Nokia’s new Android smartphone named Nokia Pixel has surfaced on Geekbench. The listing reveals that the upcoming phone will be powered by Android 7.0.1 Nougat. Even though the name of the phone is given as Nokia Pixel, we are not sure as to whether this name will be official.
As per the Geekbench listing, the Nokia Pixel features Snapdragon 200 processor, Adreno 302 graphics coupled with 1GB RAM. The phone will also be equipped with fast charging technology. While the Nokia Pixel scored 404 on the single-core test, the handset cranked to 661 on the multi-core test. Based on the results, we can infer that the Nokia Pixel will be an entry-level phone.
In September 2016, a budget phone named Nokia D1C passed through Geekbench with a single-core score of 682 and multi-core test of 3229. This phone will offer Snapdragon 430 processor, Adreno 505 graphics, 3GB RAM loaded with Android 7.
Android phone with Zeiss lens and 2K display expected
The forthcoming Android smartphone manufactured by Nokia is expected to integrate Zeiss lens paired with a 2K display. Expected to be unveiled at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona in 2017, the upcoming Nokia smartphone features either a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch display variants.
According to rumors, the handset flaunts 2K QHD display. Hence, you can infer that the phone belongs to the premium high-end category. You can also expect the addition of a Snapdragon 820 processor, which looks out-dated given the face that majority of the handset are equipped with Snapdragon 821 chipset burned inside the phone.
The main highlight of the new phone will be the integration of a Zeiss lens for the rear camera. If you look at the Nokia feature phone released several years back, they did ship with this lens.
New Android phone will have water-resistant body
Moreover, you can also expect a metal unibody design paired with water-resistant features. As of writing this, we don’t have any image to confirm the real credibility of the leaks. Hence, you should accept this fact only with a pinch of salt.
The rumor mills gathered momentum when the news about Nokia’s comeback was confirmed recently. According to industry analysts, the presence of Nokia at the upcoming MWC 2017 has attracted several enthusiasts.
In 2015, Nokia granted an exclusive license to HMD Global to manufacture Nokia-branded smartphones and tablets for the next 10 years.
Based on available information, we can confirm that Nokia will be launching its first smartphone since the Nokia N1 tablet. There are rumors that Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri will be delivering a speech at the MWC 2017 while launching the new phone.
