This is an entry level smartphone which runs the latest version of Android.

The Nokia 1 Android Go edition has been launched at Rs 5,499, and will be available for purchase starting on March 28.

The company would be focusing on participating in bundled offers by telecom operators to drive market share growth, with an aim to drive down the price of smartphones and encourage feature, or basic, phone users to upgrade, said Ajey Mehta, head of India at HMD Global. This is a dual SIM phone with 4G connectivity and packs in a 2150 mAh battery.

There are already plenty of full-fledged Android phones available in India at around Rs 5499, so the Nokia 1 will have its work cut out for it. The device runs on the Android Oreo Go Edition, a lightweight Android OS by Google specifically for devices with RAM less than, equal to 1GB. The new smartphone is one of few phones released under the Go campaign. The smartphone is equipped with a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor paired with Adreno 304 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB storage capacity. HMD here unveiled four smartphones, Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, new Nokia 6 and Nokia 1, in the price range of €85 to €749.


HMD Global which is also the leading feature phone manufacturer in India has designs to offer a compelling first smartphone experience to Indians. Each costs an additional Rs. 450 and comes in shades of Azure and Grey or Yellow and Pink.

"There are more than 1.3 billion feature phone users around the world, many from markets in Asia and Africa". It also has microSD card support which can be extended up to 128 GB.

The dual SIM Nokia 1 is powered by a 2,150mAh battery and comes with 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz), Bluetooth 4.2 and Global Positioning System as the standard connectivity options.

It further includes a 5-megapixel camera at the back with a fixed focus lens and an LED flash. Nokia 1 users will also get a year of accidental damage protection from Servify and to claim this benefit, users have to open a Kotak 811 saving account with a deposit of 1000 rupees. The phone comes with the proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, and a G-sensor. We are sure that, Nokia 1 buyers will also get 20% off on booking their first ride via redBus India.
