We knew it was coming and it has finally happened - Nokia is back in the smartphone game. The new Nokia 6 marks the glorious return and the industry is still quite busy poking around for more info on the new ambassador of the legendary Finnish brand.
To thicken the plot even further, HMD Global, which holds the rights to the name, has also promised a slew of other announcements on February 26. So mark the date and start counting down, as some info has also surfaced on a potential Nokia 8 flagship model. In the meantime, after some uncertainty, we are also happy to report that the Nokia 6 will be leaving China after all.
Although the spotlight was naturally usurped by Nokia, many other rumors also graced the first week of 2017, giving us a lot to look forward to.
Samsung might be gearing up for a whole new device family this year and the refreshed Moto G line should be coming shortly. LG is likely busy working on the G6 and it should come as no surprise that Xiaomi already has a Redmi or two in the works.
HTC started 2017 with a couple of hot announcements - the U Ultra and U Play devices. A new Vive handset should be coming shortly as well.
Huawei also has a new phone to kick off the year - unfortunately one with a seriously confusing name. And, as expected, the mystery surrounding the future iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy S8 keeps constantly unraveling bit by bit as well.
Nokia 6 comes with Android 7.0 Nougat and an unibody carved from a solid block of 6000 series aluminum.
A bunch of live photos let us take a better look of the new smartphone.
The device will allegedly come with a stunning camera and a Snapdrgon 835 CPU.
UareU is one catchy slogan, but we tend to like our 3.5mm jacks - none to be found on the Ultra.
So the handset that was said to launch either as the Moto X (2017) or Moto C is in fact the G5 Plus.
Ghostek has listed a shock-resistant case for the upcoming Galaxy S8.
Nokia (well, HMD) is coming to the MWC again, nostalgia and hope swell.
Expected to be the Redmi Note 4.
The device is said to be the Redmi Note 4X. However, the design revealed by these images is different from what we saw at TENAA late last month.
The leak came in the form of a Weibo post that also revealed model numbers for these devices - SM-X9000 and SM-X9050.
The recently announced mid-range smartphone will be exclusive to China, at least at first.
Apple will thus abandon the aluminum alloys it's been using for its smartphones in the past few years.
The device is going to be resonating with your personality, self-expression and lifestyle, the video says.
The Japanese company is reportedly looking to finally adopt the technology for its top of the line offerings.
TA-1003 variant of the handset appears in Bluetooth certification and it may be the global unit.
This is the actual Nokia, by the way, not HMD.
Owners of the smaller iPhone 7, please look away.
It's being said that even a prototype model of the Galaxy S8 has been developed, and sent to the tech giant's CEO and Vice Chairman.
This was revealed by the company's Chairman and CEO of the consumer division Yu Chengdong.
If the name isn't confusing enough, some markets might get it as P9 Lite (2017).
Both Samsung Pay Mini and Bixby are spotted on Samsung's website.
This comes less than a week after the device's hands-on images and specs leaked.
This was revealed in a filing by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
HTC U Play comes with new AI assistant and Helio P10 but lacks 3.5 mm audio jack.
Both devices are expected at MWC but LG Electronics will start selling their flagship on March 10.
YouTube video tells us that LG is a device with bigger screen but smaller bezel.
No Xperia devices yeah? Then the rumor mill is not on fire!
Nothing interesting here. moving on. These phones look all alike. All of them are 5.7"+. That's boring. Why won't anyone make a small but powerful 4" phone to spice things up?
Am pretty sure, nobody needs to mark your words;)
