HMD Global launched the entry-level Nokia 2 smartphone recently with a 4000mAh battery, but it chose to go with the Snapdragon 212 SoC and 1GB of RAM that doesn’t offer the best performance. Now Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-Review who was once popular for Nokia leaks says that Nokia is planning to introduce Nokia 1, another entry-level Android smartphone next year, but this time it is rumored to partner with Google for the Android Oreo (Go edition) that will be based on Android 8.1 (Oreo).
Nokia 1 - Android Go, 5990. HD, IPS, 1/8gb - пристойный корпус. Март. Пока сырой. У Хуавея такой же и цена 4990 или 5490, еще не решено— Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) December 26, 2017
As Google had announced at the launch of Oreo (Go edition), the OS is aimed at low-cost Android devices that have 512MB to 1GB of RAM that promises a smooth and efficient software experience, better data management and better saving. The Nokia 1 is said to feature 1GB of RAM with 8GB of internal storage and a HD IPS display.
Google already said that the Android Oreo (Go edition) is optimized to deliver 15% faster performance, security, data management and 2x more storage since it has fewer pre-installed apps and smaller app sizes with customized versions of Google apps.
Other details of the Nokia 1 are not known yet, but it is rumored to cost 5990 Ruble (US$ 104 / Rs. 6673 approx.) and is said to arrive in March 2018. It will likely come with 4G VoLTE support.
