The Nokia 5.2, and every new Android One-based Nokia phone to launch this year, should ship with stock Android 10 out of the box. The leak also revealed the handset would arrive with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage and has a codename, Captain America. The Nokia 5.2 is tipped to hit stores on March 4th with a price tag of $180 (around Rs 12,900). Earlier rumours suggested the phone would be powered by the Snapdragon 632 SoC, flaunt a 6.2-inch display and an 8MP snapper on the front.
