Nokia C2 Tennen, C2 Tava, C5 Endi budget phones land on Cricket Wireless

Although smartphones have become more in demand these days, not everyone actually needs all the bells and whistles that will cost them an arm and a lag and who knows what else. Some people just need the basics of connecting to the Internet, watching HD videos on YouTube, and taking some passable photos. For these types of smartphone users, HMD Global's newest trio of Nokia-branded smartphones on Cricket Wireless might do the job without burning a hole in their wallets.

Nokia 125 and 150 offer the simple joys of a basic mobile phone

There has been a great emphasis these days on the important role that smartphones, computers, and apps are playing during these uncertain times but, for some people, they can also be a source of stress. The incessant notifications and tempting distractions can be counterproductive or downright nerve-wracking. For those who want to remain connected with friends and loved ones but without any bells or whistles, HMD Global is launching the Nokia 125 and Nokia 150 feature phones for that exact purpose with a dash of entertainment sprinkled on top.

Nokia phones warranty period extended to account for COVID-19 disruption

Nokia phones warranty period extended to account for COVID-19 disruption

The novel coronavirus pandemic has disrupted our normal ways of life, especially businesses and schedules that have more or less been running smoothly just a few months ago. Many companies, particularly banks and network operators, have offered customers some grace period for bills that are due during quarantine periods. So far, those extensions have only applied to things that have to be paid. Now HMD Global is extending that same practice to things that are also expiring in the next few weeks: your phone warranty.

Nokia 5310 brings the Xpress Music back to the market

Nokia 5310 brings the Xpress Music back to the market

Nokia has announced a flood of new smartphones for all walks of life and price tiers. For some people, however, even the Android Go Nokia 1.3 might be overkill for their basic needs. When those basic needs simply involve voice calls, SMS, and music, the Nokia 5310 may be the affordable phone you'll want. And if that name sounds familiar, that's because it's a revival of yet another Nokia classic phone that made the XpressMusic brand a thing.

Nokia 5.3 brings the circle at a much lower cost

Nokia 5.3 brings the circle at a much lower cost

The Nokia 5.3 was revealed today at the same time as the Nokia 8.3 5G. The 8.3 is a larger smartphone for a significantly larger price, while the Nokia 5.3 looks a whole lot like the larger device, but costs less. The big differences are there - the display is smaller, there are fewer pixels in the display, the display has a water drop notch instead of a punch hole notch, but the back looks very similar. Does that mean that the Nokia 5.3 is a shocking sort of deal?

Nokia 8.3 5G officially revealed as “first truly global 5G smartphone”

The Nokia 8.3 5G was revealed in full today by the company with a set of specifications that appear to far outweigh its price. The Nokia 8.3 5G sports a nearly full-frontal coverage display with a bit of a chin and a punch-hole for its front-facing camera, and a circular camera array at the back. This device will be what Nokia describes as the "first truly global 5G smartphone."

Nokia C2 gives Android Go another go

Nokia C2 gives Android Go another go

There was a time, during Google's big push towards the "Next Billion", when it was more aggressively pushing its Android Go "flavor" to both OEM partners and consumers. That push seems to have died down a little, as the market once more turned its attention to the high-end, the novel, and the expensive. Now along comes HMD Global and its mission to corner all the corners of the market on all tiers, announcing the Nokia C2 as the newest and so far the only new Android Go phone in the market.

Nokia Android 10 update schedule sees some delays

Nokia Android 10 update schedule sees some delays

HMD Global has always prided itself on the vanilla Android experience it ships on its Nokia-branded phones. It has committed to sticking close to the Android One "flavor" on most of its models, shipping the trimmed down Android Go on a few of its most basic handsets. That said, its track record in actually pushing out those updates has been inconsistent at best and this news of further delays with the company's Android 10 update won't be doing it any favors in terms of public image.

Nokia 5.3 leaks include “Oreo” camera bump, mid-range specs

Nokia 5.3 leaks include “Oreo” camera bump, mid-range specs

Everyone's going square or very large rectangles these days, at least as far as camera bumps on smartphones are concerned. Before that, however, Motorola introduced the world to a circular camera style, a legacy that HMD Global is apparently trying to continue. That design is coming to the manufacturer's mid-range Nokia and, for better or for worse, the Nokia 5.3 going to look like some other Nokia phones before it.

Nokia 5.2 “Captain America” might not be able to shield HMD Global

Nokia 5.2 “Captain America” might not be able to shield HMD Global

HMD Global blazed into the smartphone scene with a promise to continue Nokia's legacy and do better by Android users than what most manufacturers give them. It did fulfill the former, mostly by flooding the market with affordable yet also underwhelming handsets that, at least for a while, seemed to also meet expectations of vanilla Android experiences that don't get updated all too often. With MWC 2020 approaching, the OEM is expected to unveil even more Nokia phones, including one that has a marvelous nickname it probably doesn't deserve.

Nokia 400 could be the first touch-less Android feature phone

Nokia 400 could be the first touch-less Android feature phone

Android can be found almost anywhere these days, from your regular mobile devices to laptops to even home appliances. The one place it is somewhat ironically absent from is the so-called feature, or dumb, phones. Despite Google's best efforts, the platform may still be too incompatible with what many expect from such an entry-level communication device. HMD Global, however, might be daring to change that perception with what could be the world's first feature phone running Android and without a touch screen.

Nokia foldable phone could be joining the fray later this year

Nokia foldable phone could be joining the fray later this year

What was once thought to be not only impossible but also infeasible is now starting to become the next big smartphone trend. Despite the costs, foldable devices or at least their prototypes are popping up left and right. The Motorola Razr and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip are just the opening salvo and 2020 might end seeing HMD Global launching its own take on the form factor. That despite the company's struggles in maintaining its business and launching its products.
