Nokia 9, Nokia 1 (Android) Go and more expected to launch on February 25, a day ahead of MWC 2018

Nokia’s comeback story is expected to continue at this year’s Mobile World Congress. HMD Global, the company that brought Nokia back into the mobile game, has sent out media invites for an event on February 25 – a day ahead of MWC 2018.
To add fuel to the fire, Juho Sarvikas also posted a tweet saying – “Sorry for radio silence. Been super busy planning #MWC2018. Please expect it to be awesome”. While there is no concrete information as of now, Nokia is expected to announce a slew of new phones at MWC 2018 such as the Nokia 9, Nokia 1 (Android Go) and Nokia 3310 4G.
We can also expect the global launch of the Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018) and a QWERTY feature phone with the Asha brand name. The feature phone is expected to run on Nokia’s S30+ operating system. HMD Global reportedly acquired the Asha brand name from Microsoft recently.
The Nokia 9 is expected to come with the Snapdragon 835 processor, a 5.5-inch 18:9 edge-to-edge display, a 3,250mAh battery, 128GB of internal storage and ZEISS branded dual cameras on the front as well as the back. The smartphone is also expected to come with OZO Audio and Bothie – features HMD Global first introduced in the Nokia 8 in 2017.
The Nokia 1 is set to be the cheapest smartphone from HMD Global yet and is expected to run on Google’s Android Go platform, which is specifically designed for budget smartphones. As a result, the Nokia 1 is expected to come with modest specifications – possibly 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card. It is also expected to come with a 720p IPS LCD display.
The 4G variant of the Nokia 3310 feature phone is expected to run on a forked version of Android – possibly YunOS, an operating system made by the Alibaba Group that is based on the Android Open Source Project.
