HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, on April 4 announced that the new Nokia 1 Plus is now available to buy for an estimated selling price of 9,300 shillings.

One of the first global Android 9 (Go edition) smartphones, Nokia 1 Plus brings solid imaging in a high-quality Nokia design with a big screen. Now you can enjoy all your favorite apps and games, along with the latest Android (Go edition) features like Google Assistant Go.

According to Mark Misumi, HMD Business Manager East Africa, the company by investing where it matters most and delivering the best of Android devices, aims to offer nothing but the best.

“We aim to offer high-quality products to our consumers ensuring that they have the best possible experience with this latest addition to our portfolio. Nokia 1 Plus combines a big display, solid imaging, and aspirational design with a unique nano-pattern finish at the back, as well as running on the latest Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) OS,” he said.

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 colored rather than painted (color runs through so doesn’t show white when nicked or scratched), providing a unique texture for a sophisticated look and feel.
