Nokia fans, rejoice – it looks like the Finnish brand is gearing up to launch a new rugged smartphone, based on several leaked images online. The photos were spotted by the folks over at Winfuture, and point to a device currently known as the Nokia “Sentry.”
First spotted in a roadmap presentation by HMD Global last year, the Nokia Sentry is speculated to be rebranded as the Nokia XR or XR30, succeeding the XR20 from a couple of years back. Given the possible XR branding (as well as the phone’s design), it’s highly expected that the phone will serve as Nokia’s new rugged handset.
It’s possible that the Nokia Sentry will come with 6GB of RAM backed by 128 GB of internal memory, a camera combo which features a 64-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 16-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls. Inside, the phone might come with a 4600 mAh battery, with support for 33W fast-charging.
While there’s no mention of a specific release date, it’s speculated that the Sentry might come with a $499 price tag, placing it in line with other midrange Android phones.
