Nokia 1 , the company’s first Android Go phone was announced during the Mobile World Congress Event held in Barcelona earlier this year. Now the device is launched in India at Rs 5,499 with Rs 2,200 cashback offer from Reliance Jio. Only yesterday, we saw Lava Z50 Android Go phone launched along with cashback offer from Airtel. So already the competition heats up on Android Go (Oreo running) budget smartphones.
To recall, Android Go phones run light version of Android Oreo which is designed to work with devices even with 1GB or less RAM. Another advantage is that Nokia 1 is also part of Android One program, thereby making it easier to get regular updates. Now let’s check out the specifications of the Phone.
Nokia 1 Specifications
- 4.5inch FWVGA display with 854×480 pixels
- 1.1GHz Quad-core Mediatek MT6737M SoC
- 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage expandable using microSD card
- 5MP Primary rear camera and 2MP front camera for Selfie
- 2150mAh battery and running Android Oreo 8.1
Nokia 1 has Dual-SIM support and has connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. The device is available in Warm red and dark blue color options. The Android Go phone will be available for purchase from March 28th along with few offers.
Though being a good device and running latest Android version we at TechArea still feel the specifications doesn’t justify the price which Android GO phones (including Lava Z50) come with. What are your thoughts!
