Nokia 1.3 – Cheap entry-level Go-phone at Argos

Announced earlier in the year, the Nokia 1.3 is now available to buy for just £79.99 from Argos.

Although available in three colours (Cyan, Sand and Charcoal), Argos are only selling the Charcoal one by the looks of it.

It’s obviously SIM-free, but is dual-SIM capable and will do 4G.

Up front, a 19:9 5.71″ TFT LCD 1520 x 720 display (295 ppi) and a 5 megapixel front camera. There’s a rear 8 megapixel camera and you get an microSD slot for boosting the 16GB on-board storage.

Equipped with 1GB of RAM it runs the “Go Edition” of Android 10 so you’ll find Google apps geared towards less memory.

Other specs include 2.4GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and a 3000mAh battery. It’s powered by a 1.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. Oh, and there’s a microUSB charging port and 3.5mm audio.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, told us..

The Nokia 1 was an important step for us in offering an accessible Android experience to more fans across the world.

Our close partnership with the team at Google didn’t only allow us to launch one of the first smartphones running Android 10 (Go edition), but it also allowed us to be among the first to debut the all new Camera Go app. We’ve combined this with our signature AI-powered low-light image fusion technology to give people the opportunity to capture even more memories, from dusk till dawn, without worrying about running out of storage. Our goal was to build on what an affordable smartphone can deliver, without compromising on modern tech essentials.
