HMD Global announced the latest model under the Android Go-powered Nokia 1 series with the Nokia 1.4. As its first new phone for 2021, the Nokia 1.4 is an upgrade from last year’s Nokia 1.3 with its 6.51-inch HD+ display and 4000mAh battery. Despite the upsize, however, you are still stuck with MicroUSB and 5w wired charging.
Like recently-launched Nokia phones, the Nokia 1.4 now adopts a circular camera module that houses two cameras: the same 8-megapixel snapper from the Nokia 1.3 is now accompanied by a 2-megapixel macro camera. The selfie snapper still remains the same at 5-megapixels. Also new to the Nokia 1.4 is the presence of a fingerprint scanner at the back.
Since it comes with stock Android 10 Go Edition (with a planned upgrade to Android 11 Go Edition in the future), the Nokia 1.4 uses Google’s camera algorithm for the Camera Go app, where it gets features like Night mode and Portrait mode.
Powering the Nokia 1.4 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 processor with three configurations: 1GB/16GB, 2GB/32GB, and 3GB/64GB.
Announced in 2019, the Snapdragon 215 is the first Snapdragon 2-series processor to use a 64-bit architecture, which helps it run around 50% better than the Snapdragon 210 that is found on the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000. In addition, it gets a GPU boost with Adreno 308–the same GPU found on older Snapdragon processors like the Snapdragon 425.
The Nokia 1.4 is priced at 99 Euros (~Php 5.8k) and should be available globally soon.
