New Nokia smartphone to be unveiled on October 19


Apparently, HMD plans to introduce at least one more Nokia smartphone by the end of the year. Although previous rumors suggest the Finnish company won't be releasing any other smartphone in 2017, HMD has just announced a launch event for October 19.

The event will take place in China and the Nokia smartphone to be unveiled later this week will be available for purchase via major retailer Tmall. Unfortunately, there's no telling what device HMD will reveal on October 18.

It could be another Nokia 8 variant with more memory or a completely new handset. For what is worth, Tmall teases the new smartphone and says that it comes with the Bothie feature that's available on the Nokia 8, as well as some OZO Audio features.

So, it's either the rumored Nokia 7 or the improved version of Nokia 8 with 6GB RAM inside. The latter is already available for purchase in select European countries but has yet to make its debut in China. The funny thing is the standard Nokia 8 was initially introduced in China, while the enhanced model will arrive after being released in other countries.
