Nokia announces IFA 2019 press conference; new phones expected
The Finland-based brand will be holding a press conference in Berlin at 4:00 pm CET/11:00 am EDT/8:00 am PDT on Thursday, September 5. It hasn’t yet revealed what kind of announcements are in store and instead told customers to “stay tuned.” Nevertheless, recent leaks and rumors could provide good indication.
While successors to the Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 6.1 were technically due in January and May, HMD Global appears to have been rethinking its product refresh cycle. The company itself hasn’t yet confirmed the existence of a Nokia 5.2 and Nokia 6.2 but multiple reports do suggest they’re on the way and IFA 2019 could potentially be the perfect place to introduce them.
Accompanying these two devices may also be the Nokia 7.2. Its predecessor wasn’t announced until October but the new model apparently shares its exterior with the Nokia 6.2, therefore making a joint unveiling very likely. It’s unclear at this stage if the Nokia brand has any other smartphones up its sleeves for the near future.
