This might be the Nokia 1, an Android Go phone

Peter, 09 January 2018

This might be the first glimpse of the Nokia 1, key word being might. The device is rumored to be the most affordable smartphone in HMD’s line-up, with a price of around $95/€80 and a launch date somewhere in March.

Rumors make it sound pretty similar to the Nokia 2 with a 720p IPS screen and modest memory capacity, 1GB of RAM and 8GB storage. A metal frame and polycarbonate body hark back to the Nokia glory days.

Interestingly, the Nokia 1 is reported to run Android Go, the lighter version of the mobile OS that is optimized for low-power devices. The Nokia 2 runs full Android.

The two leaked images show noticeably different designs – either HMD is still exploring options or at least one of these shows something else. If this is real, the unveiling should be at the MWC so you’ll need to have some patience.

Same with other players on the market as well. Do they built every each one of the devices in their HQ? Every company mass production with super low cost to gain highest margin possible eg: Apple
