Nokia 8.2 5G is in the headlines again. This smartphone could be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 735 chipset. This smartphone is said to be the next major phone from HMD Global. This smartphone will come with 5G support. The new report states that the Nokia 8.2 will only arrive in the 5G version. This smartphone may launch at upper mid-range phone. The report claims that the Nokia 8.2 may launch in two variants such as 4G LTE edition and 5G variant.
This smartphone may debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 in February next year in tech trade show not in December as previously contemplated. The 4G version of the Nokia 8.2 was expected to launch in December, which made sense considering the Nokia 8.1 launched in the same month last year.
HMD Global has already confirmed, that the Nokia 5G smartphones aim to reach a wider audience. The Nokia 8 series is supposed to be HMD’s value flagship line, so it makes sense to see a Nokia 8.1 successor launch with 5G support. A non-5G Nokia 8.2 would have been nice to see in India next month considering HMD has been very quiet this year. The company has only launched the premium Nokia 9 PureView and a few affordable mid-range phones like the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2. A value flagship like the Nokia 8.2 would have allowed HMD to compete in the sub Rs 30,000 category in India right now.
