Besides a series of mid-range Android-powered smartphones and its 2020 flagship 9.2, HMD Global is tipped to unleash a new entry-level 4G smartphone in the Asian market soon. The upcoming smartphone dubbed Nokia C2 would reportedly come with model number TA-1204 and have dual 4G SIM slots. Besides, the forthcoming smartphone would come with an UniSoC processor like its predecessor Nokia C1.
There are no further details about the pricing, colour options or specifications of Nokia C2 yet. However, according to smartphone trends, the Nokia C2 would come with an improved design, enhanced camera, better internet penetration and a more powerful battery. We also expect the smartphone to come in a wide range of colour options.
HMD Global has already bagged the necessary certification in Thailand and Malaysia. Hence it is expected to hit the shelves in the Asian market soon.
