Nokia recently launched the Nokia 6 (2018) with 16:9 screen ratio in China but during the MWC 2018, we might be expect the global launch of the phone.
Nokia 1 also comes with a 16:9 display. Meanwhile, Nokia might also launch the Nokia 10 with Five-lens camera. Although, the Nokia 1 is not the first phone to arrive with the Android Go edition, the Alcatel 1X is!
The Nokia 1, on the other hand, seems a lot more like a super-cheap low-end phone. The Nokia 2 is priced under $200, probably, the Nokia 1 will be available globally later and priced at $85.
