HMD Global (a firm behind Nokia phones) has confirmed it will launch its first 5G phone on March 19, ahead of its appearance in the upcoming James Bond movie, No Time to Die.
You can catch a glimpse of the new 5G phone (which may be rumored to be the Nokia 10) in a 90-second teaser video where agent Nomi (played by Lashana Lynch) uses the Google Assistant to bring photos, navigation directions and send text messages. using her voice. We can say that she does not have time to dial. (ahem)
We already knew there was a Nokia phone to launch next after HMD Global posted a bond-themed teaser, and it's likely we'll see more than just a new 5G phone announced at the event with previous launches from the firm bringing in several new devices.
- The 5g phone can be nokia 10
- There are many 5G phones already available
- The Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 3310 will also be featured in the film
What do we know about the Nokia 5G phone?
While only official details about the upcoming handset, it will have 5G support, we can glean more information from the teaser video.
Agent Nomi says "36 hours into the chase and we're still going strong" as the camera clicks in the corner of the phone's screen where the battery level reads 20%. It's a clear nod to a potential two-day battery life, which hopefully means the new Nokia 5G phone packs in great battery life.
It also shows us the new 5G phone is a set for a centralized notch screen for the selfie camera. The phone appears to have a large display that takes up most of the front, but there is a small chin housing the Nokia logo.
We get a look at the back of the phone too, with a large, round camera bumper seemingly housing four clustered cameras around a central flash.
Under the camera protrusion, the rear fingerprint scanner can be seen, and there looks like a headphone jack on the top edge of the phone, and the power button and volume rocker on the right, and the quick launch key on the left.
A shot from the camera app shows a macro lens as well as icons for standard lens shooting and wide angle. Below the icons, the number of modes are clear, including photo, portrait, video and night.
Unsurprisingly, the Nokia 5G appears to be running relatively stock Android - like the world's HMD way - and from a couple of shots from the handset, it could have a tall, 21:9 aspect ratio display.
We will know all the details, and the official name of the device, at Nokia's launch event on March 19th. Until then, you can continue to interrogate the witness, it's a pity, video.
