Nokia has already confirmed its plan to get back into smartphone manufacturing next year. The company is collaborating with Finnish company, HMD Global, which is made up of ex-Nokia executives; and Chinese manufacturer, Foxconn. The three of them will handle separate roles that will lead to the re-emergence of the brand.

While the only phone we have heard about is the Nokia D1C which sports mid-range specs, a source says the company is working on a flagship phone that will first launch in China.

The phone is said to come in two sizes: 5.2-inches and 5.5-inches, which will use a 2K AMOLED display. It will sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chip, run Android Nougat, and have an IP68 rating which means you should be able to dunk it in water with a maximum depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
