The Nokia 8 Sirocco has the looks and the price tag, but it doesn't quite deliver a 2018 flagship experience, but there could be a new hero handset on its way.
That's according to Twitter leaker Roland Quandt (opens in new tab), who has a reasonable track record of revealing smartphone details ahead of time, as he has tweeted a teaser about a potentially new, high-end Nokia.
Quandt teases a 'high-end SoC' for the handset, which could well mean this new Nokia flagship may sport the Snapdragon 845 - a chip that the 8 Sirocco really should have had, instead of the older 835.
So, HMD/Nokia has something with a current high-end SoC in the works. With a feature that was pioneered by a few chinese brands. More about this tomorrow (CET).June 26, 2018
More interestingly though, he also mentions that the phone will boast a technology being pioneered by Chinese brands.
It means we could see a high screen-to-body ratio on the rumored phone, as a pop-up camera seems less likely at this time.
More to come
That's all the detail we have for now, but Quandt says he'll have more for us today, and we'll update this article with any additional information he may have on the subject.
We've also contacted HMD Global to find out if we can get any more information from the company directly.
