Ever since HMD Global took control of the Nokia name, supposedly for the next 10 years, the latter seems to be regaining its fame in the mobile industry.
Just recently, the Nokia 6 was released in China and apparently, the phone sold out within seconds of its first flash sale. There were also over 1 million recorded pre-orders for the midrange phone before it was finally made available for purchase. In short, the company is enjoying an amazing start to Android life.
Even before this device clocks a few days on the market, another Nokia device has surfaced via GFXBench and it is an interesting one. As it is, HMD Global is not just here with smartphones, but Nokia fans will also be getting their hands on new Android-powered tablets very soon.
If this latest report is to be believed, there is a new Nokia tablet in the pipes and if all goes well, it could be the first tablet to be unveiled with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor running the show. HMD Global has confirmed that it will be at next month’s MWC show in Barcelona, Spain – don’t be surprised if this tablet is part of the event.
According to GFXBench, the new tablet will come with a massive 18.4-inch display screen with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The Snapdragon 835 SoC on board will be clocked at a speed of 2.2GHz and it will be paired with an Adreno 540 GPU alongside 4GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the 18.4-inch tablet will ship with 64GB storage, but only 52GB will be available to the end user.
Both ends will have a 12MP snapper that can record up to 4K videos. The main camera will also include autofocus, touch focus, face detection as well as a flash module. Interestingly, this Nokia tablet will come with support for SIM card connectivity, with room for one card. You also get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS, among others.
Software-wise, the mysterious Nokia tablet will be powered by the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, but like the already released Nokia 6, you get an FIH Edition of the OS. If anything, the fact that this tablet has Android FIH Edition on board is the only proof that this is indeed a Nokia-owned device.
