It seems that HMD is working on several phones to launch in the coming weeks. According to a recent leak, the HMD Skyline would be the most eye-catching. This device could bring back the Lumia-style design of yesteryear.

It would be powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 mid-range chipset. Its battery would be a 4,900 mAh cell with support for 33W fast charging (wired). Other potential features include an NFC chip, Bluetooth 5.2, and IP67 certification.

The rear of the HMD Skyline would integrate a triple camera system. The configuration would have a 108MP main sensor, an ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro/depth sensor. Its front camera would be a 32MP sensor. The leak even reveals the possible price of the HMD Skyline. The device would cost €400 ($429 USD or Rs. 35,917) for the 8GB + 256GB version. On the other hand, the 12GB + 256GB model would cost €440 ($472 USD or Rs. 39,508).

HMD Atlas and HMD Ridge leaked too

The company would also be working on other, more affordable models. One of them would be the HMD Atlas, which would have a more humble IPS LCD screen. The 6.64″ display would support Full HD+ resolution and 120 Hz. This model would use the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chip, along with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage.

The other leaked device is the HMD Ridge. The source claims that it will have a 6.64″ IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution, 90 Hz support, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. This model would use the old Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ chipset. It would be available in multiple variants with 4 GB, 6 GB, or 8 GB of RAM.
