Leaked renders reveal entry-level Nokia 1 with Android Go and Nokia 7+ toting Android One

Since HMD Global announced it was bringing the Nokia brand back to life and unveiled a bunch of new phones, culminating with the flagship Nokia 8, we’ve been waiting to see what the second act would bring during MWC 2018. Thanks to a certain well-known leak artist, Evan Blass, we have a sneak-peak at the Nokia 1 and Nokia 7+ phones that will be announced at the upcoming trade show. 

First up is the Nokia 1 that is purported to be running Android Go, the lightweight OS that Google unveiled along with Android 8.1 Oreo back in October that is optimized for phones running between 512MB and 1GB of RAM.

While the Nokia 1 looks pretty decent for an obviously entry-level handset, the Nokia 7+ is much more interesting for those of us that obsess about specifications. With the Nokia 7+ reportedly sporting a 6-inch FHD+ display with 2160 x 1080 resolution, you can pretty much take it to the bank that the panel has an 18:9 aspect ratio. Other likely specs include the Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage along with a MicroSD card slot. There’s a dual rear camera setup with 12MP +13MP sensors, one of which enables 2x optical zoom. The front-facing camera has a whopping 16MP and, along with the rear dual camera setup, is tuned by Zeiss. The charging port is of the USB Type-C variety, although there’s no word as yet when there is a 3.5mm audio jack or not.

As you can see from the image above, the Nokia 7+ is part of the Android One program, which means quick and timely updates for both the Android OS and security patches, though it has to be said that Nokia is pretty good at that regardless. As a bonus, @evleaks also threw in a pic of the Nokia 7+ in grey with orange accents, as seen below.
