HMD-LED Nokia has announced the availability of a new budget Android phone under the C series. The Nokia C20 Plus was unveiled last month in China and is designed for users looking for affordable Android phones offering longer battery life.

The phone is a successor to the Nokia C20 that was released in the global markets recently and comes with a dual rear camera setup, near-stock Android experience and a promise of two years of security updates from HMD Global.

Additionally, HMD Global has announced a few other devices for the Indian market. These devices include: Nokia C01 Plus, Nokia C10, NokiaG10 and the Nokia XR20. The company will reveal the pricing and availability of these devices closer to the launch, however, apart from the Nokia XR20, which is a rugged phone with 5G connectivity, the rest all are aimed at budget and mid-range 4G smartphones. These phones will be launched in a scattered manner ahead of the upcoming festive season in India.

While responding to a query from TechRadar India, the company acknowledged the delay in software updates. It promised that with Android 12, the company will re-start the beta tests to ensure the timely rollout of the operating system and security updates.
