Another month, another Nokia device. It was just a month ago when HMD Global launched their mid-range duo — the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus — for the Malaysian market. And now, they’ve released yet another new device, the Nokia X7 specifically for China, and it our experience, it will probably become the Nokia 7.1 Plus when it launches globally.
Android Pie 9.0 is the latest and arguably the best version of the Android at the moment. It comes with a host of enhancements like new gesture-based navigation, better battery management features built in, and even a digital wellbeing monitor that tracks the time you spend looking at your device and recommends time limits so you don’t waste your life just looking blankly into a screen.
So Android Pie is definitely going to be awesome and if you’re a Nokia owner — specifically the Nokia 5.1 Plus, 6.1 and 6.1 Plus users — you’ll be happy to know that you will be getting Android’s latest and greatest software very soon if the tweets from Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer HMD Global (the company that makes Nokia phones), are anything to go by.
One of Nokia‘s big selling points when they relaunched into the world of Android smartphones under HMD Global, was that their phones would be built to last. That — alongside the promise of stock Android and fast updates — was one of the most alluring things about Nokia’s crop of handsets, so alluring that I would even have paid a little extra for them. Just hold a Nokia 7 Plus and you’ll get what I’m talking about.
And that is precisely why I was a little disappointed when I picked up the brand new Nokia 6.1 Plus and 5.1 Plus. They felt very…underwhelming.

Today, HMD Global has officially unveiled 2 mid-range Nokia handsets to the Malaysian market. Both of these devices are part of the Android One program, so if you are a fan of stock Android, you should definitely check them out.

After days of waiting, it turns out that the most awaited phone from Nokia isn’t a flagship device that we hoped for. Instead, HMD Global had announced two new smartphones in India, and they are global versions of their X series from China.
After launching a couple of budget smartphones, Nokia will be unveiling something new on Tuesday, 21 August 2018. According to Nokia, this is the most awaited smartphone yet and this could be their new Nokia 9 flagship smartphone which replaces the Nokia 8.
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.
What a year it has been so far since the last time we published our best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition). We changed governments in a historic election nobody saw coming, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now zero-rated and, of course, a whole bunch of brand new affordable smartphones launched.
We thought about a simple update to our original guide, but because so much has changed, we figured it would be a disservice for you to just add the couple of new phones to the end of that one. Instead, we decided that it would be better if we gave the whole guide a proper face-lift, featuring the new updated GST-less budget smartphones, several brand new handsets and a revised Editor’s Choice section.
Here’s our ultimate budget smartphone guide Part 2.

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.
