Juho said this smartphone will be Truly Global 5G and it will be launched with Snapdragon 690 processor. Hopefully the smartphone will be cheaper than Nokia 8.3. Nokia had launched its first 5G smartphone earlier this year, but the smartphone is yet to hit the market. They delay has been caused by the coronavirus. And the new smartphone could be either Nokia 6.3 or Nokia 7.3, with support for the new chipset. This is likely to make the upcoming Nokia phone to be the most affordable product to offer 5G support.
