Sarah Edge, General Manager for HMD Global in the UK, tells us…
Many people in the UK, especially amongst the older generation, are looking to upgrade from a feature phone or from a basic smartphone to one that offers them a superior experience, but don’t want to pay a premium price tag. The Nokia 1 Plus offers exactly this and we are excited to introduce a device which champions giving more people access to technology. With an upgraded rear camera, a bigger, brighter screen, and all the smartphone essentials and apps, the Nokia 1 Plus allows anyone to get and keep connected.
It’s available in three colours – Red, Blue and Black. However, at this price-point, you should also check out the Honor 7A, which for £10 more will give you better cameras, better screen, more memory and more storage.
