HMD Global is rumoured to launch two new Nokia branded Android smartphones. Dubbed Nokia 7 and Nokia 8, the two handsets could pack a more powerful set of specifications than the recently launched Nokia 6.
According to a report by NokiaPowerUser website, the two handsets will fall in the mid-range segment.
It's been reported that the rumoured Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 will sport Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 processor. One could come with a Full HD (1080x1920 pixel) resolution display, while the other could pack a Quad HD (1440x2560 pixel) resolution panel. The Full HD version is expected to have a smaller display.
The report further adds that the duo will sport a new metallic body, with thinner bezels and unibody frame. The camera design will also be different. Furthermore, the rumoured Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 are likely to support fast charging technology, along with fingerprint scanner and better camera sensor(s). In particular, the Nokia 8 is claimed to come with Carl-Zeiss optics. However, this is unlikely in light of a recent tweet by Nokia, in which the company said it won't be using Carl Zeiss optics in its smartphones.
HMD Global is planning to launch a few more smartphones, later this year. The company has already launched Nokia 3 , Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 .
According to a recent report, Nokia will launch its flagship smartphone in two variants, just like companies like Apple, Google and Samsung have been doing for quite a while. Both are expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC but have different RAM sizes - 4GB and 6GB.
The duo is likely to sport metal unibody and the more powerful variant is additionally expected to come with dual-rear cameras, probably including a 23MP sensor.
As for the price, the more powerful variant could be priced at CNY 4,500 (roughly Rs 43,400), while its smaller sibling will cost around CNY 4,000 (roughly Rs 38,600).
