If you want something a bit higher than featurephone classics, HMD believes the Nokia C series is the best for you. Especially when you don’t need full-blown Android, then the C-series is worth a look. Just like the G-phones, these two are quite similar. The new Nokia C10 and Nokia C20 have somethings in common.

Nokia C10

The Nokia C10 and C20 features a 6.52” LCD with 720p+ resolution (20:9) but the former is protected with Panda Glass and targets 400 nits of brightness, 70% NTSC coverage.

The two phones have near identical camera setups, with single 5 MP module on the back and one 5 MP module on the front. The Nokia C10 is powered by the Unisoc SC7331e (quad-core 1.3 GHz), the same chip used in the original C1.

As these are Android 11 Go Edition phones, they start with 1GB of RAM (with an option for 2 GB). Storage is similarly limited, 16 or 32 GB for both. If it’s any consolation, both have dedicated microSD slots. HMD promises two years of quarterly updates for the C-series duo.

The C10 and C20 have 3,000 mAh batteries with bog-standard 5W charging over microUSB. Yes, unlike the G-series, these two bring microUSB in 2021. At least HMD kept the 3.5 mm headphone jack with FM radio. The Nokia C10 is actually a 3G-only phone.
