Nokia P is expected to rival with prolific flagships in 2017 such as the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8.
For Android enthusiast and more precisely for those who took pride owning a Nokia back in the days, HMD Global, the new parent company has announced that Android-powered smartphones signed by Nokia will start rolling out in mid-2017.
However, at this point, there are only speculations in regard to the future flagship phone’s performances. Nevertheless, the official announcement says loud and clear that future Nokia smartphones will feature Android OS and most definitely be available as of next year.
Rumors About the Nokia P Flagship
So far, rumors about the upcoming Nokia P contained contradictory information. Most techies expect that the flagship smartphone will benefit from specs so great that it will launch the Nokia P straight at the top alongside the other two strong contenders expected to hit the shelves next year like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8.
However, others have speculated that the future release will only feature low-end specs such as a Snapdragon 200 processor and only 1 Gb of Ram memory.
Nevertheless, more recently, new information on the purported flagship smartphone has surfaced. The latest rumors describe the device as a high-end handset powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor and housing as much as 6 Gb of RAM memory. In terms of internal storage, some said that it is possible the Nokia P will leave the iPhone’s 128 Gb capacity in the rear view mirror with the P model’s capacity exceeding 200 Gb. Nonetheless, this seems to be an exaggerated claim.
Another interesting aspect would be pictures and video quality. Rumors say that the smartphone will come with a 23-megapixel rear end camera with Carl Zeiss optics.
Purported Smartphone’s Design
In terms of design, the flagship smartphone is expected to astonish the crowds with its premium build. Therefore, rumors state that the body will feature metallic accents with rounded edges. The logo will take its place in the middle on the back side and at the top on the front side.
The standard-sized camera will feature a single LED. Also, two lines travel across the smartphone’s back, much likely for antenna signal, with one of them going right beneath the flash. As opposed to other smartphones, the Nokia P does not seem to feature a fingerprint scanner, though.
