HMD Global persists and signs with its entry-level smartphones. After a very disappointing Nokia 1.3, the company is making some adjustments with its Nokia 1.4.
The Nokia 1.4 is therefore an entry-level smartphone, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 SoC which should not be a thunderbolt. The chip is associated with 3 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of internal storage (expandable by microSD) in its most advanced version, but some versions include 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of memory.
The screen measures 6.51 inches, adopts a definition of 720 x 1600 pixels and a 20: 9 aspect ratio. The 5MP front camera is housed in a teardrop-shaped notch, while the rear camera unit consists of an 8MP wide-angle module and a 2MP macro lens. A round and rather elegant photo block that breaks with the very basic look of the Nokia 1.3. This evolution is a little more aesthetically worked.
The Nokia 1.4 also has a 4000 mAh battery, and we can hope for a satisfactory endurance for this mobile which should not be too greedy in energy. On the other hand, the Nokia 1.3 and its 3000 mAh battery were very poor in this exercise, earning the rare rating of 1 star.
Still below the 100 € mark
The product dimensions are 166.4 x 76.7 x 8.7mm, and its weight is 178g. Entry-level requires, the phone does not offer NFC, is content with Bluetooth 4.2 and a microUSB 2.0 port. This year, a fingerprint reader appears on the back. The terminal is installed under Android 10 in the Android Go version, for a certain lightness of the system.
The smartphone is already available on the brand’s website, starting at € 99. It is available in fjord blue, anthracite black and twilight purple. And it should theoretically be more convincing than version 1.3 when it goes through our lab.
