HMD Global has sent out invites for a launch event that will be held on Oct. 19 in China. Apart from a few features of the mysterious smartphone, the invitation does not reveal any information on it.

According to the invitation, the smartphone that will be unveiled on Thursday will be available for buying exclusively through Tmall. The new smartphone will support dual-sight Bothie feature. Also, the shadow of the OZO camera can be seen in accompanying images.

HMD Global had launched Nokia 8 smartphone first in China. However, the country did not receive the enhanced variants of Nokia 8 that have been made available in other markets. Hence, speculations are rife that HMD Global may introduce Nokia 8 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage that has been released in the select regions of Europe but not yet available in China.

The animated GIF present on the official TMall store teases a phone with Bothie feature on its screen. The design of the smartphone suggests that the mysterious device does not feature slim bezels like the Nokia 8. The same GIF carries “qi” which refers to number 7 in Chinese. Hence, the rumor mill may announce the Nokia 7 phone. Interestingly, two new HMD Global smartphones with model numbers TA-1041 and TA-1042 had received 3C approval in China.  Like the Nokia 8, the alleged Nokia 7 may come with features like Bothie and OZO audio.
