Nokia C32: Reliable Low-Cost Smartphone for Daily Use for Less Than BDT 14,000

Nokia has had difficulty maintaining control over the smartphone market during the past ten years. Following the failure of its initial initiatives, the well-known smartphone company is now moving cautiously forward. As a result, its most recent offerings seem more considered and balanced than before. On April 6, 2024, the Nokia C32 was formally released in Bangladesh. The Nokia C32 is a low-cost phone that attempts to restore people’s faith in the brand.

Key Specs and Features of the Nokia C32

The Nokia C32 is an entry-level phone, thus it doesn’t exactly boast high-end features. But thanks to its well-deserved reputation for producing strong and long-lasting phones, Nokia is once again proving its excellence with its most recent release.


The dimensions of the Nokia C32 are 164.6 x 75.9 x 8.6 mm, and its total weight is 199.4 g. The primary body structure is made of plastic and has glass covers on the front and back. The back covering glass gleams with an upscale appearance against an off-white background. Glass is resilient and guards against tiny, unintentional drops from hands. Dust may be attracted to it. A camera module with a dual lens holding capacity is located in the upper left corner of the phone’s back.

The phone’s secondary lens, which is positioned in a water drop hole in the middle of the display, and the display are protected from scratches by scratch-resistant glass on the front. The overall design has not been compromised by the chin and bezel being kept thin.

On the right frame, a fingerprint sensor and a power button are positioned on the side. The volume rockers are positioned above it, perfectly aligned with the power button. Surrounding the frame are a Type-C charging connector, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a speaker. Users will simply have to put up with the absence of a noise-cancelling system.


The Nokia C32 has a 6.52-inch IPS LCD screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio as its display. The display’s 720 by 1600 resolution makes it difficult to see clear videos. Owing to the display’s low pixel density, the images it displays appear a little washed out from some perspectives.

It is difficult for the display to show explicit images outside. In bright daylight, maximising brightness is not really helpful. The screen’s touch response frequently deteriorates, although this doesn’t take away from the overall experience. A little bit faster refresh rate would be more useful and hospitable.


When compared to other phones in the same price range, the two back cameras—one with a 50MP wide lens and the other with a 2MP macro lens—don’t perform poorly. Nokia has added capabilities like HDR, Portrait, and Night Mode, which don’t require as much processing power as one might anticipate. The photographs taken in low light conditions and containing a small amount of noise cannot be saved by the night mode.

Its 8 MP front lens produces high-quality selfies. It makes the same mistakes as the primary shooter when taking pictures in dim light.

1080p videos may be recorded at 30 frames per second using the primary camera. On the other hand, the front camera records in 720p resolution at a reduced frame-per-second rate.


The Nokia C32 is equipped with a 22nm-based Unisoc SC9863A1 processor. The integrated IMG8322 GPU helps to alleviate graphics strain.

Depending on the storage and RAM capacity, the phone can be broken down into multiple variants: 64GB with 3GB of RAM, 64GB with 4GB of RAM, 128GB with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB with 6GB of RAM. It is compatible with eMMC 5.1. The eMMC data transfer technology is antiquated, though.

The Nokia C32’s CPU and GPU are typical of entry-level phones. However, in comparison to the rivals, a 22nm chipset is a little antiquated. It will be difficult to play high-end games on the Nokia C32. Low-spec games will operate smoothly. The phone is solely made to facilitate standard multitasking, seamless internet browsing, and basic app navigation.

The phone’s native Android 13 OS prevents bloatware from appearing in the user interface. For a low-cost phone, the fact that it will support Android updates for two years is noteworthy.

Battery and Charger

The Nokia C32’s 5000 mAh battery is a powerful power source. Even with frequent use, it will offer support for the whole day. According to Nokia, the phone will last three days at an average usage rate. The battery can handle frighteningly low charging of up to 10W.
