Another surprise this year is Nokia's resurgence.
Though the press invite doesn't reveal any clear information about the upcoming Nokia smartphones or which specific smartphone will launch at the event, it is likely to be the HMD Global's freshly launched Nokia 7 smartphone. At the back of the packaging, the features of the device are printed there. The Nokia 9 is also reportedly on its way, however, we don't have a launch date for it yet. It features narrow bezels on the side but the top and bottom bezels are prominent.
In the imagining front, Nokia 7 supports Bothie feature.
The Nokia 7 was priced at 2,499 Yuan ($377/Rs 24,538 approx) in China for the base 4GB RAM variant and 2,699 Yuan ($407/Rs 26,500 approx) for 6GB RAM. After that, the rumor mill's attention turned towards the Note 8, iPhone 8/X and Google's Pixel 2.
We sighted the Nokia 2 over a month ago.
Perhaps more importantly, the revised, 3G-enabled Nokia 3310 can now be used around the world, including in markets where 2G connectivity is basically extinct. Another noteworthy feature of the Nokia 7 is its glass body design, which is a first from HMD Global's Nokia portfolio. However, there's no circular cutout to the main camera cutout as in the image above. On the back, users will find the fingerprint sensor just beneath the primary camera and its flashlight.
Today's leak also corroborates earlier details shared by Onleaks.
After receiving unimaginable demand in China, the first market to receive an Android-powered Nokia phone, the Finnish company decided to make the phone available to the rest of the world courtesy of the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona. We will be covering the event live, hence stay tuned for that. Do watch out for a comprehensive review of Nokia's latest mid-range smartphone by Linus here on Gizmochina.
