Nokia 8 Sirocco finally gets a slice of Android 9 Pie

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Owners of HMD Global's Nokia 8 Sirocco understandably thought that buying the flagship Android One model would guarantee them fast updates, but they've since had to sit back and watch plenty of other phones get Pie ahead of them. Thankfully, the wait is over and the rollout starts today.

As HMD points out, it's the 8th Nokia phone to get bumped to the latest version of Android. The Nokia 8 Sirocco is undoubtedly the darling of the lineup, at least until the Nokia 9 PureView becomes official, so it's good to see that it's now caught up with its cheaper siblings.

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The recently released Nokia 8.1 (also called Nokia X7 in China) is one of the more powerful Android One devices you can currently buy. HMD Global launched the phone last month with Android Pie and has now published the kernel source code.

The Nokia 8.1 is a solid mid-range offering, with a Snapdragon 710 chip, a 6.2" 1080p display, and a healthy amount of RAM, battery, and internal storage.

HMD releases kernel source code for the Nokia 7 Plus

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

The Nokia 7 Plus is one of the HMD Global's higher-specced phones, although still technically mid-range with its Snapdragon 660 chip and 6" IPS LCD display, it's one of the best Android One phones you can get. The Finnish company has now published the kernel source code.

Sadly, as with all Nokia-branded Android devices, the bootloader is locked so the code won't be much use to any ROM builders. Releasing the code is part of the deal with a GPL phone, and HMD is merely complying.

Nokia 9 PureView with five rear cameras could be real after all

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

A couple of months ago, we saw some supposed leaked images of a Nokia phone with five cameras on the back. It wasn't enough to go on at the time and looked like it could be a crazy fake, but new information leads us to believe such a device is indeed coming.

These images come from the usually reliable @OnLeaks, in partnership with 91mobiles. He's provided a selection of renders, some in 5K, and a 360-degree video.

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.
