By any measure, Mobile World Congress was a good show for Nokia. The company announced several new phones including the revamped Nokia 6, the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But it appears that the HMD Global owned brand is far from done for 2018. According to an exclusive at Nokia Power User, the company plans to launch two more devices this year: The Nokia 8 Pro and Nokia 9.
First is the Nokia 8 Pro. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 845, have a rotating zoom lens, and will feature a double-glass (front and back) design. It will also be an 18:9 ratio device with a 5.5″ display. Looking at the design concepts, this device harkens back to Nokia devices when they were making Windows Phone based phones.
As for the Nokia 9, you can expect this to be the flagship device and it will have a hefty price tag. This 5.7″ device will have an in-glass fingerprint scanner, a further improved camera over the 8 Pro, and will also be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC. As for pricing, expect it to be in the same range as the new Samsung Galaxy S9+.
According to Nokia Power User, these two new phones will likely be announced in August and likely be available in September. As always with Nokia, it isn’t 100% clear if these devices will make it to the United States. We know that the new Nokia 6 will be coming to the country but it is unclear on the others just yet.
