HMD Global is now rumoured as bringing back the Nokia E71 feature phone with modern features. The Nokia E71 (2018) is also said to be the company’s first 4G feature phone. Recently, an Nokia device with model number TA-1047 was certified by FCC and Bluetooth SIG agencies, and now a new report from Chinese media revealed the specifications of the upcoming Nokia feature phone.
After witnessing a huge demand for the Nokia 3310 (2018), HMD’s focus is now on the Nokia E71 (2018), which is also said to be the brand’s first 4G feature phone. As per a report from Chinese portal, MyDrivers, the Nokia E71 (2018) will feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen display with a 480p resolution. Below the display, there will be the trademark QWERTY keypad.
The device may be powered by the Snapdragon 205 chipset, which also brings 4G LTE support to the device. The processor is said to be coupled with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. Storage can be further expanded with a microSD card. It is also said that the Nokia E71 (2018) will come in a single SIM and dual-SIM variants depending on the market. A 3MP camera might be present at the back of the phone.
Having said that, there’s no official confirmation from HMD Global on the existence of the Nokia E71 (2018). Given the fact that HMD brought a revised version of the Nokia 3310, the existence of Nokia E71 (2018) seems to be a reality.
The report also revealed the pricing of the upcoming feature phone, but it’s on the steeper side. HMD is looking to price the Nokia E71 (2018) phone at 2000 Yuan (approx. Rs 20,000), which is an awful price for a feature phone.
It is also stated that the Nokia E71 (2018) would be launched in China alongside the Nokia 9, Nokia 8 (2018), and the Nokia 6 (2018) on January 19. The device may launch globally at a later date. The Nokia 9 would be the company’s first bezel-less smartphone, and the Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to be a powerful mid-range device.
HMD Global’s 2017 has been as successful one as of now, and it’s also the best brand of 2017 according to me. And the company’s officials are already promising an eventful 2018 on social media platforms.
