The Nokia C20 purported smartphone has now surfaced in a new leak, revealing what the next sub-Rs 10,000 smartphone from Nokia may look like. Nokia, run by HMD Global, is slated to refresh its smartphone nomenclature with upcoming launches, in a bid to streamline an increasingly confusing naming scheme that it has had with its smartphones so far. The Nokia C20, on this note, is expected to replace its Nokia 1.x series of its most basic Android phones. However, going by the leaks, even though Nokia looks set to rehash its smartphone naming scheme, it still does not seem to be ready to overhaul its smartphone specifications strategy that may make it more competitive against Chinese OEMs – that typically go for a more aggressive price to specifications approach.
According to the latest leak, reported by Nokia Power User, the Nokia C20 may feature 1GB RAM and 16GB storage, therefore cementing its budget smartphone credentials. It features an unspecified chipset, but is said to be running on Android 11. It will likely feature the near-stock Android user experience that Nokia phones have come with. Other details about the rumoured smartphone include two colour options – Blue and Sand, and a price tag of EUR 89, which is about Rs 7,500.
Not much else is known about the purported Nokia C20, including its battery and display specifics – which should surface in the coming days. The smartphone is expected to be launched in an upcoming HMD Global event on April 8, where the company is also expected to unveil other smartphones group under two new lineups – the Nokia X-series and the Nokia G-series. These smartphones are expected to be the Nokia X10 and X20, and Nokia G10 and G20. While the Nokia X10 and X20 may replace the erstwhile Nokia 6.x an 7.x devices, the Nokia G10 and G20 may be substitutes for the Nokia 2.x and 3.x ranges.
It may be an interesting ploy for Nokia to hark back on its letter-based smartphone naming schemes. Mobile phones under the Nokia N-series and E-series were held as icons in the world of business and flagship mobile phones in the pre-smartphone era, and with devices such as the Nokia C20, the company may be looking to cash in on more of the same.
