HMD Global owned Nokia is reportedly working on a feature phone running Android. In the past, the brand has launched feature phones running KaiOS with 4G support as well as affordable Android smartphones. The alleged Nokia feature phone has been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website with model number TA-1208. The listed device may be called Nokia 400 4G. The Nokia 400 4G with the same model number was also spotted on the Bluetooth certification site last year.
The Wi-Fi Alliance listing reveals that the Nokia 400 4G will support 2.4GHz band b/g/n connectivity. The device is tipped to run the ‘GAFP’ operating system with Google Assistant onboard. GAFP is reportedly a new Android OS for feature phones. GAFP has not been officially announced, however it was spotted by 9to5Google last year with Google apps on a feature phone. The OS also supports touchless interaction via physical buttons. GAFP could stand for ‘Google Android for Feature Phones’. It will function similarly to KaiOS found on Reliance JioPhones.
The Bluetooth certification reveals that the Nokia 400 4G will support Bluetooth 4.2 and LTE. The listing also suggests that the device could be powered by a Unisoc processor. There is not much information on the specifications of the device.
There is no word when HMD Global will launch the Nokia 400 4G but the company is slated to unveil the Nokia 8.2 5G, Nokia 5.2 and Nokia 1.3 at MWC next month. It’s likely that the brand will announce the Nokia 400 4G at the event.
