The firm is working on a new Nokia 7 + smartphone, a sequel to its older Nokia 7 handset released earlier in 2017, as well as a low-end Nokia 1. Thanks to prolific smartphone leaker Evan Blass, we've got an early look at the devices.
The Nokia 7+ will have a near full-screen 18:9 display equipped with a resolution of 2160 X 1080 with a Snapdragon 660, 4GB o RAM and 64GB of storage. It'll ship with either a white or black aluminium chassis with copper coloured highlights around the fingerprint sensor and camera lens.
HMD will also equip this device with a dual camera module, rumoured to be a pair of 12MP + 13MP lens. The front camera will be a Zeiss 16 MP lens. HMD will round out these specs with a micro-SD slot and USB-Type C with Quick Charge,
The Nokia 1 is the other handset to be debuted, It does not have an Android one marker, nor is it expected to be as full-featured as the Nokia 7+. It'll come in red and blue at the very least, and sports a camera with an LED flash (non-Zeiss branded). It'll run on Android Oreo (Go edition). It won't take the world by storm, but it'll scratch the low-end itch for customers of modest means.
HMD has made a dent in the market by following the older Nokia's strategy of making numbered phones for each segment of the market. The smartphone maker is expected to debut a new Nokia 9 flagship smartphone this year as well. Nokia is expected to reveal more about these devices at MWC later this year.
