The latest addition to the HMD family in Kenya is the Nokia C1. This phone is available in retail stores including Jumia for Ksh 6,999, quite affordable if you ask me. This is one of the new devices that the company has launched in Kenya and is targeting those who are looking to upgrade from a feature phone, those looking for a reliable and affordable smartphone or anyone looking for a phone within this price range.
The Nokia C1 is a true entry level device with specs that match that. You are not getting fancy specifications here but rather good ones that will serve you well. This is one of the cheaper devices that HMD Global has on the market.
