New Nokia phones keep leaking, ahead of their potential unveiling at MWC 2018. This time we are treated to an FCC certified model, codenamed TA-1048. The device appears in the sketches below and we have some theories about its real identity: a feature phone.
We already know that Nokia may bring a Nokia 9 flagship to MWC 2018 and it surely has prepared a Nokia 8 Sirocco for unveiling, plus the Nokia 7 Plus. Several feature phones may also debut, including resurrected Asha devices, Xpress-On models and maybe an international version of the Nokia 3310 (2017) 4G. The newcomer, Nokia TA-1048 may just end up as the 4G Nokia 3310, which was just available in China till now.
All we know from official documents is that the handset is going to come with GSM/WCDMA/LTE support and dual SIM slots. Since those are microSIM card slots, it’s clear we are dealing with a feature phone, not a smartphone, since most modern devices have nanoSIM slots. A microSD card slot is also here and don’t be surprised if we see a model like the Nokia C3 get revived, QWERTY keyboard and all.
Nokia 7 Plus has got to be most interesting newcomer they have ready for MWC and I can’t wait to see its final version. Those gold/copper accents are mesmerizing.
