Moreover, CEO Tim Cook also announced that Apple earned nearly $150 billion in revenue and $34 billion in earnings for the first half of the company’s fiscal year, which also draws the most attention this week.

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.

Valuations are often overrated but not revenue. No company in China has ever achieved $1bn in annual revenue quicker than the smartphone maker Xiaomi, following the launch of it’s first smartphone back in 2011.

Xiaomi fondly dubbed as the “Chinese Apple” by Chinese media is eyeing a giant IPO with a valuation of over $8 billion, but that hasn’t stopped the Chinese OEM from working on new smartphones. Less than six months into 2018, Xiaomi has already come out with Redmi S2, Xiaomi 6x, Mi A6 to name a few.

Early morning today, a list of the upcoming Xiaomi products surfaced online. The list was spotted on Eurasian Economic Commison and reveals a bunch of unreleased phones under the Redmi and Mi series. To add to it, the list also includes the Mi MIX 2s and Redmi S2  which were released earlier this month.

What’s interesting here is that the Mi Mix 2s might actually have a successor likely to be named as Mi Mix 3s, which makes us wonder whether there’ll be a Mi Mix 3.

The Redmi series too will get some new members. In addition to the already mentioned devices, Xiaomi is expected to come with the Redmi A1 and Redmi A2 as successor to previous models. Other than that there’s  Redmi Note 6, Redmi Note 6A, Redmi Note 6a Prime, Redmi Note 6 Prime, Redmi 6 Plus, and Redmi 6a Plus which will replace the current lineup of Redmi smartphones.

The listing is valid upto 31 December, 2023 which means some of the devices might not even launch this year.
