Nokia's camera app gives us a hint to its 2018 plans

Nokia had a successful first year making Android devices, but how will it follow it up in 2018? We may have just gotten our first look from an unlikely source: its camera app.

Published onJanuary 3, 2018

  • Nokia’s camera app contains references to unreleased devices called the Nokia 1, 4, 7 Plus, and 9.
  • The Nokia 9 has been rumored for over six months and could be the company’s next flagship.
  • The Nokia 1 is expected to be an entry-level device running Android Go.

After many years out of the limelight, Nokia burst back on the scene in 2017. HMD Global released six smartphones under the brand to audiences all over the world. But that was 2017. Fans are wondering how HMD will follow up its freshman year and what we can expect in 2018. According to a new leak, we may be getting an early look at the company’s plans.

The information comes from MySmartPrice who decompiled the company’s camera app. According to PNG files in the app, the names of the unreleased devices are the Nokia 1, 4, 7 Plus, and 9.

Year one: The good and bad of Nokia's return to smartphones

We’ve seen leaks of the Nokia 9 from as far back as May of 2017. The device will allegedly be a new flagship, and come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. The Nokia 1 will reside at the other end of the spectrum. The entry-level device is expected to run Android Go, and come with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage.

This is the first we’re hearing about the Nokia 4 or 7 Plus. If the company’s naming convention holds up, we expect the 4 to be a budget device, much like the Nokia 3 and 5. The 7 Plus should provide incremental upgrades over the current Nokia 7 that has a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.

While we lack many details on these devices right now, we expect to hear more soon. CES 2018 kicks off in less than a week, and HMD is hosting an event on January 19 in China.
