Tomislav Himbele, Head of Marketing for Eastern Europe at HMD Global, recently stated that the company aims to see Nokia in the top three in the next three years.
To achieve that, or come anywhere near that result, the company will have to invest a lot of money, but also launch a flagship that can be competitive with other strong phones in the market.
Nokia's Snapdragon 835 powered flagship has been rumored for a while, and it is believed that the device will be named the Nokia 9.

Other features should include 3,800 mAh battery support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4, fingerprint sensor, and iris scanner. The phone should also have IP68 certificate.
