Rumors: About Nokia 7 and 9, and the successor of the Nokia 8 – codenamed B2

Nokia 8 was practically just announced, and launched earlier this month, and we already have rumors about the successor of the 8, a device currently codenamed B2. Also, new rumors about Nokia 7 and 9 appeared, but as always, we have to point out that these information cannot be verified, so we all should take it with a pinch of salt.

VTechgraphy reports that on the Chinese Baidu forums new info emerged about the Nokia 7, Nokia 9, and the successor of the Nokia 8 – device codenamed B2.

Rumors about the Nokia 7 say that the phone should be announced in China next month. It could be under the model number TA-1041 or TA-1042, that we saw recently pass CCC certification. Nokia 7 should feature Snapdragon 630 platform in three configurations: 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage; and 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device should also have USB Type C and the Dual-Sight option from Nokia 8. About the 9, the source says that it’s spec-wise close to Nokia 8, but with a curved screen, which is in line with previous rumors.

The most interesting piece of information is something about the successor of the Nokia 8; about the Nokia 8 (2018), that is rumored to be codenamed B2. HMD B2 is a lamp, shows the Internet, but the B2 could also represent the B2-Spirit, American famous Stealth Bomber. The B2 should come with rounded corners and an all-screen design, with a back similar to the one on the rumored Nokia 9. B2 is not a typical HMD codename – for example, the 6 was codenamed “Plate”. But, FIH Mobile uses such nomenclature and they called the Nokia 6 D1C, so it could be their internal name for the next year’s 8. It’s worthy to point out that Nokia 8 was, in fact, supposed to be announced in June this year, and not August, so it’s not strange that there is already some talk about a successor.

I have to say again, these are just rumors and we cannot confirm anything mentioned above, but still, we can have a discussion 🙂 Tell us what you think about the rumors down below. I also made a meme of a B2 bomber droping the 3310 3G units as bombs 😀 Take a look below.

  • No SD660 in the scene..
    Wonder if it’ll be straight jump to rumoured 10nm SD670

    • Hemedans

      SD660 is good soc for power users, i was hoping HMD will produce phone with removable battery, SD660, big battery 3400mah+, 720p/1080p display and unlocked bootloader, we need another legend like Nokia n9,

        HMD’s CTO discussed that they would unlock the Nokia-phones one device at the time. Interesting.

      • 7 – 630
        7+ – 660
        After all if I take Indian market for example
        Nokia 6 – ₹15,000/-
        Nokia 7 –
        Nokia 7+ –
        Nokia 8 – ₹37,000/-

        Two devices could easily fit in-between that gap

  • Stinger

    I love the meme!!! ha ha ha. Is the bombing target a certain red fruit with one bite taken out of it? ha ha.

    I hope the 7 launches soon. It’s starting to sound like a decent mid-range device. Maybe in the EUR 300 to 400 bracket?

    • Hehe I’m glad you like it. Could be, especially if the configurations turn out to be true.

  • Gerrard Jr

    Nokia 7 with 3 variants??
    Not in line with what nokia offers so far…

    • In China yes. There is a Nokia 6 4+64 and 4+32. The global variant is 3+32. Three variants…

      • Gerrard Jr

        make sense that way…
