HMD Global, together with the inexpensive Nokia T21 tablet, introduced the Nokia C31 smartphone. You can’t really call it cheap – the price is $ 240 (a tablet is $ 100 cheaper).
Nokia C31 received a large IPS screen with a diagonal resolution of 6.75 inches, but the resolution is not high – HD +. The dimensions of the device are 169.2 x 78 x 8.6 mm, weight – 200 grams.
At the heart of the hardware platform is the old 28nm Unisoc 9863A1 SoC with eight 1.6GHz Arm Cortex-A55 cores and a PowerVR GE8322 GPU. A not too powerful platform, however, is quite enough to launch a full-fledged Android 12 (the creators promise to release security updates within two years, but not a word about possible Android updates). There are three memory options: 3/32, 4/64 and 4/128 GB. There is a microSD card slot and it supports media up to 256GB.
The camera is represented by three modules – with sensors with a resolution of 13 megapixels, 2 megapixels (for macro photography) and 2 megapixels (for analyzing the depth of the scene). The front camera housed in the waterdrop notch is 5-megapixel. It supports face unlock. The second method of biometric identification is a fingerprint scanner located on the rear panel.
The battery capacity was 5050 mAh, it supports 10 W charging via the microUSB port. There is protection against dust and water in accordance with the degree of IP52, as well as a standard headphone jack. The cost of Nokia C31 in the basic version (3/32 GB) is $240.
