Speaking on the launch of the new Nokia C10 smartphone, Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager Kenya and East Africa HMD Global said, “Somewhat of a “flagship” in our C-series, the Nokia C30 is a shining example of what this range stands for – bringing the best possible quality to an introductory price point. It’s the ultimate device for Kenyans who are ready to transition into the world of smart technology – from a brand you know and trust. More than half[i] of smartphone users say that daily battery life is the most important battery feature for their needs. The Nokia C30 is an answer to what people have been asking for – more time between charges, more screen, our signature security and durability, and the same accessible price point.”
