HMD Global has grabbed a good position in the market with the Nokia-branded phones. It was recently revealed that the company managed to sell over 4 million smartphones in the fourth quarter of the last year. Eventually, this has pushed HMD to a good position in the smartphone arena that it is in plans to release new smartphones this year.
Lately, HMD Global sent out media invites for a press event to happen on February 25 at the MWC 2018 tech show in Barcelona. At the event, the company is expected to unveil its flagship Nokia 9 aka Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone. In addition to it, we can expect the global variants of the Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7 and Nokia 3310 4G models as well.
Since the past few weeks, we have been hearing about two more smartphones - the Nokia 7 Plus with a full-screen design and the Nokia 1 smartphones as well. HMD is yet to come up with a confirmation regarding the existence of these smartphones but their alleged photos have been leaked by Evan Blass @evleaks.
