Week 49 In Review: Nokia C1 Renders And A Samsung Galaxy A-series Overhaul

By 12:54 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments

Nokia was No. 1 in the mobile world for a couple of decades, and it's being sadly missed today by loyal fans of the brand. It's then not a surprise that when alleged renders of a Nokia C1 surfaced this week, the Internet exploded.

The company's reentry into the smartphone business can't come before 2016, as dictated by the Microsoft acquisition agreement. But we're nearly there, and the Nokia C1 might very well be the real thing.

Moving from future to present, Samsung announced the successors to three of its Galaxy A-series smartphones this week. The Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016) come with updated glass and metal styling, upgraded specs and fingerprint readers in all but the smallest model. We're now only left to see what the Galaxy A9 will have to offer.

Another piece of news with a tangible outcome, the Asus Zenfone Zoom with a 3x optical zoom lens is finally out. Well, not yet, but in a few weeks' time. And not globally, but just in Taiwan. Oh, well.

In other news, the one-generation-away Snapdragon 830 may come with support for up to 8GB of RAM, Samsung's Marshmallow build for the Galaxy S6 leaked in screenshots and Vivo announced the X6 and X6 Plus. Read these and more in the links below.
