by Jed John 5

MWC 2017 is just by the corner and one of the smartphones expected is the new Nokia flagship powered by a Snapdragon 835 chip. Earlier rumors had tipped the expected smartphone as Nokia 8 and later on, renders of a Qualcomm smartphone exhibited at CES 2017 was identified as the expected Nokia 8 until Qualcomm debunked that assertion. Now, it is rumored that the expected Nokia flagship smartphone is actually called Nokia P1 and it packs way more features than we thought.



The rumor seem to have emanated from Russia and it tips the Nokia P1 as packing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. Other key features of note is that the flagship would sport a 5.3-inch IGZO display with a refresh rate of 1 to 120Hz. The display is further protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

According to the rumor, the Nokia P1 is based on Sharp Aquos Xx3 and packs some features found on the Aquos Xx3. Recall that Foxconn now owns Sharp and Foxconn is the manufacturer of the Nokia phones for HMD Global, so the rumors carry some weight. Apart from that, the device is rumored to come with 6GB of RAM and two memory versions of 128GB and 256GB of storage respectively. There is also said to be a 22.6MP main camera at the rear identical to that of the Sharp Aquos Xx3 but the Nokia P1 comes with ZEISS optics certified by Carl. Other features include a 3,500mAh battery with Quick charge, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, and Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box.


The Nokia P1 will also come in two versions based on the material used to manufacture the body. The high-end version with 256GB storage is said to come with a ceramic body, while the other version with 128GB storage will feature a metal frame. Both versions will have IP55/ IP 57 protection standard. Expect the 256GB version to come in with a hefty $950 price tag, while the 128GB version is said to be price around $800.

    It is the same Stephen elop story again. Greedy CEOs with very crazy high profile salary, doing the stupid “big talking” at the meeting , decide wrong thing like selling at very high price so they got excuses for the company to pay them high salary also.

    In the end BIG FAILURES. Product cannot sell because too expensive compare to other competitor, company have to replace them but again normally those asshole CEOs will got their farewell bonuses very nicely (at least a couple millions) and they jump to another company as CEOs also and keep doing the same shitty things.

      Yes and no. Nokia has very little actual control over these phones or their prices. HMD Global makes all those decisions. The deal they signed is a standard licensing deal, something that Foxconn (a major shareholder of HMD) has done in the past with brands like inFocus and Sharp (which they now own).

    The top of the line will cost. I guess the next Samsung or iPhone flagship will got a similar pricing to. But HMD Global/Nokia will of course have cheaper options to. People still buy phones in contract with 24 months and the cost is spread out over that period.

    But if you just buy a smartphone unlocked you probably go for a more affordable device.
