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?
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.
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.
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.
