HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has today announced that the new Nokia 1 Plus is now available to buy for an estimated selling price of Ksh 9,300. The Nokia 1 Plus is one of the first global Android 9 (Go edition) smartphones, it comes in two colours – blue and black and it packs a bigger 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.”
The Nokia 1 Plus brings a progressive and cutting-edge design to the value segment. Using innovative materials with 3D tooling, it has 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.
The phone has a bigger screen size with decreased dead bands all-round, this means more screen real-estate letting you view content in better quality. 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.
Get great details in your photos with the Nokia 1 Plus auto focus rear camera and the new front camera, comes enhanced with the ‘beautify feature’. ‘Beautify’ allows fans to perfect selfies even more, allowing them to enhance natural features by smoothing their appearance and bringing out their brightest side.
All this comes powered with an advanced 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, allows one to capture their favourite stories and share them across social media.
Now 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. You also get even more space for your 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.
