Nokia P1 to be announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Nokia is coming back this year. Earlier this month, HMD Global, the company has the exclusive rights to use the Nokia brand name on mobile devices, announced that it will launch the first Android Nokia-branded smartphone dubbed Nokia 6. The new device belongs to a mid-range smartphone, but Nokia 6 will be available exclusively in the Chinese market. If you now live in other regions, do not worry because it appears that more Nokia-branded handsets will be unveiled this year.


According to sources, Nokia will introduce its first Android-based high-end smartphone dubbed Nokia P1 at this year’s Mobile World Congress in February. In reality, last year, rumors were making sound that Nokia might release its first Android-based smartphone, named Nokia P1, but Nokia has never confirmed its existence. Sources also say that Nokia P1 will be based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3, which was released in Japan, but the new Nokia P1 is believed to come with much enhanced specs. Accordingly, Nokia P1 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 83 processor along with 6GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

In terms of cameras, Nokia P1 will feature a 22.6 MP rear shooter Zeiss-certified. Besides, the new device will sport IP57 rating, meaning that it will be dust and water resistant. Nokia P1 sports a 5.3 inch display protected by Gorilla Glass 5 with Full HD resolution, fingerprint scanner, and a 3500 mAh battery with quick charge support.

According to sources, Nokia P1 will run Android 7.0 Nougat at launch, and come with a $800 price tag for the 128 GB model and $900 for the 256 GB model. This means that Nokia P1 will compete directly with top-tier smartphones this year including Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Apple iPhone 8, so there will be an intense fight among smartphone makers this year.
