HMD officials hint to new smartphone with display larger than Nokia 8


With the recent flagship launch, the Nokia brand is back in business, hopefully, for many years to come. Although Nokia is not the company behind the new Android smartphones, HMD is doing a great job restoring the name of the Finnish company to its previous glory.

Nokia 8 is expected to make its debut in Europe in early September for €599, but HMD has no immediate plans to release it in the United States. Even though there are other flagships with slightly better specs (OnePlus 5), the Nokia 8 is cheaper than Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 7.

In an interview for Russian publication 4pda.ru, Neil Broadley, Global Marketing Manager for HMD, said that his company does not plan to compete with Samsung or Apple. Instead, HMD will “focus on what will be best for users,” which is a huge difference.

And for those who are not yet convinced that Nokia 8 is a great device, HMD officials made a hint to an upcoming smartphone that will boast a display larger than the company's current flagship device. The said handset is expected “to meet the needs of absolutely all users,” but it's unclear whether or not it will be introduced by the end of the year.
