We already know that HMD Global will be launching new Nokia smartphones at the MWC 2018 event on February 25. However, we don’t know which devices the Finnish company will launch. Thanks to some reports, we know that a flagship phone, couple of mid-range devices and an entry-level device will make an appearance. And the entry-level smartphone is the Nokia 1, which is now certified by Federal Commission with model number TA-1071. You might be wondering how we can say that the phone certified is Nokia 1? Well, recently a couple of renders of the Nokia 1 were leaked online, and the FCC listing shows the smartphone with similar dimensions.
So what next? Well, the phone’s launch is imminent, in-line with the rumours of MWC 2018 release of the Nokia 1. The FCC listing revealed that the Nokia 1 would come with dimensions of 136mm diagonal (5.36-inch), 50mm wide and 134mm tall. Earlier, the screen size of the smartphone is said to be around 5-inch, and the listing suggests the same. Do make a note that the 136mm diagonal length includes the bezels too.
Furthermore, the listing revealed the phone will feature 4G LTE support, Bluetooth 4.0 and 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi.
As per the reports making rounds on the web, the Nokia 1 will be the world’s first Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphone with entry-level hardware. It’s expected to feature a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. And it will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
Talking about the design, the Nokia 1 features the older Nokia Asha model design and expected to arrive in various colour options such as Black, Red, Blue, etc. The phone will have a single rear camera at the back, followed by a single front-facing camera. It’s expected to have at least 3000mAh battery.
