After several years of absence from market, Nokia made its comeback before launching its first flagship few days earlier with Nokia 8. While we have to wait a while before judging its performance and customer satisfaction, the company recently confirmed another smartphone that will feature larger display.
As most of the flagship smartphones of other companies feature larger screen than Nokia 8’s 5.3-inch QHD display, 4PDA asked the head of marketing Neil Broadley why Nokia is preferring another direction with the latest device. He revealed that the design of Nokia 8 is a reflection of consumers’ feedback about the device. He said, “The design of the Nokia 8 was the result of an excellent dialogue between us and consumers. We really got completely satisfactory feedback from users from our surveyed group who liked the display in the form that we did. So we believe that our decision regarding the display is absolutely correct. It is also important to note that Nokia has never been a brand that follows others. We are not here to compete with Samsung or Apple. We are here for consumers and this is a huge difference, as we focus on what will be best for users.”
While he didn’t reveal any other information, company representatives during the event suggested that we might be getting another device in the coming months that will feature larger screen and more power compared to the Nokia 8. According to reports, Nokia 9 might contain larger display and bigger RAM as rumors have started surfacing the next smartphone might feature whopping 8GB of RAM along with 128GB of storage in addition to all the IP68 elements resistance. While there aren’t a lot of details to go on with, Nokia 9 might be priced accordingly with the price exceeding the existing Nokia 8 by a small margin. However, we will have to wait a bit before we get official confirmation regarding the next flagship smartphone from the company.
