According to Chinese website Sina, Nokia will host a press conference on January 7, and could release the tablet in China the very same day. As previously reported, the N1 will cost $249, thus being quite affordable for what it’s going to offer.
The N1 is a 6.9mm-thin aluminum-made tablet that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and comes with Nokia’s own Z Launcher (which is already available to download via Google Play). The slate sports a 7.9-inch, 1536 x 2048 pixel IPS display, and is powered by a quad-core, 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. Other features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of non-expandable memory. A 5300 mAh battery is also on board.
We’ve yet to find out where else the N1 will be available. Nokia said that it expects to expand sales beyond China anyway, so the tablet will most likely reach more markets not long after being released there. We’ll let you know when more details about this arrive.
