HMD has launched a slew of Nokia phones this year, most of which fall in the budget to mid-range segments. The company is yet to announce a true 2018 flagship Nokia phone, and with just a few more months to go before the year comes to a close, one expects that a flagship is just around the corner. Now, a new Nokia phone has been spotted on China’s 3C certification site, which suggests this could be the high-end Nokia phone we have been waiting for.The Nokia phone comes with a model number TA-1131, and there is some expectation that this could be the rumoured Nokia 9 flagship.
