With the launch of the new Nokia 6, HMD Global confirmed that it was joining the Android One programme, guaranteeing pure Android with no bundled apps, services or bloatware – just Google’s Android apps.
In previous years, this conference has become famous for being the place where all of the major smartphone manufacturers launch their new flagship devices, with a slew of announcements and news from the likes of HTC, Motorola, LG and others.
According to a new report from Nokia Power User, the Nokia 8 Pro will be one of the company’s 2018 flagships. The apps it can runs include Facebook, Google Maps, and it even has Google Assistant. The device comes in 2GB or 3GB RAM variants and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, which is expandable, via microSD, up to 128GB. Nokia experimented with its design and the work they did before launching their Android Version devices is more than visible. The purported images of the phone came in the month of November itself and it is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. The rear camera id 2MP and 1,500 mAh battery i.e. 25 days lasting. There’s also a bunch of colored backers available if you want to switch up the design. On looks alone, you’d expect this phone to cost a lot more than Nokia is asking for it. The Nokia 7 Plus is 7.99mm thick and the device holds a 3.5mm headphone jack.
It comes equipped with a dual camera setup.
The update to Oreo has been a long time coming for the Nokia 3, with rumors suggesting that it would land in late 2017. The smartphone will be priced at 399 Euro.
It will come powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor along with 3GB/4GB of RAM along with an internal storage of 32GB/64GB.
The second-generation Nokia 6 retains its 5.5-inch polarised display, but moves the fingerprint reader to the back of the device.
It could also be a strong pick for children or elderly people who are getting to grips with mobile phones for the first time. All three cameras have the Zeiss branding.
The phone has 16-megapixel dual-lens main camera with 1.4 micron pixels, an f/1.7 lens and Zeiss branding. The 3,000mAh battery features USB-C fast charging.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco’s is inspired by the rich design heritage of Nokia phones. Like the Nokia 6, the Nokia 7 Plus is made from a solid block of aluminum, and like the other phones, it’ll be widely available from April this year.
Today during MWC 2018, Nokia unveiled its first attempt at showcasing Android Go on a smartphone.
To deliver the optimum fusion of strength and beauty, the Nokia 8 Sirocco’s premium curved glass covers over 95% of the phone and seamlessly meets a frame precision milled from a single piece of stainless steel.
The reimagined Nokia 8110 4G also includes 4G LTE connectivity – it’s in the name after all. The Dual-Sight feature enables both front and back cameras to give a split screen visual. The Nokia 1 has a 4.5-inch display with a very modest 854 x 480 resolution.
The Sirocco is also water resistant and will ship with Android Oreo 8 out of the box. It will retail for a global price of €749 (approximately Rs 59,600) starting April this year.
Motorola is all set to unveil its G series at the MWC 2018.
“Nokia is becoming the lead partner for Android One”, Pekka Rantala, EVP and CMO of HMD Global said in an interview.
We don’t have official United Kingdom pricing just yet, but Nokia says we can expect a price tag of around €79 – so that’s probably £79, too.
