Nokia teases revival of the Nokia N8 for China, set to be unveiled soon
HMD Global’s next revival could see the return of the Nokia N name. Ever since the Finnish company acquired the rights to the Nokia brand, it has chosen to take advantage of some of the company’s more historical devices.
With Nokia’s return last year, HMD Global chose to revive the popular Nokia 3310
, while earlier on this year, at MWC, the brand introduced an updated Nokia 8110
, also known as the banana phone. Now, however, just two short months later, it appears the popular brand could be about to revive yet another device.
In a teaser dropped over on its official Weibo account, HMD Global-controlled Nokia hinted at a possible launch between April 27 and May 2 of an all new Nokia N series smartphone. No specific name was mentioned, although the message was accompanied by an image of the original Nokia N8, suggesting an updated version could be just around the corner. If this is the case, it appears likely that the device will remain exclusive to China. Although if popular enough, HMD Global may go on to launch the smartphone elsewhere.
The new Nokia N teaser comes just before the brand is set to revive the Nokia X name, with the introduction of the Nokia X6 that recently leaked in a number of hands-on images
. The upcoming device looks set to boast a tall, 19:9 display that will also feature a notch up top while, on the rear of the new handset, a dual-camera setup will be featured.
Nokia is yet to confirm any of the new revivals officially, but with the upcoming Nokia X6
set to be revealed later today according to recent information, and the Nokia N possibly seeing its announcement any day now, it should only be a matter of time before the existence of both devices, or lack thereof, is confirmed.
