Nokia blasted off at Mobile World Congress launching not one, but five new phones. Perhaps Nokia has tetraphobia – avoiding a number four series because it is considered unlucky in China.
Frivolity aside the announcement is pretty impressive for a company barely a year old that now has nine smartphones and eighteen variants of feature phones.
GadgetGuy recently reviewed the Nokia 8 with Android Oreo and said, “HMD needs to do a little more R&D as the Nokia 8 is very good in parts but is let down in some areas as a flagship.”
The new Nokia 8 Sirocco has addressed many of our suggestions and is now ready to give other flagships a run for the money.
Brief specifications include:
What’s missing: 3.5mm audio jack, stereo speaker, still 16:9 screen, IP rating not disclosed
GadgetGuy’s take: The upgraded camera looks excellent
The new Nokia 7 Plus is what Nokia calls a hero phone for everyone. It has gone to 18:9 format screen and retains the Sirocco dual camera setup.
What’s missing: Qi charge (not usual on mid-range), 3.5” audio jack, no stereo speaker, IP rating not disclosed
Nokia says its new Nokia 6 is a phone you can rely on. Sorry, Nokia you need to rely on every phone!
What’s missing: Qi charge (not usual on mid-range), no stereo speaker, IP rating not disclosed, still 16:9 format screen.
Nokia 1 is billed as a complete Nokia smartphone experience, accessible to everyone – and we hope so!
It is a first phone, give it to your kids and slip in a pre-paid sim.
The fifth announcement is for the Nokia 8810; another retro icon ‘banana’ phone reloaded to have 4G.
This camera that will boast an answer of 2592 x 1944 pixels resembles cameras which can be usually seen on pricier
phones. We are unsure from the exact time from the arrival with the gadget out there, however the time is just not too far.
The Nokia N8 Silver edition carries a massive memory of 16GB which may even be further expanded with Micro – SD cards which
can be well suited for storing all of those excellent pictures and videos clips.
