At the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month, HMD Global is expected to launch a range of Nokia-branded devices. The expected list of devices include Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018), and Nokia 8 Sirocco.
While the devices will get announced later this month, they won’t be launched in the Indian market soon. A report suggests that the Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 8 Sirocco will make their way to the Indian market in the month of April.
The report further adds that along with these three devices, the company could also launched a couple of more devices in the Indian market. However, HMD Global has not yet confirmed any of these devices for the MWC 2018 launch.
The Nokia 1 could be the company’s most affordable smartphone and is expected to be the part of Google’s Android Go program. The Android Oreo Go edition has been optimized to support hardware with low-end specifications without compromising on user experience.
According to the previous reports, the Nokia 1 is expected to come with an HD IPS LCD display and run either Qualcomm or MediaTek processor along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The device is expected to be priced around Rs. 6,500 in the Indian market.
At the upcoming MWC in Barcelona, the company is expected to announce Nokia 6 (2018) globally, which is already available in China. This second-generation Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD LCD display with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It sits well protected under 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and packs 4GB RAM with 32GB/64GB of internal storage. At the back, there’s a dual-LED enabled 16-megapixel camera and an 8-megapixel 84-degree wide-angle front-facing snapper.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco, which is also referred as Nokia 9, is expected to be the premium offering from the company. It is believed to be a high-end phone running the latest Snapdragon 845 processor. It is likely to feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD OLED display with 3D glass on top.
Reports suggests that the device will pack dual ZEISS-certified cameras at the back, having a combination of 12-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel sensor. On the front, there will be a 5-megapixel selfie camera. As per the reports, the device is expected to arrive with IP67 certification for dust and water resistance.
As said, the company has not yet confirmed any of these devices for the MWC 2018 launch. We’ll have to wait till the official Nokia event at Mobile World Congress later this year to know for sure which devices are being launched by the HMD Global.
