Since introducing the Nokia 6, the new Nokia has grown its catalog of Android smartphones at a good pace. However, the manufacturer is expected to launch the Nokia 9 as the highlight, the true top of the range. The same happens in the lower part. There are signs that the Nokia 2 will be accompanied by the Nokia 1, the most basic and economic of the new Nokia that will also incorporate as a great novelty Android Go.

Currently, the catalog of Nokia smartphones with Android operating system offers the Nokia 3, 5, 6 and Nokia 8 in India, but also has the Nokia 7 focused on the Asian market and the newly introduced Nokia 2, the cheapest in the present. As we have already indicated, all eyes are focused on the Nokia 9, a model planned for the beginning of 2018 and that will be placed on the throne of the Finnish as the true flagship that everyone expected with the announcement of the Nokia 6. Despite everything, Nokia does not forget the access market, the cheapest models.

This is elucidated by one of the tweets on Twitter in which the journalist captures the most basic details of the model but which portrays with great precision the role that the smartphone will play. And it is that the Nokia 1 will not surprise for its benefits but for its low price and for being the first Nokia with Android Go.

Basic hardware optimized for Android Go

This last detail is one of the most important since Android Go is called to be the Google project focused on optimizing its software platform for cheap smartphones, the range of access, in which Android usually chokes. This version presented the same day we officially met Android 8.1 Oreo, includes the also announced Google apps, reduced and optimized for low-end hardware to consume few resources. We refer to Files Go, Gmail Go, Google Go, YouTube Go, Google Maps Go, Google Assistant Go, Google Play, Gboard, and Chrome.

Features of the Nokia 1

Although the information offered by Eldar Murtazin is focused on revealing the existence of the model, its message also includes some glimpses of the characteristics of the Nokia 1. As expected, by price and the presence of Android Go, your hardware will be limited. As much as they dictate the 8 GB of internal memory, the Giga of RAM and the screen with resolution HD, of which it has not transcended its size.

Price of the Nokia 1

As we advanced, the price of the Nokia 1 will be another of the great attractions of the model. Focused for those who want a smartphone with no pretensions that the most basic functions but at a cost as small as possible, Murtazin puts on the table information about the price of Nokia 1. In the first instance, the Russian says that its official price will move between 69 and 75 euros and will debut sometime in March 2018.

Thus, the Nokia 1 will be between 10 and 15 euros more expensive than the Nokia 3310 of 2017, but in return will offer a richer experience of use with Android Go and the compatible apps that it brings behind. Undoubtedly, a strategy focused on emerging markets in which this type of models has great impact.
