Early this month, HMD Global had introduced the new Nokia 8110 4G in Malaysia. This is a tribute to the iconic Matrix phone which is also known as the banana phone. The Finnish smartphone brand is aware that there are cheap knockoffs of the Nokia 8110 being sold online and they want consumers to be cautious when it comes to dubious offers.
After releasing the Nokia 6.1 in Malaysia last week, the Finnish brand has just introduced its Nokia 3.1 in our local market. This is Nokia’s most affordable 18:9 display smartphone and it claims to have 50% better performance than last year’s Nokia 3.
Nokia’s new throwback device, the 8110 4G has finally arrived in Malaysia. Like the reborn Nokia 3310, it’s also a feature phone but this supports faster 4G. On top of that, you can even use it as a hotspot.
Nokia has officially launched the brand new Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 1 smartphones in Malaysia. While the former is a premium mid-ranger, the latter is Malaysia’s first Android Oreo (Go edition) entry-level smartphone.
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.
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 has officially revealed its new 2nd generation Nokia 6 for 2018. This is their new mid-range smartphone that replaces its current model that runs on a Snapdragon 430 processor. The new Nokia 6 gets a more capable processor with added features and it’s slightly cheaper than before.
When Nokia made a comeback early last year, the Nokia 6 was their top of the line device (before the Nokia 8) and it came with stock Android. Priced at RM999, it is a solidly built phone, but unfortunately, it packs an entry-level Snapdragon 430 processor at a mid-range smartphone price range.
That’s going to change for 2018 as Nokia appears to be launching a new one and it’s looking like a proper mid-range device.
The revived Nokia 3310 under HMD Global had created a lot of buzz earlier this year. Unfortunately, being a 2G only device, its usage was severely limited to countries that still have 2G networks operating.
To expand its reach, HMD Global had released a newer Nokia 3310 3G which came with 4X the storage along with some minor design tweaks. For those who love the appeal of old-school feature phone but wished if it had faster connectivity, Nokia appears to be working on a 4G version of the Nokia 3310. A feature phone with 4G? Why would anyone bother?
