Nokia C12 Launched

With Android 12 Go Edition

The Nokia C12, an affordable Android 12 Go Edition phone from HMD Global, debuts in 2023. Although it is actually smaller than most C-series phones, based on the model number, this is a follow-up to the Nokia C10 from early 2021. For people who want strong specs within a limited budget, Nokia can never disappoint.

Design & Build Quality

The Nokia C12 has a brilliant LCD with HD+ resolution on the 6.3″ display. The C12 weighs 177.4g and has dimensions of 160.6 x 74.3 x 8.75mm. The Unisoc SC9863A1 chipset, which was created on an antiquated 28nm node, powers the Nokia C12. It has a PowerVR IMG 8322 GPU and eight Cortex-A55 cores of 4x 1.6GHz + 4x 1.2GHz. Despite being inexpensive, the C12 is durable. The phone has a gripping polycarbonate body, but it also features toughened glass on the front to protect it from drops. The rating is IP52, protected against dust and dripping water. HMD has agreed to provide quarterly security upgrades for two years.

Camera & Connectivity

The phone boasts two cameras: a 5MP selfie camera on the front and an 8MP module with autofocus and an LED flash on the rear (in a notch). They offer Portrait and Night modes. 

Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 5.2 are additional wireless communication choices available on the 4G-capable Nokia C12. The 3.5mm jack is also present. So, both wired and wireless headphones can be used. In relation to all the nice features, the phone has a meagre 5W charger and a 3,000mAh battery that provides all-day battery life, a bit typical for all Nokia smartphones.


Although the phone only comes with 2GB of RAM, users can choose to enable an additional 2GB of virtual RAM. Go Edition can function with as low as 1GB of RAM, but some models have up to 4GB, so the C12 is in the middle of the spectrum. Although it has 64GB of storage (eMMC 5.1), there is no microSD expansion slot.

Price & Availability

Priced at $130, the Nokia C12 has only one variant available, which is 2 GB/64 GB. Following its initial release in Germany and Austria, it will shortly become available in more international markets.
