A MediaTek Dimensity 800 powered Nokia mid-ranger is reportedly in the works
Nokia has just dipped its toes in the 5G market. The company's mid-rangers have been doing quite well, so there is no reason for it to rush. The Nokia 8.3 PureView is the company's first 5G-ready offering. If its €599 price tag is too intimidating for you, there's another low-cost alternative in the works too.
The folks over at Nokiapoweruser have some insider information, which states that there is a mid-range 5G Nokia phone in the works. It will reportedly come with one of MediaTek's Dimensity 800 SoCs. We've already seen what the chips are capable of in recent offerings such as the Redmi 10X series, Honor Play 4, and ZTE Axon 11. Then there's a third, Snapdragon 7xx series 5G phone in the works too.
Nokia's MediaTek-powered 5G phone won't make its debut until Q4 2020 or Q1 2021. The Snapdragon-powered variant, on the other hand, will be released much earlier. 5G is the only thing missing from Nokia's repertoire, and it'll be interesting to see what the company has in store for us as the year passes.
