Nokia Malaysia is now having a promotion and they are slashing the prices of its entire Android smartphone lineup. This covers their new entry-level Nokia 2 to their flagship Nokia 8 and you can enjoy savings of up to RM311.
If you’re looking for a stock Android smartphone on a budget, the Nokia 2 is now available in Malaysia. This is Nokia’s most affordable smartphone for our market which boasts a 2-day battery life from its 4,100mAh battery.
There are many words that could be used to describe the Nokia 8, but for me, the one word that sticks out is: Disappointing. Even though I repeatedly told myself that it would never live up to the hype, it was still disheartening to see how far it missed the mark. And that made me a little angry at Nokia for what felt like a half-hearted attempt.
Still, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they’re new to this. Maybe they just didn’t have the technical capabilities to produce the kind of flagship-grade hardware that would match their flagship’s excellent software. Then I saw the Nokia 8 Sirocco and I got even more angry because it was living proof (figuratively) that Nokia could make something exquisite — that they could make something special — but for some reason, didn’t.
Nostalgia is a funny thing, it plays tricks on you. Nostalgia fills the gaps in your memories to make it seem that what you remember from the past are as good as you think they were, you reminisce. The problem with nostalgia is that sometimes what you remember and what actually happened are two different things.
When Nokia announced the 8110 4G in Barcelona ahead of the Mobile World Congress, the stage was filled with talk about nostalgia for the phone and the Matrix – the cult-classic that made the original 8110 famous.
I have to admit, I was a pleasantly surprised by the Nokia 7 Plus. I wasn’t particularly impressed with it when I saw it leak, but seeing it in person, the handset definitely gives you a good vibe. Like a Google Pixel 2 XL kind of vibe.
Nokia‘s return to the smartphone scene wasn’t the second coming many probably anticipated. Instead, it felt a less like the return of a king than a new company trying to find their footing. But, unlike new companies, Nokia does have the benefit of pulling our nostalgic heartstrings.
Remember the revitalised Nokia 3310? Yeah, I wasn’t the biggest fan of that handset. This year, though, Nokia launched yet another set of handsets, in which I found the real throwback device. And no, I’m not talking about the Matrix phone. I’m talking about the Nokia 1.

A year ago, HMD Global had introduced the Nokia 3310 for 2017. This year, the Finnish company is bringing back another icon and it’s the Nokia 8110 with 4G.
HMD Global will be announcing a couple of Nokia smartphones just before Samsung’s Unpacked event. With less than two weeks to go, serial leakster @evleaks has revealed two new Nokia models and one of it appears to be their first Android One smartphone with dual-cameras.
Nokia’s current Android flagship, the Nokia 8 is getting a price cut ahead of the Chinese New Year celebration. If you’ve been waiting for the right time, this is probably it.
