Nokia P1 Rumors
Being the most awaited mobile of this year, we cannot expect that this flagship device escaped the rumor mill in any way. Ranging from memory space to camera specs to having features yet to be even released, word of mouth has left no part of the device without deep speculations.
It is expected to have a 4GB or 6GB RAM, QuadCore Snapdragon 835 and a 23MP main Camera with nothing less than a Carl-ZEISS lens. (ZEISS lenses are used widely in the field of cinematography for mirror-less system cameras and range-finders.)
It is also rumored that the handset will function on a not-yet-released version of Android 8.0 and be of a metal build(which is not at all Nokia’s forte) and have the aforementioned IP68 Water and dust protection.
Also, after the announcement of a possible P1 in early May, pictures of the smart phone began making its appearance on the internet in late June, capturing the attention of a lot of excited customers. Sadly, those turned out to be images of Sharp Aquos P1, a device designed by engineers in Infocus and Sharp. However, judging from the released specs, there seems to exist a possible close similarity between the two in terms of figure and outer dimension features.
Nokia P1 Leaked Images
We are still not having any Nokia P1 Images. All the images circulating over social media and other websites seems to be fake concepts made by people. Nokia also hasn’t spoken in regard to the images of the phone.
