Nokia’s return to smartphones: New handset surfaces with specifications equivalent to that of flagshipsReuters

Nokia seems to be planning two smartphones for release in the near future. This information has surfaced in the wake of earlier reports that hinted at the existence of a Nokia D1C handset. Now, latest information revealed unofficially points at the existence of a Nokia P1 smartphone that is said to belong to the flagship devices category.

The assumptions about Nokia's plan to release two exclusively-branded smartphones make sense since new reports that point at the existence of Nokia P1 handset do not deny earlier rumours that indicated the possibility of the launch of a Nokia D1C.

Now, with respect to the Nokia P1, rumours from China hint that the smartphone would be made available in a mid-range as well as a high-end edition. Another notable aspect that has surfaced is the fact that the Nokia P1 would be driven by the Google Android 7.0 (Nougat) operating platform.

As far as the key technical specifications of the Nokia P1 are concerned, the details given below (having surfaced unofficially) may give something to Nokia loyalists to feel happy about:

  • 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch AMOLED 2K display
  • Full metallic unibody on the outside (said to be applicable for both the handsets)
  • Primary cameras to offer enhanced low-light photography via Graphene camera sensors
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC
  • 4 GB RAM

At this point in time, the pricing aspects of the purported Nokia P1 are yet to emerge. But considering Nokia's track record of offering value-for-money devices, the P1 is likely to be a competitive offering at least for Nokia loyalists.
