Nokia 6 Arte Black (with extra RAM and 64 GB of storage space) is coming to the US


Back in March, HMD Global (the new company that’s in charge
of selling Nokia-branded phones) unveiled a special edition of the mid-range
Nokia 6. Called Nokia 6 Arte Black, this special handset is coming to the US – several
months after the regular version of the phone was released stateside.

 

The Nokia 6 Arte Black is now listed on Amazon, HMD’s
official retail partner for the US. Unfortunately, the handset is
currently out of stock, with no word on exactly when it’s going to be available
(though soon is probably a good guess). 

 

Amazon will sell the Nokia 6 Arte Black …


For an extra $10 a month, Verizon will allow unlimited plan subscribers to stream video at 4K

When Verizon introduced its Unlimited plan back in February, it originally offered streaming video at 720p. But back in August, Verizon split its unlimited plan into three parts. The lower priced tier called Go Unlimited is priced at $75 a month for one line, and video is streamed at 480p (DVD quality) on smartphones. On tablets, video can be viewed at 720p. For $85 a month for one line, the Beyond Unlimited plan streams video at 720p HD on handsets and 1080p FHD on tablets.

If you want full resolution for your streaming videos on Verizon, pay an extra $10 a month to the nation’s largest …

Google adds two extra months of security updates for Nexus 6P and 5X

For whatever reason, Google has decided to offer Nexus 6P and 5X and additional two months of security patches. The information has been quietly shared with consumers on Google’s support page, so it’s as official as it could possibly be.

Both Nexus 5X and 6P have been previously confirmed to receive security updates until September 2018, but Google changed the end date earlier today. It appears the consumers who own the smartphones will continue to receive security patches until November 2018.

Unfortunately, nothing has changed in regards to the major Android …

Do you pay for extra cloud storage (Drive, iCloud, OneDrive etc.)? How much do you need?

We live in the era of mobile computing, or even post-PC era if you will. Our smartphones are used to access everything from the funny picture we took at that one party, to our favorite music, to that document that we need to be printed for the meeting. And handsets also come with the limitation of sometimes having quite the small storage space.

So, cloud services have emerged — storing your data on a server far away, you can still access it from absolutely any device. In fact, a lot of times it’s easier and faster to just Google Drive a document to yourself, instead of looking for a cable …

Today is your last chance to get unlimited streaming HD video from T-Mobile One for no extra cost

Back in February, Verizon announced its long awaited return to unlimited data. With unlimited video streaming at 720p (HD), Big Red had topped the 480p (DVD quality) resolution that T-Mobile One was streaming unlimited video at. In order to match Verizon, T-Mobile One was upgraded to include T-Mobile One Plus for free. That meant that video on T-Mobile One was now streaming unlimited at 720p (like Verizon), and users could have 10GB of 4G LTE hot spot connectivity.

But T-Mobile’s promotion is coming to an end at the close of business today. Starting April 7th (that’s tomorrow), if you want …

Supposed OPPO Find 9 renders show extra thin bezels and all-screen design

When it comes to elusive smartphones, the Oppo Find 9 has to be it. If we had “vaporware” awards here at PhoneArena, this one would have won for two years in a row now. Announced back in March 2014, the Chinese company’s then-flagship smartphone, the Oppo Find 7 (which succeeded the Find 5), has been left without a heir since – which is incredibly unusual, considering the rapid pace of smartphone development where six-month upgrades (and sometimes less) are hardly surprising. We basically assumed that Oppo quietly retired its Find line in favor of its R-series, yet the odd Find 9 rumor keeps rearing …
