A new rumor out of China claims to shed some light on Nokia’s future flagship smartphones, which could be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in February next year. While the new rumor does seem to confirm some of the previously rumored details, there are some contradictions as well.
While a previous report had suggested the Nokia flagship duo will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, the new rumor says that will not be the case. Instead, the smartphones will be powered by the older and slightly less powerful Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset under the hood. While there is no significant performance gap between the two chipsets, it should be noted that the Snapdragon 820 will be outdated by the time the Nokia flagship smartphones launch. Qualcomm has already “announced” the Snapdragon 835, which is expected to start showing up on devices starting early next year.
The latest rumor claims the Nokia flagship duo could arrive with a 5.2” and a 5.5” sized display, with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution. While the display type hasn’t been talked about in the latest rumor, the previous report mentioned that Nokia would be using an AMOLED display for both the smartphones. The rumor also reveals that the cameras at the back will feature Carl Zeiss optics, similar to Nokia flagships of the past. However, unlike those smartphones, the upcoming duo will feature a premium metal construction. They will be waterproof as well, so you won’t need to worry about any accidental liquid damage.
While the rumored specs do seem believable, we still recommend that you take above info with a grain or two of salt.
