By far, as several rumours and leaks suggest, we already know that HMD Global is working on the successor of the Nokia 8, aka Nokia 9. Similar to the Nokia 8, chances are, Nokia 9 is going to be a high-end phone as well. Amidst all the rumours, a new report coming from China reveals that HMD Global will be hosting an event to launch the Nokia 9 on Jan 19. Reports also suggest, alongside the Nokia 9, HMD Global may also unveil another phone — which may the 2018 edition of the Nokia 8. It is noteworthy that the Finnish company will host the launch event in China on Jan 19, which means initially both the phones — Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 (2018) will be available in China, and may hit other markets, including India late next year.
This report stating the launch date of Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 (2018) China launch comes from a Chinese website — MyDrivers, and it should be noted that HMD Global is yet to officially announce the announcement dates of the phones. And this, HMD Global may do in the days to come.
If the new report is to consider, Nokia 9 will be the star of the Jan 19 launch event, which will be followed by next-gen Nokia 8 launch. The report reveals that both the phones will be customized only for China market and hence may come with entails special ROMs where Google services may be replaced by local alternatives.
