Nokia pushes for market share with 8 series

HMD Global, the new home of Nokia phones, is looking to position Nokia as the go-to smartphone for Filipinos across the different market segments. Nokia is running a pure Android experience, hence why it is possible to achieve fast rollout of new operating systems by Google.

The Nokia 3310 3G version has been announced for Australia, and it will be launched in other countries soon.

You're doing well, HMD. "We want to continue broadening and deepening our reach here, especially in untapped provinces that need high-quality mobile communication technologies", said Shannon Mead, HMD Global Country Manager, Philippines.

Although Google offers the new Android release updates to Nexus and Pixel phones for two years, the company's Android partners haven't always followed its lead. Other details about the Nokia 2 are scarce at the moment.


This seriously affected the Nokia 8's viability as an alternative to competitors like the OnePlus 5, at least within the enthusiast community, as the lack of official support for bootloader unlocking would greatly limit the device's customization potential. However, adding the 3G feature impacts the battery life, which now drops to 6.5 hours of talk time and up to 27 days of standby time.

The Nokia 8 lists at P29,990 SRP, while the Nokia 6 is available for P11,990. Either way, the company definitely seems confident on delivering its promises that it made when the phones were launched globally earlier this year.

The Nokia 5, which packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, has 2GB RAM and 16GB storage expandable to 128GB.

The phones in question - Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 arrived in Malaysia a few months ago. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with Optic AMOLED technology.
