Reports of Only One Nokia 8.2 Variant to be Released

NokiaPowerUser, a blog dedicated to Nokia news, dismissed the rumors that claimed that the phone will be released in two variants, a 4G variant and a 5G variant. They claim that the Nokia 8.2 will only be released as a 5G smartphone. They further added that the device will go on sale in early 2020.

According to the report, Nokia was considering having two variants but later dismissed that idea to keep things simple. The same thing happened in the case of Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 plus where they later decided to have only one variant that came out to be the Nokia 6.2. They also mentioned a possibility that the Nokia 8.2 moniker will be dropped completely in favor of a new name but it’s just speculation at this point. The device will reportedly be announced in MWC 2020 which is going to be held in Barcelona.
