Prior to the launch of HMD's refreshed trio of low-end devices, the company's global marketing manager, Neil Broadley, confirmed that the latest major version of Android will come to the entire Nokia portfolio as part of its commitment to the "pure, secure, and up-to-date" mantra.
Bethesda Posts Fallout Teaser on Twitter and Twitch, Obsidian Denies Involvement
Obsidian has denied any involvement with a new Fallout project so far on Twitter , so unfortunately, we won't see a New Vegas 2 . Bethesda will also hold its E3 press conference on Sunday, June 10th, so we will probably hear more about it there as well.
And at the bottom, HMD upgraded its Nokia 2 phone, only seven months after it was introduced, to the Nokia 2.1. Entertainment is also likely to be improved somewhat by the stereo speakers. Powering up the device is a Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Mobile Platform. On the design-front, the Nokia 3.1 features a dual-anodized cut found on the company's more premium phones.
Nokia 3.1 will be released throughout the world starting from June onwards before followed by Nokia 5.1 in July. The display has a pixel density of 443 PPI and a 2.5D curved glass is also present on top. The most basic version comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which will be €139 (about $160, £120, AU$215). The phone also features a 3000mAh battery which provides it with up to 19 hours of talk time, 9.4 hours of full HD video playback, and 24.5 days standby time. HMD Global has gone with the unannounced MediaTek Helio P18 processor, which is an octa-core chipset that's claimed to deliver 40% better performance than the Snapdragon 430 chipset seen on the Nokia 5. There's a slight bump in spec for the rear camera, although once again the front camera is unchanged. Performance was one of our main problems with that phone, so we're hoping the improvement in the new Nokia 3 is a suitable fix to those problems. Milled from a single block of aluminum there is a satin finish. And yes, the Nokia 3.1 also lacks a fingerprint scanner.
A Mediatek processor runs at a higher clock speed and has the same RAM and storage configurations as the Nokia 3.1. The display has been improved in all areas. Last year's 720p display begat a huge resolution bump in the form of a 2:1 full HD panel at 5.5 inches across. There will be a 2/16GB option or 3/32GB option (with microSD on both), available for €189 or €219 respectively.
