Ever since HMD Global took over the reigns at Nokia, the Finnish smartphone maker gotten back its prominence in the smartphone segment with a catalogue that ranges from entry-level handsets to high-end smartphones that compete head-to-head. Months after launching its 2018 budget smartphones line, Nokia seems to be working on yet another entry-level device as recent documentations suggest.
Codenamed as “Bravo”, the upcoming Nokia phone bears the model number TA-1120 and has already been cleared by the FCC. Spotted first by AndroidHeadlines, the Nokia device will come running with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo on a 16:9 display, which kind of confirms its budget nature.
Digging in further, the FCC filing indicated that Nokia “Bravo” will come with LTE connectivity as well as WiFi and Bluetooth but will lack NFC which expected since this is touted as an entry-level handset. There will be a miniature 32GB worth of internal memory added to the Nokia device. The lack of onscreen buttons on the screenshots suggest there will be physical or capacitive button provide for navigation, though gesture-based controls are also likely to be added.
AT this moment, it’s unclear whether HMD will be launching the Nokia Bravo alongside the Nokia X5 but it needs to be pointed out that the label in the listing aims for a product specific for the Latin American region. But if emerging markets are what HMD is targeting, it won’t be long till the device hits the Indian market.
