Since February this year, HMD Global has released a total of 10 smartphones, each placed in various price segments. And the company is not done yet, as it may have a few more smartphones to unveil. Just today, we came across the alleged Nokia 9 leaked photo that shows off a penta camera setup at the back. But before the Nokia 9, looks like the company is all set to unveil a new smartphone in Taiwan.

Nokia has stated teasing a new smartphone launch on its Taiwanese Facebook page. While the teaser does not confirm the name, it does confirm that the smartphone will sport a tall display. The area around the top panel also hints at the presence of a notch. The device here, in question, is likely the Nokia X7.

A leak dating back to June hinted that it will carry a codename ‘Phoenix’ and will launch sometime in the fall. The Nokia X7 is expected to be an upper mid-range smartphone powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC.

However, the teaser does not mention any launch date, so we will have to wait until the date is officially revealed.
