Nokia 4 Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours

Until now the Nokia 4 has been nothing more than a gap in Nokia’s numerical product line, along with the Nokia 1[1], Nokia 9[2] and Nokia 10[3]. It’s surely common sense that the company might launch such a device, but thanks to some data spotted in the Nokia Camera APK[4] we now know Nokia’s thinking on the same lines as us. The screenshot below alludes to several upcoming Nokia phones, including a Nokia 4.

Nokia 4 Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours

That’s not a great deal to go on, of course, but we can speculate on the Nokia 4’s specification based on what the phones that sit either side of it in the line-up offer:

Nokia 3 Nokia 5
RRP GBP129.99 GBP179.99
Operating System Android 7.0 Nougat Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Display 5in HD (1280×720, 16:9) IPS with Gorilla Glass 3 5.2in HD (1280×720, 16:9) IPS with Gorilla Glass 3
Processor 1.3GHz MediaTek 6737 quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 430
Memory 2GB RAM 2GB RAM

Primary Camera 8Mp, 1.12um, f/2.0, autofocus, LED flash 13Mp, 1.12um, f/2.0, PDAF, dual-tone LED flash
Selfie Camera 8Mp, 1.12um, f/2.0, autofocus 8Mp, 1.12um, f/2.0, autofocus
Battery 2630mAh 3000mAh
Dimensions 143.4×71.4×8.48mm 149.7×72.5×8.05mm

A likely spec for the Nokia 4 might include a 5.1in HD (1280×720, 16:9) screen, the 1.3GHz Snapdragon 212 quad-core processor, Adreno 304 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (with microSD support up to 128GB), 4G LTE Cat 4, Micro-USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, NFC for sharing, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a mono speaker and a 2800mAh battery.

If Nokia does opt for Qualcomm’s 200-series we cannot expect any more than 8Mp on the camera, so it might share the same camera specifications as the Nokia 3.

How much will the Nokia 4 cost?

It’s likely the Nokia 4 will sit in between the 3 and 5 at around GBP149.99.

When is the Nokia 4 release date?

This is almost impossible to predict, given that Nokia tends to announce phones intended for sale in the EU at big tradeshows such as MWC (25 February) and IFA (31 August), but it also holds smartphone launches in China on seemingly random days. In common with the Nokia 6, the Nokia 4 could launch in China first. Assuming that it won’t, and given that MWC is a bit too close when considering how many Nokia 4 rumours we’ve seen, for now our money is on an IFA 2018 launch.

We’ll update this article when we hear more.
