Nokia 9 PureView is one of the showstoppers of the MWC 2019 event. The phone packs an awe-inspiring five cameras at the back. And is the first smartphone to do so. But that’s not all about Nokia in the grand Mobile World Congress event, the smartphone maker also unveiled four other mobile devices. Among the bunch, the Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2, and the Nokia 1 Plus are the budget-centric smartphones whereas the Nokia 210 is a bar phone.

Nokia 210

At the unveiling event, Nokia claims to be the world’s top feature phone maker. Being the leader in the feature phone department, Nokia has yet again dropped a feature phone to expand its lineup.

And talking about the Nokia 210 feature phone, the handset looks quite sturdy in its toughened plastic attire. The phone packs a 2.4-inch QVGA color display with a clicky number pad beneath it. With the small QVGA display and a numpad, the phone looks antiquated. But unlike most of the retro phones, the Nokia 210 houses a 0.3MP rear camera at its back. The camera on the back is accompanied by an LED flash.

On the software side, the phone boots on Nokia’s S30 software. The phone also comes pre-installed with apps like Opera Mini, Browser, Facebook, and the Snake game. On the top, the phone also comes with Mobile Store for app downloads. But the sad part is the phone only comes with 16MB of internal memory, which is non-expandable.

Nokia 1 Plus

Although the hype of 18:9 aspect ratio is no longer the same in the smartphone market, Nokia has yet implemented that display form factor in its budget offering.

The phone also comes with Android Go version of the Android Pie out of the box. And being the Android Go device, the phone will also receive regular updates and security patches. Other than that, the Nokia 1 Plus comes with an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and a decent 2500mAh battery.
