“It’s possible the Nokia C2 with 4G would have launched at the February 23rd MWC event if it hadn’t been postponed”
Nokia C1 entry-level Android Go smartphone was launched back in December 2019. However, it lacked 4G support, which was a big letdown even for its price tag. Now, according to a report from NokiaPowerUser, HMD Global is working on its successor- the Nokia C2, and this will have 4G connectivity as well as dual SIM support. It has model number TA-1204 and is already certified in Thailand and Malaysia. It’s possible the phone could have made an appearance at the company’s February 23rd MWC event if it hadn’t been postponed. The Nokia C2 is said to ship with a UNISOC processor and is expected to come in new colours. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Nokia C2 budget phone at the moment.
