The year is almost over but Nokia has one last surprise up its sleeves for us. The HMD Global-run brand has announced
a new event to be held on December 5 where it’ll announce the “newest addition” to its smartphone lineup.
Nokia hasn’t revealed which device will be making an appearance on the day but it’s very possible the Nokia 8
.2 could be the subject of the event. Last year, the brand decided to announce the Nokia 8.1
on December 5 so it makes perfect sense for its replacement to debut exactly twelve months later.
Reports suggest the Nokia 8.2 will feature a Snapdragon 700-series processor paired with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A bezel-less LCD display accompanied by a pop-out selfie camera system should complete the setup alongside a circular module on the back that’s home to a 64-megapixel primary sensor. A 5G version of this phone may arrive at MWC 2020 in February.
If the Nokia 8.2 fails to make an appearance next month, Nokia may instead announce the budget Nokia 2
.3 or perhaps even a red variant of the well-received Nokia 7.2
. Until the actual date, though, the company's plans will remain quite the mystery.
