It’s a pretty well known fact that 2017 will mark Nokia’s return to the world of smartphones. HMD, the Finnish company that currently holds the right over Nokia’s logo has already unveiled the first new Nokia device – the Nokia 150 feature phone.
But HMD is also planning to lunch new Nokia smartphones in the near future. Recently we’ve told you there’s a possibility the first new Nokia handsets to make it out next year might turn out to be priced really affordably. These budget-friendly phones should make a debut during the MWC 2017 expo in Barcelona.
However, if the rumor mill is correct, HMD also has some premium phones in the pipeline, scheduled to make an appearance sometime in 2017.
Well this week we bring you some new information about the upcoming Nokia high-end devices. According to a report coming out of Weibo (via KKJ), HMD is working on a premium Nokia smartphone dubbed the Nokia P.
The flagship will apparently be powered by a new Snapdragon 835 processor and bundle 6GB of RAM and a 23MP camera with Zeiss lens. Previous rumors would have us believe, the Nokia P might come in 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch flavors and feature IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.
The phone(s) should launch with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, unless they will be unveiled towards the end of 2017, in which case they might have Android O onboard.
The current report contains a couple of images showcasing a prototype phone with a metal back, which is in league with what we previously knew.
