Nokia 8.2 is reportedly coming as the successor to HMD Global’s Nokia 8.1. The most interesting highlight of the Nokia 8.2 is that it will support 5G connectivity.
Reports have it that this device will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 735 chipset. This is interesting, considering many recently launched devices opted for Snapdragon 855+. Some of these include the OnePlus 7T Pro, the nubia Red Magic 3s, and the Black Shark 2 Pro.
The Snapdragon 735 chipset that the Nokia 8.2 will feature will be a successor to the Snapdragon 730. It may be based on a 7nm process for better power efficiency. According to Nokiapoweruser, this chipset will bring the next-generation AI Engine. It will come with improvements to performance and gaming. These are likely areas that HMD is considering in making the decision to go for the 735 in the Nokia 8.2.
We expect the Nokia 8.2 5G to come in three variants. We will likely get it in 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. This would make it the first Nokia phone to debut with 8GB RAM. It will run Android Q out of the box.
Some of the leaks and rumors of the Nokia 8.2 5G suggest a premium build. it will reportedly come with a quad-camera setup on the rear. This may include a 64MP primary shooter. The phone is also tipped to come with a 32MP pop-up camera. This would also be the first time we’re seeing a pop-up camera on a phone from HMD Global.
HMD Global launched the Nokia 8.1 last year, but we do not yet have word on the launch date of the Nokia 8.2.
