HMD Global has announced that the new Nokia 1 Plus is now available for purchase for an estimated selling price of Ksh 9,300. One of the first global Android 9 (Go edition) smartphones, Nokia 1 Plus brings solid imaging in a Nokia design with a big screen.
Mark Misumi, HMD Business Manager East Africa said: ‘’With our philosophy of investing where it matters most and delivering the best of Android, we aim to offer high quality products to our consumers ensuring that they have the best possible experience with this latest addition to our portfolio. Nokia 1 Plus combines a big display, solid imaging, and aspirational design with a unique nano-pattern finish at the back, as well as running on the latest Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) OS.”
Using innovative materials with 3D tooling, the Nokia 1 Plus achieves a gorgeous textured nano-pattern at the back that cups the Nokia 1 Plus all the way to the display. Its polycarbonate shell is inherently coloured rather than painted (colour runs through so doesn’t show white when nicked or scratched), providing a unique texture for a sophisticated look and feel.
Decreased dead bands all-round means more screen real-estate letting one view content in better quality, perfect for enjoying apps and shows. Nokia 1 Plus’s 5.45” IPS 18:9 full screen display means better viewing quality for things like browsing the web, streaming your favourite content and playing games. With its 8.55mm thinness, the Nokia 1 Plus brings comfort, modern looks and a quality feel in hand to more fans across the world.
Users also get great details in their photos with the Nokia 1 Plus auto focus rear camera and improve their selfie game with the new front camera, which comes enhanced with the ‘beautify feature’ which allows users to perfect selfies even more, allowing them to enhance natural features by smoothing their appearance and bringing out their brightest side.
Nokia 1 Plus is powered with MediaTek quad-core CPU, which is designed to deliver improved image quality with colour-adaptive noise reduction, offering a solid imaging experience in an accessible package for better pictures all round. The quad-core chipset has been tuned to capture stunning imaging in addition to being energy efficient. This, combined with the 8MP auto focus rear camera with LED flash and the 5MP front camera, enables the user to perfectly capture their favourite stories and share them across social media.
Running the latest Android 9 Pie (Go edition), the Nokia 1 Plus is optimised to deliver a smooth and responsive experience that gets better over time. One also gets more space for photos and videos with free unlimited high-quality photo storage with Google Photos. Android 9 Pie (Go edition) apps are designed to run faster and consume less data.
The Nokia 1 Plus comes in two colours – blue and black and also comes with a 16GB Memory card inbox in Kenya.
