New details of the upcoming Nokia Android phone, expected to be unveiled at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona, have surfaced online. According to a tipster based in China, the upcoming Nokia Android phone will feature a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch screen size. The rumours claim that the smartphone will sport 2K (QHD) display, which means that the handset may belong to the high-end category.
Additionally, the Nokia Android phone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC which may seem slightly dated considering all new smartphones are now featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 under the hood. One of the highlight feature of the upcoming Nokia Android phone is said to be the Zeiss lens for the primary camera, something that has been seen on earlier Nokia devices.
The Nokia Android phone is also rumoured to come with waterproof capability alongside sporting a metal unibody design. Unfortunately, the tipster hasn't provided any image to confirm the credibility of the leak and we recommend readers to take this with a pinch of salt as Nokia is yet to confirm any details of its smartphone.
The smartphone industry is abuzz ever since the firm behind Nokia's comeback confirmed its presence at MWC 2017. To recall, Nokia last year granted HMD Global, a Finland-based company, the exclusive global licence to manufacture Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets for the next 10 years. If this turns out to be true, then Nokia will be launching its first mobile device since the Nokia N1 tablet. Furthermore, Nokia has also confirmed that CEO Rajeev Suri will be speaking at MWC next year, and this rumoured smartphone is expected to be unveiled then.
We can expect more details to be available as we come close to the MWC 2017 event that kicks off on February 27 in Barcelona.
