With MWC 2019 just around the corner, we’re now seeing more early reveals of upcoming smartphone models expected to be unveiled in Barcelona. In the case of HMD Global, the Nokia 1 Plus looks to be one of the models heading to Spain, along with some pretty entry-level specs at that.
The leak, shared by TigerMobiles, shows that the phone will feature a Mediatek MT6739WW chipset, 1GB RAM, and a paltry 480×960 pixel display. This number is amazing, considering the phone is expected to have a 5-inch 18:9 ratio display, which translate to a pixel density of just 213 ppi.
Other features of the phone are still unknown, such as the battery or the camera. MediaTek lists the chipset to support sensors up to 13MP and full 4G LTE support. We do know the phone will have Android Pie 9.0 Go edition out of the box, so the measly 1GB RAM shouldn’t be a big problem.
Nokia may be releasing several other phones alongside the Nokia 1 Plus at MWC. That said, we will have to wait for the official announcement at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.
