Photo Announcement. Nokia C12 - a small budget smartphone

HMD Global has released another budget smartphone under the once-famous Nokia brand. Getting to know Nokia C12.

Chipset - Unisoc SC9863A1. So, if we're lucky, then in AnTuTu we'll get a little for a hundred thousand parrots.

Modest 2 GB of RAM. As a result, full-fledged Android did not fit - only Go Edition. But with permanent memory, everything is not bad - its 64 GB. Support for memory cards seems to be there, although it is not mentioned in the official specifications.

The screen is quite compact by today's standards, less than a hundred squares - 6.3" (96 cm²). Ratraditional resolution, 720x1600 (278 ppi). Without the increased refresh rate, of course.

Surprisingly small battery - only 3000 mAh. The cameras are simple single - 5 MP in front and 8 MP in the back.

Wi-Fi single band. There is no fingerprint scanner. Cherry on the cake - Micro-USB.

I don't see any official information about the cost. The news is about €119 (₽8840, $129) for Germany and Austria.

No doubt. Simple smartphones are essential. But.. It's all sad.
