HMD Global came up with Android One featured Smartphones of Nokia Brand at MWC 2018 by releasing Nokia 8110 which was a VoLTE- featured phone. After MWC 2018, HMD Global launched 4 different phone with Nokia branding but only one phone featured the trending 28:9 display which was Nokia 7 Plus. It was yesterday when the company came up with its new device under Nokia branding the new Nokia X having a highly trending “Notch” at the top of the display.
