Out of the four, Micromax In 2C is the slimmest at 8.6mm but Nokia C12 is the lightest at 177.4g. All of them are plastic-made and have a waterdrop notch front. They look different only because of the difference in their rear design, including the back camera panel’s look.

All phones sport an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.
