We’re all looking forward to Nokia’s long-awaited return on the smartphone market and it seems that it could happen sooner than expected! Apparently, a HMD Global-made device went through certification last week and we have all the details about it!
Going under the name Nokia E1, it’s the first entry-level smartphone released using the Finnish brand and it should make its official debut during the Mobile World Congress, scheduled for the end of February, alongside a couple of newer Nokia handsets, according to the rumors.
As mentioned earlier, the Nokia E1 will be far from a high-end model, since it should come with a 5.2 or 5.2-inch display, rocking just a 720p resolution, while the type of panel this phone will be using is still a mystery.
Under the hood, it could pack a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 425 chip, with a quad-core configuration, running at 1.4 GHz and aided by 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 308 GPU. In terms of storage, it will have just 16 GB of space, which is relatively low, so we’re looking forward to seeing a microSD card slot, allowing users to add a few more gigs of space.
Finally, the camera setup will consist in a 13 MP rear-mounted snapper and a 5 MP snapper on the front. We don’t expect impressive performances from this point of view, but otherwise, the setup is more than enough for an entry-level handset.
We will be back with more details about this Nokia smartphone as soon as they’re available!
