Nokia is working on an "economic" 5G smartphone that will be launched in 2020, along with other 5G flagships from competing manufacturers. This "value" edition, as some call it, seems to be a response to the rising prices that the next 5G phones are revealing. The 4G transition has caused many brands to increase their prices significantly, with the Note10 + 5G and the Galaxy S10 5G around $ 1,300, for everyone's response.
Nokia's Android device developer, HMD Global, expressed plans to meet the needs of the many whose wallets are not so lazy in cash. Mr. Juho Sarvikas of HMD Global made the announcement through Digital Trends and said users can expect a cheaper purchase with the next Nokia 5G phone. Its price is not yet established per se, but the developer promises that it will be approximately half the price of the current 5G smartphones announced by other manufacturers.
"We see a particular opportunity for us to bring 5G to a more affordable segment as we enter the market. I would love to meet at half the price where you have 5G today." – Sarvikas
As always is the In the case of the new technology, this next 5G hardware will start at a high price but will become cheaper quickly with time, so online sources unanimously expect models below $ 800. Qualcomm's next Snapdragon 800 series will feature a 5G modem as a built-in function, not an additional chip, which will immediately significantly reduce the price.However, due to the limited partnership that HMD currently has with the United States, Mr. Servikas could not predict whether the new 5G smartphone Nokia will arrive in the United States. The current state of affairs limits its trade to a few low-end phones, but by 2020 things can improve according to several reviews. Stas of fans online.
