Retailer confirms Huawei Mate 10 Lite launches in Europe in early November for €349

Huawei Mate 10 is just around the corner, but the flagship won’t come alone. The Chinese company plans to launch many a few derivatives of its Mate 10 meant to cover all price tiers.

The Mate 10 Lite is the mid-range version of Huawei’s flagship. Even though it will retain some the Mate 10 specs like the 18:9 aspect ratio of the display and the amount of memory, it fails to check all the boxes required for a top-tier handset.

For example, Huawei Mate 10 Lite will be powered by a 3,340 mAh battery, whereas the Mate 10 comes with a much larger 4,000 mAh battery. …


Results: would you buy a discounted phone if the retailer uses it to serve you regular ads in exchange?

Amazon’s Prime exclusive phones have been a hot topic last week. With the Nokia 6 added to its roster, the discounted phones got a bit more attention than usual and had users asking themselves “Would I go for this deal?”.

Prime phones are usually midrangers, which you can buy at a $30 – $180 discount, depending on the phone, but there’s a catch. If you get one of these devices, you will also have to endure Amazon ads and offers popping up on your lockscreen at all times. That’s right, no more pictures of your dog or your cousin’s toddler — your lockscreen is now Amazon’s personal “your …

Would you buy a discounted phone if the retailer uses it to serve you regular ads in exchange?

Amazon’s Prime exclusive phones have been quite the topic this week. There are a couple of reasons behind this. For one, Nokia 6 has been added to the roster and we all know that this brand evokes quite a lot of feelings in phone fans. Secondly, Prime phones, usually midrangers, come with a nice discount — from $30 to $180 off, depending on the model.

Of course, there is a catch. If you get a bargain on a Prime exclusive phone, you will also have to endure Amazon ads and offers popping up on your lockscreen at all times. That’s right, no more pictures of your dog …

UK retailer Clove stopped pre-orders for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3310 at HMD's request

Yesterday, we told you that UK retailer Clove had stopped accepting pre-orders for the Nokia 3310 feature phone, and had resumed taking pre-registrations. While a pre-order reserves a phone for the consumer who puts down money to make sure that a unit is held for him/her at launch, a pre-registration simply alerts the consumer via email when pre-orders are starting. Yesterday, there was concern by some Clove customers that  pre-orders were canceled, although that doesn’t seem to be the case.

An email sent out by Clove to customers today states that the pre-order option was taken down, …

UK retailer to start shipping Nokia 3 and 5 smartphones in May, Nokia 6 comes in June

If you’re a Nokia fan or just avid for the latest tech news, then you probably know that HMD won’t bring them to market for another two months or so. Yes, that’s a very long time since all three Nokia-branded smartphones were announced in February.

Hopefully, they will worth the wait since there’s no chance you’ll be getting your hands on either of them until mid-May. After HMD’s Tomislav Himbele had stated all Nokia smartphones unveiled at MWC 2017 would hit the shelves in the second half of Q2, a UK retailer confirmed the information recently.

Chinese retailer adds Nokia 8 placeholder with $465 price tag

HMD Global isn’t supposed to bring any high-end Nokia smartphones at Mobile World Congress this year, if we are to believe the latest reports coming from various sources.

However, that doesn’t seem to bother a particular Chinese retailer, which recently listed a Nokia 8 placeholder, the Finnish company’s rumored the flagship. The listing indicates the smartphone could cost around $465, but since it’s just a placeholder, the final price might be different.

It’s worth noting that the same retailer, JD.com is the exclusive seller of the Nokia 6 in China. On …
