Back in December, HMD Global introduced the Nokia 5.4 as a budget smartphone for the European market. And it looks like this device will be headed for the US real soon.
According to HMD Global’s recent announcement, the Nokia 5.4 will be coming to the US. Right now, you can pre-order this device at Amazon for $249. It will start shipping on February 15.
The device will also be making its way to Nokia’s online store starting March. The available colors will include Polar Night and Dusk. Other specs available on this device include a 6.4-inch HD+ display with a punch-hole cutout.
The Nokia 8.3 smartphone is one of the devices HMD Global has released with support for 5G network. But unlike the other Nokia devices being released these days, the Nokia 8.3 doesn’t come off as an affordable device. As a matter of fact, it might even be better to purchase a flagship model from another manufacturer.
Fortunately, the smartphone is currently on sale. B&H Photo Video is currently running a discount on the price of the Nokia 8.3. With the promotion in place, you can get this smartphone for $380. That’s a discount of $320 from its original $700 price tag.
HMD Global is apparently making an inexpensive smartphone that will be the first of its kind.
The Finnish company has been focusing on manufacturing low- and mid-tier Nokia smartphones instead of competing against the high-end smartphone market. This is actually a pretty good decision for the company, especially since the flagship market is already saturated.
But despite its low- and mid-tier phones, HMD Global is producing devices that are of value. One of its upcoming entry-level devices promises to embody that promise.
According to reports, HMD Global is working on a new handset called the Nokia 1.4. Even though this is an inexpensive device, it will be equipped with a fingerprint sensor. This is a feature that is typically reserved on high-end models.
In the past two months, Nokia struck a deal with wireless providers. Recently, it added U.S. Cellular to its portfolio. But today’s announcement reveals that Dish chose the Finnish company to build its 5G network.
As revealed by Nokia, they will not be working on the network infrastructure. Instead, they will be providing their cloud-native, 5G standalone Core software to the wireless carrier. In turn, this software will be used to build the 5G network of Dish with efficiency and performance.
It looks like U.S. Cellular will soon be getting an improvement on its 5G network.
Since Huawei is no longer an option, US carriers have very minimal choices for their needs on 5G equipment deployment or when they need to upgrade new ones. Thankfully, Nokia has partnered with the wireless carrier on this venture.
To be fair, Nokia (along with Ericsson) has long been an available option in the country. The difference they have over Huawei, however, si that they offer more expensive services. But in order to extend its 5G mmWave network, U.S. Cellular has partnered with Nokia to procure its 24 GHz and 28 GHz spectrum bands.
HMD Global is making a bold move with its Nokia devices. Earlier today, the Finnish company revealed that it will be updating a number of its devices to Android 10.
It can be recalled that the company launched a number of devices in the last two years. The smartphone manufacturer, however, promised to update these devices before 2020 ends.
But because of the coronavirus outbreak, the manufacturer had to make some changes to its plans. So far, the devices that have been updated to the latest OS include the Nokia 7.1, Nokia 8.1, and Nokia 9 PureView. If you are using a Nokia phone other than these three, you may have to wait some more to get the update.
Earlier today, two new devices became available in the stores of two wireless carriers. Starting today, Cricket Wireless customers can pick up the new budget-friendly Nokia 3.1 Plus device. Meanwhile, the Nokia 2 V will be available on Verizon starting January 31st.
2019 is the year smartphone manufacturers will unveil devices with not two or three cameras, but more. LG and Samsung aren’t the only manufacturers that’s coming out with devices having over three cameras. Nokia has jumped on this growing trend with a five-camera smartphone.
Earlier this month, HMD Global revealed that the Nokia 7.1 is already available to buy from select online retailers. Ever since the big announcement, there have been a lot of pre-orders for the smartphone.
Today, however, the Nokia 7.1 is already available from the top retailers like Amazon, B&H Photo Video, and Best Buy.
HMD Global has made a premium mid-range phone with the Nokia 7.1. This particular model carries a notch on its 5.84-inch PureDisplay with full HD+ resolution. Surrounding the display is a 6000 series aluminum frame.
As revealed in Skype's blog, Skype 2.22 is now available for the mobile operating systems Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8. This means that for the first time, location sharing can now be used in Skype.
