In-display fingerprint sensors were launched in early 2018 when Vivo was one of the first smartphone companies to adopt it. It has since seen further adoption by other companies like Huawei and OnePlus, and it looks like Nokia is expected to use the feature as well in its upcoming Nokia 9 PureView.
Recently we have been hearing rumors about the Nokia 9 PureView, which for those unfamiliar is an Android smartphone that will be packing a penta-lens camera design. Based on the leaks we’ve been seeing so far, it seems like the phone is ripe for an official announcement, which now we are hearing could set for an end January 2019 announcement.
If you thought that companies such as Huawei and Samsung were pushing the limits with smartphones with a triple and quad camera setup, think again. Several months ago we heard rumors that HMD Global might have a new Nokia smartphone in the works with a penta-lens design, and now more evidence has surfaced that such a device exists.
It has been a while since HMD Global launched a new Nokia-branded flagship smartphone. There were reports about a Nokia 9 being due for release this year but it appears that the launch has been delayed to 2019. Some evidence has now surfaced which suggests that the company might be gearing up to launch this device.
The company making Nokia smartphones, HMD Global, has been quick to release Android 9 Pie update this year for several of its handsets. Last year’s flagship, the Nokia 8, was still without Pie but the company is rectifying that today. HMD Global has confirmed that it’s finally rolling out the Nokia 8 Android 9 Pie update today.
HMD Global is the company that brought Nokia smartphones back to life. It acquired the rights for the brand a couple of years ago and released the first Nokia-branded smartphone, the Nokia 6, early last year. It has launched several models since then and the company has now revealed that it has so far sold 70 million Nokia phones.
HMD Global today announced the launch of a new smartphone, the Nokia 8.1. Some of you may recall its Nokia 8 flagship smartphone, this isn’t an iteration of that or the Nokia 8 Sirocco. Even though the name might suggest that, this device is actually the successor of the Nokia 7 Plus so it’s more of a premium mid-range phone.
Nokia 7.1 owners can now get a taste of Android Pie on their handsets. The company has confirmed that it has started rolling out Android 9.0 Pie for the Nokia 7.1. The company launched this handset only recently so it’s great that the Pie update is being released for this handset rather quickly. It’s a mid-range device that offers customers a good bang for their buck.The confirmation that HMD Global, […]
While smartphones have become the defacto way in terms of communications, there are plenty of users around the world who might not have the money for a smartphone, which explains why 10 years after Apple revitalized the smartphone industry, there are still feature phones being produced and sold.
Recent leaks have suggested that Nokia has a new flagship smartphone up its sleeve which may be called the Nokia 9. It would be a unique device as it may very well be the world’s first smartphone with five rear cameras. It was said that Nokia will launch this device at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona but a new rumor claims that the launch has now been moved […]
It was first rumored a couple of months ago that Nokia may have a new smartphone up its sleeve with a grand total of five cameras at the back. No other manufacturer has a penta-camera setup at the back right now. Samsung was the first to put four at the back with the recently launched Galaxy A9. There’s no word as yet when this device, dubbed Nokia 9, will arrive […]
It was reported last week that Nokia phones could be returning to Verizon. The brand has been licensed by a Finnish company called HMD Global which makes Nokia smartphones now. It has been a few years since Verizon offered a Nokia smartphone. The last devices on its roster were from the Windows Phone-powered Lumia era. A new Nokia device is expected to be offered by Verizon soon and it will […]
The Nokia of today is different from what most of us grew up with. A Finnish company called HMD Global has licensed the brand name and it’s the one making these Nokia smartphones now. The company is apparently bringing its mid-range smartphones to the United States through a carrier partnership with Verizon. If the information is accurate, it would be the first Nokia-branded smartphone on Verizon since the Windows Phone-powered […]
There is a common misconception that cheap phones don’t offer the best user experience. This really depends from manufacturer to manufacturer as we have seen some budget phones that have gone on to become extremely popular. For those who aren’t in the market for a phone that would cost them an arm and a leg, HMD Global is happy to oblige.
The problem with Android phones is that when it comes to updates, it’s hard to predict when the update will be released for your phone, if at all. Generally speaking flagship phones are safe for at least two updates, but what about the rest? Thankfully HMD Global isn’t being picky about its updates and have announced the timeline for its Android Pie update for its Nokia phones.
Just like how wired internet connections tend to be faster and more stable compared to wireless, the same can be said for wired headphones, but then there is also the convenience factor where you don’t need to worry about cables, plus with smartphones these days ditching the headphone jack, it’s easy to see why more are turning to wireless options.
HMD Global, the home of Nokia-branded smartphones, is yet to confirm when it’s going to launch its next flagship smartphone. It was expected that the device would be out later this year but there’s no sign of it as yet. However, a reputable source has revealed that when it does arrive, the company’s next high-end device will be called the Nokia 9 PureView.
If you’re the owner of the Nokia 7 Plus and you’ve been eagerly waiting for the Android 9.0 Pie update, it seems that you might have to wait a tad longer because in a tweet by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas, he has confirmed that the update might be delayed due to certain bugs.
In recent times we have been hearing rumors that new Nokia phones could be in the works. For example there is that penta-lens Nokia smartphone that has been leaked multiple times, and last we heard there were also rumors that Nokia could have a gaming smartphone in the works (assuming these two devices aren’t one and the same).
Many companies have come out with their own gaming smartphones and it’s now believed that Nokia could end up going down this road as well. HMD Global, the company that makes Nokia smartphones now, hasn’t said anything about developing a gaming smartphone but a tweet from one of the company’s official accounts might have been hinting at this possibility.
