Nokia's rumored Android powered phones appear in photograph?
Just the other day, we passed along the specs for a rumored pair of Android powered Nokia handsets. Today, a photograph allegedly showing these two handsets have surfaced. One features a 5.2-inch screen, while the other carries a 5.5-inch display. Both have a 1440 x 2560 resolution and are driven by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. That means they both carry a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.

The 5.5-inch model could feature a 22.6MP rear camera, and the phones will both carry IP68 certification for protection from dust and water. And both phones will come with a metal-clad body. Android 7.0 Nougat is pre-installed, and as you can tell from the accompanying photo of the phones, the Z-Launcher UI is loaded with the model.

We could see the new Android powered Nokia handsets unveiled before the end of the year. The 5.5-inch model is expected to be sold at a price of $500 USD.

Thanks for the tip!

This is a very old render of Nokia's tablet.

Since Microsoft bought Nokia's phone division. I have a good feeling that Microsoft has their paws on these devices in some fashion or another. Especially with that z-launcher.

IIRC, Nokia (the part not bought out by MS) was barred from selling smartphones for a certain period, and I believe that agreement ends either this year or next.

This is the reason I don't trust Indian or Chinese news sources. They use old renders to create a new news and try to spice things up.

Like I said in the post 'Alleged iPhone 7 Plus photo', Alan F. is losing it. He is leaking so bad all over PA without any proper sources. :/

They should've made this decision a long time and probably we would have seen another high end phones other than Samsung and Apple. Anyways I think two high end phones at least and one is Nexus will give them a great start. But that's just a Man boy dreams.

If same old great pureview tech camera then I will be among those million buyers. Otherwise, there is a plenty of fish in Android's sea.

No no. Google was helping Samsung tone down their UI. I'm hoping that means Nougat comes to the note 7 sooner than later.

The volume buttons are ridiculously high up for such big phones.

Lg & Sony will struggle more once the Nokia name is back in the mobile market, even Samsung will be worried as they are still struggling with reliable updates as Nokia have always been very in the software section, Mr Elop will always Haunt the Nokia name and the Nokia Board were so stupid allow him ever to become there chairman but when your struggling Money seems to matter now days

Samsung update their smartphones regularly and constantly in the last 2, 3 years, you don't need to bother with that.

The thing is Microsoft owns Nokia phone division. I can't help to think that Microsoft still has their paws all over these devices in some way or form.

I hope they have capacitive buttons.
