It looks like Nokia is trying once again to get their devices running Android out on the market. The last time this happened was with the rumored Nokia C1 that never came to be and may never be a thing. But these two new Nokia handsets running Android may take the place of that long rumored device. Supposedly, the two devices will be announced either later this year (maybe Q4?) or early next year and “trusted sources” state both phones will have a metal body mixed with Nokia’s past designs.
The phones will reportedly feature 5.2 inch and 5.5 inch OLED displays with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, they will be running the most updated version of Android — Android 7.0 Nougat — with the Nokia Z Launcher (which is still in beta) skin on top, water and dust resistance thanks to IP68, a fingerprint scanner on board, and a new camera thanks to a $1.35 billion development effort. Rumors point towards the new camera being the most sensitive ever along with sensors that’ll respond to finger gestures. This is much like the “touch and hover” feature that the Microsoft/Nokia McLaren project had, before it never became a thing. Nokia also wouldn’t be the one’s developing the devices if said rumors are true. It’ll be HMD Global, a Finnish company who got rights to Nokia’s mobile brand from Microsoft this past May.
Of course with all this being “reported,” it’s best to take it all with a grain of salt like usual until an announcement is actually made. So, what do you think about Nokia possibly coming out with two high end Android devices later this year or early next year? Do you think it’ll flop or gain traction with the right market?
