HMD quietly updated its entry-level lineup for the US and Cricket Wireless. The Nokia C5 Endi, C2 Tava and Tennen bring Android 10, triple camera setups and affordable pricetags. The C2 Tava and Tennen are essentially the same phone but the latter will be sold through retailers while the Tava will remain exclusive to Cricket Wireless.
Nokia C5 Endi
The Nokia C5 Endi is built around a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch for its 8MP selfie camera and a chunky bottom bezel. It features a polycarbonate casing and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left-hand side.
Around the back we have a 13MP main camera paired with a 5MP ultawide snapper and 2MP depth helper as well as a fingerprint scanner.
The MediaTek Helio P22 chipset sits at the helm paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The battery comes in at 4,000mAh battery and supports top ups at 10W speeds.
The Nokia C5 Endi will be available in Midnight Blue and will retail for $170. It goes on sale starting June 5 and will be exclusive to Cricket Wireless.
Nokia C2 Tava/Tennen
The Nokia C2 Tava/Tennen come with 5.45-inch HD+ displays with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 5MP selfie cams. Around the back, we have an 8MP primary camera alongside a 2MP depth helper. The casing is again made from polycarbonate and the Google Assistant button is again found on the left-hand side.
Under the hood, we have the Helio A22 chipset paired with 2GB RAM and 16/32GB storage which is expandable via the microSD slot. The battery comes in at 3,000 mAh and supports 10W top ups.
The C2 Tava will be available from May 29 for $110 in Tempered Blue, exclusively through Cricket Wireless.
The C2 Tennen will go for $70 and will be available across multiple retailers from June 15.
I hate notches and rounded corners too
I feel a bit the same with the C2 series. The C2 series were a fantastic S40 lineup.
Why would you keep that bottom bezel if you want to have a notch. Just shift the display down and avoid that disgusting trend of stupid notches
