HMD Global launches 3 budget Nokia smartphones for Cricket Wireless
Since HMD Global licensed the rights to the Nokia smartphone brand, the company has been releasing out new Android smartphones like it’s nobody’s business. They’ve released a few high-end smartphones but they’ve mostly focused on mid-range and budget devices. In the U.S., HMD Global sells a lot of budget Nokia smartphones through carriers. Today, the company announced the Nokia C5 Endi, Nokia C2 Tava, and Nokia C2 Tennen for Cricket Wireless.
These 3 new Nokia smartphones are available for between $70-$170 on the AT&T-owned prepaid wireless carrier. Their names aren’t exciting and neither is the software or hardware inside them, but they’re very cheap smartphones in a market littered with overpriced options, so there’s not much to complain about.
Nokia C5 Endi
The Nokia C5 Endi has a 6.5″ 19.9 panel, so it’s a pretty big budget phone all things considered. The display itself has an HD+ 720p resolution with a notch cutout. There is a sizeable 4,000 mAh battery, a MediaTek Helio P22 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a triple rear camera array with a 13MP primary sensor + 5MP wide-angle sensor + depth-sensor, and Android 10.
Nokia C2 Tava
There is also the Nokia C2 Tava with more low-end specifications including a MediaTek Helio A22 processor, a 3,000 mAh battery, a 5.45″ 18:9 HD+ display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, dual rear cameras including an 8MP primary and 2MP depth sensor, a plastic body, and Android 10.
Nokia C2 Tennen
We also have the Nokia C2 Tennen which is basically the same device as the C2 Tava but comes in “vibrant Steel.”
Nokia C5 Endi, C2 Tava, and C2 Tennen Pricing and Availability
