On the uniqueness of the Nokia 1, Umunakwe, said “There are more than 1.3 billion feature phone users around the world, many from markets in Asia and Africa. As the value market in feature phones, we understand the barrier and challenges people face when it comes to the step up to a smartphone which is why we’ve made our most accessible smartphone ever.”
