HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announces the launch of its latest smartphone … the Nokia 1.4.

Boasting an impressive screen real estate which stretches to 6.51 inches edge-to-edge, it’s almost a full inch bigger than its predecessor, and the largest ever to feature on a 1 series Nokia.

The Nokia 1.4 is a phone engineered and built in the moment.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President of North America, HMD Global said:

“As a father of two myself, I can relate to the challenges many families are facing with having to fit in so many activities at home. With these needs continuing to grow, we wanted to create a reliable and enjoyable experience that truly benefits all family members without adding to any household financial pressures.

Be it managing work emails, paying bills or keeping the kids busy with online extracurricular activities, our designers addressed the fact that millions of families around the world are spending more time at home. In response, we increased the size of the screen on the Nokia 1.4 to the maximum capacity so parents, carers and children can stay connected and productive. To further enhance the photography experience – on top of the improvements already brought to you by Google’s AI on the Camera Go app, we also added a macro camera to capture epic close-ups at home or outdoors. All powered by Qualcomm®, a trusted industry leader, and encased in a tough, mishap-proof body with our signature two-day battery life1.”

The new expanded HD+ screen comes into its own with video calling apps, helping families to stay connected amid the current climate, and showcases the Nokia 1.4’s camera capabilities.

The dual camera setup coupled with Camera Go app by Google helps you take high quality photos at any time, even under low light conditions. Capture precious family moments with Portrait Mode that lets you achieve professional-looking photos with blurred backgrounds. Use Night Mode to take colour-rich and crisp low-light shots without the need for flash. Helpful storage indicators will take away any worries about space so you can carry on snapping.

The built-in macro lens will entertain the whole family as kids get up close and personal with slugs, bugs, and flowers while exploring the great outdoors and come in handy at home when you need to zoom in on the fine print on the latest utility bill.

Nokia phones have a well-deserved reputation for being sturdy, durable devices and the Nokia 1.4 is no exception.

This is an affordable phone which you can happily hand over to the children to borrow without worrying about the condition it will come back in.

Design-wise it is crafted to sit securely in any hand and contains a Qualcomm® chipset and fingerprint sensor.

Staying true to Nokia smartphone values, the Nokia 1.4 is ready for AndroidTM 11 (Go edition) and beyond. It offers a faster, more secure way of doing things with our unique Android promise and at least three years of security updates, you can rest assured your phone will stand the test of time on the inside as much as on the outside.

Built-in parental controls[ii] allow users to manage content downloaded from Google Play store, and will give grown-ups the peace of mind to allow children to listen, learn or play until their hearts are content. 

And there is no need to worry about battery life either. 

The Nokia 1.4 will keep you entertained and connected at the same time thanks to the improved two-day capacity of the phone’s impressive powerpack.  

So, whether it’s long video calls, streaming or playing games, there’s more than enough power to keep the whole family occupied.

The price-point will make it appealing to anyone who wants state-of-the-art tech for half the cost of a typical family’s weekly food shop.

Your Nokia 1.4 can:

  • Capture close-up details of slugs, bugs and flowers when you’re outdoors or utility bill small print with the new macro camera
  • Easily power through the kids’ Google Meet for morning registration, and your work team’s afternoon video call with 2-day battery life1
  • Offer you a better viewing experience with a screen the size of a 50 Eur note
  • Stay updated for at least the same time it takes your child to walk, talk, learn to speak and tell their own stories with three years of monthly security updates
