Russian site 4pda.ru visited HMD’s Nokia 8 event in London and did a detailed report about the event occurred yesterday. Not only did they find out that the 8 should be available in Russia from 1st September for about €575, with pre-orders starting this week, but an HMD representative told them that HMD is working on a big screen flagship phone that should be announced in the near future.
We already heard some rumors about a bigger flagship that will be allegedly called the Nokia 9. A month ago, Baidu users reported that Nokia 8 is already in mass production (, which was true considering the statement Juho Sarvikas (CPO at HMD) made during the event that the phone is already being shipped), and that a Nokia 9 existed with “bezel-less” display, IP68 certificate and up to 8GB of RAM.
Ну а в качестве вишенки на торте представители HMD Global сделали намёк на то, что в будущем нас ждёт ещё один смартфон — с экраном побольше, чем в Nokia 8, чтобы удовлетворить потребности абсолютно всех пользователей.
Well, as a cherry on the cake representatives of HMD Global made a hint that in the future we are waiting for another smartphone – with a larger screen than in Nokia 8, to meet the needs of absolutely all users. – 4pda.ru (translated)
It’s hard to tell how much is the information about the Nokia 9’s specifications true, but the Russian site 4pda.ru mentioned in their last sentence that a bigger-screen device is coming, and there is not much reason for them to lie and spread fake news. It’s also logical for HMD to launch a flagship with bigger screen, because a lot of people genuinely want big screens.
