One of the unique features of Nokia, and later Nokia Lumia devices was Glance Screen. It was unique till the day Samsung, and LG decided to rip off the feature and re-introduce it with a new name. We were kind of disappointed that the Chinese version of Nokia 6 did not have “full” Glance, but only when charging the device. Spontaneously, while watching some German Nokia 3, 5 and 6 hands on videos, we caught a few seconds of Glance Screen on Nokia 3 that was not connected to a power source.
We are not sure if someone installed an app from Google Play Store that mimics Glance Screen or is it a built in feature? We asked Nokia Mobile about it, and are still waiting for an answer. We will update the article with HMD’s official response when it arrives.
Update: Nokia Mobile denied that Glance is supported for Nokia 3, 5 and 6.
Update 2: Nokia Mobile Facebook team says that the new smartphones support a feature similar to Glance.
Update 3: The Twitter team says again that phones don’t have Glance or a similar feature. The Facebook team made a mistake.
