MWC also saw HMD Global announce Nokia 1, which is an Android Oreo Go edition phone along with Nokia 6 Android One edition. This is just a statement and we know that every smartphone come with different carrier compatibility in the United States.

Now available in select markets, the Alcatel 3V comes in black, blue or gold for Euro 190. It is announced during ongoing MWC 2018 in Barcelona.

Nokia 1 features a 4.5 inch FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) display. The Alcatel 1X comes with a 13MP and 8MP rear dual camera setup.

13MP f/2.0 front-facing camera with a secondary 5MP 120-degree wide-angle lens. The phone has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of storage. The novelty will appear on sale in black and blue in the second quarter of this year at a price of $ 160.

Asus' new ZenFone 5 lineup features impressive specs and ultra-slim bezels
While it's good enough for the mid range ZenFone 5 , it is a bit on the lower side compared to rivals in the premium segment. It is powered by a 4000mAh battery , rated to deliver up to 36 hours of talk time on 3G, and 41 days of standby time on 4G.

Alcatel did not stop with the smartphones. Android Go phones will also come with Google Play Protect, the advanced security suite which uses machine learning to find malicious apps on smartphone.

Where some western companies see this as a weakness, in other markets it's being embraced - General Mobile's slogan is now "Always the latest from Google", and the company's making a big push around Google Photos and its unlimited free high quality storage with both phones. It is equipped with an LTE Cat 4 modem to support 4G with expected speed of up to 150 MB per second plus other additions that would have been very useful to Neo, including WiFi connection, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System. Moving further, an inbuilt battery of 3,260 mAh that supports Qi wireless charging and will be the fastest charging device, that is in 30minutes 50% of the battery will be charged.

The Nokia 1 is meant to give budget-conscious people a decent smartphone experience and to act as a bridgehead in the feature phone market.

"With this, India will become one of the first countries to commercially roll-out smartphones running on Android Oreo (Go edition)", it added.

It features a full-screen design and a display with the aspect ratio of 18:9. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor with PowerVR GE8100 GPU.

The G3 runs on 4GB of Ram (good enough for running multiple apps at once) and comes with facial recognition. They have to come up with innovative marketing strategy to boost the number of selling of their new smartphones in the coming weeks.
