Nokia’s first Android Go handset Nokia 1 has been revealed at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The company’s budget-centric phone is also one of the few ‘Android Go’ handset to hit the market. The handset will go on sale from April with a modest price tag of $85.
As for the specs, the Nokia 1 comes with MediaTek’s MT6737M octa-core chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a 2,150mAh removable battery inside. Despite the low-end specs, the handset should run as smooth as possible, all thanks to the Android Go software which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The phone is also not so remarkable in terms of camera. It just comes with a 5MP camera at the rear with LED flash, whilst the front has a 2MP sensor.
Nokia 8 Sirocco
The predecessor to last year’s Nokia 8, the Nokia 8 Sirocco overcomes some of the factors that made the company’s last year flagship less exciting. Despite sharing similar hardware to its counterpart, the Sirocco now comes with an IP67 rating, an improved dual-camera setup at the rear and at the front, and a bigger 5.5-inch curved P-OLED QHD display.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco now supports wireless charging, while at the same time is protected with Gorilla Glass 5 protection; both at the front and the back. Rest assured, the specs are similar to what its predecessor offers, including the Snapdragon 835 chipset and 6GB of RAM.
Nokia 7 Plus
While the Sirocco is not less of an exciting, the 7 Plus adds more glare to the company’s lineup. The main reason being the 18:9 display — the first of its kind from the company. Inside is the Snapdragon 660 chipset which can now be seen in other mid-rangers.
However, don’t let this fool you. Albeit the mid-range processor, rest assured, the phone carries a prowess similar to what a flagship has to offer; right from the beginning you see it. The display, build quality, the camera is some of the few features that the phone delivers the most.
The meticulously built phone somewhat bears a resemblance to Google Pixel 2 XL but cost low at around $490.
Nokia 6 (2018)
The new and revamped edition of Nokia 6 comes with subtle changes, including Snapdragon 630 processor and an aluminium body. Accompanying these is 4GB of RAM, 64GB ROM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo. On top of that, the change in aesthetics has made the company shift the fingerprint scanner from the front to the rear, just below the camera.
Nokia 8110 4G
And here’s a banana looking phone from Nokia. This company never seize to amaze us. While last years revamped 3310 was somewhat successful, the 8110 4G is also a reimagined version of the 1996’s Nokia 8110; but with 4G.
The slider phone has a curve just like a banana, and thanks to the yellowish colour, it’s now confirmed. The 2.5-inch curved LCD is powered by Qualcomm 205 dual-core chipset. The RAM is 512MB, there’s also 4GB of internal storage and a 1500mAh battery, which shall last long.
