- HMD Global has announced a new Android Go smartphone, called the Nokia 1.4.
- The phone features a 6.51-inch HD+ display, dual rear cameras, and a 4000mAh battery.
- Disappointingly, the phone will ship with Android 10 Go Edition out of the box.
Finnish smartphone brand HMD Global today announced the Nokia 1.4, a follow-up to last year's Nokia 1.3. While it isn't a massive step-up from the Nokia 1.3, it does come with a few upgrades that make it HMD Global's best Android Go phone yet.
The new Nokia 1.4 sports a 6.51-inch HD+ screen with a waterdrop notch, housing a 5MP selfie camera. While the display is now much larger, the phone runs on the same 28nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 quad-core chipset as the Nokia 1.3. HMD Global has paired the chip with up to 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
In the camera department, the entry-level phone offers a dual-camera setup on the back with an 8MP main sensor and a 2MP macro lens. It uses Google's Camera Go app, which means users will be able to access features such as portrait and night modes. The phone also includes a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 4000mAh battery, FM radio, and a dedicated Google Assistant button. While the phone will ship with Android 10 Go Edition out of the box, HMD Global says it is "ready for Android 11 Go Edition and beyond."
The Nokia 1.4 will be available globally starting today in Fjord, Charcoal, and Dusk color options. In Europe, the phone has been priced at €99 for the base 1GB/16GB version.
The Nokia 2.4 is a budget-friendly Android One phone that offers a large 6.5-inch display and up to 2 days of battery life. It also has a modern design and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
