Live from Moscow: Launch of new Nokia phones


The day of the second global event this year has come, where Nokia Mobile will be announcing new members of their 2018 lineup of smartphones and featurephones. At the beginning of the year, Nokia Mobile announced the Nokia 6.1, exclusively in China. After that, we saw the global premiere of Nokia 1, 6.1, 7 plus, 8 Sirocco and Nokia 8110 4G at MWC2018. A few weeks ago, the Chinese market again got a new member from the Nokia family, the notched Nokia X6, and today we will see the latest addition(s) to the Nokia family ready to fight for their place under the sun on the global market.

I won’t be saying much about expectations, because we already wrote about it here, but HMD has been really secretive this year, and we practically have no idea what will we see today. Yeah, we can expect the new 3, and 5, but we know nothing about them.

Anyways, you can follow the event via livestreams on Facebook and YouTube. The livestreams start at 18:40 Moscow time (UTC+3). I will be there on the ground and update the article with relevant News as the event unfolds. Later, you can expect a deeper dive into details and First impressions. Stay tuned 🙂


First impressions of the Nokia 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1 from the Nokia event in Russia




Hi guys, the event started, with band and Pekka Rantala jumping on the stage. It looks like this is going to be an important event :).

As you already know, we are there, our Stipe is there but he is standing so he is unable to write live blog so follow his posts on twitter.


Do you feel #ChargedUp?


Florian Seiche has just been announced on stage, and I like that band that is doing that Nokia tune differently every time.

Nokia is now present on 200 markets and are actively selling phones at 90 markets. Interestingly, Nokia is now leading the list of best feature phone manufacturers. Regarding the smartphones, Nokia is starting to show up on many markets on the top 5 manufacturer list, and it is there also on Russian market.

This is strategy of Nokia Mobile, Expend, Deepen and Innovate!

Now is time for Juho, which also got introduced by his version of Nokia tune 🙂

Juho is speaking of production process and testings that Nokia phones are going through. HMD is also torturing Nokia phones to make them better for us 🙂

Finally, all the users of Nokia 8 will get new camera app starting this Friday. It is complete overhaul of the camera, not just an update.

So, all the Nokia phones, well smartphones will be getting Android P. Nokia 7 plus is now able to get latest P Beta.
