HMD Global, the company responsible for bringing Nokia back to life, has geared up for a new launch event in Dubai. The company’s product chief Juho Sarvikas tweeted a teaser of the launch event along with hashtag #ExpectMore. The launch takes place on December 5. As per the teaser, the company is expected to unveil three new smartphones, two of them seemingly feature a notched display. We were unable to determine whether the third model on the right sports a notch above the display.

A report has it that HMD could be planning to unveil the Nokia 9 and Nokia 8.1. In fact, the arrival of Nokia 9 is long rumoured. Nokia 8.1 is believed to be a rebranded Nokia X7. The handset is tipped to arrive in India towards the end of this month. Nokia X7 became official in China last month. If Nokia 8.1 is indeed a rebranded Nokia X7, we can expect the specs to remain unchanged.
