Nokia’s newly updated lineup of smartphones should arrive in the UK starting April. HMD Global’s Finnish brand originally confirmed that its new set of devices would be available starting this sprint but exact dates were not mentioned, though Brittish retailer Clove is seeking to rectify that omission. Nokia’s new 7 Plus will launch in the UK on April 16 and those interested in the device can currently pre-order it for £349.99 in the Black & Copper color combination. For the price, HMD Global has equipped it with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB of RAM, which is accompanied by 64GB of internal storage. Furthermore, the rear of the device sports a dual 12-megapixel camera setup, and just like nearly all of the new Nokia devices, the Nokia 7 Plus ships with stock Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

One week later, on April 23, the Nokia 8 Sirocco flagship will begin shipping at a price of £649.99 with last year’s Snapdragon 835 on the inside, alongside 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Not to mention the same dual-camera setup that is featured on the Nokia 7 Plus. Launching alongside the flagship will also be the curved Nokia 8110 4G feature phone which is offered in both Black and Yellow and will retail for £79.99. Rounding out Nokia’s upcoming launches will be the Nokia 1, which is the brand’s first Android Go device, but it won’t be available until May 7, i.e. three weeks after the launch of the Nokia 7 Plus.

Fans of the Nokia 1 will be able to get their hands on the device for just £79.99, and the phone will be available in both Dark Blue and Warm Red. For the price, the device features a small 4.5-inch display and is equipped with a low-end quad-core MediaTek processor that is clocked at 1.1GHz. Furthermore, 1GB of RAM is also included alongside 8GB of internal storage, although this is further expandable via a microSD card. Software-wise, the Nokia 1 ships with Android 8.0 Oreo Go in the hope of maximizing the potential of its hardware. Those who purchase the device will also be able to customize it via colorful Xpress-On rear covers sold separately.
