Nokia 1: Premium features, low entry price

The Nokia 1 has arrived in Kenya and the new phone is reminding us just why we love Nokia’s line of mobile devices. The brand’s latest release is a budget Android device aimed at those looking to enter the smartphone world without compromising on quality.

Nokia 1 runs of the latest Android Oreo Go-Edition, a world’s first by Nokia courtesy of the partnership arrangement with Google. Nokia 1 delivers a premium smartphone experience through Google’s Go-Edition apps found on the Play store and which are designed to run fast on the device yet light on data usage. This ensures that you can fully optimize your internal storage capacity and even processing capacity without affecting functionality or experiencing lag.

Tailored for smartphones with 1GB RAM or less, the new apps optimized to run faster and smoother and include Gmail Go, Google Go, Maps Go, YouTube Go as well as the Google assistant for Android.

This will come as a relief, as you will have more of the 8GB internal storage on Nokia 1 to take advantage of – a problem that is faced by other entry level smartphones.  If you need additional storage, you can utilize the Micro SD card slot that can carry up to 128 of additional capacity.

For only Ksh 9,500 Nokia 1 is a compact but impressive Android smartphone with a 4.5 inch display, quad-core processor juiced up by a 2150 mAh battery, 1 GB of Ram, 5Mp rear camera with a 2Mp front camera as well as 4G connectivity.

Also unlike most phones today, the Nokia one is customizable by way of their Nokia’s Xpress-On covers that allows you to express your personality in a myriad of fun and bold colours.

The Nokia one is now available at all retail stores.
