Once upon a time, Nokia and Motorola were two of the leaders in the mobile industry. Unfortunately, in the transition to smartphones, they have failed to grasp the opportunity to lead the future. After a few years of bumps and downs, the two brands seem to be getting some sense back. HMD Global also plans to launch the new Nokia 8.2 next week, following Motorola’s release of the new Moto Razr flip-top fold-screen smartphone.

Although HMD Global has not officially mentioned the name Of Nokia 8.2 in its Twitter feed, we are not surprised by the arrival of the new series, given that Nokia 8.1 has been launched for the first year.
HMD Global is also expected to release Nokia 5.2 at the same time, although it is still a little more exposed. Its main feature is a 32MP pop-up front, but consumers are not necessarily interested.
Built on the Qualcomm 700 Series SoC platform, it comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB ROM, and is probably priced slightly higher than the mainstream mid-range Android machine on the market.
For this generation of Nokia-branded smartphones, even if HMD Global can keep up with Android version updates, price/performance ratio could be the biggest barrier to consumer shopping.
