HMD Global has confirmed that its next launch event will be held at 3PM GMT on April 8th. A fresh leak by Nokiapoweruser suggests that the company may announce new X-series phones such as Nokia X10 and Nokia X20 at the upcoming launch event.
Last year, the Finnish brand launched the Nokia 8.3 5G as its first 5G-enabled smartphone. The new leak reveals that the upcoming Nokia X-series smartphones are powered by the Snapdragon 480 chipset. Since it is designed to power budget-friendly 5G handsets, the X10 and X20 are expected to arrive as the cheapest 5G-ready Nokia phones in the market.
