM radio
  • Ports: 3.5 mm audio jack, micro USB
  • Connectivity: 4G, Bluetooth 4.2, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi (b/g/n), GPS/AGPS

Nokia Mobile will live stream the launch of the Nokia C20 Plus tomorrow in China at 10 AM (China Standard Time, GMT+8). The product will go on sale the same day alongside the Nokia Lite Earbuds (BH-205) and Nokia Portable Wireless Speaker (SP-101) in the country.

That leaves us with three more unannounced Nokia phones whose names are known, i.e., Nokia C30, Nokia 110 4G, and Nokia 105 4G. Earlier in the day, HMD Global got its first-ever Nokia tablet registered in Russia.
