Protect what’s yours and feel safe

For many of us, smartphones store our most private information. AI-powered ​face unlock is now supported by fingerprint sensors for extra security and convenience. Two years of regular security updates come as standard for C-series, so you can rest assured the Nokia C21 works hard in the background to keep everything on your phone safe, so you can go about your day worry-free.

Rigorous testing to ensure durability that won’t disappoint

Made from sturdy polycarbonate, the body is supported by a metal chassis on the inside and toughened cover glass on the outside.

From force measurements to vigorous tumble, over 50 tests are carried out on every Nokia phone to ensure hardware durability, and Nokia C21 is no exception. The result is a smartphone which honours the long-lasting, Nordic excellence you’d expect from HMD Global, so you can hold on to your device for longer.

The beautiful Finnish aesthetic is also functional – designed with micro-texture on the back and curved sides to ensure a good grip.

Nokia C21 is available in Nigeria starting today in Dark Blue and Warm Grey and comes in a 2/32 GB variant starting at NGN 53,000.
