The post from Weibo has mentioned that both the new Nokia smartphones will be powered by the mighty Snapdragon 820. One of them will feature a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with QHD (2560 X 1440) resolution. Another will sport a slightly larger 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with the same resolution. The devices will run on Android 7.0 Nougat with a Nokia Z Launcher based user interface on the top.
Both the smartphones will come with a premium all-metal design similar to the Nokia N1 tablet. The new devices from Nokia will also come IP68 certification similar to the Samsung S7 series flagship range. This means that the handsets will be resistant to liquid and dust damages to a great extent.
Unlike the Nokia mobile phones of the old days, these new devices will neither be manufactured nor distributed by Nokia. The company can’t use its manufacturing facilities as Microsoft has commissioned them as a part of its acquisition.
Foxconn, the largest manufacture of electronic goods in the planet, will manufacture the upcoming smartphones. HMD Global will distribute and market the phones. The latter is the company that was established with the target to bring Nokia branded smartphones and tablets back to the market.
As with previous Nokia N1 tablet, these two upcoming devices will also be launched first in China.
