HMD Global recently launched three new smartphones in Russia. The Finnish company launched Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 last month but did not reveal when they will be made available in other markets. It seems the answer to that question is ‘soon’.

A Nokia smartphone with model number TA-1109 has now received Bluetooth certification. This is the same device which recently stopped by at China’s CCC for certification. While the certification does not reveal much details about the device, it does confirm that the smartphone will be powered by a MediaTek chipset. The certification confirms that the device will support Bluetooth 4.2.

While there is no clarity on which Nokia device does TA-1109 represent, it could be the rumored Nokia 5.1 Plus. A recent leak revealed that HMD Global is working on a MediaTek-powered smartphone called the Nokia 5.1 Plus and it is possible that TA-1109 is the 5.1 Plus or Nokia X5. In addition, two more models of the Nokia X6 – TA-1083 and TA-1116 – have also been spotted in Bluetooth certification listings, reports Nokiapoweruser.

The Nokia smartphones with model numbers TA-1083 and TA-1116 are said to be international variants. The TA-116 was spotted in a Russian certification even before the Nokia X6 was officially launched in China last month. The smartphone is the first device from Nokia to offer a notched display.
