Expected Specifications

At the time of writing, the details are scarce. However, previous leaks gave us a good idea of what to expect, covered by a reputable source GSMARENA. The HMD Skyline may bring a FHD+ OLED panel. This will get a buttery smooth experience thanks to the 120 Hz refresh rate. Being an upper mid-range phone, HMD will carry the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC that provides a decent performance. In the camera department, there will be a triple rear setup. A 108MP primary sensor, 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro or depth sensor will lead it. On the front, expect a 32MP selfie camera.

In the battery department, the phone may have a huge 49000mAh capacity with fast charging support of 33W. In the software department, the phone will rock Android 14 OS. Additional features include IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, an under-display fingerprint scanner, and stereo speakers.

With all the listing pages popping up, the release date is around the corner. However, the new listing page stated an estimated delivery date between August 9th and August 11th. Hence, we can expect the phone to be announced sometime in July.
