Two of the devices that we have already heard about are the Nokia D1 (D1C) and the Nokia E1. The D1 is expected to be a mid-ranger but the E1, which was just revealed last month is now believed to be a budget smartphone.
Given the new details have emerged on the Nokia E1's specs, it may be the cheapest Android smartphone Nokia launches this year with pricing around $150.
Coming to specs, the phone is expected to come with a 5.2-inch or 5.3-inch 720p HD display running on the Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor with 2GB RAM. The Nokia E1 is expected to come with 16GB internal storage which would be expandable with a microSD slot.
On the camera front, there will be a 13-megapixel camera at the back along with a 5-megapixel camera above the display for selfies. Moreover, the E1 will probably run on almost stock Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with the Nokia Z Launcher. Read More: Nokia E1 Expected Price, Specifications, and Details
