HMD Global dropped no less than four new cheap Nokia phones at the CES 2022 event. The new lineup is headed to the U.S., featuring the Nokia C100, Nokia C200, Nokia G100, and Nokia G400. Unfortunately, HMD didn't share the detailed specs. But we have the pricing for the four phones.

Nokia C100 and Nokia C200 fall into the entry-level bracket. At first glance, you might mistake the C100 for a phone out of 2018. The fat, heavy bezels and the 5.45" LCD are reminiscent of bygone design language. 

Plus, the MediaTek Helio A22 chip inside the phone is also four years old. The battery is a 3000 mAh cell. And you get 3GB of memory and 32GB of internal storage. The Android 12 Go built for low-end hardware powers the C100.

The C200 is essentially the same phone with a larger 6.1" display. And a bigger 4000 mAh battery capacity. The C100 starts at $99 (~ Rs. 17,506,) and the C200 is priced at $199 (~ Rs. 35,100.) Nokia 2760 Flip, a clamshell feature phone powered by KaiOS, was also announced, which retails for $79 (~ Rs. 13,900.)

The G400 is more competitive, featuring a 5G Snapdragon 480 chip. Its display is a 6.6" LCD that refreshes at a smooth 120Hz. The triple camera system onboard uses 48MP wide, 5MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro lenses. The 5000 mAh battery inside should be suitable for all-day use. Also, you get 6GB of memory, 128GB of storage, and the latest Android 12.

The G100 has the Snapdragon 615 at its heart (a chip that came out in 2014) if you can believe it. The platform will show its age right out the box. It's also powered by a 5000 mAh battery and Android 12. The screen is a 6.5" LCD with a 720P resolution and no high refresh rate. The camera on the G100 also has three lenses, but they were not specified. The G400 starts from $239 (~ Rs. 42,200.) And the G100 costs $149 (~ Rs. 26,300.)
