Nokia Here

 

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.

Lumia

 

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.


Display: 1080p
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz
GPU: Adreno 505
RAM: 3GB
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.

windows


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 3310 Pureview

 


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

 

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 Microsoft

 

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.

Nokia Z launcher

 

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.

 

Nokia Z

 

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.

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.

 

Here

 

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 N1

 


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.

 

N1

 

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.

alcatel

 

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.

 

nokia alcatel

 

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.

Nokia Android

 

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 N1

 

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.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



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
2000 Contacts
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 2.2

 

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.


Samsung Microsoft

 

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.

5G Mobile Network

 

Some of the carriers around the workd has just starte offering 4G services in their regions. Well, Japanese carrier NTT DocoMo is already developing the 5th Generation Mobile Network (5G), Samsung and Nokia will participate in the Test of this 5G Network. Samsung announced that 5G would be ready for the public by 2020 and we will starting to see 5G devices in the market by 2021.

 

The testing will involve the usefulness of running 5G speeds on high frequency bands above 6GHz. 5G involves data-transmission at a high-speed of 10Gbps, which is 1000 times the capacity of current 4G LTE. The test will determine how well this frequency will support 10Gbps, even if a large number of devices are trying to connect to the network at the same time, in a small area.

 

5G

Owners in India are reporting they are receiving a new update for their Nokia 3 smartphones. HMD Global has announced it has started rolling out the March Android security update to the smartphone. The over-the-air (OTA) rollout is starting in India and will reach other global regions in stages over the coming weeks.


As usual, pulling in a monthly Android patch OTA is a painless experience and the update should not take long. That means you can update in-between watching Netflix, using bet365, or communicating with friends and be back into the action quickly.


If you don't see the update immediately, even in India, don't worry as it is on its way. March's Android security update weighs in at 100MB, which suggests this is all about shoring up security and making general platform tweaks. Indeed, there are no new features included in this release, which is hardly a surprise.


Google says its monthly security patches are a vital component of the platform that allow Android to remain safe and protect devices. However, because Android is an open ecosystem, many of the monthly patches don't end up on smartphones fast enough.


OEMs are free to change Android as they wish and update the platform when they want, often including holding back updates. On a mass level, delayed updates have caused massive fragmentation across the ecosystem, while on a smaller scale many smartphones are not receiving the full range of Google's security patches.


HMD Global's Nokia 3 is different because it runs a stock Android experience. This is Google's own version of Android, free of the bloatware and added software tweaks OEMs make. Google says Stock Android is both secure and a smooth OS, but OEMs often make it insecure with their changes.


The Nokia 3 does run Stock Android, offering one of the purest Android environments in the smartphone market. Aside from performance benefits, owners of Nokia handsets are also treated to timely security patches. Google launches monthly security patches to its own Pixel smartphones and the Nokia 3 usually receives these updates just a few weeks later.


While that's hugely impressive, the fact the Nokia 3 is two years old and still receiving updates before most flagships is also notable. Highlighting the benefits of Stock Android, the Nokia 3 is a modestly spec'd and affordable device that still receives patches. That is a rarity in the smartphone world.


HMD Global is also allowing the device to stay up-to-date in terms of major Android versions. Back in December, the company rolled out Android Oreo 8.1 to the Nokia 3. Better still, Android 9 Pie is scheduled to be released for the smartphone before the close of the second quarter 2019. Of course, Android Q will launch at the end of the year and it will be interesting to see if the Nokia 3 gets the upgrade.


As for the smartphone itself, it is still a decent budget options two years after its 2017 launch. Costing around $100, the Nokia 3 offers a 5-inch HD screen and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek 6737 CPU paired with 2GB of RAM. While that processor may seem lite, Stock Android and the HD resolution allow for solid performance.


Elsewhere, the Nokia 3 has 16GB of on-board storage that can be expended by 128GB via a MicroSD card. In terms of cameras, the smartphone has an 8-megapixel lens on the rear and another 8-megapixel shooter as its selfie camera on the front.

It isn't very often that Apple finds itself on the receiving end of a lawsuit as it is usually they who are suing other OEMs. However, in a somewhat rare turn of events, Apple was sued earlier by the existing division of Nokia Corp. over patent infringements in Asia, Europe and the US. Although most people think that "Nokia" got sold off to Microsoft, the truth is that the Finnish company had only sold off its telecommunications business to the Windows giant in 2014 and not the entire company.


According to an official statement by Nokia on December 21, Apple has infringed on 40 of its patents, stretched over 11 countries all around the world. All of the infringements have been noted, and filed against the Cupertino giant in courts of both Germany and the United States. To top it off, Nokia has even highlighted the fact that Apple declined the company's offer to legally license a number of its patents concerned with Nokia's inventions and introductions to the industry. It would be interesting to see how Apple reacts to the lawsuits.
