On to the future: Nokia will reveal its plans for 5G phones in a few days
A little more than a week ago, Nokia first teased that it will be launching its next smartphone on the 5th of December. Of course, no details were given — whether it would be a flagship or not is left to speculation. Luckily, we have a new leak that lets us speculate at will!

Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas has tweeted out that he will be getting up on stage at the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit — the event where Qualcomm will talk about its future chips. According to Mr. Sarvikas, we will also get to learn about Nokia's plans for 5G phones. The exact date when this would happen is Tuesday, December 3rd.


So, Nokia is talking about its 5G plans on the 3rd and launching a new phone almost immediately, on the 5th of December. Could the latter actually be Nokia's first 5G-equipped flagship?

We'd wager chances are thin. Earlier rumors suggest that Nokia is, indeed, planning to release a value-priced 5G top-tier phone, but that'll happen at MWC 2020. Heads up, though — that's actually happening in late February, so it won't be a long wait. The Qualcomm conference on the 3rd of December might at least reveal if this is really happening.

They don't even have a real flagship smartphone!

If you’re referring to the very few issues it has had, then by that logic, Google doesn’t have a proper flagship smartphone either, between what its current Pixels offer and the issues they’ve already had.

They don't. I honestly think Nokia should leave the flagship phones to the OEMs that know what they are doing and stick to midrange and foodstamp phones because they are far more suited for that than.

Again, if they don’t, then Google certainly hasn’t had a real flagship ever. They should stick to making midrange smartphones with meh specs and a decent camera be sud that’s what they are far more suited for, using your logic.

If they actually released that as their 5G smartphone this year with improvements and an affordable price tag I’d be all over it.

An affordable 5G smartphone with an upper tier SD7xx SoC with HMD’s incredible software support will be a hit! Looking forward to it, HMD.

5G isn't really widespread. Instead of focusing on infrastructure that's in its infancy they should be focusing on making a better smartphone if they are going to try and make a follow up to the Pureview. The Pureview was too many missteps and Nokia dropped the ball hard with it.

5G is the way of the future. 4G on a smartphone was once not that widespread. Does that mean that no one should have followed suit and made them after the first one was made? Absolutely not. Making a “better smartphone” can and should include 5G capabilities, since it is the way of the future. HMD is much newer to the smartphone game than say, Google, and The Nokia 9 Pureview has had far less “missteps” than any of Googles flagships, which have been having greater missteps than their predecessors each time. Oh, and HMD doesn’t focus in infrastructure. Nokia does. HMD just makes the phones that are capable of running on said infrastructure. HMD=phones, Nokia=infrastructure. Thought you should know that.
