Following Huawei's announcement that they're cutting the price of their flagships Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, HMD Global announced they are also cutting the price of their own flagship, the Nokia 8. There's also the Nokia 9 2018 model that is believed to be the ultimate flagship from Nokia this year. You may have heard rumours about a Nokia smartphone with a penta-lens setup. The phone now being referred to as the Nokia 9 could get a name change as well. The handset was spotted with dual edge curved display panel and dual camera setup. The smartphone will be featuring a 5.5-inch display.

As per earlier reports, Nokia 9 will be running on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. The primary sensor will be of 12-megapixel, while the secondary sensor will be of 13-megapixel. Nevertheless, HMD is still planning to launch the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 8 Pro as later this year, and they are set to be the company's main flagships for 2018. For the front, there would be a 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Not that we ever doubted this, but the three new mid to high-end Nokia smartphones are now guaranteed to score at least one "letter upgrade" as well. The budget phone Nokia 3 is available for P500 off, and will be coming with a JBL Go Bluetooth speaker. Apart from that, the Nokia 9 is expected to get a heftier price tag that will put it among the ranks of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9+.
