DALLAS, TEXAS (Oct. 14, 2020) — NUU Mobile, manufacturer of unlocked Android smartphones sold worldwide, has just announced the release of its latest offering to consumers, the G5. NUU Mobile’s flagship this year offers a particularly compelling combination of high-powered photography, edge-to-edge display, and massive battery, all on Android 10 – for just $199.99. However, for a limited time with the launch, it will be offered at $159.99. Additionally, NUU Mobile’s partnership with payment gateway Klarna® will allow customers to split their purchase into 4 payments of only $39.99. Finally, every G5 will include an Ultra Mobile® SIM card, featuring one month of unlimited voice, texting, and data.

The hardware highlights of the G5 are many, starting with the multiple cameras on the rear, which enable 16 megapixel high-resolution visuals, encompassing wide-angle shots, super close-up macro zoom photography, and depth-of-field bokeh portraits. Complementing these on the front is the G5’s 16 megapixel selfie camera, tucked into a punch hole in the upper-left corner of the 6.55” screen, resulting in an impressive 91% screen-to-body ratio, giving the feel of a full and immersive display.

On the software side of G5’s photography, its capabilities include AI-powered scene detection, for dynamically calibrating the camera to the subject matter; Animate GIF, to make animated stickers for use in chat and social media; Intelligent Scanner for QR and barcode reading; and Glamorize for touching up selfies, among many other features.

Beyond its impressive cameras and display, the G5 also features a remarkable 5,000 mAh battery, which, combined with a highly-efficient, power-sipping Helio A25 chipset by Mediatek, will take it from morning to evening to morning again, meaning G5 users can finally feel comfortable leaving the external USB battery packs at home.

“We’re thrilled to be releasing our latest G-series device, especially with the incredible support our fans have shown us on this series in the past,” said Matthew Smith, Marketing Director for NUU Mobile. “The G5 marks a significant shift in photographic prowess at this price point, and our new partnership with Klarna allows nearly anyone to put a G5 in their hands for less than $40, up front.”

Rounding out the G5 package is its healthy 4 gigabytes of RAM, giving it a lot of breathing room to run multiple apps smoothly, and 64 gigabytes of internal storage for holding plenty of those apps. Because the G5 is unlocked, its cellular frequencies supported within its chipset allow it to run speedily on T-Mobile and AT&T 4G-LTE networks, including any associated MVNOs using those networks, just by adding a compatible, activated SIM card in either of its Dual SIM slots.

In the midst of the quickly developing COVID-19 outbreak, the smartphone manufacturer helps with donation of internet hotspots to Texas Middle School.

DALLAS, TX  (Mar. 31, 2020) —NUU Mobile, a global manufacturer and supplier of carrier-certified and unlocked Android™ smartphones, organized an effort to support its new community headquarters in Dallas with a donation to students at J. L. Long Middle School in Dallas Independent School District.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic across the United States, schools have been forced to close to ensure the safety of teachers and students, creating unprecedented challenges in continuing the progression of education — particularly for those students now sheltering themselves in households without internet access, making it impossible to collaborate with their teachers and fellow students.

To alleviate this situation, NUU Mobile, in cooperation with Ultra Mobile, the preeminent mobile virtual network operator in the United States, offered a home internet solution to students from Long Middle School. NUU Mobile donated F4L smartphones, operating as a mobile internet hotspot for the home through a SIM card for Ultra’s mobile service, providing 100 gigabytes of data over the course of three months. 

The F4L is one of NUU Mobile’s Android Go devices, which comes in a throwback flip-phone form factor. This makes it ideal for duty as a hotspot, given its natural durability when closed, and low-power consumption. Its battery charges fully within three hours, lasts on standby for 196 hours, and four hours of talk.

The NUU Mobile F4L and Ultra SIM solution also provides each student with a dedicated phone number for any school-exclusive phone conversations that may be required during this time.
The donations coincide with Nuu Mobile’s latest promotional giveaway #NUUClassroom for students, teachers and parents to tell their story on adapting to distance learning inturn being eligible to win a NUU Mobile device.  This program runs through April 26, 2020. 

Hello friends of NUU Mobile,

First and foremost, we hope you are healthy and staying safe. We are thankful for your loyalty and care tremendously about you, the NUU Mobile team and our communities. As the COVID-19 crisis evolves, NUU Mobile is adjusting in compliance to the “Shelter in Place” order from Dallas County.

Due to recent developments regarding the evolvement of the COVID-19 crisis, we will be unable to fulfill product shipments from our facility until at least April 4th. While most of our products can be purchased and delivered through our Amazon store as normal, our main priorities are the safety and health of our consumers and the NUU Mobile team.

NUU Mobile employees based in the Dallas office will continue operations remotely and within their homes to ensure we are doing our part in flattening the curve and mitigating the spread of the Coronavirus. During this time, our phone, email and chat support will remain available to you through our website at us.nuumobile.com. While we will continue to be up and running, operations may take longer than usual, and we appreciate your patience as we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances.

We encourage friends of NUU Mobile to follow the CDC’s guidelines regarding self-quarantine efforts and consciously make socially responsible decisions to ensure the safety of our communities.

In a time when we may feel the most distant from each other, we welcome you to interact with us on social media. Share with us what your #NUUNormal is while you, too, are making adjustments in your life, whether working from home means that you have a dog as your new coworker, or if your lunch hour is spent making yourself a homecooked meal. We want to hear how you’re doing.

As always, we are grateful for you and hope we are able to return to normalcy soon.

The newest addition to the NUU Mobile portfolio introduces an aggressive value proposition for under $100, available from January 28th.

DALLAS (Jan. 28, 2019) —NUU Mobile, a global manufacturer and supplier of carrier-certified and unlocked Android™ smartphones, unveiled its new X6 phone at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and has just announced its availability starting from today. Sporting a capable 3GB of RAM, an extended screen with a 5-megapixel front camera in a water drop-style notch, dual 13-megapixel/VGA sensors on the back, and stock Android Pie, the X6 retails for only $99.99.

“Our goal with the X6 was to bring a value proposition to the market that would stand out to those in search of a modern, capable, yet uncomplicated smartphone experience, in a market of ever-increasing prices for ever-decreasing increments in performance,” said Tim Clemens, Senior Vice President at NUU Mobile. “It’s not easy, but this has always been our stand in the industry, and our development goals for 2020 will follow this philosophy.”

In addition to the specifications above, the X6 will also bring with it a 2,800 mAh battery, Mediatek’s Helio-class A22 system-on-chip, and a choice of face unlock or fingerprint reading for a balance of convenience and security. Added value comes in the form of a now-uncommon 3.5” audio jack, an SD expansion slot, and a user-removable battery.

“With phones today venturing up into four-figure territory, we’re proud to be offering the X6 at less than a tenth of that,” added Matthew Smith, NUU Mobile’s Marketing Director. “Our new brand positioning, led by the #5to9ers campaign, explores the meaning of this; we recognize that many of us out there are working beyond the norm to be better, have greater needs for what we earn, but still demand satisfaction within reason.

Compatible with GSM, LTE and WCDMA networks on most major US carriers, the X6 is unlocked and available to purchase on Amazon and NUU Mobile’s website at https://us.nuumobile.com/x6-android-smartphone/.

Finally, you can buy an affordable, dual-SIM smartphone that’s as rugged as you need it to be. The unlocked R1 rugged smartphone from NUU Mobile is certified to the highest standards and ready for anything you throw at it – or throw it at.

Whether you camp out, work construction or are just generally hard on phones, the new rugged R1 is what you’ve been looking for. Don’t worry about dropping the device, or getting it wet or dirty. The durable phone carries an IP68 rating from the International Electrotechnical Commission, the top rating available for protection against water and dust.

The military-grade R1 smartphone also provides you with 4G LTE connectivity, carries cameras front and back, and employs the Android™ Oreo™ operating system. Expanding upon NUU Mobile’s goal of providing you with high-quality technology at an affordable price, the rugged smartphone features:

The rugged phone is designed for active people who regularly expose their smartphones to the elements. If you work or play outdoors, the R1 is ready when you are. For under $150.

Certified to the Highest Standards, NUU Mobile’s R1 Phone is Ready for the Rugged Life

The brand-new R1 budget smartphone carries an IP68 certification, the highest level of ruggedness testing available to smartphones.

In controlled environment tests, the R1 successfully withstood immersion in nearly five feet of water for up to 30 minutes. That doesn’t mean you can swim with your R1, but if you drop yourphone in the lake and then snag it back quickly it won’t be ruined.

The R1 also can withstand whatever weather conditions you may find yourself in. Whether it’s freezing cold or scorching hot, it works smoothly at temperatures ranging from -22°F (-30°C) to 140°F (60°C).

The R1 has been tested against unwanted penetration by wires, screws and tools. In testing, the R1 was exposed to dust for eight hours and experienced no penetration. Specifically, the phone’s IP 68 standards feature:

The military-style testing also examined the R1 for resistance to vibration, shock and extreme temperatures. The rugged R1 phone passed all the commission’s tests with flying colors.

All the Features You Need in a Rugged Smartphone, At an Affordable Price

You can spend more than $1,000 on a ruggedized smartphone. Or you can own the R1 for a fraction of the price of the most expensive rugged phone.

The R1 smartphone measures 5.8 inches by 3 inches. It’s about ½-inch thick, with a 5-inch screen offering 1280 x 720 display resolution. The R1 features front and rear cameras, dual SIM-card capability and a full suite of Google applications. Along with Google Maps, the rugged R1 also contains sensors – such as Proximity, Accelerometer, Digital Compass – that help you travel safely in the outdoors.

The R1 is an unlocked smartphone that operates on GSM networks, such as AT&T and T-Mobile. The high-tech smartphone’s technical specs include:

Invulnerable to rain, dirt and dust, the R1 smartphone features impact-resistant glass encased in a protective rubber coating. If you’ve been waiting for a durable phone that you can actually afford, check out the new R1 from NUU Mobile.

Your NUU Mobile G3 looks nice, performs well and takes great selfies. What else can you ask for in a smartphone?

Taking great selfies takes a little effort, though. You’ll have to experiment with backgrounds, angles and filters. The important thing is your selfie looks good to you.

Please thyself! Five basic tips we like for taking better selfies include:

  1. Hold your phone vertically. Two hands or one hand, just make it steady.
  2. Use the front camera. Easier to click the button on the front than the back.
  3. Place your phone between you and the light. Natural light is the best.
  4. Shoot from above your head. Slightly above you, not way above.
  5. Try using the filters. Especially the Beauty and Portrait modes.

Your next task on the way to selfie perfection is to master your smartphone camera so you can take the best selfies. Learn which lens works best for which task. Take a series of selfies using the G3’s software filters. See anything you like?

Finally, touch up your photos before you share them with editing programs that are pre-loaded on your G3 smartphone.

Choose the Right Lens for the Right Moment

Your G3 smartphone comes equipped with powerful cameras on both the front and the back of the phone.

The front camera has an 88-degree, wide-angle lens that works great for taking long-armed selfies. The front lens takes shots at a crisp 13 MP.

There are two cameras on the back. These work together to produce portraits with a blurred background. The main rear camera shoots at 13 MP, while the secondary camera works at 5 MP.

Most of the time, you’ll use the front camera to capture your selfies.

Change from the front to the back camera, or vice versa, by tapping the camera icon. To set the timer for either camera, just hit the timer in the camera settings.

Experiment with New Camera Settings for Fresh Selfies

Change the mode of your selfie shots for better photos. Just click into the camera settings and start experimenting with these software filters that are ready to go.

Don’t like the effect? Delete the photo and try another! Your basic filter options that are pre-loaded on your G3 include:

Google Camera updates come from Google Play store, not with the regular operating system updates. To keep your smartphone up-to-date with the latest filters, you’ll need to check the store every few months or so for an update.

Edit Your Selfies to Add Those Final Touches

Your G3 is pre-loaded with a selection of editing tools. Experts say to use photo editing tools sparingly. Concentrate instead on taking solid shots that don’t need editing.

Sometimes, though, you get a great shot you want to share but it needs editing. From the Gallery, you can use the editing tools to:

Another option: Download Google Photos to your G3 to gain access to more filters and effects.

NUU Mobile specializes in high-quality, budget-friendly smartphones that meet the demands of your life. The G3 unlocked smartphone is the perfect combination of beautiful design and high-quality features, and its shimmering color instantly becomes a conversation piece every time you use it. To learn more, check it out at nuumobile.com.

Just in time for the new year, NUU Mobile recently introduced an improved G3 smartphone that features one-third more battery life than our previous model. And with our limited-time, February promotion, you can get your own G3+ and a handful of extras (a $317.88 value) for only $229.99!

The new G3+ made its recent debut in beautiful Onyx Black. With a powerful 4,000 mAh battery, the G3+ is ready when you are. Quit worrying about whether your smartphone will last throughout your fast-paced day without a recharge.

Like the beautiful G3 smartphone from NUU Mobile, the high-powered G3+ features:

Like the G3, the new unlocked G3+ works on GSM networks, including carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, MetroPCS, Mint Mobile and other carriers that operate on those networks. The phone includes dual-SIM card capability for easy international calling, as well as space for an expanded memory card (up to 128 GB). With an eight-core operating chip specially-designed for dual-camera cellphones, you’ll love the way the G3+ captures your most important moments.

Buy a New G3+, Get No-Strings-Attached Mint Mobile Service for Three Months

The powerful G3+ runs on Android Oreo 8.0, the state-of-the-art operating system from Google. BONUS: If you purchase your G3+ smartphone this month, we’ll throw in some more extras to say thanks.

For a limited time, purchase a new G3+ and you’ll get three months of network access from Mint Mobile. Worth $60, the Mint Mobile service is delivered over 4G LTE networks so you get crisp, clear conversations. Your three-month package includes unlimited text and talk, plus 5GB per month of data downloads. Unlimited calls and texts to Mexico and Canada also are free.

We’ll also send you a protective Merge smartphone case designed specifically for the G3+. Made by Tudia, the lightweight, rubberized gel silicon case offers access to all the buttons and ports on the G3+ smartphone. The case retails for $19.90. We’ll include another bonus- a NUU Mobile pop socket, at no extra cost.

That’s the deal. Buy the new G3+, featuring an extended-life battery, for just $229 this month, and for a limited time, we’ll include:

That’s a total value of more than $317, for only $229.99.

How about investing a portion of your federal tax return check in a fresh smartphone? You can buy a low-priced, unlocked smartphone from NUU Mobile – with great cameras, a powerful operating system and plenty of battery – for a lot less than you might think.

Owning your own unlocked smartphone gives you options.  With a NUU Mobile phone in your hand, you can save money by shopping for the network service deal that fits your budget best. When you have an unlocked phone, you aren’t wedded to any particular service provider.
