Rumor | The Nokia G10 is to be the first in a whole new line of smartphones from the brand
Nokia has a new phone called the G10 in the works. At least, this is the gist of an "exclusive" new tip published by NokiaPowerUser (NPU), which also observes that, if true, the leak means the putative phone is also the first in a brand-new series from the company.
NPU also now believes that, thanks to the use of the letter G here, Nokia is also jumping on the "gaming phone" bandwagon with its new line. Then again, this "G10" is also rumored to have a 6.4-inch display, which might fall short of the real estate than is often valued in this category of Android devices. On the other hand, not every phone marketed to mobile gamers is a full-on flagship.
However, it could simply be that the HMD Global firm wants to step away from its current x.x naming scheme: letters work well enough for other brands such as Motorola, after all. In any case, the "Nokia G10" is also now linked to hints of a 48MP main camera and an octa-core processor of some kind. It might have the same charging tech as in the recently-launched 5.4, which has a 4,000mAh battery that can fill up at a rate of 10 watts.
The "G10" is also now said to have the model number TA-1334, which has reportedly been certified by TUV Rheinland alongside a fleet of additional upcoming devices called the TA-1351, TA-1338 and TA-1346. It has also appeared on the NBTC's database, again as the TA-1334, suggesting that it will indeed launch soon; whether as the inaugural G-series phone from Nokia or not remains to be seen.
