Nokia has another budget smartphone in the works
A 6-inch display, Android 10, and an 8MP camera
Known as the Nokia TA-1258 at the moment, the smartphone in question reportedly features a 5.99-inch display complete with a HD+ (1440 x 720p) resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The latter explains the thick bezels both above and below the display rather than a notch.
That will be backed by an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz and 3GB of RAM. The choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage will also be made available, although it’s unclear if microSD card support is planned.
Like other Nokia smartphones, this particular model will ship with stock Android 10 pre-installed as part of the Android One program. HMD Global has an impressive history when it comes to timely software updates, so an update to Android 11 is very likely.
The Nokia TA-1258, which will be marketed under a different name, should be announced later this year. As revealed by a recent TENAA listing, it will also be the first Nokia smartphone to launch in China since the Nokia X71 in April 2019.
