Nokia is seen shifting its focus from the mid-range and high-end smartphone market to the affordable and feature phone market. There are quite a few Nokia smartphones in the mid-range market, but a recent teaser on Nokia India confirms a 5G phone launch in India on September 6, 2023.
The specifics about the device are not revealed yet, but it is teased with a video that asks “Are you ready to experience speed?” The round corner of the smartphone is highlighted in the video. It is quite hard to guess the device as there’s no leak about the upcoming Nokia 5G smartphone. Even, there’s not a single leak that could shed some light on what we are expecting on September 6. However, we believe it to be a new X series smartphone as the launch date is matching last year’s launch of the Nokia X30.
Nokia is diligently working to launch new feature phones and affordable smartphones. The company recently introduced some additional color variants of the Nokia C12 and 2660 Flip.
The last 5G smartphone launched by an HMD-owned company is the Nokia X30 5G. It houses a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 700 nits of maximum brightness. The HD+ display offers 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 695 SoC coupled with an Adreno 619 GPU. It is available in three storage variants – 128GB + 6GB RAM, 128GB + 8GB RAM, and 256GB + 8 GB RAM.
In the camera section, there’s a dual-rear camera with a 50MP primary sensor and a 13MP ultrawide lens. A 16MP sits on the front for selfies and video calling.
