It’s been a while since we’ve seen Nokia devices in the market, but now the long wait is over.
Last week, rumors had emerged after a specialist blog posted that Nokia may be gearing up for a major comeback to smartphone industry with two new “high-end” devices. According to Nokia Power User blog, the phones will come with a “premium metallic design” and will have the “famous Nokia feel”.
The blog quoted that the information came from yet unnamed “trusted sources” and suggest that the device is more likely on its prototype phase for now. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more about it until Nokia officially confirm the information.
The phones will run on Android 7 Nougat right out of their boxes. The devices is also said to have water and dust-resistant feature with IP68 rating, like the one we are seeing in Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices.
The devices will come in two variants, one with 5.2-inch display and other with 5.5-inch display. Though the information is unclear, we will be expecting the phones to feature OLED screen with 2K resolution (QHD).
The System UI is more likely be an improved version of Nokia Z Launcher based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with touch and hover interaction feature. The devices will also come with fingerprint scanner and sensors that are most sensitive ever based on Nokia’s wonder material graphene.
In January 2015, Nokia released its first Android tablet in China running on Android Lollipop and was became a huge hit after 20,000 units have been sold for just about 4 minutes with 500,000 more people waiting outside to get their orders, an indication that there is so much hope left for Nokia.
