Nokia’s New Phone Will Likely Debut in China

by Habeeb Onawole 1

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.

  • Due in the future and already behind the curve? Everyone’s putting out 821 already. Max 5.5″ sounds good though, phones are getting too big. 5.2″ option, even better. IP68 is kinda cool. They were always well known for their PureView cameras… would be interesting what they’d come up with now. Especially with the Mate 9-line. I’ll keep an open mind, but I don’t think this is going anywhere.
