HMD is reportedly launching the Xenon and Ridge smartphones, both taking design cues from the iconic Nokia Lumia series. Here's what we know so far.

Remember the Nokia Lumia? HMD Global's New Phones Might Just Take You Back!

Remember the HMD Atlas, Nighthawk, and Skyline we heard about earlier? Well, it seems those weren't the only phones HMD Global has been secretly working on. Leaker @smashx_60 just dropped some juicy details about two more devices – the 'Ridge' and the 'Xenon' – and one of them has 'Lumia revival' written all over it.

HMD Ridge: Mid-Range Muscle in a Colorful Package

The HMD Ridge seems to be gunning for the mid-range market, but don't let that fool you – this phone might just pack a punch. Rumors suggest a Snapdragon 480 Plus chipset, a beefy 5,000 mAh battery, and RAM options going all the way up to 8GB! Storage options are said to be 128GB or 256GB, and there's even a fancy 'Deluxe Edition' in the works.

And that's not all – get ready for a 6.64-inch IPS display with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. As for the camera, whispers suggest a 50MP primary shooter and an 8MP front-facing camera.

HMD Xenon: A Blast from the Past?

Now, for the moment you've been waiting for. The HMD Xenon is rumored to be HMD Global's love letter to the iconic Nokia Lumia design. That's right, those sleek curves and vibrant colors might just be making a comeback!

But it's not just about looks – this phone is rumored to pack some serious camera power, featuring a 108MP primary camera with OIS (just like the rumored HMD Nighthawk). Powering the Xenon will be either a Snapdragon 695 or a juiced-up Snapdragon 6s Gen 3 chipset. In fact, @smashx_60 now believes that the leaked images we saw earlier might actually be the Xenon, not the Nighthawk.

Could this mean the Nighthawk is cancelled? We'll have to wait and see. For now, we're keeping our fingers crossed for an official HMD Xenon release date soon!
