This week at Mobile World Congress (MWC), HMD Global announces Nokia 8 Sirocco, and Nokia 7 Plus alongside with a brand new low-end entry smartphone the Nokia 1. This is Nokia’s first Android Go phone, coming in at the equivalent of $85.
There’s a 4.5-inch display here, but it’s a comfortable 854×480 resolution and is, impressively, an IPS panel. There’s a MediaTek (MT6737M) quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, dual SIM slots and a removable 2150mAh battery. You even get two cameras 5MP on the rear and 2MP on the front.
Despite these basic specs, HMD is bringing back Nokia’s popular polycarbonate Xpress-on covers for the Nokia 1. There will be a wide range of covers available, and the Nokia 1 will ship in red or blue models as the standard colors.
