Nokia 5 (2018) is coming, HMD Global executive teases

The Nokia 7 Plus was launched globally during the Mobile World Congress event in late February. That is set to change soon as HMD Global has confirmed the phone's second SIM too will be made VoLTE compliant soon.

Meet the Nokia 7 Plus. The confirmation comes directly from Juho Sarvikas who's the Chief product officer of HMD Global. Now, the tweet fails to mention any specific release dates, but considering last year's model went on sale in June, it seems likely that this year's variant could see a similar release date, with an announcement possibly happening towards the end of May. But then, the smartphone was criticised for one thing - the lack of VoLTE support in second SIM slot.

The smartphone features a 6-inch IPS LCD with 18:9 ratio display of 1080 x 2160 pixels, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The phone offers 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. For photography, there is a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera.
