Nokia 1 should be one of the first smartphones with the line Android Go. This is an easy version of Android Oreo, which Google introduced a few months ago. HMD Global is not the only company that is preparing a cheap phone with this system. Huawei is preparing its cheap representative. The debut of the smartphone should take place in March.
The operating system Android Go was announced during the conference I / O 2017. The first devices with a shortened Android Go will debut early next year, this event should take place with the release of Android 8.1 Oreo. But the exact information Google has not yet reported. We did not even know which OEM partners are going to prepare phones for this system. But today we learned that one of the first will be Nokia 1.
Nokia 1 should become one of the first smartphones with Android Go operating system, this information was provided to us by a reliable source. According to him, the phone HMD Global will cost only 5,990 Russian rubles, that is, only 365 rubles. The exact specification is not known, but the rumors suggest that it will be equipped with an IPS screen with HD resolution, that is 720 x 1280 pixels and 1 GB of RAM, and the user will receive only 8 GB of internal memory. The premiere is scheduled for March. A similar device is also being prepared by Huawei, but the characteristics and price of this device are still a mystery.
The smartphone Nokia 1, most likely, will be presented during the exhibition MWC 2018 in Barcelona. It will be held at the end of February. Probably, then we will also see a model from Huawei and a number of other smartphones with Android Go. Personally it seems to me that the technical characteristics of Nokia 1 will have much in common with Nokia 2. If this is the case, then we expect to see the following technical data.
