HMD Global has had to push back several launches due to the global pandemic but now the company is poised to unveil the new Nokia-branded smartphones and feature phones.
Nokia recently tweeted a teaser for the launch of its new smartphones in the India market and besides these, the company is going to make an addition to its “basic phones” category with a new feature phone that will feature 4G connectivity.
According to GizChina, Nokia India is going to reveal new devices on August 25, and going by all reports and leaks, the Nokia C3 is going to make its debut here along with a new feature phone. While Nokia is expected to launch a few more feature phones this year, for now here’s a look at the new 4G feature phone thanks to the renders and details that have surfaced online.
One of the leaked devices is a new variant of the Nokia 215. This might be launched as the Nokia 215 (2020) or Nokia 215 4G and it might be the most affordable 4G phone in Nokia’s portfolio so far. This feature phone is expected to launch without a camera.
The next feature phone in line is the Nokia 225, as per the renders. The Nokia 225 will come with 4G LTE and is going to support apps like YouTube and Facebook.
According to reports from NokiaMob, the Nokia 225 has received FCC approval with model numbers TA-1316 and TA-1282. The date on the display suggests that the feature phones were scheduled to launch on August 3 but HMD Global has to postpone the launch thanks to the pandemic.
The third feature phone does not have a name yet but it carries the Nokia Leo Basic codename. This feature phone is expected to come with WhatsApp and Facebook support. And this is the phone that’s supposed to come with a dedicated Google Assistant button. All the three feature phones Nokia has lined up are going to come with KaiOS.
Details about pricing and exact launch are still not available, so we’ll have to wait and watch.
