The Nokia 1.4 is the latest entry level smartphone from HMD Global to launch in Kenya. This phone is available in the country for Ksh 12,000. At this price, the Nokia 1.4 will be competing with some other devices from Infinix, Tecno, Xiaomi and even Huawei. With most of its smartphones, HMD Global rarely focuses on just the specifications but rather aims to give the best user experience. This means that the specs tend to be balanced to ensure the user experience is good but the software experience is also fine tuned to be better.
The Nokia 1.4 promises a lot and brings with it the reliability that we have come to associate Nokia smartphones with. These include quality hardware and guarantees for software support with at least 2 years of major OS updates.
Speaking on the Nokia 1.4, Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager Kenya & East Africa, HMD Global said “We wanted to create a reliable and enjoyable experience that truly benefits all family members without adding to any household financial pressures.”
