HMD Global announced today that it is launching the Nokia 8.3 5G in the USA as the Nokia 8V 5G UV via Verizon. The original Nokia 8.3 5G was released early in March 2020 and was expected to reach the US market somewhere around fall. The latest phone from Verizon wireless also bears the logo seen on its other Nokia's devices, with the UW suffix signifying support for the faster mmWave 5G speeds.
The device also supports Verizon 5G Nationwide, the carrier's recently announced sub-6Ghz low band 5G network. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, said that the device is the company's "first affordable flagship carrier device on Android in the U.S.".
As for the specs, the phone features a large 6.81-inch full HD+ pure display screen with support for HDR. the Nokia 8V is powered by a Snapdragon 765G and comes with two 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options. You can also expand the storage option with the MicroSD card. The phone has an aluminum frame with Gorilla Glass front and back, and there is a three mmWave antenna in this phone, designed to give you perfect reception for those lightning-fast speeds.
The phone features a quad-camera setup at the rear side with ZEISS optics. The primary camera holds a 64MP sensor accompanied by an ultra-wide-angle sensor with night mode for improved low-light performance, a macro lens, and a full-depth camera sensor. There is a Google Assistant button on the side of the display panel of the phone which runs on Android One software. The phone has a power button along with a fingerprint sensor. The phone runs over a 4,500mAh battery. The Nokia 8V 5G will hit the market starting from November 12. You can purchase the phone just for $699 on Verizon's website and the My Verizon App.
Nokia HERE Maps is heading to Android, but can it compete with Google Maps ? Well, HERE marketing team showed us that its much better than Google Maps, Describing Google Maps offline mode is only "a glorified screenshot".
Google is an Internet company so offline mode was never much of a priority, while Nokia has been offering navigation software on its phones since less than 10 people had mobile Internet.
The video shows the Save for offline use feature of Google Maps and points out you can't plan new routes, hence the "screenshot" jab. Google Maps can at least reroute you while offline, which the video conveniently overlooks.
Lately, The Nokia brand has been phased out by calling the phones just "Lumia" and redirecting Nokia online properties to Microsoft.com. This rebranding effort will expand and soon the lineup will become "Microsoft Lumia".
Lumia is already the de facto face of Windows Phone it accounts for about 90% of the market. Microsoft has been busy signing up new vendors but they will struggle to gain significant market share as the big names have mostly neglected WP.
Nokia might have been out of the smartphone business for a few years now, but there are still plenty of us who have a soft spot in our hearts for the once great Finnish ruler of the bygone phone world. We cannot help but feel a tinge of nostalgia and quite a bit of excitement each time a rumor or a leak shows us that Nokia is coming back into the business. However, it is almost certain now that Nokia is indeed coming back with a few Android smartphones and tablets in the last quarter of 2016.
The Nokia branding will be continuing under HMD, which is constituted largely with major ex-Nokia employees. As we have now officially entered the last quarter of the year, a snapshot of the Geekbench test result is showing us the performance of a certain "Nokia D1C." The handset scores decently in all the five trials with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor (1.4GHz), Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM, running on Android Nougat 7.0 apparently. We are sure that there will also be higher-end devices, but for now, the fact that Nokia is making a comeback into the business is quite exciting in itself. We will keep you informed about this as more news pops up.

Apparently there has been a business arrangement made in between Nokia Technologies, Microsoft, HMD Global and Foxconn that will see Nokia come back into the smartphone business under HMD Global, a fellow Finnish corporation. However, Nokia will enjoy significant control over the handsets manufactured and branded under its name. Nokia will also become a board member within HMD, in addition to setting "mandatory brand requirements and performance provisions." If you are a Nokia fan, we have more good news for you because Arto Nummela will become the head of HMD as a result of this arrangement. Nummela currently holds the position of VP at Microsoft, but hails originally as an executive of Nokia back in the day.
Nokia was the pioneer and at one point, had enjoyed the number one position in the phone business for years at a stretch. Customers used to (many still do) trust the company for quality, innovation, service and durability and it would be interesting to see if this joint venture can bring the same things to consumers with their upcoming Android smartphones. Since HMD Global is basically run by ex-Nokia executives, the chance of that happening seems good right now. Things aren't looking good for Microsoft though as this news once again shows that the mighty software giant is almost on the verge of giving up on their smartphone business.

2016 is the year that has given the hopes to the Nokia fans owing to its return to the smartphone arena. As per the terms of buyout by Microsoft, the Finnish giant's mobile business could not compete with Microsoft and hence didn't manufacture any smartphone under the Nokia brand. That agreement became void on December 31, 2015 and the fans can quite excited by the sheer imagination of what could happen in the future. One probable smartphone for a 2016 release came into limelight in leaked images before a few weeks and now once again different set of pictures of the same device have found their way to the internet.
If there is one sure shot information that can be told about the design of the smartphone, then we'd say that the device is quite boxy. This is not in a negative way, especially taking into account the all-metal body, crossed only by a pair of antenna lines on the back. Other device controllers that can be spotted on the phone are a volume adjuster on the left side and a power button below the device. On the other side, we can see a well isolated cover, most likely a space for the SIM tray and microSD card slot. That can mean IP rating, but let's not go overboard.
It is also quite compelling to see that the newly released pics of the phone seems to be from different unit, as doesn't have prototype marks of the first one. This actually adds to the genuineness of the leak and eventually would mean that the smartphone is essentially one of the three new Nokia smartphones going for a release this year.
The Nokia D1C was largely revealed when it first made an appearance onto Geekbench a while ago, and now the smartphone has appeared on AnTuTu. This further confirms that Nokia is coming back to the mobile business, along with revealing that the phone will have a Full High Definition panel. It is always exciting for those that still have a soft corner for the Finnish phone company to get confirmations about Nokia's return. If you do not know much about the D1C already, check out the screenshot and the specifications listed below.
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz
GPU: Adreno 505
Front/rear camera sensors: 8mp/13mp
Internal storage: 32GB
Android version: 7.0 Nougat
From what we can see here, the D1C is a low-mid range device and definitely not the higher end model that we are still waiting to get a hint of, via leaks. If reports are to be believed, then the company will make its comeback with at least one more smartphone, if not two. We will let you know as soon as more news turns up.

The upcoming Nokia Lumia 630 leaks with some demo videos shows it's new OS, Windows Phone 8.1 from Microsoft. The upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 update will bear the name "Cherry Pink Blossom" for current Nokia phones.
The first video shows a short tour of the Lumia 630 hardware, but focuses mostly on the software. The new Action Center is one of the major new features and has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles, a camera shortcut and a brightness toggle.
The second video demos how wallpapers work on WP8.1. We've known for a while that they are coming the tiles become windows with the wallpaper showing through them. It's interesting to see it in action though as there's a parallax effect when scrolling. You can watch both video Below.
Nokia sense of humor this year is way above expectation, The company's blog announces a New PureView Smartphone running Windows Phone 8. The Nokia 3310 PureView, yes, you heard it right...Nokia 3310... that old chubby phone from the 90's.
Nokia 3310 PureView packs a 41 MP PureView camera module we know from the Lumia 1020, which will ensure oodles of photographic fun with the reinvented 3310. Nokia managed to stuff a dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a microSD slot in dimensions close to the original's casing, gracing the new 3310 with a 3-inch "Clear Diamond" display that sports the generous 768 x 1280 pixels. Head to the source link for more "fooling" info.
Of course it's an April Fools' joke!
Nokia has just launched its New flagship device for 2014, the Nokia Lumia 930 with Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS.
The phones features Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2.2GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in, non-expandable memory on board. The display is a 5-inch super-sensitive ClearBlack AMOLED unit with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and pixel density of 441ppi.
The main camera of the Nokia Lumia 930 is a 20MP PureView unit with 1/2.5" BSI sensor, f/2.4, OIS, and a dual-LED flash. It is capable of capturing 1080p videos @ 30 fps. The Nokia Lumia 930 is expected to roll out globally in June starting with Europe, Asia, Middle East and India. It's expected to cost $599 (€435) before taxes and subsidies.
Nokia Official Facebook page just posted a Photo saying that it has moved to a new "Home" referring to a new website (microsoft.com/mobile) instead of (nokia.com/lumia).
It looks like Microsoft has already started re-branding it's Mobile device, trying to replace the Nokia brand with its own, So it will soon be "Microsoft Lumia" not "Nokia Lumia" as a way to kill the Nokia brand.
So all we have to say is Goodbye Nokia, you've been a great innovative company.
Nokia seems to be over. Sadly, the Finish Giant won't be releasing any Smartphones anymore, this was confirmed by Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri at a recent analyst meeting in London. Nokia will still consumer products to its fans.
Nokia, the former biggest phonemaker in the world, could get its return as soon as tomorrow Nokia just teased that it has been working on something. It will show it off or talk about it at the #Slush14 startup and entrepreneur meetup that starts tomorrow in Helsinki and is said to gather some 10 thousand people.
The teaser itself shows a new device but we can only guess what it is a HTPC, a TV, home automation tech? Hopefully we're going to know all about it tomorrow.
It's hard to imagine Nokia not making any smartphones or phones in general but we'd wager a guess that it's not all over for the company, despite what its CEO reassures us of now. CEOs change and so do plans in the tech world and Nokia is only forbidden to make Nokia phones until December,31st of 2015.
It may be surprising, but this is true! Nokia has just launched a New Android Tablet, named it Nokia N1. The tablet is powerd by Intel Atom CPU running Android 5.0 Lollipop and Nokia Z Launcher UI on top of it.
Nokia N1 has a 7.9-inch IPS QHD display with a dual-speakers on its bottom for great sound experience, I don't need to tell you about the build quality of Nokia products.
Here are the Main Specs of the device:
- 7.9-inch, 2048x1536 (4:3) IPS LCD with Gorilla Glass 3 and fully laminated zero air gap display.
- 64-bit 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor, PowerVR G6430.
- GPU with 2GB RAM.
- 32GB built-in memory (non-expandable).
- 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera.
- Dual channel 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0.
- Micro-USB 2.0 with a Type-C reversible connector.
- Stereo speakers.
- 5300mAh battery.
- Unibody aluminum design; available in Natural Aluminum or Lava Gray colors.
The Nokia N1 will be launched in China first in Q1,2015 for an estimated price of $249 and in other markets at a later date.
Nokia announced its first lollipop tablet, Nokia N1 last month with its own UI on top which called the Nokia Z Launcher. Well, lucky enough, the Nokia Z Launcher is still in BETA stages and has been updated to version 1.0.5 with some bug fixes and now works on more devices.
The Launcher learns from your usage and picks up contextual cues (e.g. whether it's morning or evening), but the feature that sets it apart is scribbling.
Instead of having to hunt down the right shortcut though an alphabetized list, you just your finger to write the first letter and the Z Launcher will display matching apps sorted by how much you use each one of them.
The Z Launcher on the Lollipop-running Nokia N1 tablet is an exclusive version, but you can download the BETA generic version 1.0.5 from the APK link below for a small taste of the experience engineered by Nokia.
Good News for Android users, as Nokia HERE app is now Available for FREE on Google Play. What is HERE ?. Well, it's the famed mapping service that is still under Nokia's wing, which provides its users with completely offline navigation, has a wide array of available maps, up-to-date info for public transportation, as well as turn-by-turn voice guidance all of this free of charge.
Up until now, the app was only available for Samsung devices on one of Samsung's online app repositories. Apart from arriving on Google Play, HERE Beta also adds navigation support for plenty of new countries (Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Cyprus, Iraq, Libya, Mauritania, Mauritius, Nepal, Paraguay, Saint Helena, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Zambia, Zimbabwe), though these countries have not been fully-mapped just yet.
Nokia's first Android tablet, Nokia N1, is doing well in China. Nokia N1 went on sale in China today, and the Finnish company exhausted the initial batch of 20,000 units in record time. It only took 4 minutes and 2 seconds to go through all that inventory. It's important to mention that the Tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
It looks like Nokia chose to go the flash sale route, perhaps inspired by Xiaomi's success with this model. The next opportunity to buy the N1 will come on January 15th, if you're in China of course. Otherwise, you will have to wait longer as the N1 isn't yet available anywhere else.
Two of the biggest European communication companies are merging, Today, Nokia will officially acquire Alcatel-Lucent in an all-share transaction valued at €15.6 billion. The deal has been approved by the Board of Directors of each company and is expected to close in the first half of 2016, pending approval by Nokia's shareholders, regulatory bodies and other considerations.
It's important to note that Alcatel-Lucent is not connected to the Alcatel phones other than by name, AL manufactures networking equipment similar to Nokia Networks. With their forces combined, the two will tackle the development of 5G tech, the Internet of Things and the increased reliance on cloud services.
In 2014 there were 40,000 R&D employees (20,000 of which from AL) working on a budget of €4.7 billion combined. Both have strong presence in the US, Europe, China and the Asia pacific and work on anything from core networks to cell networks. For last year, the combined sales of the two companies comes out to €25.9 billion with a non-IFRS profit of €2.3 billion.
The company will be called Nokia Corporation and keep the headquarters in Finland (but with a strong presence in France). Current Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri will keep his postion in the new company, Chairman Risto Siilasmaa will keep his post too.
Apple is looking on buying a new Maps service, Nokia is looking on selling its entrie "Here" mapping business. According to a report in Bloomberg, Apple is among the potential buyers for Nokia's HERE mapping business.
Other potential buyers of HERE include Alibaba, Amazon, Facebook, Baidu, and a group of German carmakers among others. A number of private equity firms are also said to be interested.
Nokia has been working with a financial advisor on the sale of its mapping unit. The Finnish company is seeking more than €3 billion (about $3.2 billion), with the first bids due to arrive at the end of next week. Nokia has been busy making headlines lately. The company acquired Alcatel-Lucent for €15.6 billion. It is also rumored to return to making phones next year.
Rumors about Nokia coming back to the smartphone market is confirmed. It's True, Nokia will make a strong return to the Market with a line-up of Android smartphones Next year (2016).
Nokia sold its device business to Microsoft a year ago and it signed a non-compete clause preventing the company from producing smartphones under the Nokia brand until December 31, 2015 and feature phones under the Nokia brand for a decade.
Nokia used wisely these non-compete clauses and outed the powerful Nokia N1 tablet early this year. The N1 is designed by Nokia, including its Z Launcher for Android, but the rights for the branding, manufacturing, marketing and distributions were licensed to Foxconn.
The President of Nokia China confirmed Nokia is working on Android powered smartphones, which will be probably manufactured in factories in Sichuan, China and will be launched in 2016. He also sheds some light on company's future the Nokia's R&D center will permanently relocate to Sichuan, China.
Nokia once enjoyed the lead position that Samsung does today, but with more authority than even the Korean giant. A large part of that leader status was achieved through a combination of quality products and a loyal fan-following. It did not survive the smartphone revolution due to a series of bad decisions that ultimately resulted in its telecommunication production department being sold off completely to Microsoft. However, Nokia is about to make a comeback to compete against the likes of Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and a host of other companies that are all dedicated to the cause.
We have a report from Weibo that the flagship Nokia smartphone (NOT the D1C) which will be released in 2017 may sport a 5.2-inch/5.5-inch 2K display. Additionally, Nokia (HMD) is bringing the Carl Zeiss optics from the Lumia-series to this one as well. Unfortunately, rumors are also indicating that Nokia will opt for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. Given that the chip is already not flagship-grade anymore, since the Snapdragon 821 is out and about, I would be very surprised if Nokia releases a flagship phone that's powered by the SD 820 in 2017, when most of the other premium phones will be powered by the Qualcomm SD 835 SoC.

Nokia has recently been at the front of tech news all around the internet, as its comeback is no more a matter of speculations but something that has already begun. The Nokia 6 was recently released in an online flash sale that was exclusive to China. It got sold out in under a minute! As you can imagine, that's exactly the kind of start that HMD was hoping for. Unfortunately, the Nokia 8 and its flagship specs turned out to be nothing more than a rumor. Nevertheless, we have recently received reliable (somewhat) news from GFXBench that Nokia might be in the process of launching a huge tablet. How huge you ask? 18.4-inches to be exact!
The 2.65kg tablet will reportedly be launched with beefy specs such as a gigantic 18.5-inch QHD display with 2560 × 1440 pixels resolution, Qualcomm 835 SoC with the Adreno 540 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Check out the screenshot from GFXBench above to see more details. If this turns out to be true, will you be buying one? How much would you pay for this device?

Is it a good idea to bring back a basic phone back from its revered grave into today's world filled with QHD+ displays and 64-bit processors? We are not sure about the answer but we will find out soon as Nokia has just brought back the Nokia 3310, albeit with some improvements.
Dimensions: 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm (4.55 x 2.01 x 0.50 in)
SIM: Single SIM (Mini-SIM) or Dual SIM (Mini-SIM, dual stand-by)
Display: 2.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels
16MB internal storage with a micro-SD card slot
2-mp rear camera with LED flash
1,200mAh removable battery with 22 hours of talk time, over 600 hours of standby time and 51 hours of music playback.
Bluetooth v3.0, A2DP, FM, micro-USB v2.0.
Lastly, we also have the iconic snake game onboard as expected. The game retains most of its classic charms and adds a bit of graphical prowess and improvements. Here's some gameplay footage from the MWC, brought to you by The Verge.

Despite some awkward flaws, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones are the biggest Android smartphones in the market right now. The LG G6 is its closest market competitor right now, but the older Qualcomm Snapdragon chip doesn't really help its cause much. As the iPhone 8 is still quite far off in terms of being released, the upcoming Nokia 9 could be Samsung's only real competitor, if the rumoured specs of the HMD smartphone turn out to be true. Cheek the rumoured spec sheet below to see what we mean.
5.5-inch QHD OLED display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
6GB of RAM
64GB/128GB internal storage
22-megapixel dual lens Carl-Zeiss camera on the back
12-megapixel front camera
3800 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4 support
IP68 water and dust certification
Android 7.1.2 Nougat
Nokia OZO audio VR ready sound
The specs do look mighty impressive, especially the OLED QHD display and Nokia OZO audio. However, it isn't only the specs but the popularity of the Nokia name coming back into business as well. We will have to wait and see if it turns out to be as stellar a device as we are hoping for it to be. In the meanwhile, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are the best Android phones you can buy right now (pre-order to be precise!).

Nokia has come back with some really affordable yet feature-rich smartphones in the market. In an event in India, Nokia unveiled it the Nokia 2.2 which will be the cheapest smartphone right now that comes with Android One out of the box. While the Nokia is available at only 99 euro in the European countries, it has price tag of 6999 Indian Rupees in India. At first, it sound like an entry-level smartphone with not so much to offer but it in real it is quite opposite in fact. The display is 5.71-inch large with a water drop notch on the top. The display has high brightness which gives you a very vivid and sharp colors. The bezels around the display is quite thick but at this price who really cares about the bezels.
The device has a removable polycarbonate back cover with a reflective finish that gives it an attractive appearance. Another highlight of the Nokia 2.2 is a separate button for Google Assistant. Nokia 2.2 is powered with a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 Soc. It comes in two models - 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. It doesn't have any fingerprint scanner but features face unlock ability. The battery is removable and has 3,000mAh capacity. It has 13MP camera lens on the rear side with flash, and house a 5MP camera at the front side for taking selfies. It can shoot video at 1080p which is High Defination.
One of the highlight of the Nokia 2.2 is its support for two years of OS updates and three years of security updates. The device is the first in the market with Android 9 Pie out of the box at this price. It will be cheapest phone to get Android Q. The Nokia 2.2 is available in two colors - Black and Steel. You can buy these in India starting June 11. You can also choose to pre-order the phone via Nokia Phones pages.
Who could forget the Nokia 3310? And then Nokia just kind of disappeared from the landscape of the smartphone industry. The good news is, Nokia is back. And this time, with a big screen, big battery and small price. The company is claiming for two-day long battery time. It seems too much but we have seen Nokia handset with a long battery time, so we can trust it. The Nokia 3.2 is available to buy from Amazon starting from £129.99 which makes it highly affordable smartphone. There are two color options: black or grey steel.
With this price tag, you get 6.26-inch HD display, Snapdragon 429 chipset, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage and Android 9 Pie. You can go for the expensive model tough, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, if you are like me who download so many apps at a time and keeps hundreds of pictures in their smartphone. Also, 3GB of RAM should give the Nokia 3.2 a little more speed when it comes to playing video games or using apps, although don't expect too much speed as it is an only entry-level smartphone. Nokia is targeting budget-conscious consumers who don't use their devices much.
The selling point for Nokia 3.2, however, is its two-day battery time even with a large screen. The battery is 4,000mAh and with an only 720p display, the power consumption demand isn't much. Nokia is by far the most affordable rival to the Moto G in the UK. It has AI features like biometric face unlock that is pretty cool for such a modest device. You can also use Google assistant - giving you options to set timers, schedule reminders, play music or ask for the nearest sushi restaurant. .If you are a Nokia user, let us your experience with Nokia devices.
The long wait of Nokia fans in India has finally come to an end. The company launched its flagship smartphone Nokia 9 PureView in India.

For the protection it has corning gorilla glass 3. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is paired with up to 6GB RAM and 64GB storage which can be expended further. The android One smartphone has a triple rear cameras with a 48MP primary sensor and ZEISS optics. You also get a 20MP selfie camera, fingerprint sensor for security at the rear side, a USB type-c port for connectivity, and a 3500mAh battery.
It is stylish mid-range smartphone with strong hardware features and promises a smooth user experience. It has a dedicated physical button for the Google Assistant. Nokia 7.2 is guaranteed to get two major OS updates in the future and security updates for three years. If you are interested to purchase the Nokia 7.2 from offline stores using HDFC bank credit card. If you buy the phone from Nokia online store, you will receive a gift card. These offers are valid till October 31.
Perhaps it is the price factor, or increasing competition, the phone manufacturers are launching smartphones in the mid-range market which brings us to the latest phone - Nokia 7.2, another budget-friendly phone from Nokia. Since it's a phone by Nokia, we can expect decent hardware specs and a great battery life. The price tag falls somewhere between Moto and OnePlus in terms of its overall aesthetic appeal. The Nokia 7.1 appeared last year and now we have its successor. It has a matte back and available in green, charcoal, and white colors. The display is 6.3-inch and has a 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution.
The screen is LCD and reasonably bright but you can't compare it with a very high-end display, though the difference isn't noticeable with naked eyes. The bezels are thicker than you would see on the recent phones, and the notch cuts into the screen a little awkward, but you have to bear in mind how affordable this phone is.
The phone is powered by snapdragon 660 and has 4gB or 6GB of RAM, paired with 64GB or 128GB storage, which is expandable via memory card. With a new phone, it seems responsive and fast, even when switching between several apps, you may feel some delay. The device runs on the Android 9 Pie out of the box and ensures Android updates for two years, and security updates to keep your phone protected for another year. The Nokia 7.2 has a triple-lens 48MP+8MP+5MP camera that can get some very good shots in well-lit situations, and some satisfactory shots in low light, though noise can start to be a problem as the illumination wanes.
Nokia 6.2 isn\'t a mid-range smartphone but if you are looking for an outstanding visual experience with a powerful processor, three rear cameras, and a big battery. This is the phone for you. It is not easy to compete with Nokia when it comes to delivering a powerful phone at an unbeatable price. The Nokia 6.2 has a premium glass structure, a strong polycarbonate frame, and a large 6.3-inch display panel to showcase all of your apps, games, and movies. The Full HD+ resolution means all of your content is nice and sharp, but the real deal is its support for HDR. Not only can it play native HDR content, but it can also convert the SDR movies into HDR once for a more vibrant visual treat.
For photography, the camera has a triple camera system - primary camera 16MP, an ultra-wide camera of 8MP, and a 5MP depth camera to help with portrait images. The camera isn\'t of much high-quality compared to the recent camera system offered by premium phones but it is good enough to keep you clicking and sharing with your friends.
Nokia 6.2 offers much powerful hardware. You will find a snapdragon 636 processing chip, a 4GB of RAM, and a 3500 mAh battery for all day use. The storage is available in 64GB but can be expanded up to 512GB. There is also an NFC chip for Google Pay, a dedicated Google Assistant button, and a clean build of Andriod 9 Pie. The phone comes with Android 9 Pie out of the box with Android one on the top. For charging it has USB-C port. The Nokia 6.2 isn\'t an expensive device, but if you want something cheaper, the Nokia 4.2 could be a solid alternative. Compared to the Nokia 6.2, it offers a low resolution, less RAM, and smaller battery but works well if you are a light user.
We are living in a time when phones cost around $1000 now, Nokia has launched a phone that cost only $250 and it is far better for its price. The latest one-powered budget device brings a sharp device to the smartphone competition, and it manages to win some pride due to its premium design and features. Nokia 6.2 is a modern, solid, budget phone that gets the job done. So what are you getting when buying a $250 phone?
The Nokia 6.2 looks similar to the Nokia 7.2 that costs $350. The Nokia 6.2 is less powerful than that, with less inspiring camera results, but still, it is hard to not like it for providing the specs at this price bracket. The device has rather a big 6.3-inch screen and 1080 resolution. It is a lovely phone with saturated colors; decent viewing angles; and an HDR rating. The touch response of the screen is good; the processor is a little outdated as its using the Snapdragon 636 chip that doesn\'t improve the overall performance of the phone. The brightness levels are good enough.
It has a power button on the side, while the left side has a dedicated key for Google Assistant that most of the Nokia now equipped with. The phone is powered by a 3500mAh batter that is good enough for medium use to survive a full day. The phone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box with UI similar to any Pixel phone. It has already received two security updates, going from November to December 2019. The phone has three rear cameras. The primary camera has a 16MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle, and a dedicated depth sensor. The phone comes with an 8MP front camera which isn\'t good enough to click a sharp selfie. I wouldn\'t recommend the phone if you are into selfies. The other drawback is the slow 10W charging that almost takes two hours to fully charge the phone.
The Nokia 9 PureView didn't do well on the sales charts. The devices offered a lot, with Nokia created hype around its ambitious 5 camera setup that could collect up to 10 times more light than a single smartphone camera color sensor. Although, the company couldn't execute it well, with its light and Zeiss co-engineered camera technology couldn't live up to the consumer's expectations. The NPU claimed that Nokia canned its partnership with light and the 9.1 PureView and currently focusing on the 9.2 PureView instead.
NPU states that the phone will be released in the first quarter of 2020. Nokia's collaboration with the German optics manufacturer, ZEISS, is almost certain to continue for the next device but the device won't be using the fancy camera technology that was in the Nokia 9. This didn't come as a surprise that the phone will be leaving out the technology in favor of a more conventional approach. The Nokia 9 uses complex image processing and algorithms to capture a single shot from five cameras. But this year, the Nokia 9.2 will be using the conventional Toshiba lenses. The front-camera might feature a 32-megapixel sensor.
As per the rumor, the 9.2 PureView will feature the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset, along with a large primary camera at the rear side. The company delayed the release of the phone to use the upgraded SoC, which means we won't be having the Nokia 9.2 until the autumn. We hope that the Nokia will release its new flagship smartphone at the MWC 2020 next month, given that HMD Global used the Barcelona event to launch the Nokia 9 PureViewlast year. With the conventional camera technology, we could see this device around the $600 price mark alongside wireless charging and headphone jac. That's around the same price its predecessor was last year.
Nokia Mobile is sending official invitations for the upcoming launch of new Nokia devices. The press release suggests that the event is scheduled, as always, a day before the start of Mobile world congress 2020 in Barcelona. On 23rd February, it started at 16:00 Barcelona time, new Nokia devices will be announced.
According to the different leaks, users can expect to see 5 different Nokia devices including 3 smartphones and 2 feature phones. A 5G Nokia 8.2, Nokia 5.2, Nokia 1.3, and a new device called Nokia 400 4G will be released.Nokia 8.2 is a 5G device but has a price tag that may attract even price-conscious users. The Nokia 82. Could hit the market with a price tag for less than 500 euro. Some of the cheapest 5G devices on the market right now are the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Samsung Galaxy A90 but have a higher price than 500 euro.
Nokia 8.2 is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 765 and chipset designed to bring 5G connectivity to the users.
It should be paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage at least to support the 5G network. The design has very minimal bezels and uses a pop-up camera with the 64-megapixel lens for the selfies. The phone will have a physical fingerprint scanner at the back of the device and there will be a headphone jack as well. The leaks suggest that the Nokia 8.2 might have a 3,500mAh battery that may not be enough for heavy-users considering the large display and extra battery drain requirements due to 5G connectivity.
Nokia has done a great job in the middle-range smartphone that feels premium while retaining a great software experience. The next upcoming smartphone could be the Nokia 5.2 - also codenamed as "Captain America". The phone is likely to be launched as the Nokia 5.2 and is tipped to be priced at $180. HMD Global began sending out invites to its MWC 2020 event last week, confirming its plan of unveiling new phones at the event. While the company hasn't provided any details on the products that it will be launching at the upcoming event. The ever-reliable tipsters Evan Blass has shared two images of Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 5.2.
The phone will be released with a waterdrop notch display. The phone features a quad-camera setup that looks similar to a circular module. The design is inspired by the Marvel superhero's shield. The rest of the phone's specs may include 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The device may come up with a display size of a 6.0-inch full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 ratio. The phone will be using Android Pie out of the box. For audio, it uses a 3.5 mm headphone jack. As per leaks, the phone may have a 3,500mAh battery. It is expected to be released in Barcelona, Spain on February 23.
Nokia 5.2 is a solid device on a budget that does nearly everything a regular phone user needs. It offers a clean Android experience. Nokia users can enjoy up to two major OS upgrades and timely security patches and updates for up to three years. The phone will be powered by the Qualcomm snapdragon 665 octa-core processor. The device has a 16MP front camera for selfie images. Although the phone is being launched in 2020, to keep the phone inexpensive, it doesn't have support for 5G connectivity. For security, the phone has a face unlock and fingerprint sensor.
HMD Global is about to release the Nokia 9.2 and just before its launch its predecessor Nokia 9 PureView gets the price cut. The Nokia 9 Pure view is now starting from Rs. 35,000 in India that comes with 8GM RAM and 128GB internal storage. For some reasons, HMD Global decided to skip the 9.1 entirely and moved to 9.2 instead. There is no confirm news about its price but rumors suggest that it will be the first Nokia phone with 5G support and may cost around $600 with 256GB storage.
The Nokia 9 pure view had a crazy Penta-camera setup which promised to capture 10 times more light than a single camera sensor. However, the camera failed to live up to the hype and HMD Global decided to return to more standard camera configuration and moved to a higher level of a megapixel. Another rumor suggests that this will be an under-glass 32MP front-facing camera making the 9.2 the first phone to use this technology.
The device will be powered by the powerful Snapdragon 865 processing chip and will support 5G network connectivity. Recently BenGeskin released the pictures of possible renders of Nokia 9.2. According to the pictures, the smartphone has almost no bezels on the front. The back design uses the Oreo rear quad-camera system instead of the standard camera array. As per the news, the phone will use the Android 10 operating system. Other rumors suggest that the phone will be using 8GB RAM with 128GB internal storage.
Nokia 9.2 also sports a P-OLED display. The screen has a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels and 490 PPI pixel density. For the front camera, the phone is using a 24MP camera lens. On the rear, it has four cameras all 13MP. The rear cameras have features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, Touch to focus, etc. This device runs on a big 4500 mAh battery but there is no information on the fast charge capacity. For connectivity, it comes with WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Volte, NFC and more.
HMD Global was expected to launch its upcoming smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona but the company had to delay the release due to coronavirus pandemic. The company called the successor of the Nokia 9 as a Nokia 9.3 PureView. A fresh wave of leaks suggests that the next smartphone is said to feature 108-megapixel primary camera and 120Hz display. The smartphone might feature an array of camera sensors at the rear side - just like the Nokia 9 PureView. One of these camera sensors will be able to offer the optical image stabilization technique as well. The phone is now expected to available in the second half of this year after the first release was canceled due to coronavirus situation.
A reputable Nokia Tipster has shared some leaks about the smartphone. The phone might be using either a 108-megapixel sensor from Samsung or a 64-megapixel sensor from Sony. These sensors will be used to record video from the mobile camera. As per leaks, HMD CPO wanted to use only the 108-megapixel sensor and abandon the system of simultaneous operation of several sensors. The configuration of other cameras is unknown right now, but it is safe to guess that there will be telephoto, macro, and depth sensors along with the primary camera.
To display a high-refresh-rate at 120Hz the phone needs a high-capacity processor under the hood. The company will use the OLED screen on the display and a powerful Snapdragon 865 processor. The previous model used Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 plus. Another leak suggests the color options - Polar night, bold and lighter shades similar to copper hues HMD Global has already introduced before.
Recently Nokia released a press release that highlight the news regarding its high-speed 5G internet connectivity. According to Nokia, it has achieved the world's fastest 5G speeds in its over-the-air network in Dallas, Texas, utilizing 800 MHz of commercial millimeter-wave 5G spectrum and Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) functionality, Nokia achieved 5G speeds of up to 4.7 Gbps in tests performed on base station equipment being deployed in major U.S. carriers' commercial networks.
Earlier this record was set by Ericsson just a few months ago. Using dual connectivity enables operators to transmit data simultaneously across 5G and 4G networks, achieving higher transmission rates than using either technology independently. This solution will not only provide subscribers with unrivaled mobile broadband speeds but also enable carriers to sell various latency-sensitive enterprise services, such as network slicing for mission-critical applications.
Tommi Uitto, president of Mobile Networks at Nokia, commented: "This is an important and significant milestone in the development of 5G services in the U.S, particularly at a time when connectivity and capacity are so crucial. It demonstrates the confidence operators have in our global end-to-end portfolio and the progress we have made to deliver the best possible 5G experiences to customers. We already supply our mmWave radios to all of the major US carriers and we look forward to continuing to work closely with them moving forward." Nokia has also rolled out an OS update to Nokia 5.1 plus to 32 countries that include India as well. With the Android 10 update, the Nokia 5.1 has the latest OS.
You can expect a good smartphone around $400 that will do most of the stuff people would want from a mobile, but what about a phone that costs almost half of that? HMD Global launched a new smartphone that costs just $199, and yet it doesn't sound too bad when it comes to its specs and features. The Nokia 5.3 has a large screen although, this isn't as sharp or bright as most phones are nowadays, but works great at this price.
The rear side of the device is plastic-made but comfortable to hold. The display is 6.55-inch large and weighs only 185 grams. It is manageable with one hand. There are two buttons on the phone - the power button and the volume button. On the opposite side, you can find the button for Google assistant which is pretty easy to mess up when picking up the phone or holding in one hand. The phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack and a single speaker at the bottom.
On the back of the side, there is a quad-camera system that is housed slightly above the fingerprint sensor. The design is okay and doesn't look too cheap or ugly that screams ‘cheap' when holding in your hands. The phone is available in cyan, sand, and charcoal color. Even the phone is only priced at $199, but it comes with four lens camera sensor.
The primary camera is of 13-megapixels and an f/1.8 aperture, with a secondary 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The selfie camera is housed inside the teardrop notch and of 8-megapixel. Nokia's 5.3 camera isn't good though. It could still improve as the software is too slow for four-cameras. I'd rather take a single camera phone than a four-camera phone that takes mediocre phones and painfully slow.
The phone is powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor with either 3GB, 4GB, or 6GB of RAM. It's the same chip used in the Motorola Moto G8, the Moto G Fast, and the G Power, and the results are similar. That means you can play games on the device but its' not a ROG phone 2. It may not give you the smoothest experience but never halt or devolves into an unplayable situation.
Nokia C3 is one of the most budget-friendly smartphones you can find today and it just got released in China. It comes with a relatively large display and old-fashioned design with thick bezels on the top and bottom. The phone is powered by an octa-core processor that has a single camera on the rear side. The Nokia C3 is up to sale at CNY 699 or roughly $100 for the sole 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. It comes with Nordic blue and gold sand color options. It is currently available for pre-orders in the country and will be sold in markets starting August 13.
The Nokia C3 is a dual-SIM phone that runs on the latest stable version of Android with a custom user interface on the top. It features a 5.99-inch HD+ IPS display with 400 nits of brightness. The phone is powered by an octa-core processor, believed to be from Unisoc, and paired with 3GB RAM. The phone has a single 8-megapixel camera on the rear side with an f/2.0 lens. The device also has a LED flash. For selfies, the phone comes with a 5-megapixel image sensor with an f/2.4 lens, housed in the giant bezel on the top of the display.
The Nokia C3 comes with 32GB of onboard storage that is expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card slot. The phone uses Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4G, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS for connectivity, a 3.5mm headphone jack to listen to music or radio, and a Micro-USB port for charging. The phone is powered by a 3,040mAh battery with 5W charging that can sustain a single charge up to 31 hours of audio playback and up to 7 hours of video playback as claimed by the company.
The sensors on the Nokia C3 include an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, acceleration sensor, and a fingerprint scanner on the back. There is also an Xpress button that can be mapped with a feature or an app for quick access. The phone measures 159.9x77x8.69mm and weigh 184.5 grams.
Recent rumors about the next upcoming smartphones suggest another low-budget smartphone by the HMD Global called Nokia 2.4. The device was spotted at Geekbench in the last month. A fresh report by Nokia Power User has revealed some important spec information on the device. As per leaks the highest variant of the Nokia 2.4 will have 3GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will also come in 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variants. The device will be available in three color options such as grey, blue, and purple.
The Nokia 2.4 is reported to have a big 4,500mAh battery that is enough to keep it alive all day long with a single charge with support to fast charging. The phone features a 6.5-inch screen with 271 PPI and IPS LCD. The phone is powered by the octa-core 2GH MediaTek Helio P22 processor. The device supports dual SIM options. The expected launch date in India is around October this year but this isn't confirmed yet. Nokia 2.4 might be available fewer Rs. 10,000 in the Indian market. Coming to the FCC listing, the report states that the Nokia 2.4 has four variants - TA-1277, TA-1270, TA-1274, and TA-1275, out of which the TA-1270 is a dual-SIM variant. The rest of the specifications remain the same across all the variants.
According to the leaks, the Nokia 2.4 will feature a 13-MP primary camera with a 2-MP dual camera like the predecessor Nokia 2.3 phone. It houses a front-camera of 5-MP for selfies. The phone will come with an Android 10 operating system out of the box. Although we are not sure about its launch date yet, it could be one of the phones that HMD Global may launch at the IFA 2020 tech trade show in the next month.
HMD Global launched Nokia 8.3 today in an online event that was shown on Nokia's official YouTube channel. The phone is a big leap of faith for the company. The phone appears alongside the black female James Bond in no time to die, while also using the 5G. The device offers pretty much all flagship features with the mid-range price tag, which is by far the most happening category of the mobile industry in 2020. But delaying this phone result in stiff competition from Samsung and iPhone.
The Nokia 8.3 emerged as a flagship smartphone with 5G network connectivity while the Nokia 9 series seemingly disappeared with most of the market dominated by budget-friendly smartphones. It is a big phone with an aluminum core and Gorilla glass with a metalization process used to create the colors of the rear panel called polar night. There are small bezels at the bottom of the display, although we appreciate the curves to the rear side which make it fit in one hand nicely. To keep the back clean, they have put the fingerprint scanner on the side which looks okay.
There is a separate Google Assistant button on the left-side and placed opposite to the fingerprint scanner. There is a 3.5-mm headphone jack on the bottom of the phone with only one speaker. The phone has a 6.81-inch LCD with a 60Hz display refresh rate. Nokia 8.3 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G and comes in two models with 6 and 8GB RAM. The phone comes with 64 and 128GB storage internal storage that is further expandable via microSD.
Nokia 8.3 uses a quad-camera system with 64MP main (16MP photos), f/1.89 as a primary camera lens, 12MP ultra-wide, f/2.2 secondary, 2MP macro lens with f/2.4, and a 2MP depth camera lens. The front camera is of a 24MP lens with f/2.0. There is no optical zoom in this camera, but you can pinch up to 10x zoom if you can afford a picture with less quality.
HMD Global is expecting to launch another Nokia smartphone. The new Nokia 7.3 5G features a circular camera module on the rear side of the phone. The module houses a quad-camera system that consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera lens and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera lens. There would be a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel micro camera. These aren't as useful as the other two lenses, but together they serve the purpose of having a quad-camera system. There is an LED flash on the left side of the camera with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner just below it. Nokia has used plastic on the rear side to reduce the manufacturing cost of the phone.
The rumors suggest that the phone is going to feature a 6.5-inch punch-hole full HD+ display with slim side bezels, and a thicker bottom bezel with Nokia branding on it. The top-left corner of the phone displays a small camera for taking a selfie. This one is rumored to boast a 24-megapixel resolution, although there isn't much information available right now. Overall dimensions of the phone make it taller than its predecessor but smaller than the Motorola Moto G9 Plus.
Nokia 7.3 is one of the phones that support 5G network connectivity. To support 5G the phone is using the Snapdragon 690 chipset that's also going to power the next OnePlus Nord. According to reports, it'll be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard. MicroSD card support is highly likely and pricier 6/64GB and 8/128GB versions are on the way too. The Nokia 7.3 will likely to be launched in October or November alongside the Nokia 6.3. The phone is set to price at 399 euros in Europe.
Nokia is known for its affordability and extraordinarily long battery life. And now at the end of the year, HMG Global released another smartphone in the budget category- known as Nokia 2.4. The smartphone runs the latest stock Android 10 operating system out of the box and the latest entry in the budget-category by the company. The phone is an affordable handset and its specifications also fell in the same category.
It features a 6.5-inch HD+ display with 700x1600 pixel resolution, which is good enough to watch videos or play games. The device has a water drop notch in the front. It is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and is run by a large 4,500 battery pack with the regular 5w charging support which definitely disappoints users looking for fast charging.
The phone isn't too slow or too fast. It features 3GB of RAM which is great if you are a medium level user. The phone is available in two variants with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, which can be further extended via a microSD card slot. Since the device runs on Android One, it runs on the stock Android 10 OS, and most properly receives the Android 11 update as well.
The phone has a dual-camera setup on the rear side, with a 13-megapixel primary sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth lens for portrait shots. The selfie camera is a 5-megapixel camera and the device sports the usual connectivity features like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, micro USB port for charging. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side with a separate physical button for Google Assistant. The phone only weighs 189 grams. Nokia 2.4 will be available in India for 10,399 INR (estimated around $140). You can purchase the phone in the dusk, Fjord, or charcoal color. It is currently available for pre-booking throughout India, and so far, we don't have any official date when it will hit the market. So, stay tuned for more updates.
Nokia 5.4 is the latest upcoming smartphone to be launched and just after the phone was seen on the US FCC website, its specs surfaced online. According to the leaks, the smartphone is going to feature an HD+ display and will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processing chip. The Nokia 4.2 specifications were leaked by the website Mysmartprice along with the tipster Sudhanshu. These specs are the same as were introduced by the US FCC site last week that highlighted a new Nokia phone with a model number TA-1333, which is believed to be the said smartphone.
As per the reports, the Nokia 5.4 comes with dual-SIM and features a 6.39-inch HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The phone is also said to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You can extend the internal storage via a microSD card up to 256GB via a dedicated slot if needed. Further, the Nokia 5.4 is said to feature the quad-camera setup at the rear side that included a 48-megapixel primary camera sensor, a 5-megapixel secondary camera sensor, with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
For selfies, the Nokia 5.4 is rumored to have a 16-megapixel selfie camera sensor on the front side. The camera could be featured on a hole-punch display cutout. The phone runs Android 10 out the box and is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. For security, the phone has integrated a fingerprint sensor as well as an accelerometer, ambient light, and a proximity sensor. The phone offers options for Wi-Fi Bluetooth, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for connectivity and audio.
After getting news of the Nokia 5.4 mid-range, the company has finally launched the smartphone on the European continent. The phone is meant to replace the older Nokia 5.3 that was released in March this year. While the phone features a round-shaped camera house just like its predecessor, it has a different punch-hole design to house the front-facing camera. Some of the major highlights of the Nokia 5.4 smartphone include a tall aspect ratio screen.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 662 processing chip. Nokia 5.4 has one of the best build quality and is known for its reliable smartphones. The company offers a 2-year warranty as standard but the phone usually lasts much longer than that. The Nokia 5.4 comes with 3 years of monthly security updates, and up to 2 sets of operating system upgrades.
Nokia 5.4 offers a larger landscape for streaming, gaming, and internet browsing on an impressive 6.39-inch HD+ screen. The has generous two-day battery life that is supported by Adaptive battery technology that prioritizes power to the things you use the most, you are in control the whole day.

There is a capacitive fingerprint scanner below the camera sensor. The phone has 4GB RAM as standard and offers two variants of internal storage in 64GB and 128GB. You can further extend the internal storage via microSD. The phone ships with Android 10 through an update to Android 11 is already in the works. The Nokia 5.4 is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that charges over USB-C at 10W speed. The phone is available in purple and blue color options and will sell for 189 euro in the European area.
2020 has ended and we have seen many new smartphones by some major and small mobile phone manufacturers. In the smartphone department, Nokia started last year with the launch of Nokia C2, which was then followed by Nokia 5.3, Nokia 8.3 5G, and Nokia C3. The Nokia 2.4 and Nokia 3.4 were released in September. They completed their launch of new smartphones with the Nokia C1 plus and Nokia 5.4. So, we got three devices from the C series, two from the 5 series and one from the 1,2,3, and 8-series each. If we keep the count of last year's smartphones we might get to see the new Nokia 6,7, or 9 this year before anything else.
As the last year was about to end, there was some news about three new Nokia batteries being certified by the authorized bodies. According to the new certifications, the future Nokia smartphones might carry the 3,900mAh, 4,470mAh, and 5,050mAh batteries. The first two models were certified by TÜV Rheinland Japan and the latter by Element Materials Technology.
At least three new Nokia smartphones can be expected based on these certifications. We are not sure if there will be only three models or more that will appear as Nokia 3.4 and Nokia 5.4 share the same battery, so we can expect the same for the future smartphones as well. Currently, the maximum battery capacity supported by Nokia smartphones is 4,500mAh battery, that too only in Nokia 8.35G and Nokia 2.4. Hence, a 5,000mAh+ will be the first significant upgrade Nokia phones are going to have this year. Hopefully, it will come with the fast charging option. We don't know what next year will bring for us but I think it is time for Nokia to introduce bigger batteries and fast-charging technology to more devices.
Samsung has issued a court filing regarding its collaboration with Microsoft on Windows Phone and states that it refuses to fulfill its end of the deal as it now sees the software giant as a direct competitor. The business collaboration agreement between the two companies sees Samsung pay Microsoft north of $1 billion in patent royalties and $6.9 million interest due to payment delays. Microsoft took action in early August in an attempt to collect the cash.
However, that's unlikely to happen if the New York federal court, where the filing is made, decides in favor of Samsung. The company says that because of the Nokia acquisition, Microsoft violated its 2011 deal with Samsung. According to the deal, Samsung had to pay Microsoft royalties in exchange for a patent license on its Android smartphones.
"The agreements, now between competitors, invite charges of collusion," Samsung said in the filing. However, Microsoft won't give up and is "confident" in the strength of its case. We'll continue to cover the development of the court case between the two companies and inform you if Microsoft will get its patent licensing fees or if Samsung will save $1 billion.
The HERE Maps beta for Android, which launched a couple of weeks ago has just received its first update. The new release brings support for the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop API 21, while also coming with some bug fixes and performance tweaks.
The update ensures that the downloaded voice files are kept safe and sound. The fix means that you will have to redownload any non-English voices but they won't accidentally disappear anymore if you're using a "cache cleaner" app on your smartphone.
Unfortunately since HERE Maps is only available through the company's website (No Google Play Love), you will have to side-load the new APK to enjoy the update. Download it from Here.
