In the days leading up to Black Friday, we saw the Nokia 3.1 drop to $140 at Best Buy. But if you missed out on that or just want something a bit higher-end, Nokia's 6 from 2017 is just $149 on Amazon, $80 off MSRP.Read More
HMD Global has announced that the new Nokia 6.1 is available in the U.S. starting on May 6. Yes, you read that name correctly; instead of going with the more traditional "Nokia 6 2018" (as it was formerly known), HMD opted for the point release moniker. Despite this oddity, this phone packs a great value, coming at $269 for some nice specs.Read More
Nokia kicked off 2018 by announcing a revamped version of the Nokia 6, which is creatively called the Nokia 6 (2018). Last we heard, the new Nokia 6 was supposed to launch in the US this May, but there are listings up today on Amazon and Walmart for the US version of the phone. It can be yours for about $270.Read More
HMD Global has a stellar track record of releasing timely Android firmware updates and its good form continues today. Nokia 3 owners can expect Android 8.0 Oreo to start rolling out to their devices shortly. At the same time, a new page has appeared on the Nokia website providing kernel source code for the Nokia 1 and 6.Read More
HMD Global is fast gaining the reputation as the best Android phone-maker around when it comes to fast OS updates. Its Nokia-branded phones have been updated ahead of the pack more often than not in recent months, and with the news that all future devices will run pure versions of Android (One or Go), the Finnish company has made a strong commitment to continue that good work. We're now hearing that Android 8.1 Oreo is beginning to roll out to the Nokia 5 and the 2017 Nokia 6.Read More
Nokia has been making a pretty substantial comeback in the past year or so. The company just announced four new phones at MWC, and it turns out they, along with all future Nokia phones, will be Android One devices. Despite the first-gen Nokia 6 making it stateside via retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, it was initially unclear whether any of the MWC-announced phones would. We now have confirmation from Juho Sarvikas, HMD's chief product officer.Read More
The Nokia phone brand has been on quite a journey since its heyday in the late nineties and early two-thousands (or aughts, as David would have me write it). After Nokia's smartphone business was sold to Microsoft and became the Windows Phone flagbearer while that was still a thing, the baton has now been passed to HMD Global. HMD has been releasing Android phones under the Nokia name for just over a year now, and it's fair to say the brand is stronger than it has been for a very long time.
At MWC 2018 here in Barcelona, HMD has added to its already burgeoning phone lineup with four devices, three of which are part of the Android One program and an ultra-low-cost Android Go phone.Read More
HMD Global had a good first year making Nokia-branded phones. In 2017, the Finnish company sold 70 million devices across its portfolio of six different Android smartphones and other low-cost feature phones such as the throwback Nokia 3310. HMD is confident of an even better 2018, starting with the launch of four new (well, mostly new) Android phones at MWC in Barcelona.
Before we even get to the new devices, perhaps the headline announcement is that starting with these phones all Nokia releases will be part of the Android One program (with the exception of its first Android Go phone).Read More
