Nokia's been doing exceedingly well over the past year, and this year at MWC we'll expect several phones with "Nokia" and a number in their names: Nokia 6, Nokia 1, Nokia 7, Nokia 7 Plus, and others. You can even download a dedicated Unpacked 2018 app for Android or iOS, and effortlessly watch the event on your mobile device.

HMD Global, the Finnish startup with license to sell Nokia-branded smartphones globally, will announce its next set of devices at MWC 2018 today. While the Nokia 8 Sirocco is the highlight of them all, where it sports Gorilla Glass 5 coating and gets a dual curved edge FullView display too. This year, Samsung's flagship S9 launch is expected to dominate attention, so congress-goers expected a low turnout for the Nokia event, held a few hours before Samsung's across town. It also unveiled a new version of an old favorite that's certain to stoke some serious nostalgia among flip phone fans. This is also an Android One device and comes with an improved processor, the Snapdragon 630, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage for a recommended price of Euro 279. At that time, Samsung cancelled plans to launch its flagship phone in the wake of its exploding batteries debacle, leaving more of the limelight for others. However, HMD Global is yet to launch a true flagship capable of competing against the flagship Galaxy S phones and the iPhone X. Nokia 9 is that phone.

Nokia 8810 has a 2.4-inch QGVA curved display, and runs Qualcomm's MSM8905 dual-core processor under its hood.

Last week, we saw the very first press renders of the Nokia 7 Plus smartphone surface online, along with renders of the entry-level Nokia 1. Nokia 8810 also features a 2-megapixel rear camera. Also, the phone is featuring 6GB LPDDR4 RAM coupled with 128GB internal storage. On the camera front, Blade V9 will feature a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. The device is expected to run on Android Oreo. Now this year at Barcelona, Nokia is expected to launch Nokia 3310 (4G) which is an upgrade over its previous version.
