Alleged Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2 and More Models Pass Through Bluetooth SIG Certification


As many as eight Nokia models have been spotted on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group website this morning. These new models are very likely the handsets that are reportedly launching at the IFA 2019 event where Nokia will be going live today. The model numbers are TA-1178, TA-1181, TA-1187, TA-1193, TA-1196, and TA-1198. These along with two more TA-1200 and TA-1201 make a total of eight models. Although, do note that these don’t necessarily mean there will be eight devices.

Identifying the model numbers, the TA-1187 as well as the Nokia TA-1178, TA-1181 and TA-1196, have previously been seen on the FCC and they likely belong to the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2. As for the TA-1200 and TA-1193, at least one of the two models is, hopefully, the Nokia 5.2.

Now, it’s very likely that we will see all the three handsets at the launch event today so there’s little time for readers to wait for official specifications and design. However, based on previous leaks, the Nokia 7.2 will be the most premium of these unreleased handsets with a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch and it’s expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 while the Nokia 6.2 could be endowed with a Snapdragon 660 SoC. In terms of design, both handsets are expected to have similar builds with circular camera cutouts on the rear where the Nokia 7.2 will have a triple camera setup consisting of a 48MP primary sensor.

As for the Nokia 5.2, it will succeed the Nokia 5.1 and being the lowest-end model is rumoured to be powered by a Snapdragon 632 SoC with 4GB of RAM and HD+ display. Nokia has mostly been silent in a year of super-active Chinese OEMs where the market has seen upgrades for the same series in just a matter of six months in many cases.
