Based off a report from NokiaPowerUser, Nokia China on Weibo replied to a user and it confirmed that it was working on a phone that will hold the Snapdragon 835 CPU, however, it added that it will take time for the company to release the device.
NokiaPowerUser shared a screenshot of the reply which was posted on January 8, 2017. Within the reply, Nokia’s account mentions that since the Snapdragon 835 has only recently been launched, it will take them some time to be able to launch the new phones.
