HMD Global has today announced the availability of the Nokia C1 Plus in Kenya. This is the first smartphone the company has launched in the country in 2021 and you can get it in retail stores for Ksh 9,000. This price will be for the 1GB RAM variant that comes with 16GB of internal storage space. The phone will come in blue and red colour options.
As with all Nokia smartphones, the Nokia C1 Plus brings with it the stock Android interface that gets rid of bloatware and gives you the same experience you would get on the Google Pixel phones.
The Nokia C1 Plus is the successor to the Nokia C1 from 2019. Both these are entry level devices and that is evident from the price. With that said, expect entry level specifications on the Nokia C1 Plus.
Speaking during the announcement, Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager at HMD Global said “The Nokia C1 was extremely successful in its mission to bring a great smartphone experience and make that first step to a smartphone truly accessible to all. With the next generation connectivity already out there, operators across the world are optimising and 4G is being adapted as the new base line, leaving many 2G and 3G markets vulnerable to uncertainty. With the new Nokia C1 Plus, we offer reassurance that your new smartphone will go the distance and the certainty that you can trust it to connect anywhere.”

The Nokia C1 Plus has a polycarbonate body as was the case with its successor. As mentioned above, the phone comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. This phone has a microSD card slot that supports memory expansion to 128GB.
