It seems that Nokia Mobile is getting prepared for bringing some new phones to the public eye. On July 8, the Nokia TA-1277 was certified by FCC in the US. Now there’s another Nokia phone with model number TA-1258, which has received the CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) mark in China.
The Nokia TA-1258 was certified on June 4, 2020. It will be manufactured by Sprocomm Technologies Co., Ltd. (Guangming). The certificate describes it as “TD-LTE Digital Mobile Telephone”, which means that the device will be coming with 4G connectivity. The certificate also reveals that the device will come with a 5V 1A rated power adapter (charger).
Now the question is, whether is it a smartphone or a feature phone? Well, most of the Nokia feature phones come with a 5V 0.5A rated power adapter with some exceptions like the Nokia 800 Tough, which comes with a 5V 1A rated charger.
Even some Nokia smartphones like the Nokia C1, Nokia C2, Nokia 1.3, Nokia 2.2, Nokia 2.3, etc. come with the same rated charger as the Nokia TA-1258. However, more than a year has passed, and Nokia Mobile has not launched any smartphone after Nokia X71 in China. That kind of concludes that it could be a new feature phone.
About two weeks ago, our very own Abdulla, who also has a great YouTube channel that you can check here, did an unboxing video of the Nokia E66 (2008). Surprisingly, Juho Sarvikas, CPO, HMD Global, replied to it on Twitter.
Just unboxed this beauty and took it out for a spin. This was an awesome project, still remember all the iteration it took to get the slide mechanism perfect 👌 pic.twitter.com/AbD1mFMGhn
So does that mean HMD Global could be working on a spin-off of the slider-mechanism based Nokia E66? Even if that happens, it sounds like something from the Originals Series, which Nokia Mobile would usually like to launch during the MWC (Mobile World Congress) events. Anyway, we can expect the device to get certified by TENAA (China) soon, and probably then we will have a clear picture of the device.
What do you think could Nokia TA-1258 be? Feel free to share your views in the comments section below.
