Following our previous report on HMD/Nokia’s return to the flagship arena with the Magic Max model, another mysterious Nokia phone has surfaced on the internet. Known by the codename ‘Venom,’ it boasts a 64-megapixel camera.
A post by Nokiamob reveals an image of the new device, obtained from Twitter user Hikari Calyx. The yet-to-be-released smartphone carries the codename TA-1529 and is expected to feature two SIM slots, 4GB RAM, and 128GB of storage. Its primary 64MP camera is manufactured by partner Shengtai. The launch of this product is anticipated to take place sometime this year, possibly at IFA 2023.
We speculate about an IFA launch because Nokia seems to be more active at IFA than at MWC. To be fair, they did present the Nokia G22 at MWC, a sustainable device that is easy to repair. Turning our attention back to Nokia Venom, it appears to be a polycarbonate-bodied smartphone designed with ease of repair and sustainability in mind. There are two more sensors next to the 64MP rear camera, and we expect these to be an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro or bokeh sensor.
If we were to guess, we would predict that the device houses a Snapdragon 695 CPU or its successor. This new Nokia smartphone, with its intriguing features and focus on sustainability, has certainly captured the attention of the tech community as we await more details on its official launch.
