Verizon is the first major US carrier to offer one of HMD Global’s Nokia phones, launching a custom version of the Nokia 2.1 starting today.

Verizon’s version, called the Nokia 2 V Prepaid, is one of the few Android Oreo Go phones sold in the US.

Android Go devices are low-cost phones usually reserved for countries like China and India, and for people with limited internet connectivity.

The Nokia 2 V has a basic spec list, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor and 1GB of RAM.

There’s a 5.5-inch HD display with two cameras, one 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP selfie camera.

The phone comes in two colors, blue and silver, and its 4,000 mAh battery is bigger than most, which HMD Global says should last up to two days on standby.

The Nokia 6 went on sale in the US in the summer via Amazon, starting at $179.99 with lock screen adverts, or $229.99 without.

At the time, we said that, while the handset is capable, it’s also facing serious competition at the low-t0-midrange segment.

The Nokia 8, HMD Global’s flagship Nokia phone, looked like it could satisfy those looking for something a bit more powerful until it was recently revealed that it wouldn’t arrive in the US.

If you were disappointed by that news, you might be pleased to know that a suped-up version of the Nokia 6 looks like it’s on its way to the states.

The Nokia 6 Arte Black edition has been spotted on Amazon.com by phoneArena, starting at $299.

This is the Nokia 6 model that comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage space, up from the 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space in the regular Nokia 6.

Nokia/HMD Global had the one stand at Mobile World Congress that was completely packed from start to finish.

While the firms' Nokia 6 looks to be an excellent mid-range handset, most people were there to get a look at the modern incarnation of the Nokia 3310.

Both phones were deserved ‘Best of MWC’ winners, but it seems the retro device won’t work in many countries across the world, including the US and Canada.

While the Nokia 3310 is an updated version of a classic piece of tech, it still features some of the original's specs, including the frequencies used to connect to the networks – 900MHz and 1800MHz.

The problem is that most carriers in the US and Canada no longer support these old bands.

CNET notes that to work with a carrier such as AT, the 2G-only phone would have to use the 850MHz frequency in addition to 1900MHz.

Like we reported a few hours ago, the Nokia X6 smartphone will be unveiled in about three days from now, as a continuation of the X-series of Nokia phones and a refresh of the Symbian-powered Nokia X6 that was first announced back in 2009.

We expected the device to be shrouded in secrecy considering the very short time between the first leak and the release date, but now, a render of the device has just surfaced on the web for you to drool over.

Reported by Digitech, the Nokia X6 rear design seen in the render is quite reminiscent of the Nokia 7 plus with its copper accents and dual rear camera placement.

While the Nokia 7 plus has its LED flash by the side of the dual camera setup, the Nokia X6 LED flash as seen below sits in between the camera setup and the fingerprint scanner.

And while we expect HMD Global to try the notch design with a more premium device, the company is opting for the trendy notched and bezel-free design as already adopted by other copycats phones.

The bezels on both sides are almost non-existent, but there exists a bit of it on the chin where we now have the Nokia logo.

HMD Global is definitely kicking all around with their Nokia branded phones.

The company successfully made the brand shine once again, after some years of demise in the Windows Phone Force’s side.

Although its good performance inside China, the company still can’t compete with the likes of OPPO, Xiaomi and Huawei.

But we expect the company to grow in market share with some time.

Recent reports coming from the analyst Pan Jiutang, show that the company is doing well inside country besides the strong competition.

With a good performance in the sales of its smartphones.

Google has announced that the final, shipping version of the newest Android update is available for all Pixel phones today.

And, as usual, it has announced a name to go along with the over-the-air update: “Android 9 Pie.”

Android 9 Pie’s headline features are the same ones that we revealed back in May: a “Digital Wellbeing” dashboard, a new gesture-based navigation system, and other AI-enhanced improvements to the UI.

It also received many subtle improvements to the overall look of the software, including a new status bar that’s designed to work better with notches.

However, the official release will not include all of the features that Google announced at Google I/O.

The main things that will be missing are the Digital Wellbeing features, including the usage dashboard, app times, and a “wind down” setting for when you go to bed.

HMD Global is now reportedly rolling out an update to its most affordable smartphone till date, the Nokia 2 following the earlier confirmation that the device will be updated straight to the recently released Android Oreo 8.1.

According to a report on Nokiamob, the update which is about 88MB in size brings the Google’s security patch for December 2017 to the Nokia 2 and is currently rolling out to users in in India and other markets.

What is a little strange is why HMD Global has to wait until January 2018 before rolling out the December update, when we ought to be expecting the January update:

The update brings security patches for various vulnerabilities as highlighted in the open-source Android operating system.

The update is currently rolling out in batches, so it could take a little longer before you are prompted for the OTA update, if however you cant wait, you can open phone Settings, select Software Update, then tap Download Updates Manually.

HMD had earlier announced that all it current sets of Nokia Android Phones will get at least two years of OS update support and, the firm has so far has shown commitment in that regard.

HMD Global, the business vehicle set up to create and market Nokia-branded mobile devices, has appointed a new permanent CEO three months after Arto Nummela vacated the role.

Nummela previously headed up Microsoft’s mobile devices business in Greater Asia, the Middle East, and Africa after the company bought out Nokia’s mobile phone business.

But with Microsoft effectively exiting the mobile hardware market, Nummela was brought in to breathe new life into Nokia’s mobile brand via HMD Global.

Nummela’s departure back in July was sudden, but the Finnish company didn’t look too far to fill his shoes, appointing former HMD Global president Florian Seiche acting CEO for the past few months.

And now Seiche will step up into the position on a permanent basis.

“Florian has been co-leading HMD Global as president since the start of the company,” said HMD Global board chair Sam Chin.

It’s been a little under two years since HMD Global brought the Nokia smartphone brand back to life.

One of the more remarkable stats is that HMD Global has sold 70 million Nokia-branded phones in the past two years.

Recently, Britta Gerbracht — the new German marketing chief at HMD Global — attended a press conference to discuss the recently-released Nokia 8.1, via WinFuture.

That’s a huge number and represents a terrific success on HMD Global’s part.

The majority of Nokia phone buyers are over 35 years old, male, and previously purchased Nokia-branded phones before HMD Global took over the brand.

The average Nokia phone buyer also holds on to the phone for longer than most other buyers do with most other brands.

HMD Global just raised $100 million to help push the Nokia brand in 2018.

With this new funding, the HMD Global “unicorn” status is solidified, since it now is worth over $1 billion.

The company committed to “aggressively expanding” the Nokia brand, and reaffirmed its commitment to the Android One program.

Finnish startup HMD Global acquired the rights to sell Nokia-branded smartphones back in 2016 after Microsoft dumped the brand.

Since then, the company has brought Nokia back from the dead, as it were, with a continuing series of well-reviewed and popular mobile phones.

Now, to help expand the Nokia brand even further, HMD Global just raised $100 million in funding from multiple investors, “to scale business operations and fund the company’s growth in its second year,” according to the press release on the matter.
