Apple has surprising company in 2018 smartphone growth

Apple has surprising company in 2018 smartphone growth

Samsung will keep its pole position in the global smartphone market in 2018, but faces a shrink in sales while Apple picks up pace, according to new phone stats. The South Korean company is expected to produce around 300 million handsets in 2018, a number that may sound huge but is actually down 5-percent compared to 2017. Meanwhile, there's an unexpected resurgence predicted for an old player in the industry.

Nokia 7 Plus details leaked in photos

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

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 flagship 2018 smartphone tipped to feature 5 camera setup

Nokia flagship 2018 smartphone tipped to feature 5 camera setup

The new HMD Global-owned Nokia has been hard at work over the last year to become a producer of affordable quality Android handsets. The latest Nokia 6 has already been announced, and the upcoming Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 are expected to be high-end devices. However, there's a new rumor developing that the Finnish company has a new flagship in the works for reveal sometime later this year, one that will feature a whopping five lens camera setup.

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

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.

Nokia 3310 4G to run Android-based YunOS

Nokia 3310 4G to run Android-based YunOS

It seems that HMD Global has found a new cash cow, though more emphasis on the cow than on the cash. The Nokia 3310, even en masse, won’t be able to match the profits from higher end mobile devices, but that’s not stopping HMD Global from milking the popular feature phone for all its worth. HMD followed up the regular 2G model with a more Internet-friendly 3G variant. Now it seems that a Nokia 3310 4G is ready to launch, but it will have more than just a new network connection to boast about.

Nokia 1 might be an Android Go phone

Nokia 1 might be an Android Go phone

Ever wondered what happened to the Nokia 1? There's a Nokia 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and, soon, 9, but no 1 (yes, they intentionally skipped 4). It turns out, there will still be a Nokia 1 but, apparently, HMD Global was reserving it for a very special purpose. Word from old-time Nokia leakster Eldar Murtazin claims that the Nokia 1 will be a super low-end, budget smartphone that will be part of the new Android Go program. And no, not the Android One program, which would have probably been a better marketing strategy.

Nokia 2 is cheap but not cheaply built

Nokia 2 is cheap but not cheaply built

Cheap, affordable phones have earned quite a bad rep, sometimes unwarranted. You often make a lot more compromises than you’d like to keep things within budget, and one of the biggest to suffer is the build quality and durability. There are, of course, exceptions, and it seems that HMD Global has provided one such shining example. The Nokia 2, the lowest end Nokia phone this year, has just earned its rightful place among JerryRigEverything’s sturdiest picks for the year. And you won’t even have to pay more than $100 for it.

Nokia 9 front 5 MP camera might not be too bad after all

Nokia 9 front 5 MP camera might not be too bad after all

The Nokia 9 started out “OK”, at least while it was still expected to arrive in late 2017. When the days turned into weeks and weeks into months, Nokia’s and HMD’s next “flagship” started looking less and less appealing. When the specs dropped from FCC, there was much disappointment, especially with the measly 5 megapixel front shooter. It turns out, however, that there might be more to that story than meets the eye and the Nokia 9’s selfie shooter might not turn out to be that bad after all.
