Fans have been dreaming of an Android flagship branded under a Nokia logo and recent developments all suggest that it is more than likely to happen in the first few months of 2017. In fact, the first phones the Finnish company is expected to unveil after the Microsoft fiasco are most likely going to be showcased at Mobile World Congress 2017, in late February.
There certainly will be more than just one smartphone that Nokia will announce at the MWC and one of them at least will be a high end flagship according to new rumours arising out of China.
The rumours peg the smartphone to have a 5.2 or 5.5-inch display that supports Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. Aside from the display size that we mentioned above, the upcoming Nokia flagship could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor which would be paired with an Adreno 530 GPU for the graphics.
Snapdragon 820 is an interesting choice considering there are already flagships running the Snapdragon 821 and by the time Nokia releases its smartphone, we may even see or at least have rumours of devices powered by the Snapdragon 835. Some rumours suggest one of those devices could be the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The phone is also rumoured to be coming with cameras that feature Carl Zeiss optics, although there is no rumour yet surrounding what the quality of the camera sensors will be in regards to megapixels. That said, previous Nokia phones have used Carl Zeiss optics before, and Nokia’s smartphones have been known to feature some excellent cameras, so there is a good chance that this flagship could feature some pretty good sensors.
Design-wise the unnamed and unannounced Nokia flagship will supposedly feature a metallic build and sport some amount of water resistance, though it’s not clear how resistant exactly at the moment. This sits in line with previous leaks and renders showcasing a metallic build.
Although it’s worth noting that today’s rumours don’t come from a necessarily reliable source so take it with the usual grain of salt.
Anyways, what do you think about these specs? Is a Snapdragon 820 enough for a smartphone that’s coming out in February next year? Tell us in the comments below.
