HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has launched the Nokia 1 budget smartphone that features the latest Android 8.0 Oreo (Go edition).

The Nokia 1 will go on sale from March 28 along with several launch offers.

The phone comes in Warm Red and Dark Blue colors. The dual-SIM phone will support 4G LTE and come with a 5-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and a 2-megapixel camera.

In an official statement, while launching the device, Ajay Mehta, the Vice President India of HMD Global said that "There are more than 1.3 billion feature phone users around the world, many from markets in Asia and Africa". Although these are absolutely low-end specs, Android Go, which is designed for devices with less than 1GB of RAM, should work fine. The device comes with redesigned and fewer apps, which gives the user two times more free storage as compared to Android Nougat.

The Nokia 7 Plus will arrive in stores from May 2, and those buying one will be treated to an exclusive Google Home Mini offer as part of the deal during the first month of availability via selected stores. It brings back the iconic "Xpress-On" covers which were very popular on older Nokia phones of yesteryear. The key feature of the Nokia 1, the company's most affordable handset, is the ability to use Xpress On two-tone polycarbonate exchangeable covers that lets users personalise its looks. Nokia 1 packs 8GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). The smartphone offers 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The battery - a 2,150mAh with a claimed standby of up to 15 days - will be removable as well. That includes Gmail Go, Google Maps Go and so on, which happens to be lightweight versions of their regular apps and are therefore less hardware intensive.

Other goodies include a 20% discount on your first ride through RedBus and Servify's 12-month Accidental Damage Insurance if you open a Kotak 811 savings account.

Reliance Jio customers will get a cashback of INR 2200 ($34) and also 60GB of data. Each costs an additional Rs. 450 and comes in shades of Azure and Grey or Yellow and Pink.
