No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you what you’re looking at is in fact the Nokia 3310.Some 17 years after it was originally released to the public Nokia has brought its iconic smartphone back to life complete with an staggering month of battery life and yes, it has Snake.Here’s the bad news: It doesn’t have WhatsApp or Facebook or Snapchat or access to any of the services we’ve come to demand from our smartphones.What it does have though is 22-hours of talk-time and a full month of stand-by battery life.It also has a brand-new colour version of the iconic mobile game Snake.The original Nokia 3310 was released to the public in 2000 and went on to sell over 100 million units worldwide.
p If you’re looking for a retro aid for your digital detox, you might want to consider HMD’s remake of the Nokia 3310.The iconic handset was many people’s first ever mobile and garnered a reputation for being near-indestructible.Now, more than 17 years before the original was launched, the Nokia 3310 is back with a subtle redesign courtesy of HMD.The new handset will be available to buy in the UK from 24 May with a price tag of £49.99 – much less than its original of £129.It has no wifi, no 4G, no app store and no access to Facebook or WhatsApp, making it an ideal tool for those looking to cut down on social media.And yes, it comes with snake.
That’s good news I guess for the credibility and after sales support that Nokia plans to have for their fans, don’t you think?According to an official statement issued yesterday by Juho Sarvikas (HMD’s chief product officer) the Nokia 3 is on track to receive an even newer version of Android.According to him, by the end of August, Nokia 3 will be updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat.That’s good news for all those Nokia fans out there for sure.Remember however that the Finnish company hasn’t unveiled – yet- a lot of smartphones so the update procedure for their developers/technicians is quite simple at the moment.It’s relatively easy to do the work for 3 or 4 new products and another to have to support tens of different Android devices running on different Android OS versions.
Nokia has launched the most important new handset in its attempts to revitalise the once world-beating brand for the modern smartphone era dominated by Samsung, Apple and China’s Huawei.The Nokia 8 marks the culmination of efforts to bring the Finnish telecoms brand back to the mainstream handset market, which kicked off six months ago with the nostalgia-inducing remake of the classic Nokia 3310 feature phone.The Android flagship smartphone, designed to compete with the likes of the iPhone 7 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8, features a polished aluminium body, Carl Zeiss cameras, spatial audio pulled from Nokia’s high-end 360-degree camera and a high-resolution 5.3-inch screen.Nokia handsets are being revived by HMD Global, a private equity-backed firm led by former employees of the Finnish company.The company is pushing what it calls the “bothie” as the next evolution of the selfie, using Nokia’s Dual Sight technology to fire up both the rear and front-facing cameras at the same time, shooting video or photos of a subject and the smartphone operator simultaneously, which can be shared live directly to Facebook or YouTube.“We know that fans are creating and sharing live content more than ever before, with millions of photos and videos shared every minute on social media,” said Juho Sarvikas, HMD chief product officer.

Android Oreo was announced to be coming to all current-age Nokia smartphones over the weekend.The timing of these updates is not yet known, but Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer for HMD Global seems to believe that the company is ready and capable of bringing the newest version of Oreo to all new Nokia phones.HMD Global is the company that currently licenses the Nokia brand name to create smartphones with what remains of the original Nokia company.HMD Global has a pretty gosh-darned good track record of bringing updates to Android devices – especially lately.HDM Global phones of all sorts have been getting Security Updates lately, at least.Security Updates are the most essential updates to Android devices – followed closely by full OS updates for new and tweaked features.
According to Juho Sarvikas from the HMD Global will all of this year's Nokia-branded android phones to be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo.It means that Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8, in due time, will get the latest version of the platform.given that the devices have been launched in the years it is no surprise, but for those who have a new Nokia, it is still nice with a confirmation.Even the entrance model Nokia 3 will receive the Oreo.Sarvikas, however, choose to not comment on when the updates might land.All of our smartphones will upgrade to Oreo, the Nokia 3 included.
In a tweet sent out over the weekend, HMD Global‘s chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas, confirmed that current Nokia smartphones will be receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Sarvikas even committed to the budget Nokia 3 getting the update despite some delays in that device getting the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update.
the HMD Globals flaggskeppstelefon Nokia 8 has been available in the Swedish stores since 8 september.Now, the device has been seen in the well-known tool Geekbench, together with the Android Oreo.It is confirmed that all the smartphones manufactured by HMD Global; Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8, it will receive a FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air) upgrade to Android Oreo 8.0, and according to a Twitter post from Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, should the update to arrive in the near future.the Manufacturer has not set any deadline but we expect that Nokia 8 will receive the update in the fall.For the currently running Nokia 8 Android Nougat 7.1.1 with the August monthly säkerhetspatch while the Nokia 5, and 6 have already received the september's patch.

The Nokia 3310 is a solid feature phone that was received with accolades by both reviewers and users alike but fell short of expectation with its lack of support for 3G networks.The absence of that singular feature meant fans in many countries including Singapore, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the U.S where 2G networks are been phased out wouldn’t get hold of the device.Well, HMD Global has heeded to the cries of its fans World over and has just released the iconic Nokia 3310 in a 3G variant.Speaking on the launch, HMD Global chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas said “Our fans around the world have been asking for this iconic phone to support 3G.Fans asked, we listened, and today welcome the Nokia 3310 3G.”The 3G connectivity option aside, the Nokia 3320 3G variant is the same device announced at MWC earlier this year, but now available in new colors, with an enhanced and customizable user interface which allows users change the icon colors and position to ensure your favorite functions are exactly where you want them to be.
Earlier this year, HMD Global revived Nokia’s classic 3310 candy bar phone with only the slightest updates.And next month, the phone is in for another tweak: a new version is getting support for 3G, which will open it up for use in a lot more countries — including the US.The phone should work on AT and T-Mobile, but not Verizon and Sprint.The new Nokia 3310 3G will sell for €69 (about $81 USD), a slight bump up from the original version, which sold for €49 (about $58 USD).There are some other slight changes, too: the new model is ever-so-slightly taller, wider, and thicker.And in a very big change, its estimated battery life is way down, from 22 hours of talk time on the 2G version to just 6.5 hours on the 3G version.

Does your phone's battery die too quickly?Are you sick of lugging around a power pack to top up your phone throughout the day?Well, HMD Global has announced the entry-level Nokia 2 phone which the Finnish company says will last for two days on a single charge off its massive 4,100 mAh battery.It also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 quad-core processor, a 5-inch 1280x720 LCD, an 8 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage which is expandable to 128GB with a microSD card."Every component of the Nokia 2 — from the display to battery, chipset to system design — has been engineered to draw as little power as possible from the huge battery," said Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer at HMD Global.The phone runs Android Nougat with Google Assistant built-in, and will be upgraded to Oreo sometime in the future, according to HMD.
Nokia and HMD are keeping up their promise of releasing fast updates to the collection of Android devices they announced this year.After the rather timely monthly security fixes, now’s the time to get a more substantial update in the form of Android 8.0 Oreo but you’ll need to have a Nokia 8 to get your first taste.Sure enough, the update has now started rolling out for the Nokia 8 flagship.This has been confirmed in a Twitter post by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas.According to the tweet, the company took user feedback under heavy consideration, everything has been “polished” and the update is rolling out today.Android 8.0 Oreo comes with array of features including Background limits, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), Snoozing individual notification, Wide-gamut color for apps, Adaptive icons, Companion device pairing, Keyboard navigation, AAudio API for Pro Audio and more.
HMD Global seems to be fulfilling their promise of keeping Nokia phones among the updated part of Android smartphones.The company started the Oreo beta program for their flagship Nokia 8 on October, and less than a month since it, the company is rolling out the stable release.Now according to HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, the company will start the beta program for two of their mid-range smartphones, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5.The confirmation has been made through the HMD CPO’s official Twitter account, after a question made by a user.video are just a few reasons whyHowever, there is no information of when the updates will roll out for both handsets.
Android Oreo has been out for months now but, naturally, most OEMs haven’t been quick to jump into it.But they do say “better late than never” and, to be fair, it isn’t exactly that late yet anyway.As if scheduled to coincide with Thanksgiving, some manufacturers have gotten the ball rolling on Android 8.0 Oreo (sadly not 8.1) for some models.But even they were not able to bring Oreo to even their most premium model fast enough.Following last month’s open beta testing, HMD Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas proudly announced on Twitter that Oreo is finally available for the Nokia 8.Of course, that doesn’t mean everyone will get it immediately all at once.
