Nokia announces MWC 2020 press event, but what will it launch?
HMD Global has scheduled a press event for MWC 2020 where it’s expected to launch a number of Nokia phones. The event will take place on February 23 at 4PM local time (10AM ET). Meanwhile, MWC officially starts on February 24.
As you can see in the image above, the press invite for the Nokia event does not reveal much except for the date and time [the venue is redacted – ed]. However, we have some idea of what to expect from the house of HMD.
Nokia 9.2 PureView
It’s unlikely that we’ll witness the launch of a flagship Nokia phone at MWC 2020.
HMD has apparently delayed the so-called Nokia 9.2 PureView due to a last minute call on replacing an older chipset with the latest Snapdragon 865 flagship SoC.
HMD Global previously confirmed a new 5G-ready smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 765G. The phone is reportedly called the Nokia 8.2 5G. Leaked details of the device suggest a glass-unibody design with a metallic frame.
The phone is expected to get a 6.2 inch IPS LCD display with HDR 10+ support.
It could house a 64MP quad rear camera setup with ZEISS optics and a 32MP selfie shooter.
The Nokia 8.2 5G is tipped to cost €459 (~$505). At this price, it will be one of the cheapest 5G phones out there.
Aside from the Nokia 8.2 5G, we could also see the launch of the affordable Nokia 5.2 at MWC. Leaked specs of the phone include: a dated Snapdragon 632 chipset, a 6.2-inch LCD display, 16MP + 8MP dual primary cameras, an 8MP selfie shooter, and a 3,500mAh battery.
The Nokia 5.2 is expected to come with a price tag of €169 (~$186).
The Nokia 1.3 is apparently an entry-level phone with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It could be Nokia’s 2020 Android Go phone running the Android 10 (Go Edition) update. Rumor has it that the device will run on a MediaTek chipset.
Besides the three smartphones, Nokia could also launch a feature phone and a fitness wearable at the event.
