Nokia Android smartphones leak




Nokia is preparing to release two new smartphones this year. Nokia which had a non-competent deal with Microsoft had earlier announced its plan to license its brand name and start selling smartphones. Nokia's smartphones are to be manufactured by HMD Global, which now holds license to sell Nokia branded smartphones for the next 10 years.  The latest leak hints at those plans coming through.



The leaks suggest that the 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch phones will sport 2K resolution (QHD) displays and will come with IP68 certification, which effectively means they will be highly resistant to water and dust on the similar lines to phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7. According to GizmoChina, the two phones are expected to be flagship devices with Nokia's trademark design language. A leaked photo hints at comeback of polycarbonate shells with bolder design and expressive patterns. The phones are rumoured to be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset and will come with Z-Launcher System UI based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. The phones are tipped to have an all-metal body and according to a report by Nokia Power User both will sport an OLED screen.  It also adds that the phones might also pack fingerprint scanners.  It says that "the sensors on these two smartphones may be most sensitive ever and will be based upon Nokia's extensive research on wonder material graphene." With Android N final launch likely to happen in October, its likely that Nokia phones will debut only after Nexus launch. As one would expect from a Nokia device, the smartphone is reported to feature a 22.6MP primary camera.


The smartphones are likely to come with IP68 certification. The GizmoChina also reports that the device will be priced at 3,000 Yuan (approximately Rs 30,140). Nokia Power User has said that the official unveil for these two smartphones is planned towards the end of 2016 but adds that their launch date will be dependent on testing and development of the phones and might move to first quarter of 2017.
