Alleged Nokia P flagship leaks, may still be in the cards with Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB RAM

Alleged Nokia P flagship leaks, may still be in the cards with Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB RAM

HMD, the company that scooped the rights to sell phones with the Nokia logo, already announced that it will be issuing Android handsets with the brand in Q1, likely prepping them for announcement at the MWC expo in February. From most leaks so far, these are expected to be midrange endeavors, but before that we've been hearing rumors that a Nokia flagship might be on the way, too.

The tale of the tape today, however, is a Nokia leak coming from the Wild East of the Weibo blogosphere, depicting what looks like a prototype of a Nokia phone, and spilling out some of its specs which are, to say the least, pretty intriguing. The source claims that this is the rumored Nokia P flagship, and it is supposed to house a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6 GB RAM, and a 23 MP camera with Zeiss lens. Previous rumors also indicated that the phone might have Quad HD display resolution. 

Make of this what you will, but we doubt that this puppy, if real, will be unveiled at the MWC. HMD mentioned that it will start small, and will be releasing more Android handsets throughout 2017, so the eventual Nokia flagship might come at a later date, but we guess a lot of the future HMD plans will be revealed come MWC time anyway, so stay tuned for the details.

My money is also ready. This is the kind of phone I am waiting from HMD. A flagship device. I hope there will be a 2mp over sample photo without the loss of quality.

To those who're hopeful about Nokia, allow me to burst your bubble... Sorry for being a bearer of bad news but... Things are a lot different for Nokia now... Before, it had practically ZERO competitor... Well sure, there was Blackberry but when it came to low to mid-range devices, The Nokia was KING... The 'Berry was more of an "Apple" then, if you know what I mean...! With emphasis on premium cutting edge features and a better end user experience than affordability... And now, we all are well aware of what happened to the little 'berry... "The play time is over" for Blackberry, I fear... And if you think that Nokia can punch through the highly competitive Android Market and come out as the leader then you're mistaken... HIGHLY MISTAKEN, in fact... There are people who'd never let go of their Samsungs and Apples and Xiaomis and... Sonys...? People are stilling hanging on to their Note 7s even after all those reports of "incineration"... And from what I've understand; One have to pry their beloved Samsungs and iPhones out of the clutches of their dead cold hands, metaphorically speaking... Android isn't Series 60... Oh well... Only time will tell, eh? G'Day!

First of all greenman I will have to say that if it is you on this picture, you are particularly ugly and we easily understand why you are so negative towards life and why you talk so much non sense being as unlucky a you are. Now, let's speak two seconds about the non sense that you say and demonstrate how you are ignorant. Let me teach you that in the days back before Nokia had been infiltrated by Flop, Nokia was NOT at all the only smartphone manufacturer and, also, standard non-smartphones where highly competitive against Nokia, and if we consider the hundreds and hundreds of Windows Mobile 2003, up to 6.1 (hundreds of hundreds of different PDAs and smartphones flooding from everywhere with Dell, HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericsson), your brain will easily accept that it was not at all because Nokia was the "only one on the market" as you say but is was because Nokia knew how to differentiate from the mass. Nokia had the best hardware. Th most advanced technology (I can remember how I was shocked when I saw the N95 which had ALL the tech available at the time concentrated in one single smartphone, or the N93 that was a widely available smartphone with a... "computer class" hard drive). THIS is what made Nokia stay at the top, and not at all the non sense that you bluntly spill without shame here. One thing that will are people buy massively Nokia is first of all brand recognition, then the différenciation. Windows Mobile 6 was like Android today, withouth the open source part and people where hardly making money on it because as today they where just afraid of bringing new technology to us. What wil' make Nokia blast Samsung away is their capacity to bring for example things like PureView with Xenon flash and high quality hardware. It is only this year Samsung started to understand that and unfortunately for them it is to late because Nokia is back, and people don't have a bad look on Nokia as on Samsung with the exploding batteries.

Techie, is that you...? Well, judging by your words, your insults and of course, the length of this 'essay', I think you're either him or at least inspired from his handy 'work'...! Anyhow, looking past the personal blows and insults (I'm at an age where I don't give a dime about insults, so don't exhaust yourself the next time cause it won't work...!) you've some fair points... But whatever I said was in light of the fate of Blackberry... Nokia was the first to introduce Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 OS to the mobile world... And... It SINKED Nokia...! So apparently, The Nokia name alone isn't what one should call "bankable"...! The general mass care less about the brand, when it comes to Android Smartphones... Why do you think once unknown Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Oppo and One Plus etc are making headlines...??? Are they "innovative"...? To some extent, they're... The Mi Max, for instance, is indeed an innovation but the main reason they're rising is because of CHEAP price-tags... OnePlus is a good example here... THE GENERAL MASS DON'T NEED INNOVATION as much as they need cheap price-tags... Blackberry Priv, anyone? If Nokia make cheap phones, bravo... If not, no bravo... G'Day!

Let me tell you greenman. Because the reality don't seems to integrate inside of your poor neurons. It seems that the more and more you speak your illogical bulls**t, the more and more we recognize that you are completely unable to give basic intelligent comment on a simple subject like this. First, you talk about Blackberry as if this news ever mentioned from close or from far this company. Even Windows I would understand because it was before closely related to Nokia. If you had not talk about this, you would have showed that you are capable of talking smartly and people would have listen to you. Next, should you happen to understand what you read until now pretending that you know correctly what what "sinked" Nokia, it is not at all their brand name because "Windows Phone" or whatever the name was still - somewhat relevant UNTIL Microsoft decided to ditch Nokia's name last year and it is only then Windows Phone completely dissappeared from the surface of the stores. When you begin to see that you don't understand anything in what youself wrote, you will start to see that you are incompetent to talk about what you try to write about here. Even with a bad OS as Windows Phone, Nokia still survived and was having some sales even if it was some percent. Once the name went away and became Microsoft the Windows Mobile platform dissappeared. Imagine Nokia was on Android two years ago. People obviously see that you are ignorant on this subject. And third. You come to talk about cheap Chinese phones and I would like to teach to you that people don't buy Chinese phone because it is "cheap". People buy Chinese phone because there is NO alternative from big brands like the Samsung or Apple. People will forever go where they have a brand name and a minimum of assurance according to brand name instead of just a low price. If there is a cheap Samsung and a cheap Chinese phone, tell me where people will always go. Most of the brands abandoned entry level and mid-range phones, and it is not because of the Chinese it is partly because they always want all the money they can get. Nokia will give a cheap ass phone with Android and a minimum if hardware quality and everyone will throw those Chinese cheap fragile phones. Same when Nokia will make high end phones with innovative features like a beast camera and top notch technology.

You interest me... I don't know what to call you, Techie... You're either a stubborn or just lack the ability to look past your personal preferences and opinions and see things with an open mind... I quote: "People buy Chinese phone because there is NO alternative from big brands like the Samsung or Apple. People will forever go where they have a brand name and a minimum of assurance according to brand name instead of just a low price." End quote. The big brands like Samsung, Oppo, HTC & Huawei, all have affordable phones, if you look past your own personal 'vendetta' and do some Google... Cheap phones, well under $200... Why people don't buy them according to 'statistics'...? Reason is simply; they lack a respectable hardware and you're mostly paying for the "BRAND NAME" which is worthless, in my opinion... Galaxy J1 Ace, for instance, has a terrible Spreadtrum SoC with a Dual Core Cortex-A7 and 512MB of RAM and a 4" Display, you can't get any lower than that these days, unless we are talking about feature phones... For the same price, you can get an Oppo with metal uni-body and a Snapdragon 410 with 2GB of RAM and a crystal clear 5" HD Display... And with Xiaomi, you can get a Snapdragon 430 Octa Core with 3GB of RAM... Galaxy J1:http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_j1-6907.php Redmi 3S Prime:http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_3s_prime-8250.php Notice the price group... 3/10 And the Xiaomi I've mention was sold out in 8min:http://www.gsmarena.com/newscomm-19888.php Care to find me a link or source where The Galaxy J1 sold out even in 8 days...? Your inability to understand simple things amuse me... Not everyone cares about the brand like you do... Go figure...

It is been proven that you are mentally incompetent to talk about a subject like this. The complexity of an easy subject like this for your soul is day after day remarkable for all of us. You start by comparing a phone from 2015 and a phone from 2016 which is two time more expensive. What would happen if you didn't choose a such illogical example as this. I am not going to tell you how for a little while you low IQ seemed again to be even lower to the whole world who will read your comment. Stop for a second and start to make this clear and increase the size of this fact in your memory. If Samsung really wanted to blow away those "Redmi" things, they would have done it with a swipe of their little finger. And this is called BRAND RECOGNITION. See, it would be fair to say that not only you can't read, you also can't think. What I told you in my last comment is that Samsung and other HTC wants all the money so what they do they focus on high end material and not cheap phones. The simple fact that Samsung is Samsung, if they wanted they would smoke those cheap Chinese non sense that you seem to be so in love with. And this is thanks to what you forget? Marketing. If Samsung does serious marketing on those cheap phones and whether you like it or not, nobody will buy those "Redmi" or whatever else. It is not because it is cheap. At the same price people goes to buy what they have confidence in, and what that has reputation and what they see on every newspaper. Coming back to Nokia. They have the brand. They have the tech. They have the marketing. This is the full combination that will explode Samsung at the other side of the universe. Create for yourself this image : you are a low Chinese unrecognizable cheapphone lover and you seem completely lost in what you try to momentarily defend.

Allow me to edumacate you on Windows Phone. Nokia was NOT the first to introduce WP7. It was Samsung, LG, Dell and HTC. Nokia came in with the Lumia 800 on WP7.5 aka Mango. Also, BlackBerry is far from dead.

You will understand that your simple "fact" is a dust on the ground because it was Nokia that was quickly after the big predominant monster promoting Windows Phone.

You said in post #29: Nokia will give a cheap ass phone with Android and a minimum if hardware quality and everyone will throw those Chinese cheap fragile phones. How can you speak for everyone, claiming everyone will throw "Chinese cheap fragile phones" when Nokia launches a "cheap ass" Android phone... Are you realluy speaking for all those who buys Android phones? If that sentence isn't classic fanboyism, then I honestly wonder what it is!

It matters nothing that Nokia became the preeminent player in Windows Phone. My "fact" remains irrefutable whether your fanboy a$$ likes it or not. Nokia was not first and that ain't changing, history has been written.

"It matters nothing that Nokia became the preeminent player in Windows Phone. My "fact" remains irrefutable whether your fanboy a$$ likes it or not. Nokia was not first and that ain't changing, history has been written." As I told you, by the time you will start to view that what you said isn't even the main point either of this news or either of my post you will close your mouth. Don't you even care about using your brains and to seem more intelligent than the people you call fanboys. Yes Nokia was not *literraly* the first, and then what ?

Nokia should re-enter the market by introducing just two phones; a low end phone with a price below $160, and another high end model like the suggested above.

That picture is so old, and I'm pretty sure is some kind of feature phone, those lines down the front look like a keyboard.
