If rumors are to be believed, Android Go-branded Nokia 1 smartphone will launch in March 2018. However, there is abrupt silence from not only from Google but also from HMD Global regarding the release of the handset. Touted to significantly improve the overall user experience on budget devices, the Nokia 1 Android Go smartphone has been exclusively designed for emerging markets.
According to the well-known Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin, the Nokia 1 will be officially part of Android Go aka Android Oreo Go program. The main purpose of the Android Go is to enhance the user experience with a fluid user interface coupled with useful apps for improving productivity.
Nokia 1 – Android Go, 5990. HD, IPS, 1/8gb – пристойный корпус. Март. Пока сырой. У Хуавея такой же и цена 4990 или 5490, еще не решено

Based on the reports from the rumor mills, the Nokia 1 will reportedly ship with HD IPS display, 1GB RAM paired with 8GB expandable storage. We don’t have any information about the expected display size but we believe that it should be around 5-inch.
We haven’t any smartphones above 5-inch display size in the smartphone segment in 2017. Hence, we assume that the screen will be 5-inch or above. With the storage rumored to be 8GB, we have to contend with the 5-inch display.
There are reports that the Nokia 1 Android Go will cost RUB 5990 and will ship with lightweight Google apps such as Files Go, Google Maps Go and YouTube Go. These apps will not be like the full-blown apps but will be trimmed to suit smartphones with less storage.
Murtazin also revealed that Huawei is also gearing up to launch Android Go smartphone. It is to be noted that Google made a failed attempt a few years back by launching Android One. The platform was initially accepted by tech enthusiasts but was abandoned. However, Xiaomi recently released a new smartphone with Android One platform and it sold out like hot cakes.
To recall, HMD Global released Nokia 2 with a 5-inch LTPS display, Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera powered by a 4100mAh battery. The phone is available in Indi at a price of Rs. 6999, which equates to around $110.
