On the basis of their latest teaser, HMD Global appears to be all set to make yet another splash at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) scheduled to take place sometime next month.
To recall, HMD Global officially revived their classic Nokia 3310 feature phone at the MWC, 2017. Leading rumors and speculations state that the company plans on unveiling the Nokia 9 smartphone running on Android Oreo OS (Go edition at the event scheduled to take place next month.
As noted by Gadgets 360, rumors regarding this started emerging when HMD Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas on Thursday posted a teaser on his official Twitter account. “Sorry for the radio silence. Been super busy planning #MWC2018. Please expect it to be awesome,” his tweet read. Clearly, there is no description of what he is referring to when he says the word, “awesome.” On the basis of recent reports, however, it is safe to assume that it will be something to do with Nokia’s premium segment market.

Along with this, the Finnish technology giant is also expected to revive it’s Nokia 3310 feature phone with a 4G version of it.
