The Nokia 1 Plus is a potential refresh or successor to the 1, an ultra-budget Android Go device. Images and specs purportedly associated with this new phone have surfaced online. According to them, the 1 Plus may gain a faster SoC and a more modern design compared to the 1. However, the two may remain similar in many aspects.

A recent rumor has pointed toward a new phone made by HMD Global. It may be called the Nokia 1 Plus, which means it may relate in some way to the pre-existing Nokia 1. The leak in question includes a render for a phone that loses the original 1's plastic unibody with classic Nokia-esque rounded corners for a more standard candy-bar look. What it may have in the way of bezels is not made clear, although it does appear to have a traditional forehead with front-facing sensors.

The "Nokia 1 Plus" is poiwered by Mediatek MT6739WW. It is a quad-core 1.5GHz SoC, which outdoes the Mediatek MT6737M found in the Nokia 1 by 0.4GHz. The leak, published by Tiger Mobiles, describes the screen as having a 480x960 resolution and 213ppi, but does not specify its size. As it is slightly better than the Nokia 1 in terms of resolution, but slightly worse in terms of pixel density (by 5ppi) , it is probably not much larger than the original phone's 5.4 inch display.

Like the Nokia 1, the "1 Plus" only has 1GB of RAM (of which 889 MB is usable) and will run Android 9.0. It must be said, as the 1 is an Android Go device with its own assured upgrade to the same OS, the point of releasing a Plus variant may be lost on some. In any case, at the time of writing, a release event for the Nokia 1 Plus has yet to be confirmed.
