New render offers first glimpse at purported Android-powered Nokia


A new render could give us our first glimpse at Nokia’s new Android-powered smartphone. The device is said to be named the P1, and was reportedly developed in partnership with Sharp.

That could explain why the device looks very similar to the newly-announced Sharp Aquos P1, which is currently exclusive to Taiwan. Given its limited availability, it could make a lot of sense to launch a Nokia-branded model in other markets.

Of course, the device won’t actually be made by Nokia. After the Finnish firm sold its handset business to Microsoft, it is simply licensing its name to other manufacturers to use on their own devices. In this case, that manufacturer is Foxconn.

Assuming this device is a rebranded Aquos P1, then, we can expect it to offer a 5.3-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for expansion.

The device is also likely to get the same 22.6-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a fingerprint scanner, and a 3,000mAh battery.

Don’t get your hopes up just yet, though, Nokia fans. We can’t confirm this render is genuine, and it wouldn’t be difficult for someone to slap a Nokia logo on an image of the Aquos P1. With that said, we’re going to take this leak with a pinch of salt until it’s confirmed.
