Now, this is something that we reported exclusively for Nokia 7.3. As per our sources, Nokia 7.3 will be powered by a Snapdragon processor with 5G support and now with this teaser, Snapdragon 690 fits the bill for the processor.
Juho has also mentioned that the smartphone powered by Snapdragon 690 processor will feature PureDisplay and Zeiss-branded optics. This again matches what our sources revealed about Nokia 7.3 that may feature a much improved Quad-camera setup.
Recently our sources reported that development work for Nokia 7.3 is on track for a launch in early Q4 2020. The launch timings still depend on the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and how quickly it can be controlled worldwide.
