HMD’s newest budget smartphone sports a 6.51 inch, 1600 x 720 pixel IPS LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 processor, and a starting price of €99 (about $120 US).

The Nokia 1.4 is available in select markets starting today and it’ll ship with Android 10 Go Edition software, but HMD says it’ll receive an updated to Android 11 Go Edition in the future.

The smartphone has the same processor as last year’s Nokia 1.3, but it has a bigger, higher-resolution display, a larger battery, and support for more memory and storage… at least on some models.

An entry-level version still comes with a paltry 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, but HMD will also offers 1GB/32GB and 3GB/64GB configurations.

The phone measures 166.42 x 76.72 x 8.7mm and weighs about 178 grams, and packs dual rear cameras (8MP with auto-focus plus 2MP macro) and a 5MP front-facing camera. It has a 4,000 mAh battery and the phone features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD card reader, and support for 4G LTE Cat 4 networks.

It’s not just the processor and RAM that make it clear this is a budget phone though. The Nokia 1.4 also has some antiquated specs including a micro USB port, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.2. The phone can also only use microSD cards up to 128GB in size.

  1. 802.11n, 1gb RAM, and 16gb storage. Really surprising to see these specs in 2021. Sure it costs $99, but who is this for? These are the kind of specs I would find acceptable if I was lost in a foreign country, and I needed a phone to make my way to the closest embassy.

    Good luck with that Android 11 update, none of the owners are going to have the storage space to even download it.

    Neat to see a $99 price tag, but that model isn’t equipped appropriately for anyone, and this certainly isn’t the model that people will be buying. We don’t know yet what the 3gb/64gb model will cost, but I think its a safe bet that it won’t come with better Wifi hardware, or SOC. I would guess the highest model will be closer to $200 or more?

    If we’re looking at the higher model, I’d much rather look at the Samsung A31 for $249. It has a much more powerful Octa-core SOC, 1080 x 2400 screen, 5000mAh battery, 4gb/128gb, and best of all it has 802.11ac support. Better in every way. Sure they don’t have a $99 model, so Nokia wins the race to the bottom, but Samsung wins in the price point that people will actually be buying.

  2. I am not convinced that they’re going to upgrade those to Android 11 Go.
    It requires 2GB of RAM and the base model comes with only 1GB.
