Let’s do a quick recap

As we count the days before Mobile World Congress 2018 (we will be there to cover the latest happenings), we expect the big brands to unveil a plethora of devices. We already have a rough idea of what ASUS has in store, and we expect Samsung to get a big chunk of the spotlight with the Galaxy S9 and S9+. This time, let’s talk about Nokia.

After the brand has made its return last year thanks to HMD Global, Nokia has been enjoying a fair share of success with models like the Nokia 3310 Classic and the Nokia 8. HMD Global was serious in saying that 2018 will be a big year for Nokia, and we really, really hope that they stay true to their claims.

Let’s round up all the rumors and leaks we know about Nokia:

The Nokia 6 (2018) will have its global launch

An update from the Nokia 6 (2017), the 2018 version gets a few upgrades such as a Snapdragon 630 processor, OZO audio, and bothie mode (a feature from the Nokia 8). What makes the 2018 version interesting is its pricing: Assuming that the global version has the same pricing as the China version, the Nokia 6 (2018) will have a very competitive price that can rival similarly-priced and similarly-specced handsets from Huawei and Xiaomi.

The Nokia 7 Plus will be the brand’s first Android One phone

The Nokia 7 Plus is more than an upgrade from the China-only Nokia 7: Aside from a beefier Snapdragon 660 processor, 18:9 display, and dual Zeiss rear cameras, the Nokia 7 Plus will be Nokia’s first offering under the Android One program. This means that the Nokia 7 Plus will have an unadulterated version of Android Oreo, and is guaranteed to have at least two major updates.

The Nokia 1 will be their first Android Go phone

On the entry-level side, Nokia is slated to launch the Nokia 1, which sports rather ordinary specs 8GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, a single rear camera with LED flash, a conventional 16:9 display, and a removable battery. What makes this model interesting is that it will be an Android Go phone, which means that it will come with a lighter and optimized version of Android Oreo. On top of that, recent leaks of the Nokia 1 would remind Nokia fans of Lumia phones from the past. After all,

The Nokia 9 will be their first phone with a curved display

On the other side of the spectrum, Nokia is slated to launch the Nokia 9, which is the brand’s first phone to have a curved display. While it will have the same Snapdragon 835 processor as with the Nokia 8, the Nokia 9 gets a few upgrades with its 5.5-inch OLED curved display, IP68 rating, 6GB RAM, and quad-camera setup. According to previous GeekBench benchmarks, the Nokia 9 is a viable competitor against the OnePlus 5T.

There’s a Nokia 4 in the works

A few days ago, there were reports that a Nokia 4 is currently in the works. While there are vague details about this phone, reports say that this will sport a Snapdragon 450 processor, which indicates that it will be an entry mid-range model from Nokia.
