Nokia already launched a series of handsets this year, namely the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8. Recently, rumors surfaced regarding the Nokia 2, and HMD Global also announced the Nokia 7. The Nokia 9 is also reportedly on its way, however, we don’t have a launch date for it yet. Rumor has it that the Nokia flagship will only launch in early 2018. According to reports, it will have a truly modern design and high-end specs to impress users with. Also, it seems that the Nokia 9 will be the most expensive model of them all.
The recently announced Nokia 7 is a mid-range handset with a solid glass and aluminum build and slim side bezels. On the back, users will find the fingerprint sensor just beneath the primary camera and its flashlight. On the front, the physical home button vanished, leaving only a rather thick bezel on the bottom. Just like the Nokia 8, the Nokia 7 has a slightly rounded back, making it more comfortable to use and to hold. The 5.2-inch handset is smaller than the Nokia 8, however, the difference is not really noticeable. The handset’s display offers a Full HD resolution, ensuring a nice visual experience.
The handset sports the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, paired with an Adreno 508 GPU and 4GB or even 6GB of RAM. As for the internal storage, there is 64GB and a 128GB version. Thankfully, the handset also features a microSD card slot, so users can further expand the storage by up to 256GB. The smartphone really impresses with its rear camera. Just like the other 2017 Nokia handsets, it is a Carl Zeiss Optics lens, in this case, a 16MP one. On the front, users will find a 5MP selfie snapper. The 3,000mAh battery supports fast charging, and the smartphone offers Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. The Nokia 7 will reportedly become available starting October 24 with a price tag close to $400.
The Nokia 2 seems to be the next model in line to launch. Unlike the Nokia 7, the Nokia 2 will be a budget phone with entry-level specs. The handset will have a 4.7-inch 720p display and a rather dated design with thick bezels on all sides. The smartphone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset and it will only include 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage. It’s not quite clear yet whether HMD Global will equip the smartphone with a microSD card slot or not. Hopefully, it will. The cameras of the handset won’t be really impressive either. The Nokia 2 will reportedly sport an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP sensor for selfies and video calls. One nice surprise is the huge, 4,000mAh battery which will definitely ensure an amazing battery life. Normally, the Nokia 2 will be quite affordable. It will most likely cost somewhere around $100- $120. It will reportedly launch in November.
The Nokia 4 is the only one missing in action. It’s unclear why HMD Global skipped this number and whether there will ever be a model 4 or not. Even so, the company managed to deliver some really nice and reliable handsets this year. Nokia might be slowly but surely coming back to the smartphone market.
