Nokia 6 goes back on sale January 26th

Earlier this month, the Nokia 6 was launched via a flash sale. In just 60 seconds, the entire inventory was all sold. If you missed out on the opportunity to buy the phone the first time around, we have good news for you; the second flash sale will be held on January 26th, which is this coming Thursday. The phone is only available in China, where it is an exclusive of JD.com. Pricing hasn’t changed, which means that the phone will cost the equivalent of $247 USD.

Over one million registrations were received for the first flash sale, but only 10,000 units were reportedly up for sale. You …

Nokia may have just confirmed its Snapdragon 835-powered flagship smartphone

HMD Global’s Nokia 6 has been released in China to some mildly success, but the legendary brand has a long road ahead before regaining its past glory.

To soften up its ascension among world’s most popular smartphone makers, Nokia has prepared a couple of new devices, which will be unveiled throughout the year.

After Nokia 6, the next Android-powered smartphones will be announced by HMD Global at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February. Among them, a flagship smartphone that’s been a bit controversial in the last couple of weeks.

It’s been said that Nokia’s flagship was …

Nokia 6 Sold Out in a Minute in First Flash Sale

HMD Global carried out its Nokia 6 first flash sale in China on e-commerce portal JD.com, and as expected, the device went out of stock in a minute. The mid-ranger created much fervour among the Chinese people, and managed to garner over one million registrations since January 4.

The number of Nokia 6 units that HMD Global made available for the first flash sale is unknown, but the new Nokia Android phone was lapped up in just a minute, reports Anzhuo.cn. If Nokia 6 was a litmus test for checking the audience loyalty to the age-old brand, this response would surely make HMD Global very happy. Nokia 6 had managed to rake in 250,000 registrations in the first twenty four hours as well.

Nokia 6 is the first smartphone with Nokia branding in 3 years, and the mid-ranger has been priced at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 17,000), rather high considering the specifications.

To recap, Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch full-HD display with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The dual-SIM Nokia 6 smartphone comes with a 3000mAh non-removable battery and fast-charging support.

As for optics, Nokia 6 comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and dual-tone flash, as well as an 8-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture. The Android 7.0 Nougat-based Nokia 6 smartphone has USB 2.0 port for connectivity, fingerprint sensor in the front, stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos audio enhancement.

Nokia has slotted an event at MWC 2017 as well, where it is expected to announce few more Nokia-Android phones.

Nokia 6 first Android phone coming February 26 to MWC

BlackBerry isn’t the only megabrand of yesteryear attempting a major comeback. Nokia, too, will unveil its first Android phone, the Nokia 6, to the wider world.

nokia-6-android

Nokia Mobile officially invited press to a February 26 event after teasing the Nokia 6, which is already on sale in China, in a video on its Facebook page (see above). “Get ready!” the post read, “The Nokia 6 is coming to China! More announcements to follow on February 26… Save the date!”

Now we know for sure that the Nokia 6 will launch at Mobile World Congress (also known as MWC), the world’s largest mobile show, which takes place in Spain each year at the end of February.

And Nokia isn’t alone in its quest to return from obscurity. It’s here that BlackBerry will also officially launch its comeback phone, known as the BlackBerry Mercury. Both brands will seek to reclaim some of their past prominence, which has declined to almost nothing in the 10 years since Apple launched its revolutionary iPhone.

HMD, the company that licensed the Nokia name, announced the Nokia 6 for China earlier this month. Although it’s an Android phone, the Nokia 6 won’t run any of Google’s services, like the Google Play Store, Google Maps or your Google Account — these don’t work in China on any phone. So a global release of the Nokia 6 at MWC is crucial for putting the new Nokia on the map.(See specs below.)

HMD owns a 10-year license to exclusively sell Nokia-brand products, branded as Nokia Mobile. To make matters more confusing, “Nokia” still exists as a separate company that sells telecommunications infrastructure equipment and also the pro-grade Ozo camera. Foxconn’s FIH Mobile division is in charge of manufacturing and distributing Nokia phones.

Nokia 6 specs:
5.5-inch screen with 1,920×1080-pixel resolution
16-megapixel rear camera
8-megapixel front-facing camera
Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor
4GB RAM
Aluminum chassis
Android software
Sells in China for 1,700 yuan, which converts to $245, £200 or AU$330

Rumor: Nokia P1 to be announced at MWC 2017 as a high-end, Snapdragon 835-based Android phone

Remember the Nokia P1 Android phone that first caught our attention last summer? While Nokia hasn’t confirmed its existence, we’re now hearing that the handset could be officially announced next month at MWC 2017.

According to Russian publication Worket, the Nokia P1 is based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3 (pictured below), a smartphone released about half a year ago in Japan. However, the new Nokia handset should have enhanced specs, including a Snapdragon 835 processor (Qualcomm’s latest high-end chipset), 6 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of internal memory. Moreover, its 22.6 MP rear camera is expected …

After 24 hours, the Nokia 6 tallies over 250,000 registrations for its January 19th flash sale

Unveiled last weekend by HMD, the Nokia 6 is an exclusive for China’s JD.com online mall. The phone is priced at the equivalent of $245 USD, and those interested in purchasing the device can register for a flash sale taking place on January 19th. Each registration you enter for the handset costs $9, which is deducted from the price of the phone for those who end up buying it via the flash sale.

In the first 24 hours, over 250,000 registrations have been received for the Nokia 6. This is a mid-range model powered by Android. The Nokia 6 is just the first of what will be as many as seven new …

Withings products disappear from Apple stores following Nokia patent kerfuffle


screen-shot-2016-12-24-at-11-28-03-am As much of the rest of us were gearing up for a relatively quiet holiday season, Apple and Nokia were getting ready to go to battle, reigniting a war that had seemingly gone cold in 2011 with a reported $720 million settlement for the use of a number of patents.
Earlier this week, Apple filed suit in California, alleging that Nokia removed certain patents from the deal for the purpose of… Read More

Nokia D1C Android Smartphone Spotted on GeekBench, Revealing Specifications

We all know – and most of us are eagerly awaiting – Nokia’s upcoming return to the smartphone market. In August, a report cited a Nokia executive to claim the company would launch four Android-based devices in the fourth quarter of 2016. Since then, a number of contradictory rumours have surfaced regarding the name and features of the upcoming devices. In late August, two Nokia-branded Android devices – Nokia 5320 and Nokia 1490 – were spotted on GeekBench. Now, a new Nokia device, named D1C, has made its way to the benchmark site.

nokia-d1c-android-smartphone

While the Nokia 5320 is touted to be a high-end device with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 powering it, the D1C appears to be in the mid-range level. The website mentions a Qualcomm octa-core processor powering the handset clocked at 1.4GHz with Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The device is likely to run Android 7.0 Nougat according to the listing.

GeekBench gave the D1C a score of 656 single-core performance and 3120 in multi-score performance which is decent for a mid-range device. Being a benchmark page, the information on the device is still limited.

Nokia’s comeback has been highly anticipated since May when the Finnish company granted HMD Global the exclusive license to create Nokia-branded Android mobile phones and tablets for the next 10 years.

Nokia has already launched an Android-powered device with the N1 tablet, which was received positively by the public, as well as the Z Launcher for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. However, Nokia will be aiming to make a bigger splash with its upcoming smartphones.

With the D1C, Nokia is now expected to launch at least three smartphones before the year ends with no information yet on when the Finnish company is likely to hold the launch event.

Which Windows Budget Phone is Better? The HTC 8S vs. The Nokia Lumia 620

If you’re in the market for a new phone, you might be wondering how you’re going to pay for it. With top of the line new mobiles like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Sony Xperia Z costing well over five hundred pounds, many of us simply can’t afford to buy the mobile that we need. And a mobile is very much a need rather than a want for many of us. As more and more employers require the constant contact associated with a mobile number, and more and more people give up the additional expense of running an unnecessary home land line phone, a mobile phone is becoming an essential item for a lot of people. Fortunately, there are cheap phones available, as long as you shop carefully. And a certain amount of caution is needed when shopping for cheap phone, since you’re not going to want to give up too much performance just to get a low price. You have a few options for good budget smart phones, but which should you choose? You could spend a couple of evenings going through the technical language of a mobile spec sheet to figure out which phone is best for you. Or, you could let us help you out. We’ve taken a close look at some of the best phones for you on the market. We then matched up phones in head to head comparisons to let you see exactly how they differ and which one is the best buy. Looking for the best budget smart phone? Then read on to find out which model wins today’s competition in the category of best phones for you.

Big Contenders…
Both of today’s contenders come from companies that are generally associated with making top of the range expensive devices. Nokia are one of the biggest names on the mobile market, and their Lumia range of Windows phones has been hugely popular with the business market. Like most Windows mobiles, the Lumia range tends to be pretty high price and feature laden. But Nokia have recently decided to make Windows phones more affordable, resulting in the release of three budget Lumia models. We’re looking at the Nokia Lumia 620, the highest featured of the three. It’s a nice phone, though a little pricey for a budget model, but can a Windows phone make a good budget buy? HTC are again better known for their high featured business phones. But they do make a few budget smart phones too. The HTC 8S is another Windows model, and it’s as good looking and sleekly designed as any other HTC mobile. But again, how many features have had to be sacrificed to get that low price?

The Prices…
If you’re shopping for budget cell phones then price is obviously going to be your first concern. The Nokia Lumia 620 is the more expensive device. You’re looking at paying around a hundred and eighty pounds to buy the hand set SIM free. If you want to get the Lumia on contract with a mobile operator then the best deal is going to be with Vodafone, who are offering the device for no money down on a £13 a month contract. The HTC 8S is going to cost you around a hundred and fifty pounds to buy SIM free. For the best contract deals look at options with Orange. They’re currently offering the HTC 8S for no money down on a £15.50 a month contract.

Why Go with the Nokia Lumia 620?
The Nokia Lumia 620 might be a tad more expensive, but it does have a few advantages over the HTC 8S. The most significant advantage is that the Lumia has more internal storage. Internal storage on a mobile determines how much music and data and how many pictures and games you can store on your phone, and in this case the Lumia 620 has an 8 GB internal memory, whilst the HTC 8S has only a 4 GB memory. Another big advantage lies in the Lumia’s Bluetooth support. For frequent users of Bluetooth devices such as car hands free sets, the Lumia runs Bluetooth 3.0 versus the older 2.1 version on the HTC model. This newer version means that you get faster data transfer between your phone and you device, and that your phone uses less battery power when connecting to the said device. The display quality on the Nokia Lumia is a little better. You get around ten per cent more PPI (pixels per inch), technically making the screen sharper and better defined. However, it’s a difficult difference to notice unless the two phones are right next to each other. Finally, the Lumia has an integrated compass, whilst the HTC doesn’t. This will allow you to use map and navigation apps more effectively, since these apps will know where you are even if you’re not moving around.

Why Go with the HTC 8S?
The HTC 8S has a few advantages of its own though. It does have the larger screen, getting a full four inch screen rather than the 3.8 inch screen on the Lumia. This means that your video viewing experience is better, that you can type more comfortably on the on screen keyboard, and that you can read web pages without scrolling around too much. Plus, despite the bigger screen, the HTC is the more portable device. It’s around ten per cent thinner than the Lumia, so it’s easier to slide into your pocket. And it’s lighter too, weighing in at just 113 grams as compared to 127 grams for the Nokia Lumia 620, which for something that you’re probably going to be carrying around with you all day is quite a significant difference.

Which to Buy?
This is a difficult choice, and honestly, both of these phones make a great buy. We really do like the bigger screen on the HTC 8S. However, the extra internal storage on the Nokia Lumia 620, coupled with the better display quality and Bluetooth support really make it worth spending a little extra on this phone.

Sam Jones‘s brother thought that deals from phones for you could be the best way to go. He compared his options using sites like uSwitch and in no time at all he was saving cash.
