HMD GLOBAL HAS SO FAR TALKED ABOUT ONLY ANDROID SMARTPHONES

However, considering that HMD Global has so far talked about only Android smartphones, there are very slim chances that a Windows 10 Mobile-based Nokia smartphone sees the light of day. Well, not a smartphone, the company might unveil a tablet running on Windows 10.

As per the leaked specifications, Nokia P1 will sport 6GB of RAM and will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The phone is expected to feature a 23 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and come with a Quad HD display resolution.

Last week, the company received tremendous response from consumers in China in the first flash sale of the comeback smartphone, the Nokia 6, in China.
