Thanks to Android One, the Nokia mobile range has become quite the phenomenon for those wanting a stock Android experience at a great price. With a full range of handsets available in Australia ranging from the low to high-end it’s time for Nokia to announce something new, with the possibility it could be flagship level.

The Nokia Mobile Twitter account has outright stated a new handset will be announced on August 21, sharing the image with the caption ‘Get ready to unveil the most awaited phone’ teasing something high-end possibly the Nokia 9.

The Nokia 8 ‘Sirocco’ is already a very capable and high-end smartphone which is available in Australia sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB of on-board storage, so what could the Nokia 9 have under the hood to one-up these specs? Rumours point to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, but to find out we’ll have to wait for the August 21st (likely August 22nd here in Australia) announcement to find out.

    A new *retro* Nokia 8210 would be great, add in some good bluetooth support and the functions of Google Assistant and I’m in!

    I happily paid the 1200 for the Nokia 8 sirocco, I found it to be a much better phone then the Samsung note 8, iPhone 8 and Sony’s Xperia xz premium. I am very impressed with its battery life and how quickly it charges when plugged in. The only 2 problems that I have is that a 5w wireless charger takes a long time to charge it and there is no micro SD card holder. Apart from that it is an awesome phone

    Nokia has a good philosophy of providing quick and timely updates to the Android OS, and not modifying it much. This is a big reason to support Nokia.


    The pricing of nokia phones are quute ridiculous in aistralia. 1200 aud for nokia 8 sirocco at launch is just absolutely ludicrous and i would be amazed if one person paid that much money for it
