Nokia 5.1 Plus Android 9 Pie update also brings Pro Camera mode

Nokia 5.1 Plus Android 9 Pie update also brings Pro Camera mode

HMD Global has become quite the poster boy for being a good Android OEM, preferring to use vanilla Android, Android One if possible even, and pushing out updates as fast as it can. While it’s Android Pie update hasn’t exactly been speedy, it has still arrived earlier than those from companies bigger than it. And although it’s too late for Christmas, HMD Global is giving Nokia 5.1 Plus owners a slightly late gift of Pie and more.

Nokia 9 delayed by its own ambitions

Nokia 9 delayed by its own ambitions

There’s little doubt that HMD Global has successfully revived the Nokia brand singlehandedly. But despite being popular and doing well in the mid-range market, HMD Global has yet to launch what almost all could agree on to be its high-end flagship. That would have been the Nokia 9 if rumors and leaks are to be believed. Unfortunately, if those rumors are also correct, then that’s also the reason why we won’t be seeing it until early next year.

Smartphones in 2019 – Things to consider before buying one

The trends are in, and we've got a pretty decent idea of the next big smartphones from device makers in 2019. The features you're going to want to watch out for are only slightly different from what came in 2018 - and we're pretty much set on what the phones will look like already. What's it going to take for you to get a deal on a smartphone in 2019?

Nokia 8.1 is a global Android One phone with Pie

Nokia 8.1 is a global Android One phone with Pie

A budget phone with the newest version of Android onboard right out the box - that shouldn't be a surprise, but it is. Today the Nokia 8.1 was revealed as a global phone, complete with an Android One version of Android Pie. This device has a 6.18-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and an "edge-to-edge" design.

Nokia 8.1 “Phoenix” is the global Nokia 8.1 coming next week

Nokia 8.1 “Phoenix” is the global Nokia 8.1 coming next week

It seems that HMD Global is truly being faithful to Nokia’s spirit in legacy, especially in naming its phones. While it still doesn’t have as many, it is already well on its way to achieving a confusing and almost inconsistent naming scheme. Last month, it launched the Nokia X7 in China and was expected to launch it as the Nokia 7.1 Plus globally. The joke’s on us, then, because it seems it will be called the Nokia 8.1 instead.

Nokia 9 and its 5 lenses could be coming sooner than planned

Nokia 9 and its 5 lenses could be coming sooner than planned

Smartphones seem to be getting crazier and crazier, perhaps as an attempt to keep users excited and interested in them. From bezel-less notched screens to triple cameras to sliding or elevating cameras to foldable screens, you think you’ve seen it all. That is, until you’ve laid eyes on the Nokia 9, or at least what it’s believed to be. The smartphone, which supposedly has not three not even four but five lenses, all on its back, is now tipped to debut sooner than originally intended. All thanks to the media hype around it.

Nokia 9 images are here: 5 lenses, bonkers reality

Nokia 9 images are here: 5 lenses, bonkers reality

The Nokia 9 - or whatever it'll be called - was leaked today in a set of hyper-realistic renderings. A set of leaked CAD drawings of the next Nokia phone were leaked to the creator of the images you're about to behold. Given the track record of this creator, we have no reason to believe these are anything less than a 3rd-party-rendered set of views of the real deal, coming later this year or in early 2019.

Nokia 7.1 now available in the US

Nokia 7.1 now available in the US

Almost just like the old days, HMD Global seems to be keen on flooding the market with a dozen or so Nokia phones. For better or for worse, not all of those make it to the US market. You can count the Nokia 7.1 as one of those few that have reached the shores. And while it might not be the high-end Nokia flagship that some Android fans might still be anticipating, it definitely hits that sweet spot as far as price and features go.

Nokia X7 debuts, Nokia 7.1 Plus probably around the corner

Nokia X7 debuts, Nokia 7.1 Plus probably around the corner

Huawei has just unloaded its not two but three Mate 20 flagship phones but not everyone might be interested in such a high-end device. Not to mention able to afford its equally high-end price tag. For those with simpler needs and simpler budgets, HMD Global has finally announced the Nokia X7 plus, its newest and so far greatest mid-range offering. And while that model might be limited to China, it does hint that an Android One version might not be that far behind.

Nokia 3.1 Plus goes big to correct predecessor’s flaws

Nokia 3.1 Plus goes big to correct predecessor’s flaws

It has barely been half a year since HMD Global launched the Nokia 3.1 along side the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 5.1. Our review of the unit left us a bit conflicted. On the one hand, the device was good enough for a budget smartphone and its Android One software is better than even what some high-end models have. And yet we felt it could also be so much more. That “more” has arrived in the Nokia 3.1 Plus and it addresses the pain points of the non-Plus model.

Nokia Android Pie update: when it’ll happen

Nokia Android Pie update: when it’ll happen

HMD Global has just announced the new Nokia 7.1 and with its increasing number of devices, users might be starting to worry that the manufacturer has already forgotten about them. Not quite because right in the middle of its presentation, HMD laid out its timetable for rolling out Android 9 Pie. The good news: the rollout will start sometime this month. The bad news: that only applies to the more recent and slightly more expensive Nokia phones.
