Nokia, the innovative global leader in 5G, networks and phones is planning to launch phones that will be based on Google’s Android Go platform. Although the official names of these phones have not been announced there is a listing on Korea published by Korea Testing Laboratory, which showed the following model numbers TA-1318, TA-1320, TA-1308, TA-1312, TA-130. Even these model numbers’ phones have been approved by Wi-Fi Alliance. This gives a hint to the media that new Nokia Android Go phones are going to be launched soon.
As per Nokiamob, there are eight phones in total which involves various versions of a phone. The new Nokia phones will run on the Android Go version of Android Q, also recognized as Android 10. The phones come with support WiFi b/g/n connectivity and a 2.4 GHz WiFi frequency support. Wi-Fi specifications are quite approved for entry-level phones, says the website.
For now, very less information is available on when the mobile phones will be launched in the market. It means Nokia’s multiple Android Go-based phones symbolize a revised approach with a center on the entry-level section. One should understand that the entry-level segment is usually priced below Rs. 7,000. Feature phone users usually are more compared to smartphone users. So, it will be interesting to see if Nokia can help overcome the gap between a feature phone and smartphone users.
Android Go is a platform that was officially released on 5 December 2017. It is called officially Android Go Edition and is a stripped-down version of Android configuration produced for low-end and ultra-budget smartphones.
