vissha posted a topic in Mobile NewsNokia Nseries Could Be Resurrected, New Mid-Range Smartphone to Be Unveiled HMD might make use of the hugely popular branding We're not going to actually include the Nokia N1 tablet in the Nseries since we'll be referring to smartphones only. The last Nseries phone was the N9, which was a Meego-based device, but an N950 model was launched soon afterwards as a developer-only smartphone. However, rumors coming out of China claim HMD plans to resurrect Nokia's Nseries brand this year, and the first product might be unveiled later this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC). Obviously, these rumors must be taken with a grain of salt, especially that they're a bit confusing. Any true Nokia fan knows the Nseries is a flagship series, so it would make sense for HMD to launch a high-end Nseries device at MWC 2017. But the latest reports say the first Nseries device to be unveiled by HMD will be a mid-range smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 6xx processor. The only evidence the source of the rumor has is a picture of a promo material with the Nseries logo on it. Furthermore, it appears that the said Nokia Nseries smartphone will be the first targeted to reach 50 million units produced, which would be quite an achievement for a company like HMD that has just opened doors. We don't want to ruin it for you, but this seems a bit far fetched and impractical for HMD Global, as the company need s to make sure it can cope with the demand for its smartphones when they go on sale. However, a new Nseries smartphone is not out of the question, so we won't rule it out for the moment. One thing is certain thought, we will get all the answers in just a few weeks, as Nokia and HMD have already announced a joint event for February 26. Source
vissha posted a topic in Mobile NewsNokia and HMD Global Confirm MWC 2017 Launch Event for February 26 Hopefully, a couple of smartphones will be unveiled Despite the fact that Samsung has already confirmed it will not launch the Galaxy S8 at MWC, while Sony is rumored to show its new flagship in secret rooms only, this year's trade fair looks pretty promising when it comes to new devices. After successfully launching its first Nokia-branded smartphone in China, HMD Global will finally reveal its plans regarding the next handsets that will (hopefully) be available worldwide. Aside from the Nokia 6 that's exclusive available for purchase in China though major retailer JD.com, HMD Global plans to launch at least 5 or 6 other Android smartphones by the end of the year. Will it live up to the expectations? At least two other Nokia-branded handsets might be introduced at MWC 2017 on February 26, including the company's first flagship smartphone. Unfortunately, the expectations are very high now that new Nokia-branded phones will be once again available on the market, and we fear that HDM Global's new product might not live up to the hype. However, it's important to note that the Nokia that once was, will never be again. The Finnish giant has already decided to let another company handle the design, manufacturing and sale of Nokia-branded smartphones. Since we're less than one month away from Nokia's launch event, we won't have to wait too long to find out whether or not HMD will manage to meet Nokia fans' expectations. Naturally, it won't be able to appeal to everyone, but it would be nice to know that Nokia's spirit still lives in some (if not all) HMD Global's upcoming products. Source
vissha posted a topic in Mobile NewsNokia 6 Finally Goes on Sale Outside of China for $370 The phone is available in the Philippines in white color Well, it looks like starting tomorrow, the Nokia 6 will be available for purchase in another country, although customers will have to pay more. PinoyTechnoGuide reports major retailer Lazada will begin selling the Nokia 6 in the Philippines. As some of you probably know by now, Nokia 6 is available for purchase in China through JD.com retailer for only $245. However, customers in the Philippines will have to pay $370 for the mid-range smartphone. On the bright side (no pun intended), Nokia 6 will be available at Lazada in white color, which is rather odd considering HMD Global only released the smartphone in black version in China. It's also worth mentioning those who purchase the smartphone through Lazada will benefit from free shipping. We don't know if there's a purchase limit per customer, but it doesn't seems so. Checking out the specs listed by Lazada, it seems they're selling the same device that's been introduced in China not long ago. So, expect a mid-range smartphone running Android 7.0 Nougat operating system right out of the box, coupled with an octa-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. The Nokia 6's 16-megapixel rear-facing camera has already been compared to other cameras on flagships like the OnePlus 3T and Huawei Mate 9 Pro, and it performed admirably. There's also a secondary 8-megapixel camera in the front for those who like to take selfies. It also sports a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display with 2.5D scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating. On the inside, the Nokia 6 packs 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card). Source
vissha posted a topic in Mobile NewsNokia's Return to Smartphone Business Confirmed for 2017 An official slide from the company has spilled the beans Apparently, an official slide from Nokia's Capital Markets Day presentation has just leaked online and the folks over at NPU have been quick to report on it. The slide show Nokia's main topics for the next two years and the current one. While in 2016 Nokia focused on the launch of its incredible OZO VR camera, Withings acquisition and licensing its phone brand to HMD, the next two year will be even more exciting for the Finnish company. For example, in 2017 Nokia plans to strengthen its presence in the VR market, but it remains to be seen how it will be able to do that. Another important topic for Nokia fans, the comeback of the company to the smartphone business is happening next year as well. The Finnish giant notes in the presentation slide that “Nokia brand's return to smartphones” is to take place in 2017. Moreover, the company plans to expand patent licensing in mobile, automotive and consumer electronics during the same year. As for 2018, Nokia is going to work towards licensing its own VR technology, and hopes to grow considerably in remote patient care in Digital Health. The Finnish company also mentions that it will continue the patent licensing growth and diversification throughout 2018 as well. If you're a Nokia fans, 2017 is definitely going to be a very interesting year for you. At least two Android smartphones are expected to be unveiled in the first half of the year, but these won't be the only handsets Nokia will launch in 2017. The only thing that remains to clarify is when exactly the first Nokia-branded smartphones in a long while will be officially unveiled. Some bet on Mobile World Congress, which is scheduled to take place at the end of February, while other are more pessimist claim the first Nokia smartphones won't be announced until April/May. Source
