The Nokia 1 is a budget phone aimed to help improve penetration in developing markets. It is running Android Go which is a lightweight version of Android for less powerful phones.

The phone has a MediaTek MT6737M chipset paired with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, while the 4.5-inch display has just a 854 x 480 pixel resolution. There's a 5 MP camera around the back.

It is nothing to get overly excited about but it looks good and will likely sell well in developing nations. It will be available from early April, with a choice of clip-on covers, the Nokia 1 will be retailing for an average of $85.

Next up is the new version of the Nokia 6, bringing a few upgrades to last year's handset. It offers a 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, and is powered by a Snapdragon 630 chipset, with a 16MP camera around the back.

There's a choice of 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB or 64 GB of storage, and again Android 8.0 Oreo is on board. That phone can be yours for €279 (roughly US$345), and it's on sale in April.

Then there is the Nokia 7 Plus, with a “flagship imaging experience” and the same dual-lens rear camera setup as the Nokia 8 Sirocco. The 6-inch, 2160 x 1080 pixel display is stretched to an 18:9 aspect ratio.

There is a Snapdragon 660 CPU inside, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage. Like the Nokia 6, the Nokia 7 Plus is made from a solid block of aluminium, and like the other phones, it'll be widely available from April this year for €399

One of the main selling points for Nokia has been the fact they have not touched Android and rolled out updates quickly. The three new phones are all part f the Android One program which guarantees a pure untouched Android experience along with speedy updates.
