Details regarding the Nokia C30 including its specs, colour options and design have surfaced online courtesy of multiple sources. The smartphone will most likely feature a 6.8-inch FHD+ display, single rear camera, and a big battery.
Nokiapoweruser leaked Nokia C30’s images online alongside several of its important specifications. Additional information related to Nokia C30 comes from a Russian retailer site, 4Dealer, and a recent US FCC listing. However, no official information is available from HMD global, the finnish company that owns Nokia.
As per leaks, Nokia C30 comes with Android 11 as a pre-installed OS. And in addition to a 6.8-Inch FHD+ (1,080 X 2,400 pixels) display, it features a water drop notch, a thick chin with Nokia branding and a 5 MP selfie camera. At the back, Nokia C30 sports a circular camera housing a single 13 MP sensor. Adjacent to the circular array is the flash and below it is the fingerprint sensor.
Reports allege an unknown hexa-core 1.60 GHz processor, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage (expandable upto 256 GB) packed in the Nokia C30 along with a massive 6,000 mAh battery. Other important Nokia C30 features include a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top, dual-sim tray, Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, micro-SD card face-unlock etc.
The leak also suggests that Nokia C30 will come with a micro-USB port, which is hard to believe because even the entry level smartphones feature a USB Type-C port in 2021. Regardless, Nokia C30 will have 191 of kerb weight, which is a bit on the heavier side.
Nokia C30 will most likely have two colour options - white and green. The leaked photo suggests that The rear panel is made out of plastic with a matte finish which will prevent fingerprints. Although the upcoming Nokia C30 will launch with Android 11, HMD Global has struggled in the past to deliver timely updates. Most Nokia phones are manufactured by foriegn ODM’s and HMD Global has little to no control over on their hardware or software. Nokia’s competitors like Samsung offer a minimum of four years of security updates on its Galaxy devices, which is leagues ahead.
For reference, Nokia 8.3 5G launched in 2020 will only receive one more update after Android 11. Although there is no launch date for the Nokia C30, it could suffer from the chronic case of “too little, too late.”
