HMD Global will announce new Nokia Smartphones at MWC 2017. Rumors suggest that the new Nokia Smartphone will at least run on the latest Android 7.0.1 OS.
According to reports from iTech Post this phone is termed as Nokia Pixel and the Android powered Smartphone was spotted on GeekBench. Apart from the Pixel couple of devices was seen on the website which means that Nokia has plenty of devices to announce.
In the past Nokia device, D1C was also leaked through this website. This device was running on the build of Android Nougat featuring octa-core Snapdragon 430 CPU, 3GB of RAM and Adreno 505 GPU.
Nokia might not call the new Smartphone as Pixel as Google is using the same name. But this device will run on Android 7.0.1.
The Nokia Smartphone spots Snapdragon 200 processor which supports Quick Change 3.0, 1GB of RAM and Adreno 302 GPU, which signifies that it is most probably an entry level device. As far as the display is concerned this device may feature 2K display and the screen size would be 5.2 inches or 5.5 inches.
The Nokia Pixel will have a Snapdragon 820 chipset and the company may go with Carl Zeiss lens for its Android Smartphone. Same thing was done with premium Lumia Smartphones. Lumia Smartphone cameras were excellent even after the Android Smartphones had started dominating the market. Nokia may have a considerable edge in this area when it returns to the market.
The two other devices which were sported on the GeekBench website are Nokia Ara and Nokia Genymotion C2-00 PureView.
The Nokia Ara also features Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB of RAM. But this device does not run on the latest Android Nougat. In fact, it runs on Android 5.1.1. Hence it is also an entry level phone from Nokia.
It is speculated that Nokia will make a big comeback to the Smartphone segment in 2017.
