The Nokia brand recently made its re-entry in the smartphone ecosystem with the launch of Nokia 6, courtesy of Finnish giant HMD Global. Now, various leaks and rumors have been making rounds regarding upcoming smartphones from the company.
Nokia China’s official Weibo account, first spotted by NokiaPowerUser, suggests that the company is working on a new smartphone that is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. It has also been revealed that HMD Global could launch a Nokia-branded device that’s running Windows 10 in the near future.
On a user’s query about the rumored Snapdragon 835 smartphone, the official Weibo account replied [Translated by Google Translate],
Understood your mood, because the new high-end Snapdragon SoC has just released, please give us some time to prepare, when the time will be made public.
However, considering that HMD Global has so far talked about only Android smartphones, there are very slim chances that a Windows 10 Mobile-based Nokia smartphone sees the light of day. Well, not a smartphone, the company might unveil a tablet running on Windows 10.
As per the leaked specifications, Nokia P1 will sport 6GB of RAM and will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The phone is expected to feature a 23 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and come with a Quad HD display resolution.
The device will pack top of the line features, fitting the bill for a premium flagship smartphone. It is rumored to start around $800 (roughly Rs. 54,500).
Last week, the company received tremendous response from consumers in China in the first flash sale of the comeback smartphone, the Nokia 6, in China. The smartphone went out of stock in a minute in its first flash sale in China. The flash sale concept which has worked wonders for Chinese brands like Xiaomi, is proving to be a boon for the company’s return as well.
Nokia has planned an event at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017, where the company is expected to launch few of its smartphones.
