HMD may introduce the very low-cost, entry-level smartphone that will run Android Go (or Android Oreo – Go Edition). Considering the price of already launched Nokia 2, the phone in subject may cost even lower than $100. This phone will sure target the emerging markets.
Next-Gen Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6
These are three devices HMD announced as their initial smartphones under Nokia brand last year. The company is supposedly bringing the refreshed versions of these three phones this year at MWC 2018. If launched, the phones will sure have improved hardware components and design with no doubt, or there will be no reason to re-launch.
Specifically the Nokia 6 2018 (aka Nokia 6 2nd-gen) has been officially launched in China. It’s the phone that has most chances to be launched globally at MWC 2018 with another suggested name as Nokia 6.1.
Nokia 7 is another phone that was officially announced in October last year only in China. So you can easily assume that HMD may have plans to launch it globally at the mega phone show this month. The phone has many similarities from within with the Nokia 6 2018 leaving the build and design at some distinction.
Nokia 7 Plus
Nokia 7 Plus is also in rumors to get through this year’s MWC 2018. It’s the phone that has leaked with most of the details yet such as Aluminium unibody. Dual-color accents like Nokia 6 2018 above, 6-inch and 18:9 resolution display with Gorilla Glass, Android One (based on Oreo). Snapdragon 660 CPU and Adreno 512 GPU with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The phone will have dual-camera with Zeiss optics – 12MP + 13MP with 2x optical zoom. Front camera will carry 16MP sensor also with Zeiss optics and Tetracell technology. Not to mention the USB Type-C connectivity. So hold tight!
Expect a flagship phone because that’s a must from HMD to keep things in align with competition. Nokia 9 has a good chance to get unveiled by the company. According to rumors and speculations, the phone may have narrow bezel design with high display and trending aspect ratio of 18:9. Standing at high-end capacity the phone may equip with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As a surprising factor, HMD may go with waving off the traditional 3.5mm audio jack and may give the option of wireless headsets in addition to USB Type-C audio adapter.
Considering the “awesome” something from the company’s product chief, you may expect really something standing among the products like Galaxy S9 from Samsung. So keep yourself tight and wait for the day as it’s up there.
