What they said

Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager Kenya & East Africa, HMD Global said “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, caregivers 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.”
