The Nokia 5.3 was announced in March and quickly became an affordable favorite with reviewers thanks to its low £150 price tag. Few other phones in that bracket can offer the same level of performance along with a passable camera. HMD Global has now seen fit to launch an iterative update in the form of the Nokia 5.4, and it looks set to be another popular lower-mid-range option.
Over the past few years, HMD Global has followed the Motorola-like strategy of releasing phones at every imaginable price tier. The cheapest option so far was the 2019 Nokia C1, a 3G-only phone aimed at developing countries, but now HMD is releasing a 'Plus' variant with upgraded hardware and software.
A Nokia-branded Android TV set-top box is coming to Europe. Called the Streaming Box 8000, the new device won't actually have anything to do with Nokia or HMD Global, who makes the Nokia-branded Android phones we're all used to now. It costs 100€, but what sets it apart from the masses of cheaper dongles is its faster chipset and a ton of ports.
HMD Global has been one of the leaders in budget Android phones for a while now, using the Nokia brand to sell a wide variety of devices. The Nokia 9 PureView was the company's first shot a flagship phone, but it had a few issues and was only available unlocked. HMD has now returned with a new high-end option: the Nokia 8 V 5G UW.
Last week, speculation started swirling about a Verizon variant of the Nokia 8.3 5G. HMD Global, maker of Nokia-branded Android devices, later released a teaser about a special product launch. Now the phone is official, carrying the distinction of being the first Nokia flagship phone on a major US carrier since the Windows Phone days.
Earlier this year, Nokia announced the world's first truly global 5G phone. Now it looks like the company is preparing to bring that device to the US for the first time. A since-taken-down livestream countdown pointed to a November 9 announcement for a Verizon variant called the Nokia 8 V 5G UW with support for the carrier's speedy (and sparse) ultra wideband network.
There aren't many options for budget phones with clean Android in the United States, though HMD Global has been filling that gap over the past few years with various Nokia-branded devices. Now you can get the Nokia 5.3 for just $176.99, a savings of $23 over the usual price.
Much like Gru, Nokia has always been obsessed with stealing the moon. Okay, maybe that's a stretch, but the company has taken a very keen interest in developing technology for lunar missions. Back in 2018, Nokia was working on a system that would bring LTE connectivity to everyone's favorite lumpy gray rock. Now NASA has agreed to hand over 14.1 million dollars to help make Nokia's dream a reality.
