Nokia “Guru” Headset to Launch Mid December; Official Name “BH-121 Touch”

| November 29, 2013 | 33 Replies

Nokia-GuruA while back we heard rumors of an upcoming Nokia device/accessory being called the “Nokia Guru”. Now we can confirm that the device will launch under the name “BH-121 Touch”; although the touch part of the name refers to the fact that the device has NFC on board for quick pairing. The device is somewhat a successor to the BH -221 that was launched back at MWC 2012.

The other piece of information we can add to this is that the launch date is scheduled for mid-December at the moment (week 50); so it should make it out before the holidays. However we’ve heard that the device is slightly different from the renders @evleaks previously shared (as seen above); but we don’t have any exact info on what’s changed.

Now if only the Nokia treasure tag would become official…

    Whatever happened to that nfc/bluetooth accessory?
    there is already a 3erd option for iPhone, and soon for android..

    they got the idea from the Nokia leaks, and managed to release it before Nokia.. Meh..

    I am thinking to buy lumia 525 but I think I should wait be cause Nokia will also release 52x lumia with wp 8.1.. any advice

    • Amirul says:

      MWC is in February. Nokia will unveil new devices at the event. But don’t know if WP8.1 is already released at the time, still no words on the specific release date. Three more months are quite a lengthy time to wait (for me).
      The Nokia Lumia 525 is a new device anyway, with 1GB of RAM it surely will get the WP8.1 update. Don’t worry about that.
      Besides, it’s an entry level device. I don’t think there is a big difference in specs and hardware between the current model and newer entry level model (if they release one).

    It’s Nokia accessory, it will never be released on time and expecially not before XMAS. At least not where you live :D It would be a very pleasant surprise though. Anyhow, I would like to hear about improvements over the 221. Otherwise it just looks WinPhoned-up.

    Got my green BH-221 last week – What a great headset! The only problem is the headphones coupled with it in the package, which are quite bad (nevermind that, I bought myself a good pair).
    One other problem is the relatively short battery life (about 5-6 hours of playing music), but other than that – excellent.
    I suppose the BH-121 will have a better battery life, as it doesn’t seems to have a screen and probably supports BT 4.0…

    • Oliver says:

      Like my 221 too, especially for hands-free telephony. It would be great if the new model was more powerful in order to drive more demanding headphones.

    Could the new one really look like the one Joe was wearing on the boat pictures? It had Nokia on its screen.
