Nokia 8.2 with on Snapdragon 735 SoC and 5G support may come to India in 2020

Some smartphone industries like OnePlus claim that India is not ready for a 5G– enabled device whereas Nokia and Qualcomm dropped a couple of hints that point towards a 5G-enabled Nokia smartphone that will be unveiled sometime next year.

HMD Global spokesperson at the Qualcomm 5G summit in Barcelona said that they are looking to halve the price of 5G smartphones in 2020 to increase the rate of adoption. It included other conversations around Nokia’s future plans too.

In the past, Qualcomm has also teased the existence of a Nokia premium rid-ranger that will be powered by a Snapdragon 7 series mobile platform with integrated 5G. Considering that none of the current Snapdragon 7 series chipsets support 5G, this is likely to be a new unreleased chipset. 5G is going to be a big part of Qualcomm’s 2020 portfolio, and we should hear a lot more about it at the Qualcomm Tech Summit in Hawaii in December.

Rumors also suggest that the phone will be a Nokia 8.2 as it is also packed with the Snapdragon 7 series chipsets. Considering that the Nokia 8.1 is due for a refresh in the coming months, and is one of the most popular smartphones by HMD Global, the Nokia 8.2 may be the company’s affordable 5G handset.
