The cheapest Nokia smartphone will get a sequel, meet the Nokia 1 Plus
Although Nokia 1 will probably remain the cheapest Android smartphone launched by the Finnish company, it will soon receive a bigger brother – the Nokia 1 Plus. Unlike the Nokia which sports a 4.5-inch display, the Nokia 1 Plus has a bigger 5-inch screen with a better resolution.
The specs list also mentions the same amount of memory, 1GB RAM, and a very cheap, but slightly better, MediaTek processor. There's one other thing that differentiates the Nokia 1 Plus from its predecessor, it will run Android 9 Pie Go Edition, whereas the Nokia 1 is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition, the previous generation of Google's mobile OS.
Thanks to a picture that has just been leaked online, we also know that Nokia 1 Plus is quite different design-wise. Nokia dropped the rounded frames in favor of a more traditional rectangular shape.
We have yet to learn anything about the Nokia 1 Plus' availability and pricing, but we suspect it will be officially introduced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in later February, so we won't have to wait that long for that piece of information.
