The Nokia 1.4 will cost less than 100 euros

A new low cost smartphone is coming: the Nokia 1.4 offers a large battery and essential features at less than 100 euros

A very low price, less than 100 euros, for a smartphone suitable for those who do not want to give up a functional device without spending a fortune: this is the concept behind the Nokia 1.4. Essential features but know how to stand out, such as the large display and the large battery, aim to make the low-end phone of Nokia a good proposal for all budgets.

Comes almost a year after the announcement of its predecessor the leak with the information relating to the new low cost of the Finnish company, published online by the famous leaker Sudhanshu and reported by the site MySmartPrice. As for the Nokia 1.3, presented in March 2020 and made available on the market in the following month, the new phone should aim to integrate the features that we expect to find in the proposals of last generation. The strategy is, however, to target the cheapest versions of the features that, as a rule, contribute to raising the price, as may be 5G connectivity or multi-lens cameras equipped with ultra-high definition sensors. So, without missing a beat, Nokia 1.4 could offer a great user experience, without the glitz of the top of the range but also without limitations of any kind.

Nokia 1.4, technical characteristics of the new smartphone

Although from a launch price so low you can not expect top performance, the proposal to very low cost Nokia certainly knows how to be appreciated. And, if the leak information were to be respected, it does so by mounting a quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz, in tandem with a 1 GB RAM. Should the 16GB storage space prove too meager for your needs, you can expand it up to 128GB through the use of a microSD card.

The battery, equipped with a 4,000mAh capacity, also doesn't disfigure in front of its competitors in the range; for charging, there is then a microUSB 2.0 cable slot, a step back slightly from the USB-C ports that are quickly becoming the reference format. On the outside, however, what strikes the eye is the 6.5-inch HD+ LCD screen, in which the module for the front camera has been embedded through a teardrop housing.

Nokia 1.4, minimal equipment but with dual rear camera

Despite the extremely low price, Nokia 1.4 does not give up the photographic compartment even if minimal setting. On the back, in fact, there's a dual camera consisting of a primary 8MP sensor and a secondary 2MP sensor; for shots in low light conditions, there's also an LED flash to complete the module's set-up. On the front, selfies and video calls can take advantage of the full potential of the 5MP lens available.

Nokia 1.4, connectivity and other features

Certainly can not count on 5G, still reserved for higher-end phones, but the new entry level home Nokia takes advantage of all the possibilities offered by the Dual SIM slot (4G + 2G in NanoSIM format). To this, then, is also added Wi-Fi connectivity (with 2.4 GHz frequency band) and Bluetooth 4.2. As an operating system, Nokia's choice has fallen on Android 10, which completes the setup of the smartphone along with ambient light and proximity sensors, accelerometer, fingerprint reader and 3.5mm, so you can take full advantage of your wired headphones.

Nokia 1.4, design, cost and release time

Realized in blue and gray colors, the only two color variants available, Nokia 1.4 reaches the dimensions of 166.42×76.72×8.70mm. As announced, the launch price will be less than 100 euros but, at least for the moment has not yet been put on the calendar the official date of the presentation nor what will be all the target markets for the launch.
