Nokia 1.3 for $30 is a crazy deal you should check out during Black Friday sales

Smartphones are getting both — smarter and more elaborate. Look around and you will find phones with sparkly designs, multiple cameras, even multiple displays. For those who wish to spend a fortune on a new phone, the sky is the limit! But for those who just want basic calling and internet functionality, Nokia 1.3 with Android 10 Go Edition is an excellent choice. What makes it even more lucrative is that you can get it only for $30, i.e. at a crazy 70% discount on its MSRP of $100 during the Black Friday deals at Best Buy.

    The Nokia 1.3 is a handy phone for basic utility and comes with the promise of two years of Android updates. The 70% discount just makes the whole deal way sweeter.

The Nokia 1.3 was launched by HMD Global earlier this year. It features a 5.71-inch display with a waterdrop notch. It runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 250 SoC, comes with 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. Unlike the snazzy phones that rule the market, you get a single 8MP camera on the back and 5MP on the front. It is pre-loaded with Google’s Camera Go app for crisper portraits and a brilliant Night mode as well as HDR.

The Nokia 1.3 weighs only slightly over 150 grams, which is ideal if you don’t want to be distracted while being at your creative best. It also comes with a removable 3,000mAh battery for those old times’ sake. Don’t tell me you don’t enjoy tearing phones apart without fearing about breaking them!

You also get features like an FM Radio, dual-SIM LTE support, and a dedicated Google Assistant button. HMD Global also promises two Android updates. This means that while the Nokia 1.3 runs on Android 10 Go Edition out of the box, you will get subsequent updates to Android 11 Go and Android 12 Go, to keep your phone breezy and secure for at least the next two years.

While the Nokia 1.3 is a good phone for basic usage, you can also use it as a secondary phone for when you’re at work or school. The $30 Black Friday price on Best Buy takes it to a whole different level of entice, making it one of those spare phones that you can always keep around.
