HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announces the availability of Nokia 1 Plus in Sri Lanka - the latest member of its Android (Go edition) smartphone family. One of the first global Android 9 (Go edition) smartphones, Nokia 1 Plus brings solid imaging in a high-quality Nokia design with a large screen.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global:
“People who buy smartphones in the entry-level segment are often making a huge financial commitment, so they want a highly aspirational experience from a brand they trust. With our product philosophy of investing where it matters the most and delivering the best of Android, we aim to excel for people who can often feel forgotten. That’s why the Nokia 1 Plus combines a big display, solid imaging, aspirational design with a unique nano-pattern finish, and the latest Android 9 Pie (Go edition).”
Modern design and quality combined with a big, bright screen
The Nokia 1 Plus brings a progressive and cutting-edge design to the value segment. Using innovative materials with 3D tooling, it achieves a gorgeous textured nano-pattern at the back that cups the Nokia 1 Plus all the way to the display. Its polycarbonate shell is inherently coloured rather than painted (colour runs through so doesn’t show white when nicked or scratched), providing a unique texture for a sophisticated look and feel.
With the Nokia 1 Plus, we are introducing a mid-segment screen size at exceptionally accessible price points. Nokia 1 Plus’s 5.45” IPS 18:9 full screen display for better viewing quality. With its 8.55mm thinness, the Nokia 1 Plus provide comfort and a classy look.
