Nokia may unveil a high-end Android smartphone alongside the much-rumoured Nokia D1C, if the latest leaks are to be believed.
A new report citing a Chinese tipster claims that Nokia’s upcoming high-end smartphone will pack a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and a 23-megapixel rear camera with Zeiss lens. An earlier report suggested that the high-end Nokia phone may sport a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch screen size and come with 2K (QHD) display.
One of the highlight features of the upcoming flagship Nokia Android phone was said to be the Zeiss lens for the primary camera, something that was seen on earlier Nokia devices. The high-end Nokia Android phone is also expected to run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Nokia’s Android smartphone is also rumoured to come with waterproof capability alongside sporting a metal unibody design.
A couple of leaked images show an all-metal phone with Nokia branding at the rear. Unfortunately, the turned off display doesn’t show anything at the front. The leaked Nokia smartphone images couldn’t be verified and we advise readers to take the images with a pinch of salt considering this could be an early prototype of the high-end Nokia flagship.
We can expect more details about the Nokia smartphones to be available as we come close to the MWC 2017 event that kicks off on February 27 in Barcelona.
Amidst several leaks and rumours around Nokia’s re-entry into smartphones, HMD Global, which owns the exclusive rights to use the Nokia branding on mobile devices, recently unveiled the Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM phones. The Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM basic phones will be available in select markets from Q1 2017, starting with APAC, IMEA, and Europe.
HMD Global, the Finnish company, also recently confirmed that the first Nokia-branded Android smartphone will make its way in the first half of 2017 and the launch will happen at MWC 2017.
