Reefa posted a topic in Mobile NewsThe Nokia 8 Sirocco isn’t coming to the United States, but you may well wish it was. This device has an uncommon collection of specifications to it – one we’re not used to rolling with here in the United States. It begins with a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge curved pOLED 2K resolution display “in a compact form that nestles perfectly in any hand.” This device is, as Nokia suggests, “luxuriously weighted to perfectly balance in your hand and comfort.” This I cannot wait to experience. Imagine a smartphone that’s balanced for weight. Like a fine samurai sword, one that you can just TELL is amazing. Just from holding it. The Nokia 8 Sirocco is made with a frame that’s milled from a single piece of stainless steel. This device’s frame is “2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminum,” says Nokia. In the same vein as the luxury described above, this device has a “Full 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 body [that] curves around on all sides of the stainless-steel chassis for beauty and strength.” That glass covers “more than 95% of the device” – which sounds extremely breakable right out the gate. But we shall see. This device also has an ultra-slim 7.5mm profile and has a 2mm edge with “dual-diamond polished stainless-steel chamfers for the perfect grip.” The back-facing camera setup on this device includes 12MP and 13MP cameras at its back. One is a 12MP wide-angle camera with 2L7, 1.4um pixels, 2PD, f/1.75, and a FOV of 78″. The second camera back there is 13-megapixels strong with a few features of its own: Tele, 3M3, 1.0um pixels, f/2.6, FOV 47.3″, and it has a dual-tone flash to boot. Up front is a single 5-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and an “ultra-sensitive” wide-angle lens with 84 degree FOV. This device has 3 microphones with which users can capture audio with high dynamic range. That includes capture from “the quietist whisper to the loudest rock concert in stunning 24-bit audio.” This machine has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile platform (including processor) and 6GB LPPDDR4x RAM. Inside is 128GB USF2.1 storage. Which is good, because there’s no microSD card slot, scandalously! This device also has a 3260mAh battery inside with Qi-standard wireless charging compliance. This device is 140.93 x 72.97 x 7.5mm, and it’ll roll with Android Oreo right out the gate. At this time, the Nokia 8 Sirocco will only be coming to China and ROW in both single-SIM and dual-SIM iterations. So very sadly, it does not yet appear to be coming to the United States. And it’ll be available in any color you like, just so long as it’s black. You’ll be able to get this machine – if you find a way to import it – for around 749 Euro (920 USD) in April of this year. 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 Could Launch a Foldable Smartphone of Its Own The Finnish company could join the innovation race While Samsung is expected to launch its own foldable handsets, Apple is likely to order them from those companies who own the technology required. LG on the other hand will use its foldable panel technology inside products ordered by other companies, like Apple for example. If Nokia wants to remain in tow, it needs to come up with similar devices that will compete with Samsung, Apple and LG products, as well as other companies that might introduce foldable smartphones. In this regard, it appears that the Finnish company has already filed for a patent that describes a foldable device, which could very well be a smartphone. The patent granted by the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) is not the first of its kind. Nokia has been filing similar patents for this type of technology since 2005, so we might not really see a Nokia-branded foldable smartphone anytime soon. The main idea behind the foldable technology is to try to provide customers with larger displays in a pocket-sized form factor. The patent reads: “In this way it is possible to provide a pocket size device with a relatively large display (for example, a 6, 7 or 8 inch display or larger)." Until the time comes for Nokia to compete other handset maker in innovation, the Finnish company is expected to have its second Android smartphone revealed next month at Mobile World Congress. A flagship smartphone, known as Nokia 8, will be introduced in late February, but it will probably not arrive on the market until March or April, just like other flagships from rival companies. Source
