HMD Global to bring back Nokia X! To Launch in April 27th?

Published

on

Nokia X was the first ever smartphone Nokia tried with Android when they realized the fact that their Windows Phone devices are not doing good in the market. The irony is that the Nokia X did not even feel like an Android Phone. It was the failed attempt of the giant smartphone maker to capture the smartphone market.

Despite all these, HMD Global is planning to bring back the device from the past. Billboards have been spotted which shows two phones crossed against each other to form an X shape. Take a look at the image below.

The image hints at few major design aspects. The most notable ones are the presence of a 2.5D curved display and a metal back with curved corners. Till now, there have been no leaks regarding the device. We are not sure if the company has plans to launch the device as a flagship or a mid-range one. The news of the existence of the Nokia X is a surprise to the tech industry.

We expect that HMD Global makes this phone a flagship one. This is because if a company decides to recall a device from the past, it naturally won’t give up or compromise in terms of the hardware and software. But there is also a small probability for the device to be mid-range as the original Nokia X was actually a mid-range device.

The device is scheduled to be launched on April 27th. Till now, we have no word regarding the specifications of the device. We hope the company decides to add more power to the device so that it will sustain and survive in the highly competitive market.

According to the latest news, Xiaomi has confirmed the global launch of their flagship device, Mi 8 Pro. Donovan Sung, Xiaomi’s Global spokesperson, disclosed in a tweet that the device will be launched soon in global markets where Xiaomi is present, putting and end for the wait.

Take a look at the post:

The Mi 8 Pro have some major upgrades from its predecessor, the Mi 8, with the main feature upgrade being the on- screen fingerprint scanner. When Mi 8 was launched, the company decided to go with the popular rear mounted fingerprint scanner, while most other flagships had started using the on- screen fingerprint scanner technology which raised a few eye brows.

Apart from the on-screen finger print scanner, the Mi 8 Pro comes packed with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clocked at 2.8GHz. It will be available in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants along with 128 GB non- expandable storage. The Mi 8 Pro sports a 6.26-inch AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.7:9.

It has a wider notch to accommodate the IR face unlock sensor. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI on top. The device is powered by a 3000mAh battery.

Apart from the Ochre Black and Twilight Gold variants, the Mi 8 Pro will be available in a translucent glass back similar to the Mi 8 Explorer edition. The global roll out of the Mi 8 Pro is expected to start in October, most likely to begin from Europe. As for now there is no information about the India launch or price of the Mi 8 Pro.
