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 […]
Nokia launched the Beacon 3 mesh Wi-Fi router system last year which cost $199 for a single base station. The company has introduced a slightly cheaper mesh Wi-Fi system with the Beacon 1 today. It’s a budget alternative to the existing model and has a starting price of $129 for a one base station.
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 […]
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.
Ubergizmo’s Best of MWC 2019Editor's Pick
With 5G and foldable phones entering the market in 2019, this year’s Mobile World Congress was full of excitement, but not all products are created equal, and some are more eye-catchy than others. Here’s what we think is worthy of your attention, in no particular order.
We have been hearing rumors about this device since last year and HMD Global has finally revealed it at its press event ahead of MWC 2019 tomorrow in Barcelona. The Nokia 9 PureView is official and it does indeed feature five cameras at the back. The company has attached the PureView branding to this device which is an homage to the Nokia devices of days gone by.
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 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.
