In the “unknown” devices section of GFXBench information about a potential Nokia-branded device emerged. GFXBench shows a device with Snapdragon 835, and that’s the fourth time (1, 2, 3) we hear about Snapdragon 835 in an upcoming Nokia product. The rest of the specifications are:
Android 7.0 (FIH Edition)
18.4-inch 2K screen
Adreno 540 GPU
Back camera photo size: 12MP (4160×3120)
Back camera video resolution: UHD (4K) (3840×2160)
Front camera photo size and video resolution same as the back camera
First off, this is not a 18.4-inch device. In fact, we think this probably isn’t a tablet. If we look at the camera, why the hell would someone put a 4K capable front and back camera on a tablet. And if we remember the Nokia D1C, what turned out to be Nokia 6, GFXBench showed 13.8-inch screen, but now we Know that the real screen size is 5.5-inches. Also, the supposed 18.4-inch tablet features a pedometer, SIM card slot, and a range of sensors more to be found on a smartphone, than on a tablet. Thus, we could conservatively assume that we are looking at the specifications of HMD’s upcoming flagship, the P1.
NokiaPowerusers published the news claiming this is an 8.4-inch tablet, and it could be possible that Nokia is also developing a tablet, but if we count in the recent leaks, it seems more that we are here looking at a smartphone. If this leaked device in GFXBench is a smartphone, and we combine it with previous rumors (found here, here, and here, the specifications of an alleged Nokia P1 could be:
5.3/5.7-inch 2K screen
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
4GB/6GB of RAM
64GB/128GB/256GB of internal memory
Android 7.0 Nougat
HMD announced that on the 26th of February new devices will be revealed to the public. Maybe one of the device, together with the global version of Nokia 6, will be a Nokia flagship or a 8.4-inch tablet.
