A new 4G smartphone by Nokia Mobile recently passed the FCC certification in the US with the model number TA-1391. The Antenna Locations diagram reads that the overall diagonal dimension of the device is 159 mm, which might fit a display of around 6-inches. It will use a 2920 mAh battery.
The label location diagram does not give much detail, but the label is placed below the battery bin. And since the label must be visible to the user without having to remove any parts of the phone, the battery on this one might be removable. Nokia TA-1391 is possibly a single SIM variant as the label mentions only one IMEI.
The device supports Bluetooth 4.2, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, FM radio, and GNSS (GPS, Glonass, and Beidou). Surprisingly, one of the documents also mentions the frequency bands for NFC support, but then the main page has no such mention, so more clarity is needed.
The software version reads “NOKIA_Iris”, so Iris might be the code name of Nokia TA-1391, which is not the name of any Marvel character. Is HMD Global moving away from the Marvel character-based code name scheme that they adopted starting with their 2019 devices?
Other than that, the certification also lists down the accessories that were tested along with the phone, which includes an earphone, two USB cables, two batteries, and six chargers. The Nokia TA-1391 supports the following network bands: GSM (850, 1900); WCDMA (2, 4, 5); LTE (2, 4, 5, 7, 41).
The specifications shout that the company is on its way to bring yet another affordable smartphone. The question is, where does this device fit in the portfolio? The Nokia C10 and Nokia C20 already offer a 6.5-inch display, but the Nokia TA-1391 might feature a display of about 6-inches.
So, this could very well be a carrier-locked smartphone for the US, but then the label has the logos of NOM and NYCE. NOM (Norma Oficial Mexicana) is the safety approval for equipment given by Mexico’s certification body, NYCE. Thus, more information is required to reach any conclusion.
