Ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) an unnamed Nokia smartphone has made it to the FCC. As per the listing, the smartphone carries a codename of TA-1071 and is likely to be an entry-level model.

According to past reports, HMD Global is expected to unveil multiple Nokia phones at the tech show and one of them is speculated to be the affordable Nokia 1. The latest FCC listing points to a model, which falls in line with the rumors about the entry-level phone.

The Nokia TA-1071 has been approved by the Federal Commission, which indicates the device is ready to be commercialized. Based on the report, only the rear view of the smartphone is shown through a representational image which does not reveal much about the phone, except that it will have Bluetooth and WLAN antenna on the top left side. There will be support for Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE, and Wi-Fi 2.4GHz, GSMArena reports.

In terms of dimensions, the image indicates the purported Nokia TA-1071 will measure 134mm tall, 50mm wide and 136mm diagonal. This translates into a screen size that could be somewhere around 5.35-inch. However, past reports indicate that the bezels will be present which could further shrink the screen size to 5-inch.

Going by the past leaks around Nokia 1, the entry-level smartphone is likely to be powered by Google’s Android Go OS. The phone could feature a pebble design with an HD display. As revealed by serial tipster Evan Blass, the Nokia 1 will have no physical capacitive Android navigation buttons, single rear camera with LED flash, and will lack a fingerprint sensor.

Other details on the Nokia 1 were scant, except it is likely to pack 1GB of RAM and 8GB of default internal storage. HMD Global is speculated to unveil the Nokia 1 alongside the Nokia 9, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 4, and an upgraded Nokia 8 Pro at the tech show which kick-starts February 26 and runs until March 1, 2018.
