HMD Global, the Finnish home of Nokia phones, is all set to add a new member to its family. The company has confirmed on Twitter that a new Nokia smartphone will be launched on December 5. The brand has even posted a short video teasing its next product. The teaser video doesn’t reveal exact details around what Nokia has planned for next month.
HMD Global could launch Nokia 8.2 or Nokia 5.2 or Nokia 2.3
But HMD Global is widely expected to launch the successor to the Nokia 8.1 smartphone on December 5. This handset made its debut on December 5 last year, which is why the company is likely to unveil the Nokia 8.2 on the same date. To recall, the Nokia 8.1 was launched in India for Rs 26,999. It is currently available for Rs 15,999, which is the price for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.
The Nokia 8.1 packs a 6.18-inch PureDisplay IPS LED panel with 2.5D curved glass and Full-HD+ resolution of 2246×1080 pixels. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC and Adreno 616 GPU.
