Nokia-branded Snapdragon 710 smartphone to arrive by winter, codenamed "Phoenix"

Snapdragon 710-powered Nokia smartphone codenamed "Phoenix" will arrive by Winter
HMD Global has already announced a wide range of smartphones so far this year, but according to a new leak courtesy of Roland Quandt, the Finland-based company isn’t done yet. In fact, it has plans for at least one extra device, albeit a slightly more premium offering.

Specifically, Quandt claims that HMD Global is currently working on a smartphone under the codename “Phoenix” that is set to use Qualcomm’s latest processor, the Snapdragon 710, which was most recently featured inside Xiaomi’s Mi 8 SE. Now, aside from the processor, it’s unclear what the new Nokia device will offer, but 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage are the most likely options. Additionally, a dual-camera setup comprised of two ZEISS-branded lenses is a possibility. Also, in regards to the overall design, Nokia could potentially opt for a slightly more premium glass build, with the front of the smartphone expected to adorned by a tall 18:9 display. 

Currently, it appears the new Nokia device is on track for an autumn/winter 2018 release which, if true, could mean it will eventually compete directly with Google’s upcoming Pixel-branded Snapdragon 710 device, codenamed “Bonito.” After all, Google’s offering is expected to make an official appearance in 2019 and will ultimately compliment both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL which, according to recent information, are set to boast 5.3-inch and 6.2-inch displays respectively.

Considering Autumn is still quite a few months away, leaks are likely to remain minimal for the time being. However, for those wishing to get their hands on a more budget-friendly Nokia smartphone, the brand has just launched the Nokia 2.1, 3.1, and 5.1.
