Global smartphone sales growth will slow down in 2018 — TrendForce

Global smartphone sales growth will slow down in 2018 — TrendForce

While growth of Samsung Electronics and Apple in the global smartphone market is expected to slow this year, Nokia is being forecast to resurface as a global smartphone brand, according to an analysis by United States market researcher on Wednesday. The sources go on to claim that these anticipated Nokia phones will be joined by 1-2 more devices around the same time. As for their availability in India, the report says that the Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 1 and Nokia 9 will be will be arriving the shores starting April this year. However, no specific dates have been revealed for the launch of the phones. The phone already underwent a series of durability tests and was said to receive Android 8.1 Oreo update with Android Go features.

After starting with a market share and global ranking of zero previous year, Nokia now has 1% of the global market share and falls just outside the top 10 phone brands.

While many speculate that this is the Nokia 9, the probability of the Nokia 7 Plus launching before the 9 are higher, hence, it could be an HMD Global employee testing the Nokia 7 Plus. The Nokia 7 plus will also feature a dual-tone design thanks to a few gilded bits and pieces like the fingerprint scanner ring, the dual-camera casing and the Nokia logo on the back. Both sensors have an f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, 76.9-degree wide-angle lens and accompanied with a dual-tone LED flash and an IR rangefinder. The Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Nokia 8 includes a refreshed power menu, battery saving navigation buttons, new Settings menu including battery percentage indicator for Bluetooth.

As a general specs refresher, the Nokia 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor backed by 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage (expandable), and is kitted out with an 8 MP main camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
