Nokia C30 smartphone South Africa

HMD Global has announced the Nokia C30 will soon be available in South Africa — bringing its largest display and battery yet to local shores.

The C30 arrives a few months after the C10 and C20 entry-level smartphones made their local debut.

“Somewhat of a ‘flagship’ in our C-series, the Nokia C30 is a shining example of what this range stands for – bringing the best possible quality to an introductory price point,” CEO of HMD Global, Florian Seiche, said in a statement.

“It’s the ultimate device for people who are ready to transition into the world of smart technology – from a brand you know and trust.”

Smartphone features

The C30 sports a 6.82-inch HD+ display with 720×1600 resolution. It is the largest display ever fitted to a Nokia smartphone.

Inside, the phone uses an octa-core 1.6GHz processor with Android 11 (Go Edition). It comes equipped with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage.

It also features a 6 000mAh battery, the largest also ever fitted to a Nokia phone. HMD Global claims the battery can last up to three days on a single charge.

On the back, the phone has a dual camera system comprising a 13MP wide lens and a 2MP depth sensor.

There is also a 5MP selfie camera located at the top of the display.

Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and regular security updates for at least two years.
