GFXBench has listed among its recent benchmark tests not one but two new Nokia devices: the Nokia Heart and an unnamed 18.4-inch tablet. The company also confirmed it was working on a flagship smartphone with a Snapdragon 835 chip.
The leaks come after the company launched its comeback device, the Nokia 6, exclusively in China a couple of days ago.
Under the HMD Global brand, the handset reportedly sold in under one minute during a flash sale.
The $245 Nokia 6 will go on sale again on January 25, also in limited quantities for a short time. This business model follows practices from local competitors like Xiaomi and OnePlus.
The Nokia Heart could launch next month
The Nokia Heart seems to be the same device previously known under the codename Nokia E1, an entry-level smartphone with above-average specs running Android 7.0 Nougat.
According to the specs listed on GFXBench, the Heart will sport a 5.2-inch display with 720p resolutions. The prototype handset seen in leaked pictures show no physical buttons and a white finish on what it looks like a body mostly made out of plastic.
Under the hood, the Nokia Heart will have a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 430 along with an Adreno 505 GPU courtesy of Qualcomm. It will ship with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, presumably expandable.
Other than that, the latest Nokia device will come with rear and front-facing cameras, at 13 and 8 MP respectively. No word on price or release date, but judging by the specs it should be cheaper than the Nokia 6 and rumors suggest it could launch in time for the Mobile World Congress next month.
Nokia’s 18.4-inch tablet will carry a Snapdragon 835
Nokia’s massive tablet has yet to get a name, but surely it will be powerful. Beginning with an 18.4-inches and 2560 x 1440 resolution display, it will rival Samsung’s Galaxy View with top-notch specs.
The portable device will pack a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and Adreno 540 GPU. It will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
The tablet won’t be limited to Wi-Fi, as it will support 4G LTE connections through a single SIM slot. It will also support Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and it will run Android “FIH Edition,” a version of 7.0 Nougat.
Other features of the device include two cameras, both with the same 12 MP resolution, except only the rear one has a LED flash.
Nokia’s next flagship may arrive later in the year
Nokia China published a post on its official Weibo account responding to fan questions regarding a rumored Snapdragon 835-flagship smartphone in the works. As it turns out, it is true, and it may launch in late 2017.
The company said the handset was still under development and that it would take some time to come out. However, earlier speculation suggests Nokia and HMD Global are planning to release over five Android devices this year alone.
Answering a different question, the iconic firm said it was also working on Windows Phone devices. The Chinese division will keep people posted with news about these upcoming phones.
