HMD confirms the camera app on Nokia smartphones will be updated

You might remember that HMD got its hands on the Lumia Camera UI design patent some months ago. At that time we hoped the Finnish company will bring it to some or all Nokia smartphones, and it looks like we weren’t wrong.

HMD’s Global Chief Product Manager Juho Sarvikas confirmed that his company plans to update the Camera app on all its Nokia smartphones in the near future. He also hinted that the update will include many of the features (if not all) that made the Lumia Camera UI so reliable.

Well, considering the current Camera app on HMD’s Nokia smartphones …


Nokia 2 announced: Stock Android, solid 2-day battery life, ultra-affordable price tag

HMD and Nokia just unveiled the latest affordable device in its device lineup, the Nokia 2. What makes it a noteworthy entrant? Let’s break those specs down and see what the fuss is all about.
Ticking inside the Nokia 2 is the Snapdragon 212, a 1.2GHz chipset comprising four ARM Cortex-A7 cores. Although it’s a rather humble chipset, the Snapdragon 212 seems like the perfect match for the Nokia 2: aside from being extremely affordable and LTE-ready, the real ace up its sleeve is its exceptional power efficiency. Couple that one with the large, 4,100mAh battery …

Nokia 2 leaked specs confirm it will be cheapest HMD smartphone

The unannounced Nokia 2 is supposed to be the cheapest Android smartphone to be launched by HMD. Although we’re expecting the entry-level handset to be unveiled in early 2018, there’s a chance that the Finnish company will launch the Nokia 2 by the end of the year.

We’ve been given a sneak peek at HMD’s low-end smartphone a while ago courtesy to Evan Blass, but now we have a little bit more information about what’s under Nokia 2’s hood. An AnTuTu benchmark listing reveals some of the phone’s specifications such as processor, memory, display, and software.

The Nokia 2 will pack a Qualcomm …

The Nokia 8 screen is inexcusably bad

The Nokia 8 has got a flagship-grade Snapdragon 835 system chip, fast performance and aspirations to be a true Android flagship like all the rest, but it has one critical flaw: its screen is inexcusably bad.
While the Google Pixel 2 XL is facing harsh criticism over the blue tint that appears when you look at its screen from an angle, the Nokia 8 has it even worse: a similarly bad blue tint is actually apparent even when you have the phone square, facing you.
First, let’s look at the specs: the Nokia 8 ships with a …

HMD kicks off Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Nokia 8

HMD has just announced it will soon start a beta program for Android Oreo for Nokia 8. The so-called Nokia phones beta labs will allow those fans to test software updates before they are released to the masses.

The first smartphone that will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update is probably the Nokia 8 since HMD is about to start testing it. However, Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo as well, although that might not happen this year.

Our growing community of beta testers are the first to receive Android 8.0 Oreo. By testing the software ahead …

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 …

Nokia 8 Review


Nokia is back. It has embraced Android and it’s got a Snapdragon 835 flagship phone to compete with the big guns like the iPhones, Galaxies and Pixels. Welcome the Nokia 8.

Nokia has built its flagship smartphone following a few simple principles: keep Android clean and bloatware-free, deliver good performance, and provide timely software updates. In many ways, the Nokia 8 is a “stock” Android phone done right, with little flare except for that new “bothie” camera mode.

There are a few things to keep in mind, though: the Nokia brand is now licensed to HMD Global: a different company …

Nokia 2 briefly listed by US retailer, priced to sell for just $99

After HMD introduced another Android smartphone a few days ago, the Nokia 7, there are only two other handsets we’re now expecting the Finnish company to reveal in the coming months.

The two upcoming smartphones belong to completely opposite price categories. While the Nokia 9 will be HMD’s next flagship, the Nokia 2 is supposed to be the company’s cheapest smartphone to date.

And the good news is there’s a high chance that it will be coming to the United States at some point. Major retailer B&H briefly listed the Nokia 2 on its website, along with information …
