Nokia’s new budget phone has a Mate 30 Pro inspired camera bump

MWC 2020 is happening at the end of this month and Nokia will be releasing several new smartphones in Barcelona. One of the upcoming devices is expected to be the Nokia 5.2 which has been revealed thanks to serial leakster Evan Blass.

As indicated by Evan, the device carries the codename “Captain America” and it isn’t hard to see why. The rear gets a quad-camera setup that is housed on a round camera bump like the Huawei Mate 30 series. What’s interesting is that the LED flash is positioned in the middle of the circular bump which somewhat gives it an appearance of a shield.

The Nokia 5.2 has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor while the front gets a display which has a tiny notch at the top. According to Evan, the device will come with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage, and it will be priced around USD 180 (about RM740).

In Malaysia, we got the Nokia 5.1 Plus which came with a 5.8″ HD+ display and it runs on an Helio P60 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. When it was released, it was priced at RM899 which is pretty high if you compare it with other alternatives from Chinese smartphone makers.
