Android 12 beta update release date tipped with device list

Android 12 beta update release date tipped with device list

This week the expected release date for Google's Android 12 Developer Beta was reaffirmed with a list of devices. The devices that'll likely gain access to Android 12 will differ from the list of devices that'll have access to the first waves of Developer Beta. The list of devices Google works with to test the Android 12 developer beta will be relatively limited - the full Android 12 release schedule will expand beyond the first limited list.

Nokia 3650 might be HMD Global’s next revival

Nokia 3650 might be HMD Global’s next revival

One of the side effects of Nokia flooding the market with a dizzying array of phones back in the days is that it had the opportunity to play around with different designs. Some of these, like the Nokia 3310, became popular for their reliability while others, like the Nokia 8110 "banana phone", became iconic for their design. And then there are some Nokia phones that some couldn't make heads or tails of and one of those might become one of HMD Global's next attempts to modernize.

Nokia 1.4 delivers big-screen Android for a shocking price

Nokia 1.4 delivers big-screen Android for a shocking price

If your primary complaint about new Android phones is that they're still too expensive, then the Nokia 1.4 would like a word. Latest from HMD Global, the new entry-level smartphone pushes up the screen size in the budget Nokia range, but also keeps the price down low: under 100 euro, in fact.

Nokia 5.4 is coming to the US unlocked

Nokia 5.4 is coming to the US unlocked

It isn't really a surprise that HMD Global has been flooding the smartphone market with a dizzying array of smartphones just like how Nokia did back in the old days. Also unsurprisingly, it hasn't made all of those available in the US, where consumers are considered a bit pickier and often lean towards the high-end tiers. That said, it does open the doors to some of its mid-range Nokia smartphones in the US from time to time, especially in unlocked versions, like the new-ish Nokia 5.4 that will be arriving in two weeks.

Robinhood GameStop stock block prompts AOC and Ted Cruz investigation threat

Robinhood GameStop stock block prompts AOC and Ted Cruz investigation threat

An almost unprecedented set of circumstances have created a situation in which normally diametrically opposed politicians agree on an action. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just called for a hearing on (and likely an investigation into) Robinhood's decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock "while hedge funds are able to trade the stock as they see fit." AOC continued, "As a member of the Financial Services Committee, I'd support a hearing if necessary."

Robinhood, WeBull and others are down, it’s not just you

Robinhood, WeBull and others are down, it’s not just you

Robinhood, WeBull and other brokerages are down for the count, right now, thanks to extreme volatility in a wide variety of stocks across several markets. If we're looking at GameStop and AMC, we see massive market manipulation and calls from regulators to stop trading altogether. If we look at cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin, we see a bit more of the same.

Nokia 5.4 debuts in Europe, US online store launched

Nokia 5.4 debuts in Europe, US online store launched

HMD Global literally has dozens of Nokia phones littering the global market, just like the Finnish giant of old. Almost ironically but unsurprisingly, it hasn't yet flooded the US market with those easy to forget models. It does have a few which you can get only through carriers or third-party retailers but it is now making it possible for US buyers to purchase a Nokia phone directly from HMD Global. Strangely enough, it doesn't yet include the Nokia 5.4 that it just launched in Europe.

Nokia C1 Plus brings 4G and Android Go to the mass market

Nokia C1 Plus brings 4G and Android Go to the mass market

This year's smartphone news has unsurprisingly been filled with 5G tidbits, from the slow but sure rollout of 5G networks to new phones toting 5G support even on mid-range hardware. There are times, people, and markets, however, that just need a serviceable phone, one that can work almost anywhere, especially in places that 5G has yet to set foot in. To that end, HMD Global is launching a new Nokia C1 Plus that seems to take a half step back in time to offer an affordable 4G Android phone.

Nokia 5.4 leak points to yet another forgettable mid-range option

Nokia 5.4 leak points to yet another forgettable mid-range option

HMD Global has so far stuck to the spirit of the old Nokia. It has inundated the smartphone market with numerous models that are easy to forget or get confused about. That strategy, however, worked for Samsung as well as Motorola and HMD Global doesn't seem to have any intention of stepping down like those two. Case in point is an upcoming Nokia 5.4 that sounds almost like this year's Nokia 5.3 with only a few exceptions.

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Smartphones have become an integral part of our life – no doubt they sell like hotcakes and virtually every other week a new phone is released in the market. While smartphones can be crazy pricey on one end of the spectrum, the options for entry-level buyers are also quite broad. The segment is important for all major manufacturers and the prospects of gaining the trust of buyers who want the bare basics from their device are quite high.

Nokia 9.3 PureView might be a no-show this year

Nokia 9.3 PureView might be a no-show this year

HMD Global has flooded the market with affordable Android phones but its track record on higher tiers has been less impressive. To date, only the Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 9 PureView can be considered top-tier, at least based on the premium Snapdragon chips they're carrying. The latter's successor would have not been on par, at least based on the earliest information we had, but it would have given the PureView brand yet another stab at the market. Unfortunately, that won't be happening any time soon, as the Nokia 9.3 PureView has reportedly been delayed to 2021.

Nokia 6300 4G, 8000 4G bring candy bar phones to the Internet age

Nokia 6300 4G, 8000 4G bring candy bar phones to the Internet age

HMD Global didn't just revive Nokia's smartphone business, it revived the Finnish legend's name in the feature phone market as well. The company has brought back from the dead some of Nokia's most iconic designs to the point that it might also end up with the same dozens of not so memorable phones. Its latest batch tries to bring the candy bar phone design back into fashion by adding some 4G chops that at least make the Nokia 6300 4G and Nokia 8000 4G usable as social media handsets.
