Nokia lives? Two ‘high-end’ Android Nougat smartphones leaked

Nokia is planning to launch two new smartphones running on Google’s new Android Nougat operating system, apparently.

A new report by specialist blog NokiaPowerUser claims that Nokia is currently working on two high-end Android smartphones that will feature “premium metallic design and the famous Nokia feel”. The website cites its “trusted sources” for this information, so we can’t verify these details unfortunately – take this with due caution.

According to the blog, the new phones will run Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box. That’s the new Google OS that was announced earlier this year, but it’s currently only in beta.

Apparently, one of the devices will feature a 5.2-inch display, while the other handset will sport a larger 5.5-inch screen. The blog says that display resolution isn’t confirmed yet, but that we “can expect a QHD resolution OLED display”. Other possible (but not confirmed) features include a fingerprint scanner, an improved Z-Launcher UI, and better image sensors that may “be the most sensitive ever” used on a Nokia smartphone.

Regarding release date, the blog expects that both phones will be unveiled “towards the end of 2016”, but that this may be pushed back to the first quarter of 2017. Back in 2015, Nokia’s CEO Rajiv Suri confirmed that the company would re-enter the mobile phone market in 2016. And then during Mobile World Congress 2016, Suri revealed the phone would be a premium device.
