  • Nokia 9

The Nokia 7 Plus stands out of the crowd with its unique ceramic-feel coating achieved through a 6-layer paint system.

HMD Global has today announced its next-generation of Nokia-branded smartphones at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The device also runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and since is an Android One build, there are no customisations on top of the stock Android onboard.

Other features include: 3,000mAh battery, USB-C and a rear fingerprint sensor. It measures 133.45 x 49.3 x 14.9 mm and weighs 117 grams. Nokia is providing an option for memory expansion for consumers who are always in the dire need for more storage space on their smartphones. The phone will be available from April 2018 and it will come with a price tag of Euro 749.

Finally, there's the Nokia 1, running the lightweight Android Go software designed for developing nations where connectivity is at a premium, and the specs aren't quite as premium. The Nokia 6 (2018) price in India has not been announced yet. The phone comes with bold copper edges contrasting with the body. Along with a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek chipset, it sports 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage with micro-SD expansion, something that standard Android Oreo might struggle on. There is a 5MP front camera as well.

A year ago at MWC, Nokia (which isn't really Nokia anymore, but HMD Global) revived it's iconic brick phone, the 3310. The phone packs in a 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display.

ZTE Blade V9 and Blade V9 VITA hands-on
Selling for €269 and €179, respectively, the Blade V9 and V9 Vita might be attractive options for the sub-€300 price range. The smartphone is also equipped with a dual rear camera setup with a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor.

Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. For the front, there is 5-megapixel selfie camera. These devices will all run a very barebones Android OS, meaning no amounts of bloatware should come preloaded on the device. This phone, from nearly 20 years ago, is now completely up to date, with 4G connectivity, a 2.4-inch colour display that runs the same software as the Nokia 3310, complete with an App Store and the Facebook app, for instance and 4GB internal storage.

It is also first Snapdragon 660 powered smartphone to launch on a global scale.

The Nokia 7 Plus is more of an interesting product.

In the camera department, the company has finally made a decision to include a setup of dual cameras, each measuring 12 megapixel.

To lure the seflie-addicts, HMD has thrown-in a 16MP front-facing camera with Zeiss optics.

Sony Xperia XZ2 design changes confirmed with new leak
With its modern design, the front side of the XZ2 will offer a larger screen-to-body ratio than any previous Xperia phone. Sony is expected to announce Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

The smartphone has 12/13MP dual rear camera with ZEISS optics and 2x optical zoom.

HMD Global, which has the global licence to make Nokia-branded phones, has launched a new flagship device, the Nokia Sirocco, which will go on sale in April.

The next handset out the blocks is a new version of the Nokia 6 handset we had a look at a year ago.

The dual camera setup on the back are 12MP lenses (same as on the Nokia 7 Plus). Well, alongside having support for simple apps (Facebook will be included at launch), you can use the banana phone as a hotspot - though the legendary battery life will presumably drop considerably from the 20 days standby if you hammer this particular feature. The display - while not the sharpest one around - is pretty decent, the buttons have good tactile feedback (they're also backlit), it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and of course, the revamped Snake game is present on the 8110. Priced at 799 euros, Nokia 8 Sirocco will start shipping in early April 2018 and should hit Indian shores at closer to Rs 65,000 mark.
