Nokia 9 & Nokia 8 (2018) Arriving January

Those prices, while fairly high, would be a little lower than previous pricing rumors had suggested and a lot lower than some of this year's flagships, such as the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Two new smartphones are expected to be unveiled at the event - Nokia 9 and the second-generation Nokia 8.

The Nokia 3 is on the last of the list and may get Android 8.0 Oreo by early 2018. However, MyDrivers notes that the handset will come for custom software aimed at the Chinese market, so it remains unclear whether the handset will see a UK release.

Few days back company released the protective case of Nokia 9 that described the entire build of Nokia 9. Nokia 9 has also leaked in images which shows the phone to come in three colour variants - black, blue and silver.

Those specs are in line with high-end handsets from this year, but could quickly look dated in 2018, though that could explain the comparatively low price point rumored for the Nokia 9.

Chances are that the Nokia 9 will be launched in two variants, one with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage while the other version of the phone may have 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

At the 19 January event, HMD Global is also expected to launch a new version of the Nokia 8. It seems that Treble requires a special partitioning of the internal storage that cant be done over the air.

The new report suggests that both the phones, including Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 2018 edition may come with some very similar features like - 18:9 display and will be powered by Qualcomm's latest processor Snapdragon 835 chipset. Some of the other key features that the duo will share include IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, a dual-camera setup at the rear, and USB Type-C audio.
