Nokia refreshes its entry-level with Nokia 1 Plus, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2
Nokia continues to offer a wide range of phones at the affordable spectrum, with the announcement of a big refresh at Mobile World Congress 2019.
Joining the party is the Nokia 1 Plus. This embraced Nokia’s Xpress-on covers, letting you easily change the back cover as easily as you’d change your socks. The Nokia 1 Plus is an Android Go phone, so it’s designed to be cheap – expect to pay around $99 for it.
Running Android 9 Pie Go Edition, you get a 5.45-inch display, MediaTek hardware with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage.
The Nokia 3.2 moves things into a slightly more competitive area and you get a lot more for your $149. It comes with a 6.26-inch display which is HD+, there’s a Qualcomm 400 series Snapdragon with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage – although there’s a 3GB/32GB version too.
The Nokia 3.2 has a water drop style notch so you’re getting a look that’s very 2019 and it has an light-up power button, which can light up when you get notifications, a Google Assistant button and a 13-megapixel camera. It will run Android 9 Pie.
Finally there’s the Nokia 4.2. The Nokia 4.2 is a little more serious. It comes with a 5.71-inch HD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 with 2/3GB RAM and 16/32GB storage with support for microSD up to 400GB.
The design of the Nokia 4.2 is pretty smart with glass front and back, again with a light-up power button to give you notifications. It has a dual camera this time with a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor for depth – for all those blurred background shots. Again, it runs Android 9 Pie.
The Nokia 4.2 will cost from $169.
Of course, most of the attention is on the Nokia 9 PureView with its five cameras – which you can read more about here.
