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 8 at FCC is better than expected

Nokia 8 at FCC is better than expected

The Nokia 8 is technically Nokia’s first true flagship model, bearing specs high enough to compete with some of this year’s top contenders. But when Nokia said last month that it won’t be bringing the Nokia 8 that it just launched to US and Chinese markets, there was a bit of head scratching involved. What it really meant to say was that it wasn’t bringing that Nokia 8 model to the US. Which is all good, because the Nokia 8 that just hit the FCC is suggesting that the US, and China, will be getting a better deal.

Nokia 8 might not launch in US or China

Nokia 8 might not launch in US or China

Not all smartphones are created equal or even priced equal. Not all smartphones even launch in all major markets. While some OEMs withhold some models in some markets for good reasons, some decisions may make you scratch your head a bit. None of those, however, may have anything on this latest tidbit about the Nokia 8. What is, so far, HMD’s and Nokia’s first actual flagship-level smartphone might not actually launch in the US, one of the world’s most important smartphone markets. Making it even weirder, however, is the possibility it might not even launch in China either.

Nokia 8 Bothies aren’t the camera gimmick we wanted

Nokia 8 Bothies aren’t the camera gimmick we wanted

Selfies are mundane and so Nokia is hoping to shake things up with a camera feature it has dubbed 'bothies.' If you pronounced that in your head as 'bah-these,' you're not the only one, but that's not what Nokia is going for. Pronounced 'both-eez,' the name refers to recording/shooting with both of a phone's cameras at the same time, combining the content into a single photo or videos.
