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

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. Seen on a theater display in China, an ad for what is clearly being called the Nokia X appeared out of nowhere and has caught many by surprise.

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.
