Or could it be the Nokia 9, which cleared the FCC back in June and would be quite the milestone. Probably before now, Nokia 8 has been on sale in India for over a week now. Launching the Nokia 9 now would eclipse it. A 4G feature smartphone is also a distant possibility.
But As of now we still having a stronger hope on the Nokia 7 which is yet to be welcomed and launched in India, Maybe this is just a welcoming party for the device. But time will tell, if the device is launched on 31st October.
