Cheap NEW Nokia C2 phone looks like an iPhone – but it only costs £75

NOKIA has unveiled two new smartphones – including one model that costs just £74.99.

The bargain-basement blower could be mistaken for a high-end Samsung or iPhone by the untrained eye, but it's actually a thrifty Nokia handset.

HMD Global – which makes phones under the Nokia brand – launched the two handsets at this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

There's the Nokia C2 (2nd Edition) and the Nokia C21 Plus.

Nokia describes the former as "super-tough and reliable" with a rugged metal chassis.

It's a follow-on from the previous Nokia C2 that launched in 2020.

The handset ships with a 5.7-inch touchscreen, and a 5-megapixel camera on the back.

It's surprisingly attractive for such a low-cost phone, and will likely tempt buyers on a budget.

It's powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, and runs on Google's Android 11 Go Edition.

The Nokia C2 (2nd Edition) is available in the UK from May.

It comes in Dark Blue or Warm Grey and starts at £74.99 variants.

There are two memory/storage variants: 2/32GB and 3/32GB.

The Nokia C21 Plus is a slightly more expensive handset – but still very cheap at £99.99.

This is the "flagship" tier device in Nokia's cheap C-series, shipping with a large 6.5-inch HD display.

It's got two 13-megapixel cameras on the back, allowing it to take iPhone-style Portrait photos with "bokeh" backgrounds.

And it's got a whopping 4,000mAh battery that Nokia reckons will give you two days of battery life.

The phone is available in Dark Cyan and Warm Grey and comes in three memory/storage variants: 2/32GB, 3/32GB, 4/64GB.

You'll be able to buy the Nokia C21 Plus from late April.

Nokia chief Florian Seiche called the release of these phones a "new chapter".

He described them as "affordable Nokia devices that are not only safe, reliable and durable, but ensure as many people as possible can access the latest innovative technology for less".
