Nokia, like the last year, has a couple of devices this year in their pipeline. According to the reports and speculation, along with the successor of some previous year models, there will be a couple of new entries this year, namely the Nokia 9, the Nokia 4, the Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 1, which we reported earlier to be the first Nokia branded smartphone from HMD under the Android Go program.
A couple of new images of the Nokia 1 device have surfaced on the web via the Chinese microblogging site Baidu, giving the first impressions of the device, especially the rear shell. It looks like the body will be made of plastic and the other mid-range Nokia smartphones inspire its design. In the image, the device sports a greyish color, which will likely be one of the color variants. The protruding oval segment, which contains the rear camera and the flash, is purely Nokia design. These photos do not resemble the same variants because one camera module is covered in polycarbonate while the other is covered in normal glass.
As per the rumors, the Nokia 1 2018 will feature an IPS LCD of HD(1280 x 720 pixels) and will offer 1 GB RAM along with 8 GB internal storage. We expect the display to be around 5.5 inches from the leaked image today. It’s not sure what chipset will power the device, but it’s speculated that it will be either a Snapdragon 400-series chipset or a MediaTek one. Also, we are sure it will have a single camera sensor on the rear. The device is expected to run on Android Oreo (Go Edition).
The Nokia 1 smartphone will be debuting in various markets like Russia around spring this year and will come with a price tag of around Rs 6,000, which will place it against the likes of Redmi 4A.
