On the occasion of CES 2022, Nokia presented several new smartphones which have the advantage of being easy to use and having a low price.
The kick-off of CES 2022 has been launched, and the announcements follow one another on the side of the brands, which are ultimately very few to be present on site, in Las Vegas. Nokia, once one of the hottest companies in the smartphone market, took the opportunity to present some new models, which may appeal to those on a budget. They are called Nokia C100, C200, G100 and G400 and we present them to you below.
The C100, C200 and G100, to get to the point without breaking the bank
The first two models are literally the physical embodiment of the word simplicity. On the spec side, Nokia favors average components in all areas, while making huge compromises. Said like that, the case does not seem attractive, and yet! We find in this smartphone a MediaTek Helio 822 chip, a front sensor and a rear sensor, and all powered by a 4000 mAh battery. Its biggest advantage is that its price is below the 100 euros mark, since it has today been announced for the price of 99 dollars at the moment.
In the same category is the C200, a model very slightly above since it embeds a larger screen, 6.1 inches. However, we find the same other specs, including the MediaTek Helio 822 chip, all for a few dollars more on the bill. It was advertised for $ 119, or just over $ 100.
If you are after a little more power and an even bigger screen, then you can fall back on the Nokia G100. This has a 6.5-inch panel and does not embed a MediaTek chip, but a Qualcomm chip. This is the Snapdragon 615, a processor far below what is currently on the market but which will suffice for the simplest tasks (messages, calls, internet browsing). It is displayed for him at a price of 149 dollars.
The G400, an affordable versatile alternative
With the G400, we still go to another level since it is the only smartphone presented that offers itself as a low-cost alternative to 5G smartphones on the market. As this connectivity gradually becomes the norm, and carriers often charge you for the switch to 5G even if you don’t have a compatible phone, the Nokia G400 allows you to make this transition smoothly.
The G400 has a large screen, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a rate found in the mid-range. Inside, neither Qualcomm nor MediaTek, we find an SD480 4350 Pro chip. Finally, at the rear, there are three different sensors, with a main sensor of 48 MP. The whole thing was advertised for $ 239. A good deal compared to previous models but still extremely affordable for a 5G smartphone.
