As we all know, currently HMD Global only sells a single 5G smartphone in the form of Nokia 8.3 5G, which is also known as Nokia 8 V 5G UW with mmWave support in the US. This count may soon increase to five by the end of 2021 as the company is reported to release four 5G smartphones in 2021.
The information regarding the arrival of these four new Nokia-branded 5G smartphones comes from the sources of NokiaPowerUser. According to the publication, these devices will not be launched together. Instead, two of them will debut in the first half of 2021, followed by the other two in the second half.
As of now, the exact names of these handsets are not known. But NPU speculates them to be the successors of Nokia 5.4, Nokia 7.3, Nokia 8.3, and Nokia 9 PureView. Hence, they could end up as the following models – Nokia 5.5 5G, Nokia 7.4 5G, Nokia 8.4 5G, and Nokia 9.x PureView.
The publication also states that Nokia 7.4 5G should be one of the two smartphones releasing in the first half of the year. It suggests it be powered by the newly announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC. However, it does talk about the recently leaked Nokia 6.3/6.4, which we think is a strong contender to launch early as its design is already out.
