Nokia has been in the rumor mills more often in the recent three months than it has been in the past one year before that.
The reason behind these constant mentions is that Nokia, together with HMD Global, will be launching 6-7 smartphones that are powered by the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. This is great news for the many out there who were disappointed in the defeat Nokia accepted when Android came in, but the same OS that killed it has again come to its rescue.
While we have seen some minor details crop up with respect to the likes of Nokia D1C and Nokia E1 – all of which are midrange smartphones – it is the first time details of the supposed flagship that HMD Global is making.
According to a new leak, the unknown Nokia phone will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. In addition to this, the phone will come with a roomy display screen of 5.5 inches, but the resolution will stay at 1920 x 1080 pixels. This is probably in line with earlier reports that the Finnish company will be pricing all of its devices affordably as it looks to break into the highly competitive smartphone market.

Although not confirmed which model, the Nokia flagship will be powered by a Snapdragon processor that is paired with a RAM of 4GB. There will be an internal storage of 64GB alongside support for microSD card storage. The phone will also support 4G LTE connectivity, possibly alongside many other latest connectivity standards.
From the leaked photo, it appears that the flagship Nokia phone will have no physical home button, with the back possibly housing the main camera and fingerprint scanner – or is HMD Global thinking of going dual with the rear camera? The screen also looks to be curving as far as they can go into the right and left edges, but it is unclear whether the company will take after the Galaxy S7 Edge or not.
Be warned that this is an unconfirmed leak, meaning anything could change about it. In case of any, we’ll be here to let you know. Keep following us!
