Nokia C3 with Unisoc CPU gets announced in China null

HMD Global out of nowhere has launched a budget smartphone, the Nokia C3 in China and it’s nothing like the ancient Nokia C3 with a QWERTY keyboard from 2010. Starting at just $100, the design is not the only part that raises our eyebrows as the company is believed to have used China’s Unisoc SoC onboard.

Before we get to the SoC part, the design really takes us two years back in time as there are thick bezels on the top and bottom of the display. The rear panel is made of polycarbonate material and has a single camera along with LED flashlight and fingerprint sensor at the center.

While the build is understandable considering the price, the display is square without notches and has a 5.99-inch HD+ screen with a resolution of 1440×720 pixels and 400 nits of brightness. We also have a selfie shooter and speaker grill housed at the top of the display.
