Nokia 1.4

HMD Global has today launched its latest budget phone – the Nokia 1.4 – that is targeted at the entry-level segment. The latest Nokia-branded offering starts at just €99 (~ $120) and will be up for grabs globally starting today in three color options – Fjord, Charcoal, and Dusk – and an equal number of memory configurations.

A decent first smartphone for kids and boomers alike

While the internal hardware is modest, the phone doesn’t look bad either and is targeted at first-time smartphone users. Nokia promises three years of security updates for its ultra-affordable phone and has also baked in built-in parental controls in the near-stock Android experience.

Talking about the specs, Nokia 1.4 offers a 6.51-inch HD+ display with a teardrop notch at the top, while a 4000 mAh battery has been fitted inside to keep the lights on. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 215 SoC keeps things running in tandem with up to 3 gigs of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage with scope for memory expansion up to 128GB via a microSD card.

Nokia says its latest budget phone is ready for Android 11 upgrade

Notably, the Nokia 1.4 comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor, a feature that was missing from its predecessor. And oh, there is a dedicated Google Assistant button as well. At the back, you’ll find an 8MP main camera sitting alongside a 2MP macro lens, while the selfie department will be handled by a 5MP front camera.

You also get access to camera tricks such as portrait mode and a dedicated Night mode as well. The phone runs Android 10 (Go Edition), but the company says it is ready to get the Android 11 update that will arrive soon.

I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
