HMD To Unveil Nokia 2 And Another Smartphone; Two Nokia Phones Receive CCC Certification
HMD Global made splashes recently and we like what we see. A recent announcement of theirs revealed that we are due to see the Nokia 2 . This is an important piece of information. It shows Nokia’s will to experiment and test out the market. Not many smartphone manufacturers dare to release an entry-level device. If someone is bold enough to do so, then it’s surely the Finnish tech giant.
Thanks to a few scoops by trusted insiders, we have additional info about the plans HMD Global is cooking up. One of these plans is that there will be additional Nokia releases. This may be of importance, as it is our only Nokia-related scoop recently. The company is notorious for its lack of leaks and a strict press release policy. Because of that, any info is valuable.
It’s time to take a closer look at the rumors and speculations surrounding new CCC certified phones. New entry-level? Stellar flagships? Or maybe even some strange experimental devices? Nobody knows, but we’re sorting out the available info. Let’s see.
HMD Global is now in charge of manufacturing the new line of Android-powered Nokia phones. So far, they’ve fought valiantly. We can say that we like the effort and the reviews back up our opinion. Through testing and opinions, it’s safe to say the Nokia 8 is a good sign of things to come in the future? What things, exactly? Well, it’s an excellent question.
The only confirmed pieces of info are the Android 8.0 Oreo update testing. Things are looking good and we may be able to see the implementation of the new OS soon. In fact, things are going so well that it may follow Samsung as the first manufacturer to pull off the actual switch.
Now, the excitement for both the Nokia 2.0 and the Android 8.0 Oreo has settled. Our attention is now enamored with the confirmation of a CCC certification of two new Nokia phones. The company is staying as silent as ever, but a few scoops might be able to give a story outline.
Nobody knows for sure what the future holds
A CCC certification is a mandatory permission to sell a product in the People’s Republic of China. This is a compulsory, multi-stage testing process for any foreign product wanting to enter the market.
The announcements are transparent. That’s how we’ve found out that Nokia has registered two new devices for a possible pre-sale. Their register numbers are TA-1041 and TA-1042. Several Twitter analysts predicted that these phones will most likely have the quick charge feature. It’s a big plus for every future model.
A feature such as that one means two things. Firstly, that Nokia had much success in the running year and that they want to continue at an increased pace. Secondly, it means that a new flagship device is on its way. Fast charging is not a part of the Nokia 2 device, meaning we’re not in for an entry-level phone.
A possible date and a glimmer of hope
HMD’s plans are always shrouded in secrecy. The company prides themselves on product privacy and hesitates to share unnecessary info. In these cases, tipsters like Roland Quandt are our only hope. HMD personally revealed the Nokia 2 release date on October 5. It’s merely days away and we can strap ourselves in for the big announcement.
Why is this date important? Well, simply because such an important reveal requires a whole event to break the news. That is an excellent excuse to build up the hype. Hype building is best when you pair a reveal with multiple announcements. Such a method has been Apple’s MO for years. It’s a successful way to set the ground and we can see HMD Global following it.
What to expect from the device?
Let’s say, hypothetically, that the rumors are true. This means that it will be an announcement concerning two different devices. One will most likely contain an innovative feature or two. Our bet is that the other one will be an updated Nokia 8 model for the Chinese market. Be how it may be, we’re going to be on the edge of our seats for the next several days.
