Nokia‘s big push towards regaining market share has to be done in the affordable segment of the market. They’ve proven that their high-end phones still need a lot of polishing before they can realistically compete with the rest of Android’s elite.
The Nokia 2 just got its specifications leaked via an AnTuTu benchmark listing and the entry-level smartphone also might be the cheapest device to be output by the Finnish company.
Nokia‘s on a roll as HMD Global has released yet another Nokia smartphone called the Nokia 7. With a name like that I don’t think you need me to tell you where this product sits on Nokia’s line of smartphones. The question is: How much lower is it down the ladder from the Nokia 8?
The Nokia 8 is an interesting flagship offering top-end specs at a competitive price. If that’s not good enough, the Finnish company is expected to release a newer model that’s called the Nokia 9.
Ahead of its big reveal, we now have a clearer view thanks to these new renders. It looks very different from what we’ve seen from the new Nokia brand.
This is not a jaw-dropping phone that will shock the world.
If you were one of the people who thought that when Nokia launches its first flagship Android smartphone, they would remind the world why they were the best all those years ago. That they would spank the likes of Samsung and Apple, then I’d hate to be the one to break it to you but the Nokia 8 is not that phone.
Instead, the Nokia 8 is quite the opposite of a flashy flagship.
Android Oreo has barely begun rolling out to Android devices and HMD Global (the company that owns Nokia) has revealed that they will update the current roster of Nokia smartphones to the next major version of Android.
Well, every phone except the Nokia 3310, obviously.
As more networks are shutting down their 2G networks, the throwback Nokia 3310 phone is becoming less useful in more places. Even if you do get 2G connectivity, browsing on GPRS (without EDGE) is painfully slow in this day and age.
To ensure that the Nokia 3310 stays relevant for those who want it, HMD Global has just announced a 3G version and it even comes with several new colours.
What’s better than a well-built flagship smartphone running a near-stock Android OS at a great price point? Well, how about if we add more power and storage?
Was the Nokia 8 that launched in Malaysia too wimpy for you? Good news, you might have the opportunity to pick up a more powerful version soon!
The Nokia 8 has finally arrived in Malaysia and it is the first flagship Android smartphone under HMD Global. Not only it packs great specs, it also gets dual cameras with ZEISS Optics, a stock Android experience, and an impressive price tag of RM2,299. It undercuts a lot of flagship phones that are priced higher in Malaysia.
Is this the new Nokia smartphone you’ve been waiting for? Find out more in our first impressions.
If the first wave of Android-powered Nokia smartphones didn’t excite you that much, you might want to pay attention to their new Nokia 8. This is their latest flagship smartphone and it’s even more affordable than the OnePlus 5.
