Last Thursday,in the first firm to launch a phone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor . East SoC created by the Californian, shares architecture with the current king of the series Snapdragon and I am very much afraid that it will be a key piece in the consolidation of the medium-premium range throughout the second half of 2018.
So much so, that one of the companies that head the segment of the mid-range as it is Nokia, would already be working on the development of a new smartphone with this brain , destined to see the light in the coming months. This has been confirmed, who also wanted to offer more information about, which will share a processor with the aforementioned Nokia model.
A Nokia with Snapdragon 710 and Android One to lead the most premium midrange
Given the current catalog of Nokia smartphones with Android, it seems likely that the aforementioned model with Snapdragon 710 processor was a renewal of the Nokia 7, or a new model of the Nokia X family – speculations have already appeared on a supposed Nokia X7 -. Anyway, what we know today is that the latest Qualcomm processor, characteristic for its architecture of 10 nanometers and 8 cores, and artificial intelligence multi-core engine will be on board to give the terminal enough power. Apparently, the code name of the terminal is Phoenix.
On the other hand, according to the philosophy of HMD Global, it is a fact that this new smartphone, and therefore will be one of the first phones to receive the latest operating system updates.
HMD / Nokia Mobile is working on a Snapdragon 710 based device to be released in the autumn / winter 2018 timeframe. Codename is “Phoenix”. Oh and btw, the Google SDM710 based device is apparently called “Bonito”.

Beyond all this, Quandt also ensures that the Google model with the same processor mentioned above, is known internally by the name of “Bonito” . If we look at the background of the company, we know that Google has named all terminals with fish names – the Nexus 6P was Angler, the original Pixel Sailfish, the Pixel 2 XL Taimen … -. Be that as it may, this model inferior to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is not expected until the beginning of 2019.
