Budget-friendly Nokia 2 comes to the US

Budget-friendly Nokia 2 comes to the US

This year has seen a number of interesting smartphones from Nokia, with parent company HMD Global releasing devices that cover a number of price-points in the Android market. Unfortunately only a few of these models have made their way to the US, including the mid-range Nokia 6 and the retro-inspired, non-smart Nokia 3310. It appears that's about to change, as the super cheap Nokia 2 will soon be on sale here.

Nokia 2 is an entry-level smartphone with a serious battery

Thus far, the return of Nokia has given us quite a few different handsets. From a re-imagining of perhaps the most famous basic phone ever to the much more high-end Nokia 8, the phones that HMD Global has been pushing out the door have covered a fairly broad range in terms of power. There have even been a few mid-range smartphones for those shopping on a budget, but today we're seeing the introduction of a new entry-level phone in the Nokia 2.

Nokia 8 is going to be a chore to open up for repairs

Nokia 8 is going to be a chore to open up for repairs

Nokia phones are quite known and notorious for their durability, but that was back in the days of plastic and rubber. With glass and metal wrapped around today’s smartphones, it’s good to see that even Nokia’s premium flagship so far, the Nokia 8, is a solid runner. But durability doesn’t exactly equate to repairability and, in fact, is sometimes the opposite. But while the Nokia 8 does score some points in the latter, it’s not going to be an easy journey inside.

Nokia 8 Android Oreo beta open to public, Nokia 3, 5, 6 coming

Nokia 8 Android Oreo beta open to public, Nokia 3, 5, 6 coming

When the Nokia brand rose from the ashes of its unfortunate fate under Microsoft, it, together with HMD Global, promised one thing that many Android OEMs make but few deliver: quick Android updates. And not just the monthly security updates, mind, but also the big ones. So far, there has been only one major Android update since Nokia launched its handsets, Android 8.0 Oreo. And, so far, it hasn’t yet rolled that out. The winds of change are blowing, however as Nokia opens up its new Beta Labs program, bringing with it Android Oreo for the Nokia 8.

Nokia 2 B&H leak points to an entry-level phone

Nokia 2 B&H leak points to an entry-level phone

It’s still amusing that Nokia and HMD Global decided to start with a 3, 5, and 6 (skipping 4 is a bit known by now). It followed those up with an 8 and then backtracked to 7. Now it seems that Nokia will soon be filling in the other gaps, with the Nokia 2 briefly showing up at B&H Photo and being recorded before the retailer took it down. Given the numbering, it’s also not surprising to learn that the Nokia 2 will be the cheapest Nokia smartphone yet and with specs to match that price.

Nokia’s retro-inspired 3310 finally comes to the US

Nokia’s retro-inspired 3310 finally comes to the US

When Nokia parent company HMD Global announced the rebirth of the classic 3310 earlier this year, cellphone enthusiasts were left fawning over its cute design and focus on minimalism. Then came disappointment as it was revealed that the device would only support 2G networks, and wasn't even coming to the US during its spring release. Well, Nokia has finally righted these wrongs, as a new 3G model is coming stateside later this month.

Nokia 7 brings Bothies to the mid-range

Nokia 7 brings Bothies to the mid-range

The selfie craze has mostly boiled over. And by that, we mean that it has become less of a craze and more a begrudgingly accepted fact of life. Nokia, however, totally missed that boat so it’s doing the next best thing: try to create a new fad, Nokia and HMD call it “Bothie” and it debuted in the Nokia 8. But if that premium smartphone was a tad too much for such a simple thing, then worry not. The Nokia 7 phone is finally here and it’s ready to meet your Bothie needs at a much cheaper price.

Nokia 9 renders hint at curved edge screen

Nokia 9 renders hint at curved edge screen

The Nokia 8 isn't even out in some major markets (like the US) yet, and there is now word, and a few pretty 3D renders, of a Nokia 9 going around. It seems that the Nokia 8 isn't yet Nokia and HMD's premium race horse, at least not as far as looks go. Though it might be the Nokia 8's equal in terms of specs, based on these images done by OnLeaks for CompareRaja, the Nokia 9 will jump on the bezel-less and curved edge display train that Samsung is currently driving.

Nokia axes OZO VR camera development

Nokia axes OZO VR camera development

Nokia has called time on its OZO virtual reality camera, announcing that it will cease development of the expensive multi-lens system as it doubles-down on health tech. Announced back in mid-2015, OZO was an unexpected debut from a company better known for its history in cellphones. Shaped like a bloated tadpole, it packed eight cameras and a corresponding eight microphones, for capturing all-round video and audio.

Nokia 8 happily continues the brand’s rugged legacy

Nokia 8 happily continues the brand’s rugged legacy

Nokia was popular and, at the same time, notorious for its smartphones that were veritable bricks you can sometimes throw at would be assailants. That was, however, in the distant past, when phones were less smart and less fragile. With the return of the brand to the smartphone market, sans Microsoft, each model seems to be met with the same question: will it bend? Of course, JerryRigEverything just had to put the new Nokia 8 to the test to see if it is indeed Nokia's most powerful, both in specs and in form.

All Nokia phones to get Android P, only some might be unlocked

All Nokia phones to get Android P, only some might be unlocked

HMD and Nokia are painting themselves as good Android citizens, distancing the brand from the likes of Samsung and other OEMs who are terribly late with updates. This time, however, they might be painting themselves into a corner. HMD has already promised that all its current smartphones will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo before the year ends. Now it is promising to upgrade those same devices to Android P when it comes out next year, without even knowing yet what that may bring.

Nokia 3310 3G gives a modern spin to a famous phone

UMD Global is attempting to bring the Nokia brand back to prominence among consumers, and what better way to do that than by re-releasing what was arguably Nokia's most famous handset? Earlier this year, we saw the Nokia 3310 rise from the ashes, and now, UMD is releasing a new version that makes the phone just a little bit more modern. Say hello to the Nokia 3310 3G.
