Nokia C2 2nd edition revealed with a metal frame. HMD has unveiled a cheaper alternative to the C21 pair – The Nokia C2 2nd edition. It’s a successor to the first C2. However, the improvements are offset by a few niggles. The most significant upgrade is the chassis made of metal to make it more durable against knocks and dents than the plastic C2.
But the changes aren’t as good from here. In the end, Samsung’s 5.7″ display has been reduced to 480×960 pixels resolution (18:9) instead of 1,440 pixels at 720 pixels. Then there’s more the selfie camera, which was 5MP, was replaced by a 2-megapixel camera (that still features an individual LED flash). The 5MP camera in the rear is left unaltered.
The new model also comes with smaller batteries, 2400 mAh (down from 2,800mAh) and supports basic 5W charging via micro USB. In addition, it is among the few phones with an option to remove the battery.
Additionally, it has a 3.5mm headphone port.

It is believed that a brand-new chipset powers the Nokia C2 2nd edition with a quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU. However, that’s all we know about. However, we are aware that it runs Android 11 Go Edition (with the promise of two years of security updates), and it will support the 4G network (Cat. 4).
It comes with 1GB or 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage. Dual-SIM and single-SIM versions of the phone feature the option of a microSD slot. HMD also unveiled Nokia-branded headphones, such as the simple-named Nokia Headphones, offered in both wireless and wired design.
They sport a slim design and soft over-ear cushion. Also available are these Nokia Go Earbuds 2+ that was announced earlier. They are said to provide the possibility of up to 24-hour playing time and are waterproof (IPX4). The case used for carrying has 300 mAh of battery which can be fully charged within two hours via USB-C.
