HMD Global has today announced the launch of its latest smartphone the Nokia 1.4 in Kenya.

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.

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.

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 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.
