HMD Global is known for releasing Nokia smartphones across a wide range of price segments. These include flagship-level smartphones as well as budget phones with entry-level specifications. The Nokia 2.3 and Nokia C1 are its most recent budget phone launches but the company seems to be working on at least one more model in the segment.
As spotted on the Bluetooth SIG website, a Nokia smartphone with model number TA-1213 has received its Bluetooth certification. The listing shows that the Nokia TA-1213 will come with Bluetooth 4.2 support. It is further listed to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2xx series processor that is now speculated to be the Snapdragon 215.
This is pretty much what is known about the Nokia TA-1213 for now. It is hard to say whether it will be a standard budget smartphone or it will be an Android Go device that runs a specialized Android Go version of the Android operating system. Since Nokia's most recent budget device is an Android Go model, it would not be surprising to see another one coming to the market.
To give you an overview, The Nokia C1 sports a 5.45-inch display with 960 x 480 pixels resolution. It is powered by an undisclosed quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB storage (microSD card supported). It has a 5-megapixel rear camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 5-megapixel front camera with LED flash. The whole package is powered by a 2,500mAh battery and runs Android 9 Pie (Go edition) out of the box.
