HMD Global has launched Nokia 1.4, an entry-level Android Go smartphone. HMD Global touts the Nokia 1.4 to be the perfect family-friendly device for families that spend more time at home. It also says the phone has a pretty robust construction, so it can “survive falls.”
The Nokia 1.4 offers a 6.51-inch HD+ edge-to-edge screen and features a teardrop-notch. On the back, the phone carries dual cameras, where 8MP is a primary snapper and a secondary 2MP macro camera. These two cameras are housed inside a circular module and a dual-LED flash is also sitting inside the same arrangement. The dual-camera setup is coupled with the Camera Go app by Google that lets you take pictures even in low light conditions. You can also use Night Mode, HDR, and Portrait Mode.
The Nokia 1.4 runs Android 10 (Go Edition), which is a stripped-down version of Android designed for low-end phones with 2GB RAM or less. The phone comes with a promise of receiving at least three years of security updates and it may also receive two years of Android OS upgrade. In the press release, HMD Global has already promised Android 11 (Go Edition), so expect the device will also be upgraded to Android 12 in the future.
