The Nokia 1 was launched in February 2018 at an affordable price tag of $ 85 (about INR 5,500) and it led the phone to become the best-selling Android smartphone of Nokia to date.
Android 9 Pie, which will probably be the latest version of Android that sees this model, brings Nokia 1 a renewed interface, better management of notifications, more optimization of energy consumption and also the June 2019 security patch.
In addition, given that the device is part of the Android Go initiative, the update includes measures designed to preserve a good performance in the device despite its low specs.
