Nokia 4 and 7 Plus to be released in 2018
HMD started off 2017 with a bang, as the company launched the Nokia 6, it's first major device, at MWC in February. 2018 may just be a repeat of that. Word on the grapevine claims the company may release the Nokia 6 (2018) and, possibly, the Nokia 9, at this year's Mobile World Congress that's billed to take place in Barcelona.
The Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 9 are all but confirmed at this point, so it's a pleasant surprise to learn that Nokia also has two novel devices slated for 2018, in the forms of the Nokia 4 and Nokia 7 Plus. The source of the information was a camera app archive that, when opened, revealed logo files for Nokia's lineup of devices.
Nothing much is known about the Nokia 4 or 7 Plus. Going by Nokia's naming scheme, the Nokia will likely be an upper low-end device—one that may bear close resemblances to last year's Nokia 5 in terms of performance. The Nokia 7 Plus is a lot more interesting. Nokia is yet to launch the mid-range Nokia 7 globally, so it's a bit hard to estimate when we'll be getting it. The Nokia 7 was powered by the Snapdragon 630, and the Nokia 6 (2018) may be too. That considered, it's likely the Nokia 7 Plus makes a move up to the more powerful Snapdragon 660.
