A mystery smartphone going by the name, Nokia TA-1071 has cleared the FCC. Dimensions of the phone and a few other connectivity features have been revealed. HMD Global is all set to “surprise” us at the Mobile World Congress this year and this may be a part of that surprise.
The design looks nothing like any of the recently released Nokia smartphones. The design is not exactly boxy, rather it has very distinct curved edges, making the frame look fat. Judging from the dimensions which are 136 x 134 x 50mm, the mystery phone might have a 5.2 inch display. It might be a full screen display since the diagonal length is only 5.35 inches.
Other features that have leaked include the placement of the Bluetooth and WLAN antennas. Other than that the Nokia TA-1071 will have support for 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 2.4GHz single band WiFi and the usual set of connectivity bands. From the given details, we can guess that this will be an affordable smartphone by Nokia. Neither HMD nor Nokia has mentioned any affordable phone that is under development or will be revealed any time soon, so this comes as quite a surprise. Clearly, Nokia is keeping things under tight wraps and not letting a lot of information regarding this device out. Hopefully we’ll get to know more about the mystery Nokia-TA-1071 in the coming days.
