January 25, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, at HMD Global had tweeted that the company would unveil something incredible, we weren’t sure as to what the product would be. The new product is now among the most anticipated ones at the MWC. However, we are still in the dark about what it would be!

An invite for the event being sent out reveals a connected home product. It has asked invited guests to collect a ‘house key’ and also says ‘Welcome Home’. With sketches of a side table, overhead lamp, framed wall photo and window around, a couple sitting on the floor inside a house is what portrayed in the invitation.

Apart from the mystery product, HMD Global might also lift the wraps off its Nokia 9 and Android Oreo (Go Edition) based Nokia 1 at the event. The company is also said to be gearing up to launch Nokia 4, Nokia 7, Nokia 8 (2018) and the 4G LTE-enabled model of the Nokia 3310 feature phone.

Talking of Nokia 9, the smart handset will probably feature a 5.5-inch QHD bezel-less display with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels.

A battery of 3800mAH with Qualcomm Quick-Charge 4 support will also be an added feature.

The smartphone comes with a 12-megapixel dual Carl-Zeiss rear camera and a 12-megapixel front camera for selfies. A fingerprint scanner and an Iris Scanner will be built in the device. Nokia 9 is also certified with IP68 for water and dust resistance. The smartphone will measure 140.9 mm in length, 72.9 mm in width and 7.5 mm in depth.
