Well, Nokia announced a lot of phones today at the Mobile World Congress at Barcelona and we already talked about the return of Nokia 8110 in the previous post. In this article, we will be taking a look at the design and the specifications of the all new Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, 2nd Gen Nokia 6 and the Nokia 1 smartphones. All these have been announced today at the event and are aimed at different price segments.
NOKIA 1 – DESIGN AND SPECIFICATIONS
The Nokia 1 is a smartphone for the low-end segment. Due to its low-end specs, it comes with the Android Oreo ‘Go’, which is a slimmed down version of the Android Oreo for those phones that have a ‘not too powerful’ processor and are low on RAM. The Nokia 1 is a low-end phone, so don’t expect the specs to be great. In fact, for a price of $85, it might be a little overpriced as compared to phone from companies like Xiaomi that are available at the same price but have better specs. Anyways, the design of the phone is pretty normal. If you were a fan of those Xpress-on covers for the old Nokia phones, they are making a return with this phone as it comes with interchangeable Xpress-on covers.
The phone is coming in two colours – Red and Blue, but there will be a lot of colours for the Xpress-on covers. There are on-screen buttons, and the phone has thick bezels all around the screen.
