HMD Global on Sunday announced a number of devices set to arrive for consumers in 2019.
This is the company’s most affordable 2.5G smartphone. The phone comes with a built-in app store and a month-long battery life.
It’ll be available in three colours, grey, black, and red. It will be available from next week for just $35.
Nokia 1 Plus
The company’s next device takes the form factor of the successful Nokia 1 and gives it a more premium look — it looks like a smaller Nokia 6.1.
The front of the phone is dominated by 5.45 inch IPS LCD display in 18:9 aspect ratio. At the rear, there’s an 8MP camera with autofocus, and up front a 5MP snapper.
The phone will run the Go Edition of Android 9.0 Pie.
It’ll be available in three colours, red, black and blue. And for the price? It’ll cost $99.
Nokia 4.2 & Nokia 3.2
With HMD Global using practically every number below 10 for a device, the Nokia 4.2 is the company’s new “mass market” Android phone.
It features a teardrop notch up front with a curved-edge screen in the corners. It has a Snapdragon 439 chipset, 5.7 inch HD screen, and dual rear camera.
The Nokia 3.2 is enormous in comparison, with a two day battery life from a 4000mAh battery and a 6.26 inch screen. The phone also features a rear fingerprint sensor.
These two devices share a few similarities too.
The Nokia 4.2 and 3.2 both have new notification lights on the side of the devices around the power key. Both devices also have a dedicated Google Assistant button and Face Unlock too.
The cameras are 13MP rear snappers, but the Nokia 4.2 features an additional depth sensor. Both phones have a scene recognition mode, and feature image stacking to improve detail.
The Nokia 3 will be available from $139 and the Nokia 4 from $169, in black and pink sand respectively. Both will begin shipping in April.
