Entry-level Nokia 1 Plus with 18:9 display and 1GB RAM to reportedly launch at MWC 2019

“The Nokia 1 Plus will most likely be powered by the MediaTek MT6739WW chipset along with 1GB of RAM”

HMD Global is expected to showcase a slew of Nokia phones at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress, including Nokia 9 PureView, Nokia 6.2 and possibly a few more. Now, a new report coming in from Droid Shout citing its sources claims that Nokia will also release a mysterious smartphone carrying the model number TA-1152 along with the others at the MWC. Furthermore, it is believed that this smartphone is being aimed specifically at the Indian market and will launch in the country soon after the global announcement in Barcelona. The report claims this device to be the Nokia 1 Plus.


The likely successor to the Android Go-based Nokia 1 (first impressions), the Nokia 1 Plus is expected to come powered by MediaTek MT6739WW chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. There’s no confirmation regarding its internal storage or the presence of an expandable storage slot, but reports claim that it will feature an 18:9 display with a resolution of 480 x 480 and a pixel density of 213ppi. Considering it will be focused towards the Indian users, we expect it to be priced similarly to its predecessor. However, unlike the Nokia 1, which runs on the Android Go, the upcoming smartphone is said to run on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

There’s no information regarding the specifications of the front and rear cameras but the phone will come with dual-SIM support and the usual Connectivity features including GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a Micro-USB port. The MWC 2019 is scheduled to begin on the February 25th, with Nokia’s event to be held on day 0 on 24th, so we’ll need to wait till then to see what the brand has in store for us.
