Nokia had already confirmed to enter the smartphone market by launching Android powered devices. A couple of years back, Nokia already tasted the success with Nokia N1 Tablet even though it is sold with limited availability. Now the company is said to launch two new high-end smartphones running on latest Android 7.0 Nougat based Nokia Z Launcher UI. The devices will be manufactured by Foxconn while HMD Global looks after the marketing and distribution of the Nokia devices.
Unlike earlier days, Nokia will not get into the device distribution or manufacturing; it just gives authority to use its brand name and in return gets the royalties. Soon we will see two new Nokia smartphones with a screen size of 5.2-inches and 5.5-inches. Both the devices are expected to come with similar kind of design and sports mostly the same hardware. The company opted for the AMOLED display panels with QuadHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution for the both the devices.
The devices are powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz along with Adreno 530 GPU. Recently, Qualcomm also unveiled the upgraded Snapdragon 821 chipset which is clocked at 2.4GHz and offers 10% better performance. It is also mentioned that both the devices are IP68 certified which means they are waterproof and dustproof. Even the Samsung Galaxy S7 & Galaxy S7 Edge are waterproof and dustproof, and it’s been their one of the most popular feature.
As of now, there is no other information regarding the specifications of these devices. The devices will be launched first in China, same as Nokia N1 Tablet and the pricing of these is said to be around 3000 Yuan (approx $450 / Rs. 30,000). Stay tuned for even more updates!
