However, the brand made a turnabout and came up with its own Android tablet called Nokia N1 and convinced everyone that it has no plans to go out of the business yet. The brand has also been in news for speculations surrounding its Android mobiles now that it has taken its first step in that direction. Nokia E1 is the one smartphone that has been in news for a lot longer. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming handset.

Moreover, it is not even sure whether this handset will come out or not since Nokia has not said a word about the same.

Any Alternative?

OnePlus 3: This handset is the newest flagship killer and as such it is bound to be the best alternative to the Nokia E1. OnePlus 3 comes with every cutting edge specifications there is and has been declared one of the best handset in the mid range by many reviewers. In order to get the best value for money spent, OnePlus 3 would make more sense in this price.
