PureMotion HD+ up now.

Better than HD res, fast refresh rate.

Automatic adjustment of screen color/contrast etc to different lighting environments.

They're now talking about wireless charging.

Nokia is making deals to place wireless charging plates in different places so you can charge your Lumia while waiting at different places. Nice!

Pleased wireless charging has come to town, means now it will only get better and better until eventually hopefully anywhere in the house just like wifi will charge your devices

GP007, did they say they're not yet going to unveil all of the Windows Phone 8 features or just that they're not going to mention them all in this event? Thanks for the updates, by the way :)

Probably some of the camera functions, doesn't look like they would need a new OS

They're saving the rest for another event Joe said.

They're demoing the new display now.

Thanks for letting me know :) I'm highly disappointed. I know they didn't state that they would announce all features at this event, but I'd really hoped they would. Right now, I'm set on getting an iPhone, but Microsoft can convince me otherwise if they include certain features I'd like (specifically some better Facebook integration) or impress me in other ways, but they really need to do that soon. I'm concerned that this "other event" might not even be until October :/ I wonder what their reasoning is for not announcing the new features yet. I can only hope it's because they're still working on awesome new additions ;)

Super sensitive touch display tech. Works naturally even with big winter gloves on.

New JBL PowerUP speaker, builtin in wireless charging and built in NFC.

Why do I suddenly get the feeling the wireless charger will come as a pricy accessory and by default you only get a regular charger?

Hmm, he seemed a little unsure if the wireless charging was going to work and overly happy that it did, looks like its not a perfected art yet

Same here. All they really showed off was the new Lenses feature on WP8. I was interested in the presentation while they were showing off the Lumia 920 and then it just got boring.

It was his attempt at making a joke. He wasn't really unsure.

City Lens demo sorta working, though the big screen isn't showing what he's seeing on the phone.

They're just talking about some new apps exclusive to Lumia devices.

I agree, he's not a very good presenter, doesn't really seem sure of any of the tech and panic's easy.

      HMD introduces the Nokia 1.4 with a larger display and a fingerprint sensor
      by João Carrasqueira

      HMD Global, the Finnish company responsible for Nokia-branded phones, has announced the latest of its entry-level series of phones, the Nokia 1.4. The new device brings some notable improvements to the Nokia 1 series, while keeping a very similar price tag.

      The Nokia 1.4 has a 6.51-inch HD+ "edge-to-edge" display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, which is much larger than previous members of the family. Despite having relatively small bezels on the sides and top, it still houses the Nokia logo at the bottom.

      The display has a cutout for the front-facing camera, which is a 5MP unit. Over on the back, the camera setup is the first to feature dual cameras in the Nokia 1 series. It has a primary 8MP camera along with a 2MP macro lens, and the camera experience is powered by Camera Go, Google's app for Android Go devices, and it supports features like night mode, in addition to having an LED flash.

      Below the camera setup is a fingerprint sensor, another first in the Nokia 1 series, so you can unlock the phone without typing in a PIN every time. The back itself appears to be textured to give it a better grip.

      As to what's inside the phone, the Nokia 1.4 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 just like its predecessor, meaning it has four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.3GHz. It also has up to 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage but this will vary by market. The battery is 4,000mAh and promises to last two days on a charge, like most Nokia phones. The phone runs Android 10 (Go edition) out of the box, but Nokia says it's Android 11-ready, so the update shouldn't take too long to roll out.

      The Nokia 1.4 is available from today and there are three configurations available - 1GB of RAM with 16GB of storage or 32GB of storage, or 3GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. The phone comes in three colors: Fjord (blue), Charcoal, and Dusk (purple). It starts at €99.

      Nokia finally begins Android 11 rollout with the Nokia 8.3 5G
      by João Carrasqueira

      It's been some time coming, but Nokia has begun rolling out the Android 11 update to its phones, starting with the Nokia 8.3 5G. The Finnish company seems to be significantly behind its schedule, as the original roadmap stated that the update would begin rolling out in the fourth quarter of 2020, and we're almost halfway into the first quarter of 2021.

      Android 11 is naturally a significant update, like most Android version updates. Since Nokia phones run fairly vanilla builds of Android, the news in this update boils down to the same updates announced by Google. The update brings a new Conversations section in the notification dropdown, app bubbles (similar to Facebook Messenger's "chat heads" but for more apps), a built-in screen recorder, smart home controls in the power menu, and more.

      As for who can get the update, it's a typical Nokia affair. The rollout is being done in waves starting with a few select markets, which are the following:

      Bahrain Belgium Denmark Egypt Finland

      France Hong Kong Iceland Iran Iraq Jordan Kuwait Lebanon Libya Lithuania Macau Morocco Norway Oman Pakistan Qatar Saudi Arabia Sweden Tunisia UAE USA Vietnam Even in these markets, the rollout is being done gradually. 10% of users in these markets should see the update today, and that should increase to 50% of users by Friday, February 5. It will be available to everyone in these markets on February 7.

      With the Android 11 rollout now underway, Nokia has some catching up to do. At least eight other phones were initially planned to get the update in the first quarter of the year, which might be a challenge at this point.

      Nokia and Vodafone trial 100 gigabit broadband speeds
      by João Carrasqueira



      Nokia and Vodafone have announced that they've become the first companies to trial 100Gbps broadband internet on a fiber passive optical network (PON). The speeds were possible on a single PON wavelength, and they're about 10 times faster than "the most advanced networks" available right now.

      The trial was conducted by Nokia and Vodafone in the latter company's lab in Eschorn, Germany. The 100Gbps was achieved using existing 25Gbps optics combined with special digital signal processing (DSP), which seems to be the focus of the trial. Nokia says that once this DSP technology is adopted, it should be relatively simple to scale up to 50Gbps or 100Gbps, and those speeds could be commercially available in the second half of this decade.

      The prototype tested in this trial is also the first application of flexible rate transmission in a passive optical network. This technology groups fiber modems with similar network characteristics, such as loss or dispersion, to improve latency on the network and reduce power consumption in half. This kind of technology could eventually help create more scalable networks to combat congestion during peak times.

      Gavin Young, head of Fixed Access Centre of Excellence at Vodafone, commented on the potential for this technology:

      As mentioned above, it will take some time for these speeds to potentially be available for the general public, but these trials do indicate that we're slightly closer than we were before. We'll have to wait for the technology to see further testing and widespread implementation in the coming months and years.

      Nokia 8.3 5G is going for a $120 discount on Amazon
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Amazon is offering the Nokia 8.3 5G with a $120 discount right now. The phone is going for $579, down from its original retail price of $699.

      For that price, you'll get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device comes in Polar Night and it is unlocked for all carriers.

      Announced in March of last year alongside the Nokia 5.3 and Nokia 1.3, the Nokia 8.3 5G was the first device to use Qualcomm's 5G RF Front end module. It's powered by a Snapdragon 765 SoC and sports a 6.81-inch FullHD+ PureDisplay.

      On its back, it has a PureView quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor and ZEISS branding. The camera module is housed in a circular bump with Nokia's logo to its south. It's backed up by a 4,500mAh battery.

      The device was launched in the U.S. in the fall of 2020 a few months after its debut in Europe, where it is available with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in addition to the higher memory configuration. If you want to snap up the phone today, the Nokia 8.3 5G is available to purchase for $579 via Amazon.

      Nokia 5.4 is HMD's latest mid-ranger, packing a Snapdragon 662 for €189
      by João Carrasqueira

      After introducing the entry-level Nokia C1 Plus just yesterday, HMD Global is now back with a new mid-range model, the Nokia 5.4. The Finnish company has been refreshing some of its smartphones multiple times throughout the year, with the Nokia 5.3 announced just a few months ago.

      The Nokia 5.4 curiously packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset, which is an apparent downgrade from the Snapdragon 665 of its predecessor. Based on Qualcomm's spec sheet, though, the Snapdragon 662 does have a better image signal processor, promising zero shutter lag and support for 48MP cameras.

      That's exactly what HMD is promising for the Nokia 5.4, which is likely to be an advantage for most users. There's also support for 60FPS recording, as well as a 24FPS cinematic mode, which can record video in the typical 21:9 format of theater movies, plus "professional color grading". The rest of the camera setup includes a 5MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. Over on the front, there's a 16MP camera.

      The 6.53-inch display comes in at HD+ resolution in the 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and it has a punch-hole front-facing camera. The Nokia 5.4 also has a 4,000mAh battery, which HMD says should last up to two days on a charge or, as the company puts it, 42 commutes (assuming an average 67-minute commute). The battery only charges at 10W, however. In terms of software, the phone is running Android 11, and as usual, the company promises two years of major software updates and three years of security updates.

      The Nokia 5.4 is available now in select markets for €189. It comes with Polar Night (blue) and Dusk (pink) colors.
