HMD Global is planning to launch a new ultra-affordable smartphone, which seems to be the successor of the Nokia 1.3. It will be called Nokia 1.4 and will have basic specs and a low-low price of under €100.
The new phone will have a quad-core CPU at 1.3 GHz rates. That looks like the very same Qualcomm QM215 platform for affordable phones, but Nokia might have decided to go with something different. Apart from that, there are updates on every other front. The camera on the back is possibly a dual setup, and the battery has got a massive upgrade to 4,000 mAh. Along with that, the Nokia 1.4 will boast a bigger screen as well – a 6.51” LCD.
The new phone is slated to will support dual SIM variants but only one of the cards will work with 4G networks, the other slot is for 2G – if there are no such networks anymore, users should use the hybrid slot to put a MicroSD card, because the internal memory of 16 GB does not sound enough. Interestingly enough, it will have a fingerprint scanner. We are yet to ascertain whether the scanner will be on the back or side.
The Nokia 1.3 was introduced back in March 2020 so we expect the new Nokia 1.4 to stick to the timeline and arrive in the first quarter of the year.
