Nokia C02 announced with 3000mAh battery and a quad-core CPU

Nokia Mobile has just unveiled a new addition to their affordable smartphone lineup, the Nokia C02. The C series is typically associated with budget devices, and the the C02 is not an exception.

The Nokia C02 is available in three different models: TA-1460, TA-1501, and TA-1522, with a code name of Cypher. It boasts IP52 waterproofing and a durable chassis, giving it a guaranteed splash resistant rating.


Despite its budget price point, the C02 packs a relatively large 3000 mAh battery, which should provide enough power for a full day of use. Recall that the Nokia C1 Plus, which has similar display and CPU with this model only came with a 2500mAh battery.

The hardware is not particularly demanding, with a 5.45-inch FWVGA+ display and a combination of a 5 MP main camera and a 2 MP selfie camera.

Under the hood, a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage ensure smooth performance for the GO version of Android 12. Tentatively, this CPU is probably the UNISOC SC9832E that has PowerVR GE8322 GPU.


One of the most interesting features of the Nokia C02 is its IP52 rating, which is rare for devices in this price range. Despite this rugged design, the back cover can be easily removed to install the battery and SIM cards.
