When the HMD company relocated the Nokia brand to the mobile market in 2016, it made many people happy. However, currently, those who remain loyal to this brand and are looking for a high-end device have no options. Nokia’s last true flagship was the Nokia 9 PureView, launched in 2019, which had mixed success.
But the good news is that before the end of the year, HMD would finally offer a new model for this segment. In any case, this is what is suggested by an article published by the site MoneyControl, which relays the Chinese media ITHome. In essence, the latter indicates that recently, an official of HMD would have indicated that the new flagship of Nokia will be launched in China on November 11.
For the moment, this information should still be considered with caution. However, it should be noted that November 11 corresponds, in China, to the “singles party”, a day during which e-commerce sales explode (with sales volumes which would be even higher than those of Black Friday).
Nokia X50 or Nokia X70?
It is not known what will be called the next smartphone from Nokia. Still, some sources suggest it could be the Nokia X50. This model would not use the Snapdragon 888 processor, but rather a Snapdragon 775 or 775G processor. The device could have a combination of five sensors on the back, including a 108-megapixel main sensor. The Nokia X50 could also have a QHD + screen and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The battery could have a capacity of 6000 mAh and take advantage of Zeiss technologies for the camera.
A priori, the Nokia X50 could position itself as the successor to the Nokia 8.3 5G, a model released in September 2020. It was positioned as a mid-range, but with characteristics very close to those of the premium models, as well as connectivity to 5G. However, Nokia could also, according to rumors circulating on the web, launch a true premium model which could be called Nokia X70.
It should also be noted that currently, rumors are circulating concerning a possible partnership between Nokia and Huawei. According to these, for certain models sold in China, Nokia could use Huawei’s Harmony OS operating system instead of Android.
