Nokia P

According to lasts reports, the Nokia P will be the flagship smartphone for the once iconic phone maker. It is said to recruit Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chipset (MSM8998) to comfortably handle whatever you may throw at it.  Furthermore, it may feature 6gigs of RAM under the hood.

The new phone will feature Snapdragon X16 modem and Quick Charge 4 technology which is 20 percent faster than existing QC 3. That’s not all, at the rear it sports a 23-megapixel ZEISS Lens primary camera.

Nokia C1

The second Nokia Android based smartphone could be the Nokia C1. As renders suggest, it will be a compact and slim phone which flaunts slightly unorthodox design carved out of metal. It will feature slim bezels with a comparatively smaller chin and forehead.

What’s really exciting about the phone is that it boasts of a dual rear camera setup i.e. 16-megapixel sensor paired with 12-megapixel sensor and Xenon triple LED flash. The C1 is supposed to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC along with 4GB DDR4 RAM.  It expected to come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants.

Nokia Z2 Plus

The next rumored phone from former popular Finnish mobile makers is Z2 Plus which was spotted on the benchmarking site Geekbench. There is every chance that it makes its debut with a different label.

As per the Geekbench listing, the Nokia Z2 Plus will enthrall on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset ticking at 1.7GHz and clubbed with 4gigs of RAM. Information related to its display size, resolution, battery size and camera optics are still unknown. It is likely to be priced below Nokia P and C1 somewhere close to mid-budget range. If that’s the case, likes of Lenovo Zuk Edge, OnePlus 3T, Nexus 6P will have a tough time competing.

Nokia D1C

One of the first new Nokia smartphones that made a big splash was D1C. The affordable phone is expected to arrive in two screen sizes: 5-inch and 5.5-inch.  The display of both variants will have 1080p resolution and both will be powered by power efficient Snapdragon 430 chipset.

The smaller variant gets 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM and 13-megapixel rear snapper while the taller one features 3GB RAM, 32GB on-board storage and 16-megapixel primary shooter.

It looks like Nokia has a strong top order to open its second innings. It is possible that not all of the four aforementioned Nokia phone make it to the real world or they may arrive with different identities since nothing is official as of now. Luckily we won’t have to wait much longer.
