HMD Global may have a smartphone or two up its sleeve for show at this year's MWC. Rumors are few and far between on what exactly the company has been working on behind curtains.

Despite the recent reshuffling of Nokia staff and the company's long history of misfortunes in the smartphone market, HMD Global is still planning a press conference on the Sunday before the official start of MWC 2017 in Barcelona. Competing manufacturers like Huawei, Samsung, Sony, and LG will all be holding press conferences within days of one another as well, so Nokia will be under extreme pressure to stand out from the crowd or risk being overshadowed. According to a Twitter by Quandt, the Nokia press conference will start at 16:30 local time.

It should be interesting to see what Nokia has in store for the public after being largely silent for the past year. Its recent partnership with Foxconn, for example, could lead to a family of brand new smartphones for a worldwide launch instead of Asia-only models currently in the market. Previously rumored smartphones include the Nokia P1 or the supposedly debunked Nokia 8 featuring Snapdragon 835 SoCs and QHD IGZO displays from Sharp. The same display technology can be found on a handful of notebooks including the Razer Blade and is known for its very wide gamut and color accuracy.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
