Nokia Android feature phone leak sends the Internet into a frenzy

For all its flexibility and ubiquity, one thing the Android platform has never been known for is being lightweight. The Android Go configuration was designed to address that but, even then, its base requirements are already on the smartphone territory.

HMD Global might be coming to their rescue with an old school Nokia feature phone running Android, at least based on this new leak.

Nokia 5.2 could have 48MP camera, look like a Huawei-Moto hybrid

HMD Global has been making Nokia phones that are best known for their quick and regularly updated software as well as their affordable prices. They may not always be known, however, for their design or their cameras, the latter being one of the most popular features in smartphones these days. That may be fixed with an upcoming Nokia phone codenamed "daredevil" which will not only have a 48 megapixel camera but a memorable design that looks like the lovechild of a Huawei Mate 20 and a Moto Z phone.

Nokia 2.2 tries to sell the idea of affordable AI for everyone

A large portion of today's mobile experience is being driven by AI and machine learning, or at least that's what manufacturers and platform-makers advertise. But while those AI-driven features do sound delectable, unless you're using a moderately powerful and moderately expensive phone, you'd be out of luck.

That is if you keep your expectations low.

Remember the Nokia 3? Don't feel bad if you don't. In the fast-paced smartphone market, a two-year-old phone is easily forgotten. Even more so a two-year-old entry-level phone like the Nokia 3.

Nokia 4.2 to give US buyers another Android One option

Much of the attention in smartphone news these days is unsurprisingly poured on high-end and expensive phones like the Galaxy S10, the Huawei P30, and especially the Galaxy Fold. That sadly alienates a large chunk of the market that may have no need for all those bells and whistles. Some just need a solid and reliable mobile companion that won't break their wallet. Fortunately, HMD Global is bringing the Nokia 4.2 to the US exactly for that purpose.

2019 could well be the year we move away from the notch for good - not only are flagships like the Galaxy S10 launching with hole punch cutouts for their front-facing cameras, but now we're starting to see the concept spread to the mid-range as well.

HMD Global clarifies privacy policy after Nokia 7 plus fiasco

After having become the new darling of the Android community, HMD Global's pristine reputation was almost completely tarnished by what may have been just a simple error. Not everyone, however, might have been satisfied by the Nokia phone maker's brief explanation and claims of an innocent mistake.
