Nokia 6 lives up to its rugged pedigree in torture test

Nokia 6 lives up to its rugged pedigree in torture test

The Nokia 3310, which was recently resurrected in a rather odd way, was well-loved for many things, one of which was its resilience. Granted, not-smart phones back then, like the Nokia 5110, were less sophisticated but also less fragile. The Nokia 6 naturally raised the question of whether Nokia and HMD, freed from any Microsoft influence, could pull off something similar in this day and age. Fortunately for us, JerryRigEverything did all the testing so that we won’t have to find out ourselves the hard way.

Nokia 7, 8 tipped next in line, coming with Snapdragon 660

Nokia 7, 8 tipped next in line, coming with Snapdragon 660

Is Nokia back to its prolific and notorious pace of putting out one phone after another? If based on these rumors, that does seem to be the case. Together with HMD, it has already launched the Nokia 3, 5, and 6. What’s next you ask? Why a Nokia 7 and Nokia 8, of course. Unlike the already released smartphones, these two are tipped to stand on the higher edge of the mid-range line, sporting Qualcomm’s still unannounced Snapdragon 660 chip.

Nokia Android flagship with Snapdragon 835 but no Zeiss tipped

Nokia Android flagship with Snapdragon 835 but no Zeiss tipped

Nokia may have eclipsed the smartphones of MWC 2017 with its nostalgia-stoking 3310, but the resurrected brand is reportedly planning something altogether more high-tech very soon. While the Nokia 3310 does little more than let you make calls, send texts, and play Snake - and, even then, not if you're in the US - brand-licensee HMD did have two new Android smartphones for the Barcelona show. The Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 slotted in beneath the existing Nokia 6, but it's in true flagship position that HMD is believed to be targeting its next handset.

Nokia 3310’s new release spawns metal rival at $3,000

Nokia 3310’s new release spawns metal rival at $3,000

It might make more sense to suggest that the phone you're about to see is the Nokia 3310's most laughable rival instead of "biggest," but it is what it is. This device is the Gresso 3310, a device from a company that does not skirt around the fact that they've been DIRECTLY inspired by the original Nokia 3310 in more ways than one. Also this one costs THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

Nokia OZO Audio is a spatial audio tech for phones, cameras

Nokia OZO Audio is a spatial audio tech for phones, cameras

Nokia has dipped its hands into a lot of cookie jars lately, including the hottest computing and gaming trend, virtual reality. But most, if not fall, VR systems today only deal with the visual part of that made-up reality. A fully immersive virtual experience would need to also have 3D audio to go along with the 3D visuals. And for that, you need to record, and play back, audio in 3D, which is why Nokia is announcing OZO Audio to complement its existing OZO camera and platform.

Nokia 3310 hands-on: Retro done right

Nokia 3310 hands-on: Retro done right

One of the cheapest, most basic phones at Mobile World Congress this year has probably got more attention than all the smartphone flagships combined. The Nokia 3310 isn't trying to squeeze the LG G6 from your hand, and its physical keys aren't going to give the BlackBerry KeyOne any sleepless nights, but it possesses a retro charm that has the Nokia booth here in Barcelona buzzing. Turns out, there's a good reason for that.

Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 join Nokia 6 in global Android launch

Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 join Nokia 6 in global Android launch

Nokia isn't counting on nostalgia for the 3310 alone to reboot its brand, with the Nokia 6 now sitting atop a trio of Android smartphones. Announced alongside the new Nokia 3310, the new Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are aluminum-bodied plays for the Android market just like the existing Nokia 6, but with even more affordable prices. Meanwhile, Nokia - and brand-licensing, phone-manufacturing partner HMD - are promising rapid-fire Android OS upgrades to sweeten the deal.

The Nokia 3310 is back! [Update: Bad news!]

The Nokia 3310 is back! [Update: Bad news!]

For many, a Nokia was their first ever cellphone, and more specifically the Nokia 3310. Now star of many a meme, not to mention looked back upon with rose-tinted reminiscence glasses, the chunky little cellphone with its monochrome display and tough design hardly holds up to today's smartphones. So, Nokia - and brand licensee HMD - is bringing the Nokia 3310 back from the dead.

Nokia rebranding every single Withings device

This re-branding will take place in the summer of 2017 alongside a major update to the Health Mate App and launch of HIPAA-compliant Patient Care Platform.

Nokia 5 and 3 entry-level Android phones get leaked

Nokia 5 and 3 entry-level Android phones get leaked

It seems that Nokia is back to its confusing model numbers game. And, no, we're not talking about the rumored return of the legendary Nokia 3310, which still defies all reason. We're referring to the rumored Nokia 5 and Nokia 3, following the reportedly successful Nokia 6. Both smartphones, however, have rather low specs with very little differentiation between them. Which does seem on par with Nokia's infamous naming strategy, or the lack thereof.
