Nokia is preparing to re-release another “legend”

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The company HMD Global, which owns the rights to release smartphones under the Nokia brand, intends to revive another legendary series of the Finnish brand.

This is indicated by the new model under the number TA-1212, which was approved on February 15 by the Chinese certification agency TENAA.

TENAA gives the “green light” to those devices that can go on sale very soon. Judging by the images and specifications found in the regulator’s base, the future novelty clearly refers to the Nokia 5310 from the XpressMusic line, which was released in the late 2000s.

From the document it follows that the updated device will be a very simple mobile phone with a physical keyboard and a red frame around the edges of the screen. However, he will not have buttons for controlling multimedia functions, like the Nokia 5310.

The “revived” device is credited with a 2.4-inch screen with a resolution of 240×320 pixels, a processor with a clock frequency of 360 MHz, only 8 megabytes of RAM and 16 MB of internal memory, as well as a 0.3-megapixel camera, reports Nokiamob. Support for memory cards up to 32 GB.

However, the battery of the TA-1212 is very capacious for a basic mobile phone – 1200 mAh. Most likely, the battery will be able to hold a charge for at least several days.

Earlier in February, media reported that HMD plans to soon resurrect the Nokia N9 – the first and only device on the MeeGo platform.

The device under this name Nokia released in 2011, on the eve of the formation of an alliance with Microsoft and the transition to the Windows Phone platform, which subsequently crashed the smartphone business of the company.

Nokia N9 was distinguished by a progressive design at that time without buttons on the front panel and interface – in the latter gesture control was widely used.
