Nokia launched a flagship phone back in 2019 in the form of the Nokia 9 Pureview. Many Nokia fans were eager for the next flagship device from Nokia but it never really came to the market. In 2020, we had several Nokia launching in different markets but none of them was flagship devices. Finally, now reports are coming in about another Penta-camera Nokia smartphone.
This upcoming smartphone won’t be a successor to the Nokia 9 Pureview. Instead, it will be a successor to the Nokia 8.3 5G smartphone, which is an upper-midrange smartphone. This new device won’t be called the Nokia 8.4 5G. Instead, it is expected to be an X-series smartphone. As for the naming, there are reports claiming that this upcoming Nokia device will be called the Nokia X50.
This upcoming Nokia handset will feature a 6.5-inch QHD+ display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. As mentioned above, we will have a Penta camera setup at the rear for this new smartphone. In the Penta setup, there will be a 108MP primary sensor, an ultrawide sensor, a depth sensor, a telephoto sensor and a macro shooter. The sensor size for these other sensors is not yet known by any Sources.
As for the processor, Nokiapoweruser reported that the upcoming Nokia X50 handset will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G, which is not yet announced. The model number of the chipset came out SM7350 in benchmarking sites which is a model number similar to the Snapdragon 780G, which was launched recently as an upgrade over the Snapdragon 765G. So there is still a fair amount of confusion as to whether we will see the Snapdragon 775G or the Snapdragon 780G in this new upcoming Nokia smartphone.
There were also rumours about a 6,000 mAh battery Nokia smartphone. On a TUV certification website, a Nokia smartphone popped up with a 6,000 mAh battery capacity and support for 22.5W fast charging. A 6,000 mAh battery for an Android device with a QHD+ panel running at 120 Hz is only decently enough.
As for the rest of the details, we can expect Nokia to work with ZEISS optics and OZO audio technology on this new phone, much like the other older Nokia smartphones.
