Nokia and Qualcomm dropped a couple of clues that point towards a Nokia smartphone with 5G capacity that will be presented sometime next year.
At the Qualcomm 5G summit in Barcelona, the HMD Global spokesman said that they seek to cut the price of 5G smartphones in half by 2020 to increase the adoption rate. It also included other conversations about Nokia's future plans.
# 5G is about to launch much faster worldwide, and on many more devices, thanks to our #Snapdragon 7 Series mobile platform with integrated # 5G, just announced at # IFA19. https://t.co/NeSr5Yk7dp pic.twitter.com/ZK9dBjTi9z[19459008▪September62019[196590047withintegrated5GGiventhatnoneofthecurrentSnapdragon7serieschipsetssupport5Gitislikelythatitisanewunpublishedchipset5GwillbealargepartofQualcomm's2020portfolioandweshouldhearmuchmoreaboutitattheQualcommTechnologySummitinHawaiiinDecember
Some rumors suggest that the phone will be Nokia 8.2, which makes a lot of sense. The Nokia 8 series has used Snapdragon 7 series chipsets in the past, and are located just below Nokia's flagships without being so expensive . Given that the Nokia 8.1 will be updated in the coming months and is one of the most popular smartphones of HMD Global, the Nokia 8.2 may be the company's affordable 5G phone.
Details are still scarce about Nokia's next mid-range, but it must follow the same glass and metal sandwich design as most phones Nokia Instead of a notch, you will opt for a punch screen or a pop-up module for the front camera.
Speaking of cameras, we hope you will also go to a multi-camera setup like the Nokia 7.2, bringing a 64MP main camera, an ultra wide angle lens and a depth sensor. ZEISS optics should also follow.
Even MediaTek has announced its intentions of affordable 5G smartphones by 2020 and will compete with Qualcomm's next list of chipsets in mid-range smartphones, bringing 5G to new price segments.
