Nokia 5 camera update reveals names of unannounced Nokia phones


Nokia is expected to announce the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 9 in the next few weeks. The handsets have already cleared the required certifications in China. Now, a new camera update released for the Nokia 5 has revealed the names of some upcoming Nokia smartphones which are planned to be released in 2018. The .png files were referenced in the APK of the Nokia 5‘s camera update, which has apparently mentioned the unreleased Nokia 1, Nokia 4, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 9. Some of these devices have already been in the news and expected to launch soon.

Speaking about the so-called flagship Nokia 9, the smartphone is assumed to go official this month. The device is expected to ship with a 5.5-inch QHD OLED display, Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and Android 8.0 Oreo. It will replace the recently announced Nokia 8, and will offer a dual-camera setup with Carl ZEISS optics. It is expected to come packed with a 3250mAh battery and support for fast charging. If Nokia could’ve uses the newly announced Snapdragon 845 chipset, it would’ve been like a cherry on the cake for Nokia fans.

The Nokia 1 is supposed to be a mid-range smartphone from the company, which HMD Global plans to release sometime in March 2018. The smartphone is rumoured to offer a 5-inch IPS LCD display with HD resolution, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. This entry-level phone is expected to run Google’s Android Go  operating system out of the box. The handset will have a dual-SIM card slot with support for 4G LTE (with VoLTE). The specifications of the Nokia 4 and the Nokia 7 Plus still remain a mystery.

The Nokia 7 Plus will succeed the Nokia 7 with some upgraded specifications and running the latest version of Android. The supposed release of the Nokia 4 and the Nokia 7 Plus are unknown at the point in time, but we expect to get more details about these devices from their certification listings as the launch nears.
