The rumor mill expects two new Nokia phones, but there may be a third. An update to the Google ARCore database reveals support from three new phones: AOP_sprout, PNX_sprout and CTL_sprout.
The first two are easy. The Nokia 9 leak that showed a whopping 5 camera setup listed the model name as AOP. Next up is the Nokia 7.1 Plus (aka Nokia X7), which is codenamed Phoenix. The third model is a mystery. It could be the gaming phone that HMD has been teasing.
So, what do we know about these phones? The Nokia 9 was supposed to launch by the end of the year (though it may have been delayed) and it will be powered by a Snapdragon 845. HMD officially promised a best-in-class camera, though whether or not it will have 5 sensors remains to be seen. An in display fingerprint reader is a possibility too.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus renders show a notched screen, an aluminum body and a Snapdragon 710 chipset running Android One. The dual camera on the back will have Zeiss lenses.
Anyway, HMD has an event in London scheduled for October 4 (Thursday next week) and since the invite uses singular (latest addition), chances are that well see just one of these three devices.
