New Nokia announcement event set for October 11
However, that's not the only important event aimed at Nokia fans, as HMD has just confirmed yet another event, which will take place in India on October 11. The invitation says that HMD Global has an “important announcement” to make and to “let the festive season begin,” but that doesn't suggest that we'll be seeing a new device.
Judging by what the invitation says, it's more likely that a new device will be announced on October 4 rather than next week. Now that rumors claim the Nokia 9 has been delayed for early next year, the only new phone that HMD might announce is the Nokia 7.1 Plus, a mid-range smartphone packing a Snapdragon 710 processor.
The good news is we won't have to wait too long for HMD's first big reveal, which is slated for later this week. As far as the October 11 event goes, it's highly likely that this will be entirely related to the Indian market, so there's that.
