Nokia has just introduced a new budget phone in the C family. The Noki C3 is the follow up of the Nokia C2 device that was announced some months ago. It comes with a fingerprint scanner and also a large screen display size. The phone parades combo camera setup and sells under $100.

Design And Display

The good news is that the Nokia C3 falls under the mid-range category. So there is nothing wrong with the panel that is wrapped with all plastic nor the front screen that has visible bezels. It has body dimensions of 159.9 x 77 x 8.7 mm and weighs 184 grams.

The phone comes with just a single camera on the rear and a fingerprint scanner. It has a screen size of 5.99 inches under IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. The screen resolution is 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio, and 269 PPI density. You will see the Nokia branding on the bottom screen bezel and also the speaker and front camera on the top bezel and this gives it a small screen to body ratio of 75.2%. Not that bad considering the price.
