Nokia has introduced two new models in the budget C series – the Nokia C22 and the Nokia C32. The Finns also presented the Nokia G22 with a focus on easy repairability.
The Nokia C32 is the first C-series smartphone with a 50 megapixel camera and glass on both the front and back. In addition, both the C32 and the C22 are protected against water and dust according to IP52. Both Nokia smartphones have 6.5-inch LCD displays with an HD+ resolution and slightly curved 2.5D glass. Other similarities are the 5,000 mAh battery with 10 watt charging capacity and the battery life of up to three days. According to Nokia, the battery life is supported by the AI-supported battery management.
The Nokia C32 features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 50-megapixel main camera with night mode, portrait mode and Auto-HDR, and a dedicated 2-megapixel macro lens. On the front is an 8-megapixel selfie camera that also supports Face Unlock with a mask.
The Nokia C32 is powered by a Unisoc SC9863A chipset with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. The latter can be expanded using a microSD card. Android 13 is used as the operating system. Nokia also promises quarterly security updates for two years.
The Nokia C32 is available today in Charcoal, Autumn Green and Beach Pink. Prices start at €129/$136.
The Nokia C22 has a plastic back that also accommodates the fingerprint sensor. Right next to it is the camera module, which consists of a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The same 8 megapixel selfie camera works on the front as on the C32, which also supports Face Unlock with the mask on.
The Nokia C22 comes with either 2 or 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. A microSD slot is also available here for memory expansion.
Color options include Midnight Black and Sand. The Nokia C22 is already available from retailers for around €109/$115.
