HMD Global’s Nokia 1 is said set to be launched under the Android Go programme next year. Google’s initiative for entry level smartphones is targeted at developing nations with limited access to highspeed data networks, which tells us a great deal about towards who this device caters.
Android Go is a stripped-down, light version of the most current version of the Android OS (Android 8.0 Oreo at this point). It also includes a suite of reduced versions of Google own apps, like YouTube Go and Files Go.
Thanks to a twitter post by Eldar Murtazin, we also have a clue of what the Nokia 1’s specifications will be like. It will supposedly have an HD IPS display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It will come in a selection of colours, one of which will be white.
Murtazin also speculates that the price of the phone will be between 4990 – 5490 Rubles (RM 352 – 387). HMD Global hasn’t made any official announcements as of yet; but having the Nokia 1 would fit nicely into the company’s portfolio of phones.
