Nokia is working on a gaming smartphone

19 September 2018
The Indian division teased on all its social media accounts that a phone to #GameOn is coming.

Sort by:

WOW. Looks like Razer is going to have a lot of competition. First it's ZTE with the Nubia Red Magic, then Xiaomi with the Black Shark. Next is Asus with the ROG Phone, then Samsung is reportedly working on a gaming phone, Huawei announced their intentions to make a gaming phone next and now Nokia wants to take a crack in that market too.

This is gonna be just like Nokia N81 with N-Gage!!

Let me guess, "water-cooled" will be mentioned in the press conference once they become official.

More of a better heatsink than advanced cooling.

I recall Nokia 8 having one but I don't know if it has liquid cooling or only copper pipes.

Homer-Simpson, 19 Sep 2018The current HMD Nokia is a brand totally disappointing in ... moreI find that all devices have a strong Nokia signiture. Especially those cameras in the middle. Nobody innovated more then 5 years now and suddenly Everbody screems about "no innovation" at Nokia. No... notches, more ram, more cpu power and stupid mimiking faces are not innovations! Nor a face detection sensor is. Hmd is a small company, it need more time and money actually to start innovating again

The current HMD Nokia is a brand totally disappointing in designs and contributions to the Android market.
It does not bring anything new, it only copies designs that already exist and it has become a vulgar brand that does not look like Symbian's Nokia, which was innovative and full of surprises with spectacular designs.
Even with Microsoft they had a spectacular project called McLaren that was unjustifiably canceled.
Now it's a totally boring brand, and it also sells little because I do not see anyone on the street with a Nokia phone.

Lightning McQueen, 19 Sep 2018Most likely the gaming phone would be either the Nokia 9 or... moreThe return of the Taco Phone!

I hope that gaming phone doesn't just mean a SD 845 and few gimmicks. It ain't a gaming phone without some form of dedicated game controller, I miss my Xperia Play. I have better hopes from Nokia, considering they started it all with Nokia Ngage.

Hey guys check my favorites

A gaming phone would be great especially today when all other oem are making phones that appeal to women.

Well, if this gaming phone feature everything I want in (SD card slot, 3.5 jack, Stereo speakers, big battery, small bezels, no notch and flat screen) I'll definitely get one

The fact that it comes from Nokia India means It will be the Nokia 5.1+ (X5) because they announced that 5.1+ will go on sale in India on October. I don't think any device gonna launch.
