Nokia G10 to launch soon
It is suggested that Nokia will soon adopt an alphanumeric naming scheme for its upcoming phone, leading to the possible arrival of the Nokia G10. As per a report by NokiaPowerUser, the smartphone is expected to come with the model number ‘TA-1134,’ which has leaked in the past too.

It is also revealed that the rumoured Nokia device could be a gaming-centric phone. If this is true then it would mean the arrival of the first-ever Nokia gaming smartphone to compete with the likes of ASUS ROG, Black Shark, and Nubia Red Magic gaming devices.
The report further suggests that the smartphone could come with an unnamed octa-core chipset, a 48-megapixel quad-rear camera setup, and a 6.4-inch display.
A listing on the Russian website Ritm-it.ru further hints at the arrival of the Nokia G10. The listing hints at 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is quite weird for a gaming phone. With gaming phones coming with as high a RAM as 18GB (ASUS ROG Phone 5 is confirmed to get one), a Nokia gaming phone with a mere 4GB of RAM appears rather disappointing.
This gives an inkling that the upcoming Nokia device will indeed be just another budget smartphone with a nomenclature. This could be simply to make the devices’ names appear simpler as the numeric name trend seen on the Nokia smartphones seems confusing.
Just to clear the air, other details on the alleged Nokia G10 still remain unknown. We also don’t know when the device (along with possible more devices) will make its entry.
We will keep you posted. So, stay tuned!
