HMD Global, a Finnish smartphone maker, has unveiled a new entry-level Nokia smartphone, the Nokia 1.4. It is a successor to the Nokia 1.3. The phone seems to be an incremental upgrade over its predecessor, but it is arguably the best Android Go smartphone from Nokia. The phone has a good battery capacity and dual cameras. But the best part is the pricing, which is quite surprising for a phone that good. At EUR 99 (approx $119), the Nokia 1.4 is quite a deal!
Nokia 1.4 Debuts With Three Variants
The Nokia 1.4 is an Android Go smartphone, which is a lighter version of standard Android OS. The light operating system works the best on entry-level phones and offers a seamless user experience with regular updates.
The Nokia 1.4 is priced around $119 for the base variant featuring 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The other variants include 1GB RAM+32GB storage and 3GB RAM+64GB storage, but their pricing is still under wraps. All the variants have been launched in Charcoal, Dusk, and Fjord color options.
The dual-SIM smartphone will be upgradable to Android 11 (Go edition) soon. It features a 6.51-inch HD+ display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. A Qualcomm 215 processor powers the phone. The phone runs Android 10 Go Edition out-of-the-box, but HMD Global promises an upgrade to Android 11 Go Edition. The company says it is “ready for Android 11 Go Edition and beyond.” This means that the users can expect more upgrades after Android 11.
Dual Cameras, Fingerprint Sensor & More
For optics, the Nokia 1.4 comes with an 8MP+2MP dual camera setup and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. Nokia has included Google’s proprietory Camera Go app on the phone that offers features like portrait mode and night mode.
Internal storage on the phone is expandable up to 128GB via mircoSD card. The phone’s connectivity features are dual-SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, FM radio, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm audio jack. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the phone, which is placed on the side.
A 4,000mAh battery backs the smartphone with 5W charging support. Nokia touts that the battery on the phone can deliver up to 2 days of backup on a single charge.
