Front of 2017 mid-range Nokia handset comes to light?

Next year, the Nokia brand will return to the smartphone world thanks to HMD. The latter bought the rights to use the Nokia name on handsets, and in 2017 it plans to roll out flagship and mid-range models powered by Android. Just the other day, we showed you the front and back of what is supposed to be a Nokia P flagship model. This will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, contain 6GB of RAM, and feature a 23MP Zeiss lens on the back of the phone.

As we said, besides the top shelf Nokia P, we also expect a mid-range model to be wearing the Nokia brand name. A photo that claims to be showing the front of this device surfaced this morning, wearing a 5.2-inch display. Both the Nokia P and this mid-range phone could end up being displayed in Barcelona during MWC 2017.    

Of course, there is the possibility that this picture has nothing to do with the upcoming new Android powered Nokia models, which means that you should take this story and the accompanying image with a grain of salt.

Looks similar to the Nokia N900. I loved that phone!

Hey buddy, look what Alan F. wrote "The latter bought the rights to use the Nokia name on handsets" Please, tell Alan F. how Nokia didn't sell the rights to use Nokia and how they licensed it. I love how this article popped up conveniently to show how biased and moronic you are. Thank you Alan F. for proving my point, albeit unknowingly. Background information, Nokia licensed HMD Global the rights to produce Nokia phones for ten years. Similar to how BlackBerry SOLD THE RIGHTS to TCL to produce phones in their name. I love when people prove their own ignorance. Good day. P.S. Glad to see the Nokia name again. Hopefully it lasts.

You're absolutely hopeless, and extremely butthurt because I set you straight on the BlackBerry/TCL licensing deal. You're in so much pain because the article you originally trolled in ended up backfiring on you. Lmao! Here, I have something for you: Please complete the form and send it in. A rep should be in contact with you in about 48 hours after they initially receive it. Be aware, it can take up to 30 days for a resolution to be reached. In the meantime, might I suggest aloe and a cool, damp cloth for the pain? Enjoy your holiday, loser! Lmao!

Okay, let's ignore your nonsensical rambling and deflection. Back on topic, Alan F. said exactly what I did, except it involved two different entities. I'm waiting for you to correct him in one of your swear-filled, childish, and delusional tirades.

No deflecting is being done here, as I'm not required to take part in any topic that you wish to discuss. I already proved my point in this article right here: and you even admitted that I am correct. The only one being childish over this is you, as you're now chasing me down across PA articles in a pathetic attempt to avenge your wounded ego. When you respond, and I know you will, as your megalomania just won't allow you to accept the "L" that I handed to you in two articles now, just refer to this post right here, as it will refer to the article that I linked in which I handed you the "L". Let it go and move on, dude.

I admitted that you were right about what a licensing agreement, because that's exactly what I had said. TCL bought the rights to use the BlackBerry name and in turn the ability to design, produce, and sell BlackBerry handsets, just as this article states that HMD Global bought the rights to use Nokia and in turn do the same exact thing. You're trying to tell me I'm wrong when we're both saying the same thing. It's like, say we both like the color red, but you're trying to tell me that I don't like the color red because you like it and we couldn't possibly like the same thing because you're a biased and frankly, a somewhat sad individual. But please, show me what signs of megalomania I've exhibited when you're the one consistently shouting "I'm right, you're wrong, you lose, I win, swear-word here, swear-word there, unimaginative internet insult, blah blah blah"

Lmao! Just like I predicted. Your megalomania is literally making you carry an argument to an article that has absolutely nothing to do with what we are arguing about. And the fact you just tried to say I'm the one that will respond with a childish and delusional tirade, when YOU'RE the one that's calling names, is both hypocritical and pathetic. Dude, grow up, put your megalomania to the side, act like an adult, and let it go. Now seriously, I'm not going to commandeer another article just to prove you wrong again, when this article has absolutely nothing to do with BlackBerry and TCL. Go out and enjoy the eve of Christmas Eve, or something. Oh, and see comment #13.

17. phldlphn unregistered

Actually, it has everything to do with it. And I've said it two or three times now. HMD and Nokia have entered into an agreement akin to the agreement that TCL and BlackBerry have, Alan F. used the same words I did to describe the agreement between Nokia and HMD that I used to describe BlackBerry and TCL. What aren't you understanding? It's clear as day and the only thing you've proved to everyone is that you're nowhere near as knowledgeable or well-informed about anything as you appeared to be. Yes, I saw comment 13, a glaring example of the megalomania you accuse me of having. Alright buddy, take care, seek help. Seriously, seek help.

Disgusting patent troll AKA Nokia, these phones will be in the bargain bin within a month, assuming they're even actually released.

Well, If someone steals your car, don't call the police, because you will a disgusting troll. Oh! You are already!

Ctdog, as if the company you worship aren't major patent trolls themselves. But oops I forgot, it's 100% okay for them to do it and sue over petty things. But when the tides are turned, suddenly it's a problem.

Nokia spent more than 100 BILLION EUROS on research and development for mobile and you call them Troll? while others like Apple spent almost nothing and reap all benefits.

It will be fair to say that Nokia is going to shred everything in 2017! PureView FTW! Bring it on King of the Kings!
