Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

The Nokia 1 is HMD’s latest entry level smartphone, which also supports the Android Go initiative from Google. The smartphone is one of the few entry smartphones from HMD and one that is aggressively priced at that. However, there is not much of a feature to talk about here, looking at the basic spec sheet. Nonetheless, the main goal here is to make smartphones that are affordable as possible to individuals with a tight budget while still offering a smooth experience with an optimized and new OS.

Nokia 1 Android Smartphone

Design and Display

As a budget smartphone that it is, not much of an effort is put into crafting the Nokia 1. The smartphone is short and robust making it chunky with too obvious bezels around. As expected it is also made of plastic but looks quite durable still. Taking a page from the old book, the Nokia 1 has a removable back panel, which is a rarity in today’s smartphones.

The Finnish company goes below the HD threshold for the Nokia 1 with its FWVGA display Which is archaic by recent technology standard. With a small size too measuring only 4.5-inch diagonally accompanied by a pixel density of 218 ppi.

Battery and Camera

With not much of a feature to offer, the Nokia 1 also does not have a large battery capacity. Boasting of only 2, 150mAh of power which is just about enough for 24hrs of usage. Also, you will find out that the battery is removable, an uncommon happening in most smartphones nowadays. This means you can always get an extra and swap out whenever you wish. Surely, fast charge is not also available as you have in high-end smartphones.

Taking pictures is not really a thing on entry level smartphone, and neither is it on the Nokia 1. Considering you have only a 5MP rear camera alongside a flash and a 2MP selfie camera. Therefore vivid pictures can not be assured on this smartphone even for social media activities.

Hardware and Software

Also this smartphone does have a great hardware but at least it is capable, Featuring a Quad-core MediaTek MT6737M that clocks only at 1.1GHz and a Mali-T720 GPU for handling graphics rendering and gaming graphics amongst others.

In addition, the Nokia 1 sports a 1GB RAM with an 8GB built-in storage which is thankfully expandable up to 128GB. Unless you’d have about only 5GB of space left after the Android 8.0 (Go edition) might have occupied the rest.

Nokia 1 Price and Availability

The Nokia 1 smartphone went on sale in April this year at a price of about £60 which is the equivalent of 30, 000 Naira. However, Nokia 1 is now available in Nigeria starting at a price of 26,500 Naira.

Nokia 1 Price in Kenya starts at around KSh 10,495. Likewise, Nokia 1 is also available in Ghana with price starting at GH₵ 360.
