Nokia (owned by HMD Global) has done an excellent job of updating its Android line equipment. The most funny thing is that Android 10 will come to an equipment almost “ancestral”: Nokia 1.
This is one of the most modest and inexpensive devices ever launched by Nokia in 2018. Nokia’s product director, Juho Sarvikas, said with pride that Nokia 1 will receive Android 10 Go Edition.
This is a lighter version of Android 10, so that Nokia 1’s weak specs can take advantage of the new version of the operating system. So far, the update is being sent to 13 countries, where Portugal is not included for now.
The humble specifications of Nokia 1
- 4.5-inch IPS LCD screen
- 480 x 854 resolution
- 1.1 GHz MediaTek MT6737M processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 GB of internal storage
- 5 MP rear camera
- 2 MP front camera
- Removable 2150 mAh battery
- Originally released on Android 8.1 Oreo
- Launch price: 100 euros
Compared to devices of the same value today, the Nokia 1’s specs are practically ridiculous. However, it is a device that continues to be updated, through Nokia’s efforts. Of course, the fact that it is an Android Go device also helps.
Anyway, this kind of situation just leaves us wondering: how is it that a Samsung, Huawei or even Xiaomi are more concerned with creating their customizations than updating Android from scratch more often?
We take the opportunity to ask you the question: would you rather have a device with 3-4 Android updates and less “personality” or keep things as they are? Tell us in the comments box!
