So it is certain that Nokia is coming back from the ashes with an Android Phone in 2016, the rumour mill started back in the second quarter of the year and now we’re 4Q in, the phone still hasn’t been announced yet. Maybe Nokia is taking it’ s time to perfect the phone this time, as the stakes are high for Nokia. We’ve seen phones render images and the name supposedly rumoured as Nokia P1.
Having used Nokia since a very young age, people are excited that their beloved brand is finally entering the smartphone market. It’s not the specs that excite us, but the brand itself. A flagship phone in 2016 can’t have bad specs, so the Nokia P1 also stands in the crowd of all the flagships in 2016 which feature the similar hardware specifications.
Based on the leak from China, the Nokia P1 will sport a metal body featuring a 2K AMOLED display, will feature either Snapdragon 820 or 821, will come with standard 4GB of RAM or higher (if Nokia is giving all out), the phone will be running on latest flavour of Android, 7.0 Nougat with the Nokia Z launcher on top. Most importantly it is IP68 water and dust resistant so the toughness of Nokia still remains intact. The camera details haven’t been out yet, but it will have graphene material in the module which will help a lot in low-light imaging.
So the fun part is, there’s gonna be Nokia P1 of two sizes, one with 5.2inch display and one large with a 5.5-inch display, but most of the specs will remain the same despite the screen sizes. Also, the comeback from Nokia isn’t small, leaks in China suggests that Nokia has a whole bunch of Smartphones in the pipeline, which they’ll release before the end of 2016.
