It seems we might see another major showing by Nokia at this year’s MWC. HMD Global’s Chief Product Office, Juho Sarvikas posted a tweet which suggested that the company may be planning something big. “Sorry for radio silence. Been super busy planning #MWC2018. Please expect it to be awesome,” Sarvikas said in his tweet. Nokia has also sent out media invites for its presentation, which will be held on February 25.

It should be noted that last year’s MWC was also a pretty big deal for the company as it globally unveiled its lineup of Android powered devices as well as its new Nokia 3310 feature phone. Almost the entire lineup of the company’s 2017 smartphones except for the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 were unveiled at the event.

Details of what Nokia may be planning to launch at this year’s MWC are not yet known, but the company will most likely unveil the Nokia 1 and the Nokia 9 smartphones. The Nokia 1 is expected to be a budget offering from the company and may run Android Oreo (Go Edition). It is expected to be powered by a MediaTek processor with 1GB of RAM. It is also tipped to offer 8GB of storage and be equipped with a 720p display.

The Nokia 9 is expected to be the company’s new flagship smartphone. The device is tipped to feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED QHD display. It is also expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and offer 6GB of RAM. In terms of space, the device may be available in 64GB and 128GB variants. Other features that the phone may offer include IP67 water and dust resistance, and possibly the removal of the 3.5 audio jack.

Besides these two, the company may also release a global variant of the Nokia 6 (2018) smartphone that was launched in China earlier this month. The new phone sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display and is powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC with 4GB of RAM. The phone is equipped with a 3000mAh battery and is available in 32GB and 64GB storage variants.

There is also a possibility of the company unveiling a 4G variant of the Nokia 3310. The phone was spotted in Chinese certification website, TENAA. However, unlike the 2017 version of the phone, the new phone is tipped to run YunOS, which is capable of running a few Android apps.
