But perhaps because of the "traffic" the new smartphone is producing, HMD Global's Juho Sarvikas is putting the Nokia X6's fate in the hands of the people.

New Nokia X coming next week

New Nokia X coming next week

It doesn't seem like HMD Global is bothering keeping this one a secret. Or rather, it's actually surprising that it was able to keep this new phone under wraps this long.

Nokia 8 Pro, Nokia 9 still coming as true 2018 flagships

Nokia 8 Pro, Nokia 9 still coming as true 2018 flagships

Last week at MWC, HMD Global made a slightly different pitch when it unveiled its new Nokia phones, focusing more on their Android One commitment rather than on the devices’ hardware. And that might probably be for the best considering the top of the line model, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, fails the 2018 flagship criteria in just one detail. Nokia fans need not fret, however, as a Nokia 8 Pro is reportedly still on the table. And to mix it up even me, so is a Nokia 9.

MWC 2018 Highlights: the mid-range devices win

MWC 2018 practically ended on its first day or two, with most of the announcements dumped then and there. There were some late surprises but we pretty much got a feel of the event right from the start. It was almost low-key, somber, and serious, with a few spikes here and there with interesting, if not sensational news. That doesn’t mean, however, that MWC this year was pretty dead. In fact, the biggest winners, at least by the numbers, seem to be the underdogs. Here are just some of the highlights of MWC 2018, especially for the smartphone market.

Future Nokia Android phones to run Android Go

Future Nokia Android phones to run Android Go

HMD Global has done something that neither Microsoft nor Nokia itself was able to do. It successfully turned the brand around, outselling many of the larger smartphone OEMs last year. The latest batch of Nokia smartphones have become a fan favorite among Android users because of their clean, “pure”, and quickly updated Android experience. Riding on that popularity, Nokia is now making a full commitment to ship all its future Android phones as Android One devices, ensuring that they will remain “pure, secure, and up-to-date”, at least for a year and a half.
