It was recently revealed that HMD Global is working on its first Android Go smartphone which will probably be named Nokia 1. Nokia 1 is expected to run the Android Oreo Go Edition, which is the lighter version of Oreo itself with lightweight versions of mainstream apps like Google Maps Go, Files Go, Google Go, etc. The Nokia 1 was expected to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress, this February. But a new leak has provided a glimpse of the Nokia 1.
A Baidu user has posted two images supposedly of the Nokia 1 smartphone. Both the images show only the back panel of the device, and the camera and LED lens on one image are covered by polycarbonate material, while in the other photo, the module is surrounded by glass. So, this means that the HMD Global is yet to finalize the Nokia 1 design. Apart from this, both the photos show that the phone may feature rounded corners and a polycarbonate back panel with the Nokia logo, placed symmetrically at the middle.
Till now, Nokia has not provided any official statement regarding the Nokia 1. However, an earlier leak suggested that it will be among the first Android Go smartphones and will be priced at RUB 5,990 (approximately Rs. 6,670). The leak also suggested the specs, quoting that the phone will have a 720p HD (720 x 1280 pixels) IPS display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of onboard storage.
