Nokia 3310 Durability Test Sees It Struggle to Handle Scratches, Burns

The original Nokia 3310 was well known for its durability and if you have been following Internet memes over the past decade, you would know this by now. However, as it turns out, the new Nokia 3310 doesn’t seem to match up to its competition in terms of scratch resistance as well as build quality thanks to the use of plastic screen and body on the handset.

In a test video posted by channel named VoloKin Project on YouTube, the Nokia 3310 (2017) offered little resistance against scratches when the tester tried to use a level 5 knife, which doesn’t scratch modern flagships including Samsung Galaxy S8. Due to the presence of plastic screen and body, the new feature phone from Nokia fell victim to permanent scratches even with keys that are likely to be placed in users’ pocket often times.

Not only did the camera lens scratch easily with the knife used in test but the entire camera panel popped out fairly easily on applying some pressure with the knife on the sides, as can be seen in the video embedded above. While it was expected due to presence of plastic screen, the phone’s front got burned rather easily in the burn test and produced irreversible marks at the front of display.

The only solace that the new Nokia 3310 got from entire routine was from the bend test. While the tester seemingly applied all the force at his disposal, he couldn’t bend the phone with his bare hands. While the phone’s body popped out a little in the bend test, it was easily fixed by merely pressing the phone from both ends at once.

Although the durability offered by the original Nokia 3310 is a stuff of legends, it seems like the smartphones are now moving in the right direction with the use of glass and metal instead of plastic to enhance the build quality. Nobody likes their phone all scratched up and if this is a concern for you, you might want to think twice before buying the revamped Nokia 3310 despite it costing just Rs. 3310 in India.

To recall, the Nokia 3310 (2017) was launched in India last month. If you want to get in-depth information about its performance, you might want to check out our review of the feature phone.

 

WhatsApp Extends Support for BlackBerry, Nokia S40 Platforms: Reports

WhatsApp has become an essential messaging app amongst all kinds of mobile users irrespective of the operating system their devices run on. In February last year, Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced to end support for BlackBerry OS and Nokia S40 platforms, which got pushed back to June this year. It seems that the end-of-life date has been pushed back yet again, as the company has reportedly confirmed the extension of its services for BlackBerry and Nokia S40 platforms till December 2017 and December 2018 respectively.

As per a report by Netherlands-based fan website WhatsAppen, the WhatsApp apps for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS7+ received an update on Monday that extends support for the platforms until December 31, 2017. According to the website, the changelog of the update, seen on devices, states “changed client end-of-life date to December 31, 2017”. This means that WhatsApp users on eligible BlackBerry devices will be continue sending and receiving messages, calls till the end of the year.

WhatsApp Extends Support for BlackBerry, Nokia S40 Platforms: Reports

In addition, the Nokia S40 platform has reportedly got an extension for WhatsApp support till December 31, 2018 – however, this date may be a typographical error. Spotted by WhatsApp watcher WABetaInfo, the end-of-life date has been moved from December 31, 2017 to December 31, 2018. There are a limited number of customers who use the Nokia S40 platform nowadays, but it will still bring relief to those who still carry the dated devices. However, Nokia Symbian S60 users don’t have much time on their hands as WhatsApp will end its support on the platform on June 30 this year.

If the reports are true, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS7+, and Nokia S40 users still have ample time to access WhatsApp on their platforms. However, the Nokia Symbian S60 devices will cease to support WhatsApp and if you need your chat backed up, you can make a request to get the backup in an email from the company. Notably, there is no option on Nokia S40 and Symbian S60 devices to backup chats.

 

Nokia 9 Won’t Sport a 4GB RAM Variant, Tips US FCC Listing: Report

There have been reports making the rounds of the Internet claiming that HMD Global will be launching its Nokia 9 flagship smartphone later this year. We have stumbled upon Nokia 9 FCC listing as well as GeekBench listing in the past, revealing some tidbits about the device. Now, a new report has claimed that HMD Global may ditch 4GB RAM model that has been previously spotted in favour of a higher RAM model.

NokiaMob.net has come across a US FCC document that suggests HMD Global, the company that owns the right to Nokia brand, has requested to transfer all “test results and permits” from the TA-1004 model, possibly the Nokia 9 variant with 4GB RAM, to TA-1012, which is likely a 6GB RAM model of the phone. The document further reveals that the company plans to market the earlier certified TA-1004 as TA-1012. HMD Global stresses that there has been no change that will affect the test results of FCC tipping that the company just changed the memory on the said device.

Nokia 9 Won't Sport a 4GB RAM Variant, Tips US FCC Listing: Report

The preliminary leaks have claimed that Nokia 9 may sport 6GB of RAM, or 8GB of RAM based on two separate GeekBench listings – it’s possible two variants may be launched.

As far as other specifications are concerned, the Nokia 9 flagship smartphone is said to feature a 5.5-inch QHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, dual 13-megapixel cameras at the back, and also have a dual-LED flash support as well. The device is also said to come with a 13-megapixel front camera as well and pack 64GB of inbuilt storage with no clarity on external storage support. There has been no word on the battery capacity on the handset but it is said to support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0.

Unfortunately, there is no word when HMD Global plans to launch the Nokia 9, and the first markets where the phone will go on sale.

Image result for Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 India Launch, BSNL 444 Plan, OnePlus Leaks, and More News This Week

Welcome back to our weekly roundup of news from the world of technology. This week, the focus of attention was Nokia, as the brand made its way back to India. HMD Global, the custodians of the Nokia brand, three phones – the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 – which are all Android phones. At the time of the launch, the company confirmed that only the Nokia 3 would go on sale in June. Well, the offline-exclusive Nokia 3 is now available at your neighbourhood retail store, a fact that Gadgets 360 has been able to confirm. Nokia 3 is the most affordable of the three new Nokia Android smartphones by HMD Global, having been priced in India at Rs. 9,499. It has a 5-inch HD display, Android 7.0 Nougat, a 1.3GHz quad core processor, 16GB of storage, and 2GB of RAM.

The price in India of Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 is Rs. 12,899 and Rs. 14,899 respectively, and they will go up for bookings/ pre-order next month. The Nokia 5 has a 5.2.-inch display, is powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC, with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, and a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera. The Nokia 6 on the other hand has a Snapdragon 430 SoC with 3GB RAM, and 32GB of storage, along with a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.

The OnePlus 5 is going to launch next week – globally, followed by the India launch – and the leaks and official buildup continued this week. A teaser confirmed a refreshed OxygenOS is coming with the OnePlus 5, complete with the addition of a blue light filter. You’ll have a slider to make the display cooler or warmer. OnePlus has so far confirmed that the OnePlus 5’s rear camera will be capable of bokeh effect as well. The price, specifications, and images of the phone were also leaked yet again. With the latest leak, the price for OnePlus 5 has been tipped to start from $479 (roughly Rs. 30,800). The smartphone is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD display, and two RAM variants – 6GB and 8GB.

The global unveiling of the smartphone is scheduled for June 20, while a separate OnePlus 5 India launch will happen on June 22. The registrations for the phone have started in China and are already attracting huge numbers, and after the India launch, expect OnePlus 5 pop-up events in Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Chennai. A limited number of OnePlus 5 units will be available for sale at these events, and anyone can enter to buy the phone.

Meanwhile, the Reliance Jio effect continues unabated, as rival telcos have no choice but to drop prices to remain an attractive option. BSNL unveiled a new plan under which it is offering 360GB data for Rs. 444, for prepaid users. The BSNL 444 plan has a 90 day validity, and you can use up to 4GB of 3G data per day, which means you get up to 360GB of data, for an effective price of Rs. 1.23 per GB. No calling benefits are included with the BSNL 444 plans.

Idea rolled out a new plan offering 70GB data for Rs. 396, with a limit of 1GB per day for 70 days. Customers who use this pack will also get free Idea-to-Idea calls. And Reliance Communications (RCom) is also offering a 28 percent discount on select postpaid plans for 1 year. It is offering 30GB with unlimited calls for Rs. 499, or at Rs. 333 with 1000 minutes of talktime.

The telecom subscriber base crossed 1,198 million in April, according to TRAI, helped along by Jio, but the company saw its slowest subscriber growth in April. Jio now has 112.55 million users, but added only 3.87 million in April – a far cry from the 19.6 million it added in October. Plus, TRAI says that telcos have asked it to fix a minimum price for calls and data, which could end the free calls and chap data plans we’ve gotten used to since Jio launched.

The Moto brand also managed to stay in the news this week thanks to its launches. After a series of leaks, Lenovo finally made the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus smartphones official in US and other countries. The Moto E4 is priced at $129.99 (roughly Rs. 8,300) while the Moto E4 Plus starts at $179.99 (roughly Rs. 11,600). Design wise, both the smartphones sport a metal back with a circular camera frame and antenna lines. The Moto E4 has a 5-inch HD display, a 1.4GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, along with 16GB of storage. The Moto E4 Plus has a 5.5-inch HD display, and an additional 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant as well. Also, while the Moto E4 has an 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera combination, the Moto E4 Plus has a 13-megapixel camera in the rear.

In India, the Moto Z2 Play went on sale this week, via both Flipkart and offline channels. The phone is priced at Rs. 27,999, and was launched in India last week. The Moto Z2 Play supports Moto Mods and was quick and responsive when we tried it out. Aside from that the Moto C Plus is set to launch on Monday in India, and will be available via Flipkart right away. The Moto C Plus is aimed at first-time smartphone buyers, and packs a 4000mAh battery. It also has a 5-inch HD display, with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, and either 1GB or 2GB RAM, along with 16GB of inbuilt storage.

Samsung got in on the act as well, and launched two new phones this week in India. Samsung unveiled two new ‘J’ series smartphones, the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro, at an event in New Delhi. Both sport a slim metal unibody design with no bezel on the left and right edges of the smartphone. The Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro are priced at Rs. 17,900 and Rs. 20,900 respectively, and will be available offline, and on Samsung’s online store, from June 20 and mid-July respectively.

Along with the two phones, the Korean company also launched Samsung Pay Mini. Samsung Pay Mini is a new form of payments via the phone, supporting the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), along with mobile wallets. Unlike Samsung Pay, the “Mini” version does not support the “tap and pay” capability with which you can pay offline from your saved debit or credit cards.

The HTC U11 “squeezable smartphone” was launched in India priced at RS. 51,990. Its standout feature is the “Edge Sense” that lets you access different functions by simply squeezing the sides of the phone. It will be available via Amazon and offline from the last week of June. The phone sports a 5.5-inch quad-HD display, powered by a 2.45GHz quad core Snapdragon 835 SoC, and the India variant gets 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

The Alcatel A3 10 tablet with 4G and voice calling was launched this week at Rs. 9,999; it features a 10.1-inch display, and is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM. We also saw the launch of the Intex Elyt E7 priced at Rs. 7,999. The phone has a 4020mAh battery, and comes with a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Sennheiser launched the Momentum in-ear wireless exercise headphones at Rs. 14,999. The Bluetooth headphones use NFC for pairing, and claim a 10-hour battery life. Another interesting launch in India was the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 instant camera. The camera will set you back by Rs. 5,999 and gives you an instant print of a 62x46mm photo. It’s a basic instant camera that’s best used for close up photos.

Google’s Daydream View VR headset is now available in India priced at Rs. 6,499. The VR headset has been listed on Flipkart and will include the controller as well. The Daydream View VR headset functions along the lines of Samsung’s Gear VR and you will need Daydream-supported smartphones – which is limited to the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, and Moto Z, for now.

Intel announced this week that it will be investing Rs. 1,100 crores ($170 million) in India, on a new R&D centre in Bengaluru which will generate 3,000 jobs. The fresh investment is in addition to $2 billion (roughly Rs. 12,852 crores) the chip maker had invested in the country till 2016.

Meanwhile, although there are rumours that Amazon is looking to acquire BigBasket in India, in the US, it made a huge move into the groceries market – acquiring US grocer Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Does this signal a larger interest in the space, and make the BigBasket rumours more likely? We’ll likely know more soon.

And in a move that’s probably meant to reduce its dependence on Flipkart and Amazon by encouraging people to shop more on its store, Xiaomi India has announced a “Reward Mi” programme that will offer discounts, and early access to certain products to loyal customers.

WhatsApp Will Stop Working on Nokia Symbian, BlackBerry OS Phones on June 30

WhatsApp users still on handsets running the ageing BlackBerry OS and Nokia S40 and S60 platforms will not be able to use the popular messaging service after June 30. The Facebook-owned company will officially pull the plug on the dated Nokia Symbian software and the BlackBerry OS as July starts. This comes after WhatsApp delayed ending support for them by six months, from the original date of December 2016 to June 2017. The reason behind WhatsApp killing support for old Nokia and BlackBerry phones is that they don’t have the capabilities needed to add new features in the app.

The most widely used instant messaging app had last year announced that it will drop support for a few platforms. The company later extended the support until June 2017 after BlackBerry expressed its disappointment with WhatsApp’s decision to abandon the platform. Support for Android 2.2 Froyo, iOS 6, and Windows Phone 7 was ended by WhatsApp in December last year.

In its Support page, WhatsApp explains, “These platforms [Nokia S40, S60, and BlackBerry OS] don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer OS version, or to a newer Android running OS 2.3.3+, iPhone running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8+ so that you can continue using WhatsApp.”

WhatsApp Will Stop Working on Nokia Symbian, BlackBerry OS Phones on June 30
Interestingly, the lack of support for the old Nokia Symbian phones is the reason WhatsApp will not work on the new Nokia 3310 feature phone. The Facebook-owned company has advised that anyone with the above-mentioned older platforms who want to keep chatting with friends via WhatsApp will need to upgrade to a newer operating system or a new device.

WhatsApp also clarifies that currently there’s no way users can transfer your chat history between platforms though the company will provide the option to send your chat history attached to an email, if requested by users. You can head to WhatsApp’s Support page to understand the steps.

WhatsApp had previously emphasised how much the market changed in the years since WhatsApp was launched in 2009. Recapping the market, the messaging service said that in 2009 Android and iOS platforms were running on less than 25 percent of the devices, while BlackBerry and Nokia’s operating systems dominated the market with roughly a 70 percent share. WhatsApp’s decision to pull the plug on Symbian and BlackBerry, however, recaps how the platforms have lost popularity.
