HMD Global has scheduled a launch event at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018, where it is expected to announce numerous smartphones. A couple of those smartphones could be the Nokia 1 and the Nokia 7+, which were leaked by Evan Blass earlier today.
According to rumors, the Nokia 1 is said to be based on the Android Go platform for low-end devices and will be the cheapest smartphone from HMD Global. Since no other company has launched a Go-based device yet, it could also be the first one when it launches later this month. There is no information about the device's hardware specifications available yet.
The other device which has made its appearance is - what Evan Blass calls, the Nokia 7+, which was first rumored to launch in January, but hasn't so far. Interestingly, the image posted by Blass mentions Android One on the backplate, which is a new bit of information from earlier leaks and rumors. The smartphone will allegedly feature a tall 18:9 aspect ratio display with Full HD+ resolution, a Snapdragon 660 chipset and a dual-camera with ZEISS lenses.
HMD Global's rising shipments since its debut last year could further increase with the launch of such devices positioned in distinct price points. We will know more about the company's plans during its event on February 25 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
