Nokia was one of the top smartphone manufacturs but soon their sales dipped after Microsoft acquired them. However with its new owner HMD Global, the brand seems to be back on track. Now, the company is rumoured to be working on a new smartphone called Nokia Phoenix.

In a latest turn of events, a popular tipster Hikari found references to the Nokia Phoenix in FIH server data. FIH (Foxconn International Holdings) is the current manufacturing partner of HMD Global and it has previously provided information about upcoming smartphones before also. The device’s appears as PNX and Phoenix code-names in their database.

The Nokia Phoenix smartphone’s details have been shrouded in mystery since it was first mentioned by another tipster Roland Quandt. Though it has made headlines a couple of times, this is the first time a concrete evidence for the device’s existence is found. Hikari posted her findings in her Twitter handle @Hikari_Calyx believing it was an unknown device. But he later correlated with the previous information and confirmed that it was indeed the Nokia Phoenix.

The findings fails to reveal any other information about the smartphone but its highly speculated that it will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset which is upgrade to the Snapdragon 660 platform, one of the most widely used chipsets in mid-range smartphones this year. The new chipset brings improved battery performance and artificial intelligence (AI) features. The smartphone is said to bridge the gap between the Qualcomm powered mid-range and flagship devices which hints that the Phoenix will be an upper mid-range or flagship device.

Apart from this, other rumoured specs include an 18:9 display (means no notch), 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage. Some reports claim the Phoenix is none other than the Nokia X7 which will be named Nokia 7.1 Plus globally. It will likely debut towards the end of this year.

From a report by Counterpoint, OnePlus 6 is the top leading smartphone in India in the premium smartphone market. The company has taken over Samsung for the first time in a full quarter in Q2 2018 in India with 40 percent market share. In the budget segment, Samsung is also facing a lot of stiff competition from other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO and Huawei Honor.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A8+ earlier this year to compete against the OnePlus 5T. Despite featuring an Infinity display and powered by Exynos 7882, it failed to stand it’s ground against the OnePlus flagship with a similar price tag of Rs 33,000.

Now a new report from IANS reveals that Samsung is planning to launch a new Galaxy A series smartphone in the country. It will be placed in the premium segment with a price tag of around Rs 30,000 or above. Xiaomi has recently teased it’s POCO brand in India whose first smartphone Pocophone F1 has been getting a lot of attention. Samsung wouldn’t want Xiaomi to make a strong dominance in this segment also.

From the report, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 6.3 inch Full HD+ AMOLED Infinity Display with sleek bezels on side. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with further expandable options via a microSD card. From these descriptions, we can assume that the phone that is going to be launched is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star which was launched earlier in China.

It will sport a dual camera setup of 24MP + 16MP in the rear with Samsung Live Focus feature while the front will offer a 24MP camera for selfies and video calling. The yet-to-be announced smartphone will be going  against the likes of OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Huawei Nova 3 and the Xiaomi Pocophone F1.
