Multiple Nokia Smartphone Models Get Bluetooth SIG Certification Ahead of HMD Global’s Launch Event This Month

Two variants of the Nokia 7.1 Plus have shown up on the Bluetooth Launch Studio website ahead of HMD Global's launch event in India on October 11.


Nokia’s latest mid-range Android smartphone, the Nokia 7.1 was launched at an event held in London last week. HMD Global is expected to launch the “Plus” variant of the Nokia 7.1 at an event in New Delhi on October 11, i.e. this Thursday. The Finnish company is also holding an event in China on October 16 to unveil a new X-series smartphone. Ahead of the launch event, two variants of the upcoming Nokia 7.1 Plus have been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, alongside a few other unannounced Nokia smartphones.

Multiple Upcoming Nokia Smartphones Receive Bluetooth Certification

The Nokia 7.1 Plus variants certified by the Bluetooth SIG include the TA-1113 and the TA-1115. In addition to the Nokia 7.1 Plus variants, the agency has also certified the Nokia TA-1118, TA-1117, TA-1104, and TA-1125 models. There are no details available regarding the hardware specifications of these models at this point and nor do we know their marketing names. More details are expected to become available once these models receive the TENAA certification in China. Since they have been certified by the Bluetooth SIG now, it shouldn’t take very long for that to happen. As you would expect from a modern smartphone, all the models listed on the Bluetooth Launch Studio website support for 4G LTE networks.
