While flagship phones pack a ton of amazing and bleeding edge features, they also come with ridiculous price tags attached to them. Given how far we’ve advanced, mid-ranged phones these days actually do a pretty good job for what they are, and if you are after such a device, HMD Global might have something for you.
One of the problems with Android handsets is that because they are made by a variety of manufacturers, things like how long phones are supported for and update schedules are entirely up to the manufacturers to decide, and not Google. The good news is that if you’re the owner of a first-gen Nokia smartphone made by HMD Global, it seems that the company has decided to extend support for those […]
HMD Global, the company that makes Nokia-branded smartphones now, could soon be unveiling a new device. An unannounced Nokia device has been leaked on Weibo. The leaked images show that this smartphone has a waterdrop-style notch on the display in addition to a 48 megapixel camera on the back. There’s some speculation that it could be launched as the Nokia 5.2.
A few smartphone manufacturers have started building dedicated “Night Modes” into their camera software. This involves using a bit of software trickery to improve imaging performance in low light conditions. Google has done this to great effect with its Pixel devices and Samsung has recently tried to replicate it as well. A new report suggests that HMD Global might be close to rolling out a dedicated Night Mode for Nokia […]
If you’re looking to purchase a new mid-range smartphone, perhaps one of Nokia’s current offerings will be to your liking. At least that’s what the company would be hoping. HMD Global, the company making Nokia-branded smartphones, unveiled the Nokia 4.2 back in February. The handset is now set to arrive in the United States for $189.
Some Nokia 9 owners have reported a serious security flaw with the in-display fingerprint sensor on their units. Many users had initially complained about the sensor’s accuracy when the device came out. HMD Global did send out a software update last week which was supposed to improve the accuracy. However, a security flaw has been detected in several units whereby even unregistered fingerprints have been able to generate a positive […]
HMD Global, the home of Nokia-branded smartphones, has launched a new smartphone today. It jumps on the 2019 trend of hole punch displays and also brings a camera that will jump off the page in marketing materials. The Nokia X71 features a 48 megapixel camera but is an otherwise mid-range device.
HMD, the Finnish company making Nokia-branded devices, is now being investigated by the country’s data protection watchdog amid reports that some of its phones sent data to servers in China. The investigation comes after NRK, a Norwegian public broadcaster, claimed having proof which showed that Nokia phones were sending sensitive data to China based on a tip from a device owner.
We have been hearing rumors and reports about the Nokia 9 PureView since late last year. The company was originally expected to release this device in 2018 but is believed to have delayed the launch to MWC 2019. Nokia’s MWC 2019 teaser essentially confirmed that this handset will be unveiled in Barcelona. Now, official press renders of the Nokia 9 PureView have been leaked online.
The Nokia 9 PureView s a highly-anticipated handset, namely because of its penta-lens array on the back where it will be interesting to see how the company approaches it. However if there is one area we can’t really get on board with is the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
HMD Global confirmed a few days back that it’s going to be selling its devices through carriers in the United States as well. It has inked an agreement with Verizon for this purpose and the first device has quietly gone on sale now. The Nokia 2 V is not one of HMD’s more powerful devices, but it’s certainly a start.
HMD Global has recently confirmed that they will be at MWC 2019 where presumably new phones will be announced, like the Nokia 1 Plus whose specs were recently leaked, and also the highly-anticipated Nokia 9 PureView. It seems that the latter has been more or less confirmed, thanks to teaser images shared by the company.
HMD Global has seen considerable success with its Nokia smartphones. The company has sold some 70 million units in a couple of years and offers a variety of products to suit every price range, starting with affordable models priced at around $100 to flagship models that cost north of $700. The Nokia 1 was on the lower end of the spectrum when it arrived last year and it’s successor is […]
HMD Global has done a good job of reviving the iconic Nokia brand for smartphones. It has been able to achieve this by putting out well-made devices with reasonable specs and affordable price tags. The company is now getting serious about selling its wares in the United States. For that reason, it has inked agreements with carriers in the country to sell devices through them.
The state of the Nokia 9 PureView’s launch has been back and forth. It was initially suggested that the phone might be announced towards the end of January, but later there were claims that it could be unveiled at MWC 2019 instead. The latter report is gaining a bit of credibility as HMD Global’s Juho Sarvikas has confirmed the company’s presence at MWC 2019.
The problem with Android updates is that unless you own a Pixel handset, if and when the latest Android update is released for your device is really anyone’s guess. Some manufacturers are faster than others, but once again it isn’t exactly predictable. However HMD Global wants to take out some of the guesswork involved.
HMD Global hasn’t said anything about when we can expect its next flagship to arrive. However, there have been more than a few leaks about the Nokia 9 PureView. A promotional video for the handset popped online just a couple of weeks ago. While it was expected that HMD would unveil this device in January 2019, it seems that the launch has again been rolled back to MWC 2019.
It seems that the Nokia 8.1 Plus may not be the only device from HMD Global to adopt the camera hole display. A new leak suggests that the same display technology may also be used for the Nokia 6.1’s successor which may be called the Nokia 6.2. It’s believed that this smartphone is going to be launched later in February.
If 2018 was defined by the notch then it appears that 2019 will be defined by the camera hole. Display manufacturers have come up with another way of maximizing the screen real estate. It involves putting the camera in a cutout inside the display thus removing the notch and freeing up more space. HMD Global might be adopting this for an upcoming Nokia device.
The leaks concerning the Nokia 9 PureView are picking up steam amid reports that the handset is going to be launched in January. It was previously said that HMD Global had delayed this handset’s release to MWC 2019. Earlier reports have revealed that this handset is going to have a five-camera system at the back, however, the details about this camera system are slim right now.
