Nokia 6 sold under a minute like hotcakes! After the phone created massive hype in the markets of China and around the world, everyone is anticipating what the company has next for the consumers. The company will be launching its flagship phone, the Nokia P1 soon, and people cannot wait to get their hands around it.
Although there has been no official say from the Finnish company HMD Global, which took over Nokia, consumers are hoping the news is true based on the circulating rumours. If there is anything in the pipeline, we will soon find out at Mobile World Conference (MWC), which is to take place later this month.
If Nokia is planning to launch its flagship, and if it is announced at MWC, here are the rumours which are most likely to come true:
The P1 is said to be the company’s flagship and a smartphone, which means that it will have features which will attract the consumers towards the handset while setting a competitive level for its rivals. Knowing Nokia, they may keep the design of the phone simple, as they traditionally do, they will also introduce Android 7.o Nougat as support.
Nokia can also look forward to a massive change to its camera, according to rumours, it will be of 22.3MP while basting a 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. A concept video also surfaced suggesting the P1 be a higher-end model with an all-metal body with glass and much more.
Other rumours suggest that the Nokia P1 smartphone will boast a 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IGZO display, made by Sharp, and will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor. The colour variants, according to speculations will be standard colours, Black, Silver and White, while a 3,500mAh battery is also a part of this package.
The phone may be equipped with not 1, not 2, but 3 LED flashlight, Type-C USB, 3.5mm headphone jack, and most like dual speakers (which are rumoured to be at the bottom). Its power/lock and volume rocker keys are placed on the right-hand side of the phone’s body, and so is the dedicated physical camera key.
“We do not disclose details of our reference design. We’ve seen a few stories rumouring what we demonstrated in our CES booth to be a Nokia device. Those reports are not accurate, our 835 demos were on our own reference design devices, which we use to demo our latest Snapdragon SOCs every year,” PC Advisor quoted a Qualcomm spokesperson as saying.
With respect to the Qualcomm’s processor, it has also been reported that another Nokia product will be supported by Snapdragon 835. The same website highlighted that Nokia P1 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835. However, there is still no official confirmation about whether it will a part of the flagship or not.
