Nokia 3.1 Plus announced: 6″ HD+ display, dual cameras, and 2-day battery life

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

At an event in India today, HMD Global announced yet another new model. Just days after introducing the impressive mid-range Nokia 7.1, today's unveiling was all about the budget Nokia 3.1 Plus. As the name suggests, it's a larger version of the Nokia 3.1 that launched in the summer (of which Corbin was a big fan), with the screen size jumping up to 6 inches from 5.2".

The display is still an HD+ panel, but the ratio has also changed to a more in-vogue 18:9.

Nokia unveils True Wireless Earbuds and Pro Wireless Earphones

Friday, October 5th, 2018

HMD Global just announced its latest hardware at a swanky event in London, leading with the intriguing mid-range Nokia 7.1 smartphone. The company also introduced some literally-named companion audio products — meet the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and Pro Wireless Earphones.

I thought the distinction between earbuds and earphones had been completely forgotten, so well done to HMD for resurrecting it. The True Wireless Earbuds are in the same vein as Earin's M–2 and others, with an impressively small profile and a conveniently-sized case.

HMD Global gives in, announces bootloader unlock program for the Nokia 8

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

HMD Global, the manufacturer of the recent Nokia phones, has notoriously been against releasing kernel source codes for its devices, despite their popularity. And even when it does push those out to the development community, it typically prevents people from unlocking the phones' bootloaders, which hampers customization options. But this morning brought news that Nokia 8 owners could do just that: unlock their bootloaders.

Kernel source code for the Nokia 6.1 is now available

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

The Nokia 6.1 is HMD Global's sequel to last year's immensely popular Nokia 6. It's a great phone, as we covered in our review, and now its kernel source code is publicly available for developers to tinker with.

Unfortunately, the kernel source release is little more than HMD following the legal requirements of various open-source licenses, since all Nokia Android phones are bootloader-locked. Since custom ROMs and recoveries are out of the question with locked devices, there's not much developers can actually do with the source code package right now.

Nokia 5.1 Plus announced in India, with a notched 5.8″ display, MTK Helio P60, and dual rear cameras

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

HMD Global has unveiled its latest mid-range Nokia-branded handset in India, confirming an earlier leak that suggested similar design language to the Nokia X6 and subsequent X5 released in China. What they have in common is a notched display, 5.8 inches and 19:9 in the case of the 5.1 Plus. There's also an octo-core MediaTek Helio P60 chip, and dual rear cameras on board.

If you don't mind the notch, it's not an unattractive device — the 2.5D curved glass around the sides of the screen should feel pretty good in the hand.

Nokia Camera adds Google Lens, Motion Photos, and more in latest update [APK Download]

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

OEMs tend to include custom camera software with their phones, but they're rarely anything to write home about. The imaging app HMD Global ships on its Nokia-branded devices is a something of an exception, however. An update earlier this year revived the beloved Pro Camera mode from the old Lumia phones. The latest version (90.9.1123.20) comes with a host of new goodies.

What's New
  • Comprehensive support for Google Lens and Google Motion
  • New carousel design to bring you a brand new camera experience while switching among different modes

Joining camera apps from various other manufacturers, Google Lens is now integrated into Nokia Camera.

Nokia 3.1 review: In a league of its own

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Nokia 3.1 is one of HMD Global's newest budget phones, positioned between the Android Go-equipped Nokia 2.1 and the mid-range Nokia 5.1. The phone was announced in May of this year, and went on sale in the United States earlier this month.

All the hallmarks of recent Nokia devices are present, including great build quality, a stock Android experience, and good specifications for the price. HMD Global had to make some cuts to reach the sub-$160 price point, like dropping the fingerprint sensor, but I think the Nokia 3.1 is still a solid device.
