Nokia India Announces a New Smartphone Launch on September 6

According to the above video teaser posted by the brand on X, a new 5G smartphone is set to debut in India on September 6. We can see the silhouette of the upcoming phone in the video. The device seems to be sporting curved edges for an ergonomic grip. Apart from the launch date and the support for 5G, the company has not revealed any other device details.
