From the last few weeks, it was rumored that Nokia is preparing to launch its first 5G phone. And now, the company confirmed that it will be fully-revealing its 5G handset on 19 March.
The information comes from a Nokia press release announcing that the company is official phone partner of the forthcoming James Bond film No Time To Die, in which HMD Global says: “In the film, Agent Nomi utilizes the range of capabilities of the new Nokia phones portfolio, including the first-ever 5G Nokia smartphone which will be fully unveiled on 19 March.”
Nokia and Qualcomm partnered to bring an affordable 5G phone in the market that will come with the top-of-the-line specs. The new Nokia phone is expected to sit on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 platform, which has an integrated 5G modem. The same chipset is powering the Redmi K30 5G device.
Until now, Nokia has managed to wrap the specs and features inside a tight lock. However, if we consider some previous leaks, the upcoming phone will be called the Nokia 5.2. This could or could not be the 5G phone – the camera certainly looks fairly premium – but it doesn’t really fit into Nokia’s 5 series devices, which have previously been budget phones.
The running name for Nokia’s 5G phone has been the Nokia 8.2 for some time, although some think it might launch as the Nokia 8.3. However, we will get confirmation over that on March 19 when the phone will be launched officially.
