The Nokia 5.3 is called the future-proof phone that costs almost half of the entry-level premium smartphone. HMD Global's Nokia 5.3 costs just under $199, and it will surprise you with its software, features, and design as a daily phone. The Nokia 5.3 was already gone on sale back in April this year but is yet to get an official launch in India. And now HMG Global has sent out the invites for an online event on August 25. The invite says it will be giving a brief session virtually ahead of the launch. The virtual session will be done on Microsoft Teams and will begin at 10 AM IST. It is believed the Nokia 5.3 will be announced on the same day.
The company has also reported that the 2020 models of the Nokia 125 and Nokia 150 may be announced on the same day since these device has already received certification by the Bureau of Indian Standards since June. The rear panel of the phone is made of plastic and frame a 6.55-inch display screen with 1,600 x 720 pixels. Due to its cover, it is quite manageable but may not fit in the small hands. If you are watching YouTube videos on the mobile phone, you might want to increase the brightness up to full most of the time as the auto-brightness may not work for you.
The phone house a selfie camera at the top of the display with a small bezel on the bottom. The primary camera is of 13-megapixel with a 4/1.8 aperture and is joined by a 5-megapixel ultra-wide, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The front camera is of 8-megapixel. To take pictures at a low-light situation, it offers a night mode, but the shots it takes are hardly better than those you take without it.
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB of RAM options. The Nokia 5.3 offers similar software experience as the Google Pixel phones with Android One and no special user interface. The phone will receive software updates for the next years, including Android 11. The device features a massive 4,000mAh battery that is enough for medium-level usage with a single charge throughout the day.
Today, HTC sends out invitations to its upcoming MWC 2015 even next March. The invites are titled with a starry sky and the words "Utopia in progress". Well, it's not much to assume from, but it might indicates that the Taiwanese company is planning on releasing a ground-breaking flagship.
The most anticipated device this year is the HTC One (M9), if that's what they decide to call it, will reportedly make the jump to a 5" QHD screen, a Snapdragon 810 chipset, a 20.7MP camera on the front with maybe an UltraPixel selfie camera and a burly 3,500mAh battery to power it all.
We knew that the Galaxy Tab S3 was going to be the unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and as expected, we were right. Samsung's email invitation to the media houses for the MWC confirmed that piece of info by containing a teaser preview of the upcoming tablet's bottom bezel. Since Samsung has now confirmed that the Galaxy S8 won't be making an appearance at this event, the Tab S3 will in all likelihood be the company's main attraction in Barcelona.
Samsung will hold its unveiling event at 7PM CET, on the 26th of February where it may or may not showcase a few other smartphones as well. Just in case you are wondering what kind of hardware the Tab S3 will be packing, we have you covered.

Although the specs mentioned above are gathered from a recent rumor that originated in Korea, the chances of them being right are pretty high.
