Nokia Android Phone With Snapdragon 835 SoC in the Works, Company Hints

HMD Global, the company that owns rights to the Nokia brand, has just dropped a hint that the company may soon reveal a new high-end flagship smartphone. While responding to some user queries on Chinese social network Weibo, Nokia’s account seemingly confirmed that the company is working on a Snapdragon 835-based smartphone. The company however added that this may take time which means Nokia’s smartphone featuring a Snapdragon 835 processor may come out late this year.

On a query (via NokiaPowerUser) about rumoured Snapdragon 835 smartphone, Nokia’s Weibo account replied, “Understood your mood, because the new high-end Snapdragon SoC has just released, please give us some time to prepare, when the time will be made public.” [Translated by Google Translate]

Nokia’s response on the Snapdragon 835 query clarifies that the company isn’t ruling out any possibility of a smartphone featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Though, the company is very clear that this will take some time.

A Snapdragon 835-powered Nokia P1 smartphone was leaked recently and is expected to be the premium offering from Nokia. It is rumoured to start around $800 (roughly Rs. 54,500) and feature top-notch innards including 5.3-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 with either full-HD or QHD screen resolution. The Nokia P1 is also expected to pack 6GB of RAM. The smartphone is rumoured to launch at MWC 2017.
