Nokia 1.3 Specifications, Features

Nokia 1.3

Being an entry-level handset, the Nokia 1.3 comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 chipset. It gets just 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM and comes with 16GB of internal memory. You do, however, get the option to use a microSD card. The phone sports a 5.71-inch  with HD+ (720×1520 pixels) resolution in a 19:9 aspect ratio. It also gets a waterdrop-style display notch and claims 400 nits of brightness.

The camera at the rear is a single 8-megapixel unit with LED flash for low light situations. At the front, the phone gets a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The phone, being an Android One device, gets the Google Go Camera app that supports AI-backed Low Light enhancement, HDR, and Portrait modes.

The Nokia 1.3 also gets a 3000 mAh battery under the hood and comes with a standard 10W charger since there is no support for fast charging. On the connectivity front, the phone gets support for  4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, FM radio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The handset runs Android 10 (Go Edition) and will be upgradeable to future versions of Android 11. The company promises that it will continue to receive an update to Android 12 as well. The Nokia 1.3 will reportedly set you back by EUR 95, which translates to roughly Rs 7,600. It remains to be seen if the phone does make it to India at that price.

A spiritual successor to the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic from 2007, the new Nokia 5310 is a feature phone that the company says is designed for music lovers. The new Nokia 5310 gets a 2.4-inch QVGA display with dual front-facing speakers and physical keypad. It is offered in single and dual SIM versions.

The processor powering this phone is the entry-level MediaTek MT6260A SoC, which comes with just 8MB RAM. There is 16MB of internal memory, which means you will almost certainly need to use a microSD card with the phone. The phone also gets a 1200mAh removable battery that claims a talk time of up to 7.5 hours on both the single-SIM and dual-SIM units. As for the camera, the phone only gets a rear-facing VGA camera. The phone supports MP3 files for music playback and also comes with support for FM Radio.
