We’ve got news that two new phones under the Nokia brand name is expected to launch any moment from now. The smartphones will be released by Finnish company, HMD global Oy which purchased part of Nokia’s feature phone business from Microsoft earlier this year but both devices will bear the Nokia brand name.
The specifications of the phones have been disclosed as well. There would be a 5.2-inch display version and a bigger 5.5-inch display version. Both phones will run on Z-Launcher System based on Android’s latest Android N operating system.
Other specifications revealed about the Nokia devices include that they will both rock an all-metal body, will be powered by Snapdragon 820 processor and also come with IP68 waterproof and dustproof certifcation. What this means is that the phone is completely dustproof and protected from immersion in water with a depth of more than 1 meter. The usage case they’ll feature is sealed Rain, splashing and accidental submersion in water. It is noteworthy that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships also feature IP68 certification.
Previous leaks had predicted that the expected Nokia phone will feature a massive 22.6MP rear camera unit but we don’t know which of the version that’s going to be. It was also disclosed that it will carry a price tag starting at 3000 yuan (about $500). Now that is considered fair if compared with the market price of flagships with 2K display, all-metal body, Snapdragon 820 chipset and IP68 waterproof and dustproof technology, priced at 3,000 yuan.
