Before MWC, we saw quite a few rumors of a possible launch of Nokia Qwerty feature phone carrying the model number TA-1047 but that didn't happen. HMD Global launched their new generation of Nokia mobile phones at MWC. They launched 4 new smartphones (Nokia 1, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco) and also brought back the iconic Nokia 8110 4G.
I just visited the Bluetooth Certification website and found out that many more variants of TA-1047 have received the Bluetooth Certification. The model numbers that received Bluetooth Certification apart from already certified TA-1047 are TA-1056, TA-1060, TA-1066, TA-1079. This was surely not a Nokia 8110 4G as it was recently spotted at FCC carrying the model number TA-1048 and we can't see any such model number passing the Bluetooth certification.
The only smartphone that was not listed by its name in the Bluetooth certification database was Nokia 1. So, I thought of checking the Nokia 1 user guide to see if I could find the model numbers and to my surprise, I hit the right cord. :P I found the model numbers (TA-1047, TA-1056, TA-1060, TA-1066, TA-1079) mentioned in the Keys and Parts section of the Nokia 1 user guide. (The Mystery has been solved :D)
So, Nokia 1 was the device that was rumored to be the QWERTY feature phone but now we all know that it is the lowest priced Nokia smartphone running on Android GO Platform. Sorry, E-Series Fans. No QWERTY Nokia at least for now. :)
