HMD Pulse+ Business Edition

HMD is actively releasing new phones in the market. The strategy seems to be to replace the Nokia smartphones with their own branded smartphones. Now, a new leak has arrived suggesting yet another affordable offering from HMD. It is called the HMD Ridge Pro and has some interesting choices of hardware. We will check out the currently known information about the phone however, it should be taken with a pinch of salt as it is not official yet.

HMD Ridge Pro Leaked Specifications

According to the reputable source NokiaMob, the HMD Ridge Pro will come with a 6.64-inch IPS LCD panel with an FHD+ resolution. Moreover, it will also have a high refresh rate of 120Hz ensuring a buttery smooth experience. The addition of FHD+ resolution and high refresh rate is a good choice in this range. Many manufacturers often provide an HD+ display which often results in a poor visual experience.

Gizchina News of the week

The HMD Ridge Pro is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 SoC. This is a budget-oriented chipset from Qualcomm. It features 8-cores and is based on a 4nm architecture ensuring high efficiency. This chipset should handle day-to-day tasks such as running social media apps or browsing the internet. Furthermore, the phone will have two configurations including 6/128GB and 8/256GB along with the support of a MicroSD card.

For photography, the HMD Ridge Pro features three sensors on the back. There is a 50MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, it will also have a 50MP shooter on the front.

One more highlighting feature of the phone is the big 5,500mAh battery. This battery should be sufficient for heavy users. Compared to the market, we have seen mostly phones with a 5,000mAh battery. Hence, the HMD Ridge Pro targets users with extensive usage. However, the leak has not shared any charging speed information yet.

According to the leaks, we can expect complete connectivity features like Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Moreover, it is also said to get an IP54 rating ensuring its resistance to dust and splashes. Finally, on the software side, it is tipped to come with Android 14 OS.


It is too early to conclude the HMD Ridge Pro, as it is not official yet. Also, we do not have the pricing information yet. Though, based on the above specifications, it has the potential to stand out in the budget market. We hope HMD prices this phone aggressively to attract consumers. That said, we will keep you updated whenever we have official news on the phone.
