Nokia 1 may be launched in March as part of the Android Go program
Many smartphone companies promised to support Google's initiative to launch a lightweight version of its Android operating system, including Finnish company HMD Global.
It appears that the next entry-level Nokia-branded smartphone to be launched by HMD Global, the Nokia 1 will be part of the Android Go program, which means it will be available in emerging markets first and foremost.
Running a light version of Android Oreo, Nokia 1 will pack 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable storage. The HD (720p) display is nothing to be ashamed of considering this is an entry-level smartphone.
Nokia 1 is expected to make its debut in various markets (including Russia) sometime in March for around €80. Nokia 1 won't be the only Android Go device to go official next year; Huawei is working on a similar cheap smartphone as well, but details are scarce at the moment.
