As part of Android Go OS optimisation, Nokia 1 will run apps like Files Go, Google Go, Maps Go and YouTube Go, among others to take up 50 percent less space, giving users more room for other things like music and photos. The camera and flash cutout are in a protruding oval module and has the "Nokia" branding in the centre. and the Nokia 1 will likely feature a 720 x 1280-pixel IPS LCD display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage.
