Nokia 8 Pro: The Rumored Powerful Flagship From HMD Global

  • Rajeev Suri Nokia's President and Chief Executive Officer speaks during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain

The leak, a result of a monumental cock up by someone at Samsung, shows off the new handset less than 24 hours before its official unveiling on Sunday evening at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The lack of innovation will be readily apparent at the Galaxy S9 event, regardless of the fact that there's been a decent amount of fanfare regarding the release of the latest and greatest from Samsung.

There's also news that the Xperia XZ Premium 2 might have a 5.7-inch 4K display, a 3,420mAh battery and - perhaps most excitingly of all - a whole new design, with smaller bezels.

Samsung has made it clear on the S9 teaser and event invitation that the phones' biggest improvement will be in the photography department.

According to the newspaper, the front frame of the smartphone has decreased slightly, and the double main camera module.

KitGuru Says: The Galaxy S8 ended up being a huge success, so I imagine the Galaxy S9 will also end up being well received, even if prices do rise a bit compared to previous year. In terms of operating power, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will have the latest-generation processors, namely either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the Exynos 9810, depending on the country.

Gartner's figures follow reports earlier this month from research company IDC that China's annual smartphone sales fell 4.9 per cent in 2017, as consumers in the world's most populous nation wait longer to upgrade their devices. Are any of you now waiting to upgrade your smartphone?

Samsung and Apple are destined to copy each other, though Samsung tends to be less subtle about it.

According to leaks, Galaxy S9+ will have dual rear cameras with 12MP+12MP sensors, while the S9 will sport a single 12MP camera at the back.

That means we're not only choosing not to buy quality devices when we buy a smartphone, but we're holding onto quality models for longer periods of time, nearly like we do when it comes to TVs, buying something good and expecting it to last a long time. Likely to boot with stock Android based on Android 8.0 Oreo, this smartphone from HMD is said to feature OZO Audio and Bothie photo capture mode as well. So please, surprise us Samsung. Few details for them have gone unnoticed. Synaptics and Vivo banded together to unveil the first phone to include in-display fingerprint sensing at CES 2018.
