Nokia 1 alleged renders surface online; the Android Oreo Go phone could be unveiled at MWC 2018

Rumours have been flying around, of a possible low budget Android Go phone from Finnish smartphone maker HMD Global. Now it would seem that we have our alleged first look at a render of this device which is being reportedly called as the Nokia 1.

These renders were seen on the Chinese website Baidu showing the rear side of the device. Not much can be made out of the render except for the fact that the phone looks to have the same size as the Nokia 2.

The rumoured hardware specs of the Nokia 1 include a 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC, which again is similar to the Nokia 2.

However, while the Nokia 2 runs on near stock Android, the Nokia 1 will run on Android Go, which is actually optimised for low-end devices. The pricing of the Nokia 1 has been tipped to be around $95 (approx Rs 5,500) and a launch date of around March this year.

The real question is what will Nokia do with the Nokia 2, now that it has plans to unveil a similar device with a lower price point.

Guess we will have to wait until the MWC this year when reportedly the phone will be unveiled.
