Thus, it seems that Nokia has oriented its phones more towards secondary or work devices rather than as input terminals. And it is clear that these are basic devices, we find three models equipped with Android 11 Go Edition combined with fairly modest processors and limited memory options. However, it should be noted that there are currently no plans for new OS updates, focusing only on quarterly security updates for the next two years.
Although this does not prevent us from finding some interesting features that are increasingly lost among the new terminals, such as the presence of a wireless FM radio receiver, a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, and even the ability to extract and exchange the battery.
