HMD Global has launched a new smartphone called Nokia C22 in India aimed at light users who need a good battery life from their phone.


Nokia C22 is the latest phone in HMD Global’s affordable lineup in India. The new C22 is an entry-level phone, which means it is best suited for users who want a phone for calls, browsing the internet, and using apps such as WhatsApp or Instagram. HMD Global claims the Nokia C22 offers durability and improved drop protection, thanks to the IP52 rating. This phone has a few more things to appeal to customers.

HMD Global has offered Android 13 (Go edition) on the Nokia C22, making it one of the few entry-level phones to ship with the latest Android software. If you are unaware, the Go edition of an Android version is trimmed-down enough to run on phones with low memory. To make that possible, Google has optimised its apps for such phones. These trimmed-down versions have the word “Go” in their names, for instance, Gmail Go, YouTube, and Maps Go. Also Read - Nokia XR21 may be HMD's next rugged phone with powerful specifications
