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.
Selfie addicts rejoice, the Nokia Lumia 730 has arrived. Since July of this year, Microsoft, which now owns Nokia, has hinted at releasing a smartphone designed for taking selfies. With the introduction of the Lumia 730, Microsoft has finally made good on its promise.
Nokia announced last Friday that the Finnish mobile manufacturing company has teamed up with Samsung in order to bring its Here app to Android-run Galaxy smartphones and to Samsung's Tizen-based smartwatches.
For those not in the know, Here is a mapping app that Nokia developed and kept, even when software giant Microsoft purchased the Finland-based phone maker's mobile device segment. The Here app was only available for devices that run on Windows 8 or Windows Phone.
Yet to be publicly announced, the Lumia 830 will be the next upper mid-range device to be released by Nokia, which is now owned by Microsoft. Like any other anticipated new phone model, the Lumia 830 has its own share of rumors and leaks associated with it. For instance, last July, a series of photos were posted on the Chinese website Weibo, purportedly showing the phone's exterior, specifically its aluminum frame and polycarbonate rear side.
After a few years of being almost exclusively in the smartphone telecom industry, it seems that Microsoft is changing course, a bit. Back in April 2014, Microsoft acquired Finnish tech company Nokia with the intent of becoming larger players in the smartphone industry. After the acquisition, Nokia stopped all production of smartphones on every operating system other than Windows Phone.
