Nokia 9 and its 5 lenses could be coming sooner than planned

Nokia 9 and its 5 lenses could be coming sooner than planned

Smartphones seem to be getting crazier and crazier, perhaps as an attempt to keep users excited and interested in them. From bezel-less notched screens to triple cameras to sliding or elevating cameras to foldable screens, you think you’ve seen it all. That is, until you’ve laid eyes on the Nokia 9, or at least what it’s believed to be. The smartphone, which supposedly has not three not even four but five lenses, all on its back, is now tipped to debut sooner than originally intended. All thanks to the media hype around it.

Nokia 9 images are here: 5 lenses, bonkers reality

Nokia 9 images are here: 5 lenses, bonkers reality

The Nokia 9 - or whatever it'll be called - was leaked today in a set of hyper-realistic renderings. A set of leaked CAD drawings of the next Nokia phone were leaked to the creator of the images you're about to behold. Given the track record of this creator, we have no reason to believe these are anything less than a 3rd-party-rendered set of views of the real deal, coming later this year or in early 2019.

Nokia 7.1 now available in the US

Nokia 7.1 now available in the US

Almost just like the old days, HMD Global seems to be keen on flooding the market with a dozen or so Nokia phones. For better or for worse, not all of those make it to the US market. You can count the Nokia 7.1 as one of those few that have reached the shores. And while it might not be the high-end Nokia flagship that some Android fans might still be anticipating, it definitely hits that sweet spot as far as price and features go.

Nokia X7 debuts, Nokia 7.1 Plus probably around the corner

Nokia X7 debuts, Nokia 7.1 Plus probably around the corner

Huawei has just unloaded its not two but three Mate 20 flagship phones but not everyone might be interested in such a high-end device. Not to mention able to afford its equally high-end price tag. For those with simpler needs and simpler budgets, HMD Global has finally announced the Nokia X7 plus, its newest and so far greatest mid-range offering. And while that model might be limited to China, it does hint that an Android One version might not be that far behind.

Nokia 3.1 Plus goes big to correct predecessor’s flaws

Nokia 3.1 Plus goes big to correct predecessor’s flaws

It has barely been half a year since HMD Global launched the Nokia 3.1 along side the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 5.1. Our review of the unit left us a bit conflicted. On the one hand, the device was good enough for a budget smartphone and its Android One software is better than even what some high-end models have. And yet we felt it could also be so much more. That “more” has arrived in the Nokia 3.1 Plus and it addresses the pain points of the non-Plus model.

Nokia Android Pie update: when it’ll happen

Nokia Android Pie update: when it’ll happen

HMD Global has just announced the new Nokia 7.1 and with its increasing number of devices, users might be starting to worry that the manufacturer has already forgotten about them. Not quite because right in the middle of its presentation, HMD laid out its timetable for rolling out Android 9 Pie. The good news: the rollout will start sometime this month. The bad news: that only applies to the more recent and slightly more expensive Nokia phones.

Nokia 7.1 Plus (X7) unofficially debuts in leaked render

Nokia 7.1 Plus (X7) unofficially debuts in leaked render

HMD Global seems to have adopted a two-pronged branding strategy when it comes to its Nokia smartphones. It launches a “X#” series model for China, followed by an “#.1 Plus” variant for the rest of the world. Barely a month after it did the latter with the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus, HMD Global is now rumored to be preparing the Nokia X7 and 7.1 Plus. And judging by this first leak, it will mix new Nokia designs with old Nokia legacy.

Nokia 6.1 Plus notch-hiding option returns, Android One indifferent

Nokia 6.1 Plus notch-hiding option returns, Android One indifferent

The notch is a very divisive element. As such, it didn’t come as a surprise that when the removal of the feature to hide it on the Nokia 6.1 Plus was blamed on an ominous and still unknown Google requirement, the Web went ablaze with speculation. The favorite theory was that Google prohibited Android One OEMs from implementing a feature not found in Android One. That, however, may not be the case and the feature has indeed returned but still leaves one question unanswered: will stock Android on the Pixel 3 XL have it?

Nokia notch-hiding option removed, foreshadows Pixel 3 XL problem

Nokia notch-hiding option removed, foreshadows Pixel 3 XL problem

The notch is probably one of the most divisive design trends in smartphones today. Some hate it with a passion, others don’t mind it at all. Fortunately, most manufacturers that have screen cutouts provide an option to “hide” it. Most, but not all. HMD Global baffled users and fans when it suddenly pulled out the option to hide the notch. It turns out, it was at Google’s behest. And while it’s easy enough to write it off as something specific to Nokia phones, it doesn’t bode well for the Pixel 3 XL.

This Nokia 9 Android has 5+ cameras, looms as iPhone X Plus nears

Not only does the prototype Nokia phone seen here have 5 lenses on its back, it probably has a couple more up front. This is the AOP-SKU3, a - again - prototype device, also running with the code-name TA-1094. This device comes in blue, shiny blue, with a metal rim and at least a power button and a volume button on its side, plus at least one antenna band on top. Also it's very shiny and blue - so shiny.

Top Android One phones this year

Top Android One phones this year

LG just made a rather startling announcement days before IFA. Unlike Samsung, whose first Android Go phone, the Galaxy J2 Core, was repeatedly leaked before it was finally announced, LG’s first Android One phone was almost totally unexpected. With the LG G7 One, another major manufacturer jumps into Google’s revamped program. But what exactly is Android One and what are your best choices in getting one? Puns aside, here are the top picks for the pure Android experience you’ve always wanted but couldn’t get because of the Pixel phones’ price tag.
