“Nokia 1 Plus would feature a qHD display, run Android 9 Pie and will have a quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.5GHz”
A new render for the Nokia 1 Plus smartphone has appeared online over the past weekend. Along with the image, the key specifications of Nokia 1 Plus have been revealed too, showing the handset will be part of the brand’s entry-level portfolio. This handset, as the name suggests, will succeed the Nokia 1 that was launched last year.
According to a Google Play Console listing of the Nokia 1 Plus, first spotted by Tiger Mobiles, the handset will feature just 1GB of RAM and will be powered by the MediaTek MT6739WW chipset and PowerVR GE8100 GPU. The listing mentions Android 9 Pie software will be onboard, though we can expect it to run Android Pie (Go Edition) instead thanks to the entry-level configuration. It is listed to come with a low-resolution qHD (480×960 pixels) display, though the screen size is not known. However, there is no information on the other features as well as the Nokia 1 Plus price or launched date.
Reportedly, the Nokia 1 Plus would sport a single frontal lens for the camera configuration. But the leak has not provided any information on the megapixel counts for both the rear and front cameras. The low-resolution display would be accompanied with thick bezels, which is not surprising considering this is an entry-level smartphone. In connectivity terms, the Nokia 1 Plus would likely support dual SIM functionality, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, etc.
HMD Global, the Finnish brand that holds licensing rights for the Nokia brand on smartphones, has booked an event on February 24th in Barcelona ahead of the MWC 2019. It is expected to introduce the high-end version of the Nokia 9 PureView flagship and Nokia 6.2 mid-ranger at the event.
