HMD Global recently launched the Nokia 2 in India at a price of Rs. 6999 in India. At the same time, Xiaomi launched the Redmi 5A with better specifications and similar price. HMD Global subsequently announced that the Nokia 2 will support Android Go Edition based on Android 8.1 Oreo and now it appears that the company might be launching its first-ever Android phone that will run Android Go version of Android OS.
Leaked images of what might be the Nokia 1 have surfaced on Baidu, a Chinese website. Interestingly, two different designs are revealed of the same phone which means that [...]
HMD Global’s pricing strategy for its mid-range and budget smartphones in India has baffled everyone. The Nokia 6 was launched in India in early-2017 and was heavily panned for its excessive pricing. However, it appears that HMD Global has learned its lesson and will be willing to rectify such costly errors with its new budget smartphone, the Nokia 6 (2018).
In China, the device starts at a price of CNY 1499 (Rs. 14600 approx.) and if HMD Global goes the Nokia 8 route and launches the device at Rs. 14000 or less, the Nokia 6 (2018) could be a great contender in the budget category of Android phones. In [...]
Nokia 6 was launched back in January of 2017 and was Nokia’s foray into the Android market. At the time of its launch, many felt that the Nokia 6 did not offer much when compared to its peers and especially its own price. HMD Global will hope to rectify its errors with the new Nokia 6 (2018) which was launched today at an event in China. The 32GB variant of the Nokia 6 (2018) is priced at CNY 1499 Rs. 14600 approx.), while the 64GB variant comes with a price tag of CNY 1699 (Rs. 16600 approx).
The Nokia 6 (2018) maintains the 16:9 aspect ratio but, get rids of the front-facing fingerprint scanner and the touch capacitive keys. This move is a bit surprising since other [...]
The Nokia 6 was launched back in January as HMD Global owned Nokia began to enter the Android market slowly. In India, the device was surprisingly priced close to Rs. 15000 even though it was powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset, usually found in devices priced close Rs. 10,000. Apart from the Nokia 8, no other Nokia device was priced competitively including the recently launched Nokia 2. HMD Global would want to change in the coming months and a revamped Nokia 6 could be the first device to do so.
For weeks, there have been speculations that the Nokia 6 (2018) could be launched on the 5th of January in two variant, one with a 16:9 aspect ratio while the other one with an [...]
Huawei’s sub-brand Honor globally launched the Honor View10 at an event in London on the 5th of December. At the time of the launch, the View10 was priced at 499 Euros which roughly translates to about Rs. 38000 in India but, considering the competitive pricing of the Honor 7X, it won’t be surprising if the Honor View10 is priced close to the 30K mark.
Irrespective of its Indian pricing, the View10 will enter the sub-40K category of flagship devices where the likes of the OnePlus 5T and Nokia 8 already exist. Just like the other two devices, the Honor View10 has a flagship chipset, a dual-camera setup and a great display to go with it. So, how does it stack up [...]
Ever since its return to the fore, HMD Global-owned Nokia has had a flourishing restart in the smartphone industry with a slew of launches in 2017. The most noticeable one in India was the launch of the Nokia 8 back in August with its dual-camera setup and vibrant colour variants. However, the design of the Nokia 8 did not represent the trend of 2017, thin bezels and a tall display. It appears that Nokia will rectify that with its early-2018 launch of the Nokia 9.
The image was leaked on the Chinese social networking website, Weibo and represents the design shift that Nokia will make in order to have a more modern-looking smartphone. While there are phones with a [...]
Nokia 9 is highly anticipated as the successor the Nokia 8, and it appears that the Nokia 9 could be launched as early as the 19th of January. A new report from China claims that the Nokia 9 and a new iteration of the Nokia 8, named Nokia 8 (2018) will be launched on the 19th of January. It is worth noting that HMD Global has not announced or hinted at any new launch as of now.
The report also claims that both the phones will be customised for the Chinese market hence, may come with special ROM where Google services may be replaced by local alternatives.
The leaked specifications of the Nokia 9 include 5.5-inch QHD display. Whether this display will have an 18:9 aspect [...]
Android phones, apart from Google’s own Pixel and Nexus lineup have a notorious image for not receiving timely software updates. Mid-range phones go two years without seeing the light of day to any kind of software upgrade. The Nokia 3 was the first Nokia-branded Android pohone to go on sale in India and it appears that the phone is in line to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update soon.
HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvokas confirmed this on Twitter.
Thanks! We will transition straight to Oreo

Smartphones nowadays, are no longer a luxury. Smartphones have become an affordable necessity that keeps on moving in two directions. On one hand, we saw the thousand dollar or the “1 lakh” barrier being crossed by the iPhone X this year, and on the other hand we have much more affordable Android phones which do not skim down on quality.
Xiaomi and HMD Global recently launched two Android phones at the same price tag of Rs 6999. While Xiaomi has slowly reached the pinnacle of the Indian smartphone market, HMD Global and Nokia are still trying to find its feet after a lengthy absence from the scene.
