Just to be clear, when Nokia unveiled the Nokia 8 Sirocco, there was no doubt it was a flagship across the board, from the 5.5-inch pOLED display with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, narrow bezels, and 6 GB of RAM to the dual cameras and Android 8.0 Oreo OS.

It is reported that HMD is preparing for Nokia 8 Pro launch in August 2018 while the Nokia 9 expected to launch later in September.

The two are Nokia 8 Pro and Nokia 9.

The company took a head start with rebranded feature phones like Nokia 3310 and mid-range Android-powered smartphones like Nokia 6 and then introduced its first flagship late past year dubbed as Nokia 8. According to the recent reports, the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 8 Pro could be the two smartphones that HMD Global may announce any time this year. The report suggests the Nokia 9 will get a bigger, 5.7-inch display compared to the 5.5-inch display on the Nokia 8 Pro.

The USP of the phone could be its penta-lens camera setup. Even though the source has not confirmed, there is a possibility that the screen will offer an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is also said that it will be Nokia's first in-display phone equipped with a fingerprint sensor.

Due to these design characteristics, the Nokia 8110 was called the banana phone back then.

As a side note, the rumored Nokia 9 in 2017 turned out to be the Nokia 8 Sirocco. A 5-megapixel selfie camera can be given at the front.

But even though Google is yet to refresh its list of 21 phones meeting "elevated enterprise requirements", the official Nokia website has been discreetly updated to include a grand total of four top-notch candidates "for your workforce". 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+. So it is expected that the Nokia 8 Pro could be competing with the likes of OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 smartphones.
