Back in December when the Nokia 5 got the Android Oreo beta release, an apk teardown revealed the references to features like the Telephoto, wide-angle features which hinted at the arrival of Nokia 9. Again today a further teardown of APK gives away the references to upcoming Nokia 1, Nokia 4, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 9 devices.
Nokia Power User publication has revealed the existence of the unannounced Nokia phones which interestingly also includes a plus variant of the Nokia 7 which might be launched outside of China, unlike its predecessor. Other Nokia phones are the Nokia 1 which is rumored to the Android Oreo (Go Edition) and the much awaited Nokia 9. Surprisingly despite the myth of number 4 in China, the reference has Nokia 4 on the list.
The dates of these files go back to 9/8/2016, which is well in the past. It is likely that HMD Global might have changed the plans to launch some of them. Other interesting additions that were noticed in the references are the inclusion of telephoto mode, pro mode, shutter speed control which most of the Nokia fans are eagerly waiting to have. The Telephoto lens especially hints at a high-end Nokia 9 which is most anticipated Nokia phone in the recent past.
However, the references don’t reveal any launch dates, so we will have to wait for some more time before the phones see the light in the day. If rumors are to believed, the Nokia 1 Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphone is expected to arrive in March 2018.
