The Nokia 1 Entry-Level 4G Smartphone Preview

After the Nokia 7 plus and Nokia 1 launch, we had some time to try out the Nokia 1 smartphone. Here is our preview of the Nokia 1 – an entry-level 4G smartphone that runs on Android Oreo Go Edition. Find out why Nokia thinks it will be the perfect smartphone for feature phone users to upgrade to!


The Nokia 1 Entry-Level 4G Smartphone

The Nokia 1 is an entry-level 4G smartphone that runs on the latest Android Oreo Go edition. The Go Edition is a version of Android optimised for devices with 1GB RAM or less, offering a smooth and responsive experience at an affordable price.

The Nokia 1 is runs on a quad-core processor, with 4G connectivity and dual SIM support. It is powered by a 2,150 mAh battery, and a power-efficient IPS display.

Personalised Style

Available in Warm Red and Dark Blue, Nokia 1 can change its look thanks to the Xpress-on covers which come in a range of vibrant colours. These polycarbonate covers simply click on and off in seconds, allowing you to personalise the Nokia 1 to your preference. 

Android Oreo Go Edition

Tailored for devices with 1 GB RAM or less, Android Oreo Go Edition comes with a new range of apps from Google designed to run faster while consuming less data.

Optimised to be smooth and fast, these include Google Go – a web search app, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go and Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), to quickly send messages, make calls, set alarms and do more, simply by using your voice.

With fewer pre-installed and much lighter apps on Android Oreo Go Edition, you get 2x more storage out of the box compared with Android Nougat.
