Budget-Friendly Nokia 1.4 Headed to Kenya Soon


HMD Global will be availing the Nokia 1.4 for the Kenya market in the near future.

The 1 series is Nokia’s entry level device, and is on its fourth iteration since it launched first about three years go.

Unlike the first models, this one has grown in size. It features a 6.51” screen, which is the new norm for modern smartphones. The display, of course, is capped at HD+ (720 x 1600 pixels) resolution, but that is expected because it is a budget offering.

Other features include a dual main cam setup that should be serviceable for ordinary shots of the world around you (8 MP and 2 MP). Selfies are taken care of with a 5 MP shooter.

Other features are quite pedestrian but you should remember the phone will not cost more than KES 10000, or thereabouts.

For instance, RAM starts at 1 GB (that is according to the manufactrer’s list of specs, but since it runs Android Go Edition, we expect this to be a mistake because Google raised the bar for Go devices to ship with at least 2 GB of RAM and not a single one as we have come ti expect from the past). Storage options start from 16 GB to 64 GB.

We expect the 2/16 GB model to sell in Kenya.

Oh, it has a fingerprint sensor on the back too.

The package is juiced by a 4000 mAh cell.

As said, the software side is served by Android 10 Go Edition, which will then be updated to Android 11.

We will remind you when the device hits local store shelves.
