iFixit collaboration will facilitate repair-at-home for the G22 model
HMD Global has launched three new Nokia devices. The new C32 and Nokia C22 are said to offer up to three-day battery life with improved imaging and durability in the C-series and the first Nokia. The G22 benefits from a global collaboration with American e-commerce and how-to website iFixit which sells repair parts, tools and repair guides and affordable parts.
Ben Wood, Chief Analyst, CCS Insight commented: “The ability to repair smartphones easily and affordably will become a key differentiator in the market. CCS Insight’s end-user research reflects this with approximately half of mobile phone users in Western Europe saying they would like to be able to have their device repaired at a reasonable cost if they break outside of the warranty period.”
Adam Ferguson, Head of Product Marketing, HMD Global: “People value long-lasting, quality devices and they shouldn’t have to compromise on price to get it. The new Nokia G22 is purposefully built with a repairable design so you can keep it even longer, and with advanced imaging on Nokia C32 and improved durability on Nokia C22, we are bringing even more value to the C-series.”
Nokia C32 comes with a 50MP camera and improved imaging algorithms and comes with the latest Android 13. The Nokia C22 has IP52 splash and dust protection, toughened 2.5D display glass, rigid metal chassis housed and a polycarbonate unibody design.
