Nokia TA-1047 passed FCC certification. Could it be Nokia’s first 4G feature phone?

New Nokia device has just passed FCC tests. The device code is TA-1047 and it wasn’t seen before. The tests, that have been done in China, revealed some info about this phone. First of all, it is not referred as smartphone as many other Nokia phones like 6, 5… but as GSM/WCDMA/LTE Mobile Phone, like Nokia 3310 3G which is 3G mobile phone. Also, the dimensions of the phone (133×68) are a bit smaller than the smallest Nokia smartphone phone out there, and are a bit bigger than the classic feature phone. Maybe HMD is planning on introducing the feature phone with touch screen (diagonal is 140 mm)?

 

Second, it is interesting to see that this phone supports 4G but also has BT, WiFi and support for the VoLTE which is great feature that will provide this phone with some new market opportunities.

The label revealed it is going to be Dual SIM phone also but with the support for Dual SIM standby which means that two SIM cards can’t be used simultaneously.

Unfortunately, this phone won’t be available for the US market which is clearly stated in the cover letter. But, people there already have one great feature phone, Nokia 3310 3G 😊.

Not much time will pass until we see this device since the certifications tests are done. It is still hard to tell when will this device be launched since HMD has been unpredictable and showed it doesn’t care much about showing its devices on some big events like IFA or CES.

Next year is going to be very interesting!

  • Just to add something, this could be that perfect feature phone that could make us forget the smartphone 🙂 For some period of time… Short period

      Agree

      It’s too big to be a dumbphone. I think it’s the new N3 or possibly the first N1.

      • At first I thought it was smartphone but FCC clearly listed it as mobile phone as did the 3G 3310.

        Current Nokia 3 is 143.4 x 71.4 x 8.5 mm, and this one is significantly smaller 113 x 68 mm. It could be bezel less smartphone but in that price segment?

        Maybe it is qwerty phone or touch screen feature phone?

          133×68 mm fits perfectly with a 5″ 16:9 display with virtual buttons if bezels are kept small.

    So many new Nokia phones leaked lately it’s hard to keep up. Launching blitz early next year expected!

    • This should be out after the New Year since HMD guys are going to be relaxing a bit for Christmas.

    But isn’t the FCC based in the US?

    If so, would this eventually make it’s way over here, as the 3310 3G did?

    Also the form factor seems nice and pocketable.

    Anyone here other than me want this phone to be a Symbian powered feature phone? (I know I know… Symbian was purposely killed off…)

    • FCC is US agency but probably some overseas laboratories are doing tests for them.

      I would love to see Symbian but it’s waaay to dead to even be resurrected 🙂

        You know what?
        I just realized that maybe I’m older than the typical Nokia user on this site.

        Perhaps most people here joined the Nokia bandwagon in the passed 5 -6 years or so, so Lumia is what they know, not the incredible symbian that us older fans still hold dear.

        I guess I’m from a different era, and I don’t embrace change as others do.

        Either way, I wish the Nokia team, staff, and partners all the best.

        Since we’re talking about the amazing mature symbian operating system, what is going on with sailfish?

        • He he, i grew with Symbian, been molded by it.

          Somewhere in the vaults of Accenture Symbian lies on some DVD :).

          Sailfish is up and running but now they are selling it to various government departments of the BRICS countries and as Sailfish X for Sony Xperia device.

    I think this is Nokias alternative for the 4G Jio feature phone for the India market. It have been succesful.

    Interesting, this 4G phone written “dibuat di china” (indonesian language), but the regulation here can’t have 4g if directly imported from other country

  • simo

    I’m beginning to wonder if HMD will be bringing any Nokia phones to US carriers. Hopefully the Nokia 9, but I’m not optimistic.
