Today HMD Global announces the Nokia 1 Plus, one of the first global Android 9 Pie (Go edition) smartphones, will be available in New Zealand from Wednesday 2 October. One of the first global Android 9 Pie (Go edition) smartphones, Nokia 1 Plus brings solid imaging in a high-quality Nokia design with a big screen. Now you can enjoy all your favourite apps and games, along with the latest Android (Go edition) features like Google Assistant Go.

 

James Robinson, Country Manager ANZ, HMD Global said “People who purchase smartphones outright are often making a large financial commitment. By working with Spark, we are increasing our offering in the entry-level segment in New Zealand to include an affordable device that offers the best of Android with a cutting-edge and reliable Nokia design. The Nokia 1 Plus combines quality and security at an exceptional price point.”

 

The Nokia 1 Plus brings a progressive and cutting-edge design to the value segment. Using innovative materials with 3D tooling, it achieves a gorgeous textured nano-pattern at the back that cups the Nokia 1 Plus all the way to the display. Its polycarbonate shell is inherently coloured rather than painted (colour runs through so doesn’t show white when nicked or scratched), providing a unique texture for a sophisticated look and feel.

 

With the Nokia 1 Plus, we are introducing a mid-segment screen size at exceptionally accessible price points. Decreased dead bands all-round means more screen real estate letting you view content in better quality, perfect for enjoying apps and shows. Nokia 1 Plus’s 5.45” IPS 18:9 full screen display means better viewing quality for things like browsing the web, streaming your favourite content and playing games. With its 8.55mm thinness, the Nokia 1 Plus brings comfort, modern looks and a quality feel in hand to more fans across the world.

 

Get great details in your photos with the Nokia 1 Plus auto focus rear camera and up your selfie game with the new front camera, which comes enhanced with the ‘beautify’ feature. ‘Beautify’ allows fans to perfect selfies even more, allowing them to enhance natural features by smoothing their appearance and bringing out their brightest side.

 

All this comes powered with an advanced MediaTek quad-core CPU, which is designed to deliver improved image quality with colour-adaptive noise reduction, offering a solid imaging experience in an accessible package for better pictures all round. The quad-core chipset has been tuned to capture stunning imaging in addition to being energy efficient. This, combined with the 8MP auto focus rear camera with LED flash and the 5MP front camera, allows fans to perfectly capture their favourite stories and share them across social media.

 

Now running the latest Android 9 Pie (Go edition), the Nokia 1 Plus is optimised to deliver a smooth and responsive experience that gets better over time. You also get even more space for your photos and videos with free unlimited high-quality photo storage with Google Photos1. Android 9 Pie (Go edition) apps are designed to run faster and consume less data.
 
Get full access to the Google Play store with optimised apps for Android (Go edition) appearing first for ease of search. Get all the essential apps like WhatsApp and Facebook and get access to the latest Google experiences such as Google Assistant Go, right out of the box.

 

The pure secure and up-to-date promise with Android 9 Pie (Go edition) is brought to the Nokia 1 Plus as well. It comes with no bloatware, skins or UI changes and no unnecessary pre-installed apps or hidden processes eating up battery life. The Nokia 1 Plus also brings top-of-the-line security features like verified boot and an accessible dashboard for tracking and monitoring data consumption to keep your information safe.

 

The Nokia 1 Plus in Black will be available from Wednesday 2 October at Spark with a $5 SIM, Skinny, Harvey Norman, Noel Leeming and JB Hi-Fi for $159 NZD.

Surely RAM pricing has dropped enough to make a basic device have a minimum of 2GB ? 1GB seems painful......

 

If you get a unit to review/trial, I'd be keen to have a play :)

And if its under the same "rules" as the higher end models, you cant use the SD card for apps. (Unless they've changed it since early this year) :-/

 

Altho, someone wanting to load up on apps etc isnt going to look at a low end device such as this. My main concern would be the speed/response time of when you are in apps. Not expecting blazing fast response, but if its worse than a $300 phone from 2 years ago, it'll be painful.

 

Be interesting to have a hands on with it.

This is available to all Android and iOS users. "high-quality" is the free for all tier. "original quality" is the full / native resolution. Original Quality comes free with selected Pixel devices. Although on the Nokia 1 Plus, you're unlikely to notice the difference.

Oh didn't know that changed to be free hq for all. Not exceptional then.

At $159 it makes sense to buy the n2 at $199.

Imo n1 price will be ocassionally dropped to compete against the ocassional special from other manufacturers.

Are you sure that's actually unlimited for all platforms or just free and limited?

I use my mobile primarily for music/podcasts and messaging/emails.

 

The recently announced pocketable Sony NW-ZX500 hi-def music player running android will be able to take care of my music/podcasts - including streaming, then something like this Nokia could easily pick email/messaging. This dual combo may be my future set up if the only flagship android phone options going forward are phablets (which seems to be the way the phone world is going).

Yup it's unlimited, but 'high quality' caps / reduces the picture / video quality. Selecting 'original quality' will count towards your google one/drive storage allocation.
