Nokia’s much-anticipated return to smartphones is anticipated to happen later this year. Nokia had in May signed a deal with newly-formed Finnish manufacturer HMD Global to make Nokia-branded smartphones and tablets for the next 10 years. Since then, leaks of some top-end Nokia smartphones have made their way to the Web. And now, the two smartphones have surfaced on Geekbench revealing some questionable specification details.
The first Nokia-branded Android smartphone is named the Nokia 5320 on Geekbench, and it is powered by a quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Also, it seems to be running on a very old Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system.
The other one is called the Nokia RM-1490 and it is listed to be powered by a 500MHz AMD A8-5545M processor paired with 2GB RAM. This one runs on an even older Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
These specifications are contradictory to past leaks. If true, these specifications are hardly anything to be excited about, and Nokia really needs to do some rethinking if it wants to recapture its lost charm. However, in all probability, these specs are just a test run, and the final spec sheet should look very different.
Previous leaks suggest that the two anticipated Nokia-branded Android smartphones will feature 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch displays with 2K resolution (QHD), and will come with IP68 certification. The smartphones are rumoured to be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset and will come with Z-Launcher System UI based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
