Nokia 8 Pro with rotating penta-lens Carl Zeiss camera coming

Nokia 8 Pro with rotating penta-lens Carl Zeiss camera coming

Hungry for more and actually high-end Nokia phones? MWC 2018 next week just might satisfy your craving but in a somewhat odd way. No, it won’t be the Nokia 9, much less the Nokia 10. And it won’t be a Nokia 8 (2018) either. Instead, it will supposedly be a Nokia 8 Pro with the latest mobile processor, an 18:9 screen, and one special trick that may tickle the fancy of serious mobile photographers: five lenses that can rotate to change the camera’s focal length.

Nokia Digital Health business not going so hot right now

Nokia Digital Health business not going so hot right now

After a couple years in the health device business, Nokia's now not quite as sure they're ready to stay. Back in April of 2016, the Nokia brand acquired the Withings brand, and all their devices along with it. At that time, acquiring Withings meant every single Withings brand device in production would switch to Nokia branding, and every device line in Withings lineup would go Nokia from that point on. That purchase might not have been Nokia's best.

Apple has surprising company in 2018 smartphone growth

Nokia 7 Plus details leaked in photos

HMD Global’s and Nokia’s Android smartphone strategy is, to be frank, all over the place. There doesn’t seem to be a discernible rhyme and reason to its models just yet. It just launched the Nokia 6 2018 edition but there isn’t going to be a 2018 edition for the Nokia 7, at least not yet. Instead, there will be a Nokia 7 Plus, and it’s looking to be quite a curious mid-range phone, at least based on these leaked marketing materials.

Nokia 5, Nokia 6 Android Oreo update now available

Nokia 5, Nokia 6 Android Oreo update now available

Smaller and newer smartphone makers are able to boast about how agile and faster they are when it comes to pushing out updates precisely because they are that: smaller and newer. How long that favorable situation will last is anyone’s guess. For now, however, HMD Global, Nokia, and owners of some of their phones can revel in how true that is. HMD Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas, possibly the public face of the new Nokia phones, has just announced that both the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6 have finally joined the Android Oreo family.

Nokia 7 Plus seen with upgraded processor

Nokia 7 Plus seen with upgraded processor

2018 has already begun but it seems that HMD Global isn't yet read to show all its Nokia cards yet. Well, aside from the Nokia 6 (2018), which is practically an upgraded Nokia 6, if that weren't obvious from the name. But unlike that, the Nokia 7's "upgrade" won't be like that. Which is probably why HMD isn't appending a "2018" to it. Instead, the Nokia 7 Plus sighted on Geekbench seems to simply have a slightly higher processor than the original.

Nokia Body Cardio’s Pulse Wave Velocity feature removed

This week the folks at Nokia decided to remove one of the most unique features from its latest high-tech bathroom scale. The feature went by the name Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV), and it was pretty cool while it lasted. Unfortunately, Nokia discovered that PWV "may require a different level of regulatory approval." Until Nokia gets said approval, they're removing the feature from all scales, even those already in consumer hands.

Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Once upon a time, Nokia had a reputation for good phone cameras, especially with its partnership with lens maker Zeiss. Of course, back then, it didn’t have much competition anyway. As it got left behind in the smartphone race, it also lost its prominence in mobile photography. And just as the Nokia 8 is its current champion in the smartphone market, so it also represents its best foot in taking pictures and recording videos. And, unfortunately, HMD Global still has a lot of work to do.

Nokia 6 (2018) fixes users’ biggest complaints

The new year has just rolled out and HMD Global is starting it not with a bang but with a tiny pop. The high-end Nokia 9 is still nowhere in sight, but that doesn’t mean its first 2018 smartphone is something to pan. The Nokia 6 (2018), a.k.a. Nokia 6 2nd gen, has just been revealed, somewhat. Its actual launch is still a few days away, but the company is revealing enough to make buyers of the first gen Nokia 6 seethe in jealousy.
