Nokia has started to send out invitations to an event held at Mobile World Congress next month. Nokia hasn’t had a strong showing in Barcelona for several years, but that could all change this year, if the rumors regarding its hardware line-up come true.

The Finnish company has made sure it’ll get the good news out early too, and has scheduled its get-together for 8:30am local time on the trade show’s very first day. The invite gives nothing away with its decidedly cryptic, “Meet us under the tree,” headline, while the text provides only the time, date, location, and a promise to tell us more about the firm’s “activities” as the time nears.

Nokia MWC InviteNokia’s last event was in October, when it revealed the Lumia 1520, Lumia 1320, and the Lumia 2520 tablet. It came at a time when the company was grabbing headlines for a different reason, thanks to Microsoft’s acquisition of its Devices division. The sale has yet to be 100 percent finalized, and judging from the invitation to the MWC event, there are still more Nokia-branded devices to come.

There are up to four new smartphones expected from Nokia, including a new flagship phone named the Lumia 1820, plus a pair of Lumia 1520 variants. In the past, rumors of a smaller tablet named the Lumia 2020 were spread, but there is a chance this has been canceled. Another possibility is an international version of the Lumia Icon, which is currently only likely to be released on the Verizon network, plus the Nokia Normandy.

The Normandy is probably the most anticipated device, as it’s rumored to use a heavily modified version of Android, rather than Windows Phone, as its operating system. The specification probably won’t impress though, as it may replace the existing Asha range, which runs on the aging Series 40 platform.

We’ll bring you all the news from Nokia’s press event on February 24 as it happens.

It's been just a few days since Apple released the first developer preview of iOS 18. Since then, developers and everyday users have discovered features in the first iOS 18 beta that Apple didn't mention in its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024) keynote. The most recent discovery concerns what happens when your iPhone's battery becomes exhausted.

Apple iPhones have a power reserve feature that conserves a small amount of battery life to support essential functions like Find My and NFC unlocking when the battery is nearly depleted. In iOS 18, the feature appears to be extended.
