The Nokia TA-1157 that is rumored to be the upcoming Nokia 3.2 smartphone has been approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance certification body.
It is the very same handset that had received approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) body in the U.S. earlier this month, along with its variant Nokia TA-1150.
It is speculated that this could be one of the Nokia smartphones that may get announced through the February 24 launch event at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) tech extravaganza in Barcelona, Spain.
The Nokia TA-1157 Wi-Fi approval confirms that the phone will support 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi which indicates that it will be a low-budget device. The handset is loaded with Android 9 Pie. Like other Nokia phones, the Nokia TA-1157 will most probably end up as Android One device.
The FCC approval of the Nokia TA-1157 had confirmed that the handset measures 148.95 x 71.30 mm. Since it measures 131 mm diagonally, it could be with a screen of around 5.1 inches. The schematics of the phone that were found in the FCC filings revealed that the phone will be arriving with a dual camera setup and a fingerprint reader on its rear shell.
The alleged Nokia 3.2 is expected to hit the market in variants such as 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage and 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage (as seen in the FCC documents). The handset is packed with a 3,000 mAh battery. Since it is a low-end device, the handset is unlikely to arrive with support for fast charging.
The smartphone is equipped with support for Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC connectivity. Depending on the region it releases, it will be available in single-SIM and dual-SIM versions. On February 24, HMD Global will be debuting the Nokia 9 PureView flagship phone with penta-lens setup. Apart from the rumored Nokia 3.2 (TA-1157), it is also expected to unveil other phones such as Nokia 6.2, Nokia 8.1 Plus, Nokia 1 Plus and a new feature phone.
