“The Nokia smartphone with model numbers TA-1178 and TA-1196 packs NFC and supports GSM, WCDMA, and LTE bands”
A mysterious Nokia phone with model number TA-1178 has been spotted on the FCC certification. The cover letter also mentions TA-1196, suggesting that both model numbers could belong to the same smartphone. The Nokia TA-1178/TA-1196 could sport a 6.3-inch display, as confirmed from the antenna diagram. The said smartphone also packs NFC and supports GSM, WCDMA, and LTE bands. The phone will come with the support for LTE 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 28 and 66. While the exact naming of the phones isn’t known, rumours point at Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 for the international markets and these are said to launch in August.
Furthermore, the rumours suggest that the Nokia 6.2 will flaunt a 6-inch FHD+ punch-hole display and is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, paired with 6GB RAM and a 3,300mAh battery. On the other hand, Nokia 7.2 is said to feature a waterdrop notch and is also expected to come with the same Snapdragon 660 SoC and a larger 3,500mAh battery. Both the phones could also feature a 3.5mm headphone jack and pack a 48MP rear camera with 120-degree wide-angle lens. Since everything is based on rumours and speculations, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt.
Separately, Nokia 8.2 mid-range phone is tipped to be in the works. The handset is said to be the brand’s first phone to come with a 32MP pop-up selfie module. It is likely to run on the latest Android Q right out of the box and should be a part of the Android One program. The Nokia 8.2 packs 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage that might be further expandable. Unfortunately, no other details are revealed just yet, but we should know more soon.
