A 90-second video teasing the company's upcoming phones will be released later this week, featuring Lashana Lynch, who plays Agent Nomi in the upcoming James Bond movie. Along with the company's first 5G phone, the movie will also feature the mid-range Nokia 7.2 and the Nokia 3310 4G feature phone.
While we will have to wait until March 8 for the video teaser, the folks at TechRadar have shared a few screenshots from an "early preview." The screenshots reveal the phone will come with a waterdrop notch display. At the back of the phone will be a circular camera bump housing a total of four camera sensors and an LED flash. The 5G-enabled phone will also sport a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack on the top edge.
In addition to the first Nokia 5G phone, the Finnish company is also expected to introduce the Nokia 5.2 and entry-level Nokia 1.3 at the event.
The Nokia 7.2 is a mid-range Android One phone with an impressive 6.3-inch HDR display, triple rear cameras, and decent battery life. Since it is an Android One device, it offers a clean user experience and is guaranteed to receive two major OS upgrades.
