HMD Global (the company behind Nokia phones) has confirmed that it will launch its first 5G phone on March 19 before it appears in the upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die.
In the 90-second video teaser in which Agent Nomi, from TechRadar – played by Lashana Lynch – uses Google, you can take a look at the new 5G handset (which is rumored to be Nokia 10 / Nokia 9.2) Assistant for calling photos, navigation instructions and sending text messages with her voice. You could say she has no time to choose. (Hm)
We already knew that Nokia phones were about to launch after HMD Global released a bond teaser, and it’s likely that the event will announce more than just a new 5G phone at the company’s earlier launches several new devices have been introduced.
- The 5G phone could be the Nokia 10
- Many 5G phones are already available
- The Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 3310 will also be included in the film
What do we know about the Nokia 5G?
While the only official detail of the upcoming handset is the fact that it offers 5G support, we can get additional information from many big news websites.
Agent Nomi says, “36 hours of searching and we’re still strong” as the camera switches to the corner of the phone screen, where the battery level shows 20%. This is a clear indication of a possible two-day battery life, which hopefully means that the new Nokia 5G phone contains a large battery.
It also shows us that the new 5G phone has a central notch for the Selfie camera. The handset appears to have a large display that occupies most of the front, but there is a small chin with the Nokia logo.
We also look at the back of the handset. A large, circular burst of cameras appears to contain four cameras grouped around a central flash.
Below the camera head is a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back, while on the upper edge of the handset there is a headphone jack and on the right an on / off switch and a volume rocker as well as a quick-start button.
A photo of the camera app shows a macro lens as well as symbols for a standard photo lens and a wide-angle option. A number of modes appear below the icons, including photo, portrait, video, and night.
Not surprisingly, the Nokia 5G phone – as is common with HMD Global – runs a relatively standard version of Android. After a few shots of the handset on hold, it could have a large display with an aspect ratio of 21: 9.
To wait all the time
The new 5G phone will not be the only handset that bears the name of the legendary phone maker in the film. The Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 3310 are also confirmed.
You won’t be able to see the trio in action on the big screen for a while.
Originally scheduled for April 2 in the UK and April 10 in the US, No Time To Die’s release date has been postponed to November 12 for the UK and November 25 for the US due to fears of coronaviruses.
However, we don’t have to wait nearly as long to find out everything about the 007 handsets that will be used later this year. Nokia is scheduled to launch on March 19.
