The very first Nokia-made smartphone that runs on Android was released just earlier this month. Despite the small time since then, the company is already expected to release a new device during the Mobile World Congress 2017, which will begin on February 27. The upcoming device, called the Nokia P1, is going to sport the best possible specs, with the price tag to match.
According to Phone Arena, the public first got wind of the Nokia P1 last year, but news on the same died down because it never appeared in the market. Nevertheless, the unit is once again hitting the headlines because, as the publication notes, the handheld is expected at MWC 2017. It might be that the unit will be announced during the event, especially since Nokia will hold its own event.
The publication goes on to continue that the Nokia P1 will be based on the Sharp Aquos Xx2, which was released in Japan last year. But while inspiration will be taken from this device, the upcoming unit will definitely have better and more modern specs. Powering the device will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is the company's latest and most powerful chipset.
The Nokia P1 is also expected to run smoothly on 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal memory. The rear camera is estimated to be 22 megapixels and Carl Zeiss-certified, which will surely be evident in the 5.3 inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. Moreover, the body itself is expected to be dust and water resistant, with a minimum rating of IP57.
Straight out of the box, the Nokia P1 is expected to run on the Android 7.0 Nougat. It will also have a fingerprint scanner on the righthand side of the device. Its 3500 mAh battery is sure to last the entire day, but will not take hours to fully charge as the device will be fitted with a quick charging feature.
As NDTV Gadgets adds, the 128GB model of the Nokia P1 could be priced around US$800, while the more 256GB variant could cost upwards of US$950. This price range is definitely more expensive than the earlier release. However, it will also feature much better specs.
