Another speculation has pointed towards a 2K-resolution AMOLED Edge display, built-in IP68 certification, fingerprint and iris scanners, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 power, and a dual rear-facing camera feature.

With Android 7.0, the Nokia P1 is also set to arrive with support for Google's Daydream Virtual Reality platform. Nokia's P1 is set to launch in the first quarter of 2017.
2017 is highly speculated to be the year that Microsoft's elusive Surface Phone finally debuts as the company looks to bolster its diminishing share of the smartphone market.
According to speculations, the Windows 10-powered Surface Phone will be available in three different versions: 4GB/128GB, 6GB/256GB, and 8GB/512GB. All of these three devices are expected to feature USB-C ports, fingerprint scanners, and 5.7in AMOLED panels, while power is also expected to be provided by Qualcomm.
