nokia russia launch event

HMD Global has send media invites for an upcoming Nokia launch event for “new phones” in Russia. The poster reads “Dear friends, we invite you to worldwide premiere for new Nokia phones”. It mentions the date as May 29 but it the venue has been blurred out. The poster didn’t reveal the name or even hint to the smartphones that will be launched.

The event will be attended by the top management of HMD Global like CEO, CMO and CPO which revels the launch will be a pretty big ones. Also another important point that most of the 2018 Nokia smartphones are already available in Russia, including Nokia 8110 4G, Nokia 3310 4G, Nokia 1, Nokia 6 2018 and Nokia 7 Plus except the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 8110 4G. Which means this year’s Nokia 2, 3 and 4 might be launched. HMD Global’s CEO Pekka Rentala already confirmed the existence of Nokia 2, 3 and 5 successors.

Three unknown Nokia smartphones with model number TA-1075, TA-1105 and Ta-1116 were spotted in Russian certification. The certification didn’t reveal any specs so its too early to comment about its segment. Also there was reports that Nokia 3 2018 is getting launched soon. We expect it to run a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset this time instead of a MediaTek one. We will know soon on May 29 at 7 PM.

According to Lei, the Redmi Note 7 supports dust and splash protection just like the OnePlus 6/6T. The R&D team did detailed work, including I/O port seal design, switch & USB waterproof seal, speaker double-layer dust-proof design, independent earpiece sealing, and front-facing sealing rubber sleeve.

However the Redmi Note 7 doesn’t come with an IP certification, but it will be able to provide basic water/splash resistance. If that does sound familiar, OnePlus 6 & 6T comes with similar splash resistance.
