Nokia 1.4 is not among the six phones HMD Global introduced earlier this month, but it’s still a very new device. The affordable smartphone made its debut on the market back in February, but it took more than two months to arrive in the US.
That’s not too bad considering many Nokia phones are never released in the US, although things certainly improved in the last year or so. Anyway, starting this weekend, the Nokia 1.4 is available for purchase in the country for just $120, a fairly decent price for what’s under the hood.
Nokia 1.4 features a massive 6.5-inch HD+ display and a huge 4,000 mAh battery. It’s even got a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a piece of hardware rarely included in such cheap devices. The bad news is Nokia 1.4 is equipped with a rather weak 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.
Finally, the device packs an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 2-megapixel selfie snapper. Nokia 1.4 runs Android 10 Go, but it’s supposed to be updated to Android 11 Go in the future. Although it might not be the best 2021 budget phone in this price range, it’s certainly an affordable one.
