HDM Global continues to keep the Nokia brand alive and recently announced a new entry-level Android smartphone under the 100 euro mark.
A phone designed for the family. This is the approach that HDM Global has chosen to highlight for this new smartphone sold at 99 euros. The Nokia 1.4 would then be the smartphone that would make the best use of Android Go by meeting both personal and professional uses.
The characteristics of Nokia 1.4
With dimensions of 166.4 x 76.7 x 8.7 mm, the Nokia 1.4 sports a 6.51-inch IPS panel for an FHD + definition of 720 × 1600 pixels, a resolution of around 269 ppi on a ratio of 20 : 9. From the outset, therefore not sure that this large screen is suitable for the whole family.
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 chip, engraved in 28 mm, which positions the terminal on the entry level. This SoC is made up of four Cortex-A53 CPUs clocked at 1.3 GHz and an Adreno 308 GPU for the graphics part. RAM side, three configurations are available depending on the region with 1, 2, or 3 GB.
Regarding storage, we also find three variants depending on the country of marketing with 16, 32 or 64 GB. Important point: a microSD card reader is part of the game. Another detail to note: in Europe, the device can accommodate two SIM cards, but do not count on 5G. A jack is present as is a fingerprint reader on the back.
The built-in battery is 4000 mAh and HDM Global communicates on a two-day autonomy. The manufacturer specifies that these endurance tests include “active use of a device 5 hours a day with a new battery. Examples of use: games, video streaming, calls, sending text messages, internet browsing and use of applications (social networks, news, browsing and music) ”.
Android Go at the heart of Nokia 1.4
As we know, Android Go is intended for entry-level devices and the smartphone comes with Android 10 GB which can be updated to Android 11 GB. Moreover, like the Pixels, three years of updates safety are guaranteed on this device.
But it is above all the Camera Go application that is highlighted. The latter makes it possible to use the two rear sensors, the main one being 8 megapixels and the second, dedicated to the macro, 2 megapixels. The selfie camera offers a definition of 5 megapixels.
Recently Google has integrated flagship features today implemented in its Pixel range. This is particularly the case of the night mode announced last October and resulting from artificial intelligence algorithms capable of illuminating the shot while erasing digital noise. Note also the integration of portrait mode with a bokeh type blur effect.
