The Nokia 5.2 is the Captain America of Nokia smartphones

The Nokia 5.2 is the Captain America of Nokia smartphones
HMD Global is expected to unveil several new smartphones at MWC 2020 in late February. The Nokia 5.2 is one of them and it has just leaked courtesy of tipster Evan Blass.

The Nokia 5.2 is codenamed Captain America


Following in the footsteps of virtually every recent Nokia-branded smartphone, the upcoming device, which is codenamed Captain America, features a 6.2-inch notched display on the front that’s coupled with pretty average bezels and a slightly larger chin which incorporates Nokia branding. 

The back of the phone seems to be carved out of plastic and incorporates a quadruple-camera setup. This is rather surprising considering previous rumors – the phone was expected to feature two cameras – but suggests HMD Global is trying to adopt a more aggressive strategy. 

Powering the smartphone will reportedly be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632. According to Evan Blass, it should also feature an impressive 64GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM. Stock Android 10 as part of the Android One program should ensure a snappy experience.

The Nokia 6.2 will go official on Sunday, February 23, ahead of a release on Wednesday, March 4. HMD Global looks set to price the phone at $180 in the United States, which falls in line with previous rumors of a €169 price tag for Europe.

Impressive 64gb when many mid range inexpensive phones now come with 128gb?

Hideous camera bump. Nokia sure likes copying Motorola these days but failed big time. Pls change your design language.

Plastic is great - Nokia? No.

Good thing it's being released in the U.S. because the code-name would sure be ironic otherwise.

Are you being sarcastic about the plastic? Otherwise like you, plastic doesn't bother me. And IMO Nokia used to do it the best with the lumia line.

I am not! I think glass is actually incredibly stupid as a phone material, except for the screen, of course. Plastic makes the most sense. Durable, and antennas still work through it.
