With reports coming in that the brand has sold more than four million smartphones during the last quarter of 2017, nothing is stopping Nokia from making its well-deserved comeback as a staple name in the smartphone market.
To keep everyone excited, we spotted a couple of upcoming Android-powered Nokia smartphones from Evan Blass who is famous for his accuracy in leaking info. This year, we’re going to see the Nokia 7+ and Nokia 1.
The Nokia 1 is a low-end smartphone with a design which certainly reflects that. It’s rumored to have a small HD display (size is still unknown) with 1GB of memory and 8GB of storage. It’ll boot Android Go Edition which is a lightweight version of Android specifically developed by Google for entry-level phones, but not to be confused with Android One.
It doesn’t have a fingerprint reader or any special features on its own. Because it’s a basic smartphone, it’s going to be cheap. It should be perfect for those relying on feature phones who need an upgrade.
The Nokia 7+ (or maybe Nokia 7 Plus), on the other hand, is going to be the first Nokia-branded smartphone to sport a screen with rounded corners if these renders are to be believed. According to previous rumors, it’ll have a 6-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio but no info about its resolution. A Snapdragon 660 processor is expected to be on board with 4GB memory and 64GB storage.
On the back, the Nokia 7+ has dual rear camera with Zeiss-branded lenses, a fingerprint scanner, and an Android One logo which means the phone will run stock Android with timely updates for at least two years after launch.
Both the Nokia 1 and Nokia 7+ might show themselves during the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, so we’ll be on the look out!

Testament to Nokia’s craftsmanship
Two years after making its big comeback, Nokia is slowly filling in the pieces of its Android smartphone lineup. The star of course has to be the new Nokia 8 Sirocco, the most premium from the announcements at Mobile World Congress.
But our favorite is the Nokia 7 Plus, a near-borderless Android One phone with Zeiss optics and a beautiful build.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Review
Are these new features worth the price increase?
In our Samsung Galaxy S9 Review video, we hope to answer questions you may have to help you make an informed decision before buying the phone.
Is Dual Aperture a gimmick? How good is the S9’s camera? S9 or S9+? Is it even worth it?
YouTubers React to the Samsung Galaxy S9
Do they look like their AR Emoji?
A new color, internal camera upgrades, and a few minor changes here and there don’t necessarily make the S9 look or feel new.
But is retaining the same beautiful, sleek design such a bad thing? Are the subtle improvements worth the high price tag? Is AR Emoji a gimmick?
YouTubers Mrwhosetheboss, Joshua Vergara, GadgetsBoy, GadgetsJon, The Tech Chap, David Imel, PC Centric, and Isa Rodriguez tell us what they think about the the Samsung Galaxy S9.
