HMD Global’s next budget Nokia smartphone may have just leaked
Mobile World Congress 2020 is right around the corner and we expect smartphone OEMs to showcase their latest devices over the course of the trade show. While a couple of OEMs have already revealed plans to launch new devices or talk about new solutions at the event, most others have remained tight-lipped. We already know that Honor is expected to launch the Honor 9X Pro and View 30 Pro at the event, LG is expected to showcase the LG V60 ThinQ and LG G9 ThinQ, Motorola might showcase the previously leaked Moto G8, Moto G8 Power, and the Moto G Stylus, and Realme could launch the Realme X50 5G along with a Snapdragon 865-powered flagship device. HMD Global will also be present at the event this year and leaks suggest that the company could launch a couple of devices under the Nokia brand name.
Even though the HMD Global has revealed no information about any upcoming devices, famed leakster @evleaks has now shared images of a budget Nokia device that might be launched at the event. The images (seen below) showcase a device that is reminiscent of Nokia devices from the past. It features a tall display with a teardrop-style notch at the top and a significant chin at the bottom with the Nokia branding. On the back, it has a circular camera module with a total of four sensors and a dual-LED flash in the center. Right beneath that is a circular fingerprint sensor with the Nokia branding below it. If you look closely, you can also make out a power button and volume rocker on the right edge of the device.
According to the tweet, the leaked Nokia device is codenamed Nokia Captain America, which could possibly be the Nokia 5.2. The device will feature 6GB of RAM, coupled with 64GB of internal storage, and will be priced at $180. The tweet also suggests that the leaked device could be launched on March 4th, which further confirms an MWC 2020 announcement. As of now, HMD Global has released no information about the device, but we expect to learn more in the weeks leading up to MWC 2020.
