Friday, September 21st, 2018

The first two weeks of October is lining up to be an exceedingly busy time for phone unveilings — we've got Google's big hardware event that will include the Pixel 3, the second-gen Razer Phone 2, the LG V40 ThinQ, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Pro (what a name, right), and now it seems as though HMD Global is planning to launch the Nokia 7.1 Plus on October 4th.

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.

HMD publishes Nokia 2.1 kernel source code

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

The Nokia 2.1 was announced back in late May, and it's HMD's new budget offering. With pricing starting at around $115 for an Android Go phone with a 4.000mAh battery, it sounds like a decent deal. HMD has just released the source code for the 2.1, nearly a month after it did so for the 5.1.

HMD is required to release the source code by the GPL. That would ordinarily help with custom ROM and recovery development, but since Nokia refuses to allow its bootloaders to be unlocked, this doesn't really do much good.

HMD publishes Nokia 5.1 kernel source code

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

HMD Global may still be refusing to unlock bootloaders, but it's required to release each phone's source code by the GPL. The company has just published the kernel source for the Nokia 5.1, which was announced a little under two months ago.

For those unfamiliar with source code, it allows developers to build custom software like ROMs and custom recoveries more easily. However, because Nokia is refusing to allow its bootloaders to be unlocked, there's really not much that can be done.

Nokia 1 review: Stepping into 2018 with hardware from 2011

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Over the past year or two, HMD Global has ushered a revival of the Nokia brand with stock Android software under the hood. But perhaps none of the smartphones it has released has been more reminiscent of the Nokia of yore than this Nokia 1 — a device that looks like it took a time machine from Espoo in 2011 to 2018, with a quick detour in Mountain View for a fresh coat of Android 8.1 paint.

Nokia 6.1 review: The best budget phone of the year is not without its flaws

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

 


The budget phone space is certainly filling up with some spectacular options. From the extremely capable Honor 7X to the newly-released Moto G6, buyers strapped for cash have several great phones to choose from. But as much as those devices have impressed us in the last few months, HMD Global's Nokia 6.1 has surpassed all of my expectations for a sub-$300 phone.

On paper, it sure sounds like it ticks all the boxes.

Nokia reportedly working on Snapdragon 845 device with in-display fingerprint sensor

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Many of us are perfectly happy with the fingerprint scanner positioned on the back of our phones — where there's plenty of room even as bezels on the front shrink. However, under-display sensors continue to be heralded as the next great innovation in mobile tech. Vivo has shown everyone else what's possible and other OEMs are sure to follow suit, hoping that the wow-factor alone will move consumers to get on board.

Nokia 7 Plus review: A flagship at heart, a midranger in price

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

The Finnish company has been doing an excellent job of reviving the brand by sticking to a few core guidelines: good hardware, competitive prices, pure Android software, and fast updates.
