Nokia Rumor

If you happen to be a Nokia fan, we’re sure that you have heard of the Nokia Daredevil, an upcoming device from the company that has been in the news of late. The Nokia Daredevil reportedly features a 48MP sensor with Zeiss optics and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. By the looks of it, there is a good chance that Nokia will rename the Daredevil to the Nokia 5.2 when it is officially launched later this year. This development was confirmed by a Twitter handle by the name of Nokia Anew.

Nokia 5.2: What we know so far

To start things, it is pertinent to note that the Nokia 5 series has moved a notch higher in the price segment. This move came after HMD Global replaced the Nokia 5.1 from last year with the Nokia 4. The move, it seems, was to get the Nokia 5 series to the budget segment where it will compete with the likes of the Redmi Note 7S and the Realme 3. As far as the specifications are concerned, the Nokia 5.2 is rumored to feature a 48-megapixel camera which has sort of become the norm these days for budget devices priced under INR 20K. The handset will also feature a large display with FHD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) resolution with a waterdrop notch at the top. The panel will also reportedly get the ‘Pureview’ branding.

While we do not know the RAM and storage variants yet, we can expect the handset to feature at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The camera setup on the Nokia 5.1 includes a 48MP primary sensor mated to a secondary wide-angle camera. There is a third camera as well which in most likelihood, is a depth sensor All three lenses feature premium Zeiss optics. The Nokia 5.2 is likely to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC and like the case is with Nokia devices, the handset will run a stock version of Android. As far as the battery capacity is concerned, the phone reportedly gets a 3,500 mAh battery. We do not currently know if the device supports fast charging. The handset is also likely to come with support for OZO audio.

The phone will reportedly come equipped with a 3,500mAh battery, but there is no word on support for fast charging. The camera UI shows a wide-angle option, which means one of the three rear cameras, is a wide-angle sensor.

Additionally, a tweet from Nokia anew regarding the leak states that the Nokia Daredevil might be launched as the Nokia 5.2 in the market, but there is no word as to when that will happen. Another tweet suggests that the Nokia 5.2 might come equipped with Zeiss optics, PureDisplay screen technology, and OZO audio feature that brings spatial audio with 3D recording and playback capabilities.

Nokia 5.2: Expected launch, pricing

There is no word as to when the Nokia 5.2 would be announced. There is, however, a good chance that we would see the launch happen in the next few weeks. In India, we can expect the Nokia 5.2 to be priced around the INR 12K to INR 15K mark.
