Nokia C21 and C21 Plus are the brand's retro-styled phones with barebone features, thick chin & bezels. HMD Global announced these phones back in February at the MWC exhibition 2022. The brand has remained silent about its Pakistani launch ever since. However, the vanilla sibling successfully landed in Pakistan yesterday. We have its RAM/ROM configs and pricing details to report. Please keep reading to know more.

At a cheap Nokia Price, the Nokia G21's new cousin features a stock Android 11 Go operating system boosted by an Old octa-core chipset built on 28nm fabrication. More specifically, it's a UNISOC SC9863A with a measly 1.6GHz max clock speed, but it should run smoothly on its lightweight operating system. 

Nokia maintains a track record with two years of OS and security updates on their phones. C21 will be no exception. The launched variant only bares 2gigs of memory paired with 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. However, users can expand the storage using the dedicated MicroSD slot.

The list continues with a 3000mAh non-removable li-ion driver, powered over a dated Micro-USB plug. On the back plate of this pocket-friendly addition to the Nokia price list, you'll find a circular cutout enclosing the phone's biometric fingerprint sensor, a camera housing, and a speaker grille.


Inside its disc-shaped camera module, you'll find an 8MP sensor partnered with a flash. The phone has a standard 5MP sensor upfront for selfies and video calls.

Since it's a sub-entry-level phone, most features packed inside feel out of place in 2022. Nevertheless, Nokia C21 still offers a wide 6.5-inch screen with a non-disturbing notch and 720 x 1600 pixels HD+ resolution. Shipped in Dark Blue, Warm Gray skins, its 2+32GB variant will cost you Rs 19,500/-
