The dimensions revealed by the FCC are 161.24 x 76.24mm which is close to the dimensions of the Nokia 3.2 that measures 159.4 x 76.2mm, simply judging from its footprint. The battery was exposed to be of 4,000mAh capacity. The FCC filing also confirms that the Nokia TA-1182 will support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz and Bluetooth 5.0. The other possibility is that the handset could be a successor of the Nokia 5.1. The budget handset was launched in May last year with a 5.5-inch LCD display with Full-HD+ resolution, a MediaTek Helio P18 octa-core processor, and a 16MP rear camera. The TA-1183 model was accompanied by another TA-1152 model at the Bluetooth SIG which could be a variant of the same model. Either way, the handset seems to be headed to the US and we’ll know more about it soon.
