The renowned leaker Ishan Agarwal claims to have heard that Nokia will release its first phone with a pop-up selfie camera soon, and that it will be the 8.2. The sensor to be housed in this module may be a 32MP shooter. The 8.2 is now also said to come in an 8GB RAM/256 storage variant, and to run Android Q out of the box.

Nokia may jump on the ever-increasing momentum of the pop-up selfie-cam bandwagon soon. The well-regarded tipster Ishan Agarwal has asserted that an upcoming device, the 8.2, will feature such a module, which will house a 32MP sensor.

This putative phone would be a sucessor to the Nokia 8.1. Should the new rumor prove true, the OEM may improve on this existing phone in terms of screen real estate. Agarwal has also hinted at a SKU with 8GB of RAM and 256GB in fixed storage. It is also now slated to run the next major Android upgrade (Q) at launch.

Despite these decent potential specs, it also appears that the Nokia 8.2 is destined for mid-ranger territory. MySmartPrice has also indicated that its SoC may not get better than a Snapdragon 735. This processor, while possibly capable of 5G and AI support, may also get only 1 core that goes at 2.4GHz. On the other hand, this remains the stuff of rumor at present, especially considering Agarwal has not confirmed his sources for this new Nokia-related leak.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
