HMD Global and its Nokia branded smartphones have actually been in the rumour mill for a while now. But a fresh leak from a few days back set the internet ablaze when we saw leaked render of a weird looking Nokia phone.

The leak which came courtesy of a Weibo user reveals a Nokia phone with an internal codename “Nokia Daredevil”. Not much was released, however, some of the images revealed a few of its key features.

We are still not sure when the said device will hit the market. But now, we have the real marketing name as revealed by the Twitter account Nokia_anew. The source claims that the Nokia phone codenamed “Nokia Daredevil” is actually the unreleased Nokia 5.2.

He further revealed that the Nokia Phone maker HMD has in its original plans to port some of its premium flagship features to the Nokia 5 series. The features in question are Zeiss optics, pure display, and OZO Audio and it all starts to fit perfectly.

And given that the Nokia 4-series from the previous year technically replaced the Nokia 5.1, the Nokia 5 should move up the tier ladder. With this strategy, HMD aims to make the Nokia 5.X series more competitive, though not without its resultant price hike.
