HMD Global to bring back Nokia X! To Launch in April 27th?

Published

on

Nokia X was the first ever smartphone Nokia tried with Android when they realized the fact that their Windows Phone devices are not doing good in the market. The irony is that the Nokia X did not even feel like an Android Phone. It was the failed attempt of the giant smartphone maker to capture the smartphone market.

Despite all these, HMD Global is planning to bring back the device from the past. Billboards have been spotted which shows two phones crossed against each other to form an X shape. Take a look at the image below.

The image hints at few major design aspects. The most notable ones are the presence of a 2.5D curved display and a metal back with curved corners. Till now, there have been no leaks regarding the device. We are not sure if the company has plans to launch the device as a flagship or a mid-range one. The news of the existence of the Nokia X is a surprise to the tech industry.

We expect that HMD Global makes this phone a flagship one. This is because if a company decides to recall a device from the past, it naturally won’t give up or compromise in terms of the hardware and software. But there is also a small probability for the device to be mid-range as the original Nokia X was actually a mid-range device.

The device is scheduled to be launched on April 27th. Till now, we have no word regarding the specifications of the device. We hope the company decides to add more power to the device so that it will sustain and survive in the highly competitive market.

Blackberry Ghost & Ghost Pro To Launch as Blackberry Evolve & Evolve Pro

Earlier we knew that Blackberry’s Indian licensee, Optiemus would be launching two new Blackberry smartphones- Blackberry Ghost and Ghost Pro. Even the previous reports and leaks referred to the phones using that name. However, today, popular tipster Even Blass has said out that the phones will be named as Blackberry Evolve and Evolve Pro. He further clarified that ‘Ghost’ was just a codename for the device.

The device, codenamed Blackberry Ghost was a thing for the first time a few months back and then some renders emerged. Recently we heard that the phone will pack a big 4000mAh battery.

As of now, the rumors claim that the Blackberry Evolve and Evolve X will sport a futuristic look from 2018, i.e. a bezel-less display. However, we are not quite sure about the implementation of the bezel-less design as the renders showed no sign of notch.  Though the renders point towards a glass and metal build. In other markets, Blackberry partnered with TCL, but even with those phones, Blackberry seemed to stick with mid-sized batteries with only one exception- Blackberry Motion. Blackberry Motion is the only smartphone from the brand packing a huge 4000mAh battery.

There is no info regarding the launch of Blackberry Evolve and Evolve Pro, but the Optiemus made Blackberry phones may be exclusive in India and may mark the starting of a bezel-less design era for Blackberry.

Now, Xiaomi has finally confirmed the release date of the Mi A2 along with the A2 Lite. Both the smartphones are scheduled to be launched globally at an event held at Madrid, Spain, on July 24.

The announcement comes from Xiaomi’s official Twitter handle. While the Xiaomi Mi A2 is the rebrand of the China-exclusive Mi 6X, the recently unveiled Redmi 6 Pro will be launched as Mi A2 Lite in global markets.

Additionally, Xiaomi’s global spokesperson Donovan Sung too acknowledged the same on Twitter. He posted a teaser image showcasing the back panel of both the devices, having vertically stacked dual camera setup, under the Android One branding.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 will come with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Under the hood, it will be powered by the Qualcomm 660 SoC coupled with 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of onboard storage.

The Mi A2 is powered by a 3,010mAh battery aided by QuickCharge 3.0, whereas, the A2 lite sports a larger 4000mAh battery which unfortunately lacks any sort of fast charging. Both the devices will boot Stock Android 8.1 Oreo under the Android One program.

Vivo has launched a new entry-level  smartphone in its Y-series in India, Vivo Y71i. It’s a toned down cheaper version of the Vivo Y71 launched back in April.  Now, Twitter handle of Mahesh Telecom (who has previously broke out news of various low key product launches) has posted the specs of Vivo Y71i before it’s launch.
