The Finnish smartphone maker, HMD Global, which develops and sells Nokia-branded phones under a trademark license from the company, has unveiled three new entry-level smartphone models with Cricket Wireless in the United States.

The devices will be available for sale from the local operator Cricket Wireless starting May 29. Previously, HMD Global had released two Nokia 4G smartphones, which were also exclusive to Cricket Wireless. Long-term cooperation established by the two parties allows for new choices to the consumers.

Nokia C5 Endi Features and Specifications

Having the best specifications among the three models, the Nokia C5 Endi uses a design similar to the Nokia 5.3, both from the shape of the rear camera and the use of waterdrop notch on the front side. The smartphone has a thick lower bezel, and its body has a unibody polycarbonate plastic build.

The screen is quite large at 6.5 inches with HD+ resolution and has an 8MP front camera. While the rear camera has three sensors, with a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a depth sensor. The Nokia C5 Endi can also take several photos at a time, and provide the best photo recommendations afterward.

The smartphone uses the MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor, with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia C5 Endi packs a 4,000mAh battery and can last for two days, as per the company claims. Unlike the Nokia C2, the Nokia C5 Endi features a fingerprint sensor.

Nokia C2-series Features and Specifications

The Nokia C2 Tennen is similar in features to the Nokia C2 Tava. The only difference between them is the color (gray for the Nokia C2 Tennen and blue for the Nokia C2 Tava). Interestingly, the Nokia C2 Tennen is cheaper than the C2 Tava and will go on sale later in Mid-June.

The Nokia C2-series flaunts a 5.45-inch HD+ display, dual-rear cameras (8-megapixel primary camera, and 2-megapixel depth camera), and 5-megapixel front camera. It also has a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory. The device features a USB-C port and a 3.5 mm audio jack with a 3,000mAh battery.

The Nokia C2 Tava has a price of $109.99 (Rs. 8,400 approximately), and the Nokia C2 Tennen costs $69.99 (Rs. 5,300 almost). While the Nokia C5 Endi will be available from June 5 at $169.99 (around Rs. 12,900). It is unclear why there is such a big price difference between the Nokia C2 Tava and Tennen that offers the same features.

Roposo gains 22 million users in 2 days after TikTok ban; Mitron, Chingari also see rise in downloads

Published

With popular short video-making app TikTok down in India, rival apps have lately been all the rage in the country. After a border clash with the neighboring country China went on to eventually generate an anti-China sentiment across the nation, a total of 59 Chinese apps were banned in India at once over security concerns, including TikTok. Now rival apps including Mitron, Chingari, and Roposo are rising up in download numbers.

TikTok had 200 million users in India. After the ban came into effect, all these users were suddenly left with no content to post or view content off. A lack of options led to alternate short video-making apps becoming popular in the country.

One of the alternatives, Roposo, which has existed since 2014, saw its user-base jump up by 22 million in just two days after the app was taken down. “In the last few days I’ve slept for a total of five hours, and it’s the same for our entire team,” Bhangadia said. “The load is so much and we’re just ensuring that the experience is as smooth as possible,” said Mayank Bhangadia, Roposo founder in a report by Reuters.

Roposo now has over 80 million downloads on Android. As per Bhangadia, this figure may cross 100 million in a few more days. Roposo had about 50 million downloads before TikTok was taken down, which is still a considerable share amidst the 500 million smartphones in India.

The Bengaluru-based company is run by about 200 people but plans on going international over the next two years. It will also reportedly be hiring an additional 10,000 people in this time frame for the same. Meanwhile, other rival apps like Mitron and Chingari are riding over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Atma-Nirbhar’ wave and enjoying popularity. These apps too have seen a rise in user-base after the TikTok ban.

Huawei files patent for smartphone design with an attachable zoom lens

Published

By

Huawei seems eager to stay at the top of DxOMark’s ranking of the best smartphone cameras. Despite the difficulties that the company has faced lately, it does not want to give up its dominance in the field of photography. For this, the Chinese tech giant has now patented a smartphone design with an attachable external zoom lens at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

Huawei’s bet on Traditional Zoom lens camera

While several manufacturers include the periscopic zoom system that Huawei used back in the Huawei P30 Pro, it appears that the Chinese giant is taking a step forward (or backward) with a new old zoom system. Although the patent’s exact details were not explained initially. It does showcase a smartphone an external lens at the back. Something very similar to what is already possible on DSLR cameras.

Unfortunately, there are no details on the operation of the system by Huawei, but the following images perfectly convey the idea of ​​what users could have at their disposal. It’s hard to imagine how Huawei could improve this. But advancements in zoom capabilities are among the most prominent areas where things can improve. And there are two possible ways for Huawei to implement something similar to what is shown in its patent.

The first is through an accessory. But we have already seen those reaching the market and being practically abandoned by users. The other would be to include a mechanism inside the smartphone itself. That protrudes outwards when zooming, and this may be the ideal solution as per the patent images.
