Since Nokia’s official announcement of re-entry in the smartphone market back in May, rumours of a forthcoming Nokia smartphone have been doing rounds on the web. As early in July, leaked images of a handset emblazoned with the Nokia logo, deemed to be called the P1 appeared online that created quite a buzz.
Though these images turned out to be of the Sharp Aquos P1. Many reports are now suggesting that the Sharp Aquos P1 will be re-branded as the Nokia P1.
Nothing is confirmed, but word is that the Nokia P1 is speculated to get a 5.3-inch Full-HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor bundled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It is also expected to feature a 22.6MP primary camera with f/1.9 aperture, a 3,000mAh battery with support for fast-charging and IP58 dust and waterproof rating.
Though it’s not the first time a leaked image of a Nokia handset running Android has appeared on the web. Earlier, an image of a handset purportedly called the Nokia C1 had leaked. The device was expected to be launched in both variants – Android and Windows, but so far the news is just another rumour.
Rumors of a handset from the fallen Finnish giant Nokia have been doing rounds for months now. Back in May, the company issued a press release in which they clearly mentioned that they would re-enter the smartphone market, but this time they would play it safe and stick with Google’s Android OS. The Finland-based manufacturer will license its brand to its Asian partner Foxconn, which will then produce handsets for Nokia.

Though sources do indicate that the first Android smartphone from Nokia is beginning to take shape. Despite its ups and downs including the fiasco when it tied up with Microsoft, Nokia as a brand name still resonates with everyone. The company has delivered some awesome high-end products in the past, and we are pretty confident that we’ll see another quality smartphone from the Finnish manufacturer in the near future.
