Nokia joined the Android smartphone market not long ago. Following the acquisition by HMD Global in 2016, the company has since launched a number of products aimed at the entry-level and midrange markets. Now, the brand is making its move toward the flagship segment with the Nokia Magic Max smartphone. Also making headlines for an impending launch is the Nokia C99. But here we will discuss the Nokia Magic Max in detail.
Nokia Magic Max Overview:
Before jumping to the Nokia Magic Max, let’s first talk about the recent changes in Nokia. The company recently introduced a new logo after nearly six decades. Nokia replaced its traditional typeface with five different shapes to create the word Nokia and Yale Blue background with a range of colors.
CEO Pekka Lundmark says the new logo signifies that “Nokia has emerged as a business technology company.” “To signal this ambition we are refreshing our brand to reflect who we are today – a B2B technology innovation leader. This is Nokia, but not as the world has seen us before”, he adds.
Anyway, getting back to the Nokia Magic Max, it is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. And you might see the phone in three RAM: 8/12/16GB and two storage: 256/512GB options.
As the name suggests, the Magic Max will probably equip a mammoth 7,950 mAh battery under the hood. If that happens, it will be the first flagship phone to pack such a huge battery. Similarly, we can also expect a 180W fast charger.
Based on the renders emerging online, the flagship phone might feature a secondary display at the rear side. The camera module seems quite identical to an iPhone 14 Pro Max and is said to feature a 144MP primary lens. Likewise, the frames are at flat sides with squared-off edges. However, this is based on renders and is subject to change in the upcoming days.
In terms of display size, the Nokia Magic Max might flaunt a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. While the display resolution is speculated at a Quad HD+, given that it will be a flagship offering. For protection against scratches, we might see the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.
