  • Nokia 6.1 Plus with 19:9 display debuts in India for just ?15,999 ($230)

    HMD Global’s latest budget phone delivers in the areas that matter.

    HMD Global unveiled the Nokia X6 earlier this year in China, and the device is now making its way to global markets as the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The phone is now official in India, and will be available up for sale starting August 30 from Nokia’s website and Flipkart.

    The Nokia 6.1 Plus features a 5.8-inch all-screen front with a notched 19:9 panel, and is powered by the Snapdragon 636. It also comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard, and has 12MP + 5MP cameras at the back and a 16MP shooter up front. Other specs include Wi-Fi ac, FM radio, Bluetooth 5.0, and a 3060mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.

    HMD is doubling down on production capacity in India, and is projecting a 2x increase in revenue from the country as a result. The Finnish manufacturer is also starting to aggressively price its devices in the country, with the Nokia 6.1 Plus set to go on sale from August 30 for just ₹15,999 ($230). The…

  • Nokia 6.1 Plus preview: The start of something great

    HMD finally made a budget phone that can take on Xiaomi and Honor.

    The Nokia 6 series holds special value for HMD Global. The Nokia 6 was the first Android device to feature Nokia branding, and it was one of the manufacturer’s best-selling devices last year. The phone wasn’t without its faults, however, as the Snapdragon 430 was underwhelming in day-to-day usage.

    Nokia did a magnificent job optimizing the software to run on underpowered hardware during its Windows Phone days, which is why budget Lumia phones weren’t laggy. That system doesn’t work on Android though, and to its credit, HMD fixed a lot of the performance issues with the 2018 refresh of the Nokia 6, the Nokia 6.1 2018. The Nokia 6.1 2018 retained a similar design aesthetic but offered much more powerful hardware in the form of a Snapdragon 630.

    HMD is now rolling out a third model in the Nokia 6 series, the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The phone made its debut a few months ago in China as the Nokia X6, and is the first from HMD t…

  • Nokia 7 Plus will receive Android 9.0 Pie stable update in September

    The Nokia 7 Plus will be the first Snapdragon 660 phone to receive the Android 9.0 Pie update.

    The Nokia 7 Plus was one of seven devices in the third-party Android beta program, and the phone picked up the Beta 4 build earlier in the month. HMD Global has mentioned that it is in the final stages of the beta program, with a stable build slated for the device in the coming weeks.

    At a media event in New Delhi, HMD’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas confirmed that the Nokia 7 Plus would be receiving the stable Android 9.0 Pie update in September, becoming the first Snapdragon 660 device to do so.

    The rest of the devices in HMD’s portfolio will receive the Pie update in the coming months, and based on the brand’s track record, we should see the likes of the Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 6.1 pick up the Android 9.0 Pie stable build before the end of the year.

  • Twitch Prime is dropping ad-free viewing in September

    Twitch Prime’s list of perks is getting a little thinner starting next month.

    Twitch Prime is a great way to earn a load of extra goodies if you consume a lot of content on the streaming service. Since launch, the company has given out free monthly channel subscriptions, free games, and in-game loot as part of the program. But there’s one perk that’s about to get the ax: ad-free viewing.

    In an update posted to its blog today, Twitch announced that it will cut ad-free viewing from its Twitch Prime benefits for new subscribers starting on September 14. The reason? A re-evaluation of existing benefits as the company “[continues] to add value to Twitch Prime.” From the post:

    Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible. This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers for doing what they love. We want Twitch to remain a place where anyone can enjoy one-of-a-ki…
