HMD Global which is exclusively developing Nokia smartphones is going to be present during the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.

There are rumors that the launch of Nokia’s Android-based P1 smartphone at MWC could also be widely expected. Rumors also say that the smartphone will be based on Sharp Aquos Xx3 that was launched in Japan last year.

According to a report from a Russian website Worket, the Nokia P1 will come with a 5.3-inch display, Gorilla Glass 5, Snapdragon 835 SoC, Android Nougat out-of-the-box and 6GB of RAM.

The 128GB variant will come at a starting price of $800 (roughly Rs 54,500) while the 256GB variant will come at around $950 (roughly Rs 64,700).

Last year, Microsoft Mobile announced the sale of its feature phone business, described as an ‘unwanted extra’ to HMD Global, a Finland-based company made up of mostly ex-Nokia staff. HMD signed a licensing agreement with Nokia Corporation giving HMD sole use of the “Nokia” brand on mobile phones and tablets worldwide for the next decade, and cellular standard-essential patent licenses, as well as design rights it acquired from Microsoft.

The company recently released Nokia 6 which currently is a China-exclusive smartphone and will only be available through at 1699 CNY (roughly Rs. 16,750).

The company has no plans to launch the Nokia 6 in other markets though it confirmed that the “Nokia 6 marks the first step for the Nokia brand into Android smartphones with more to come in H1 2017.”

The Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and it comes with a 5.5-inch full-HD display wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC with X6 LTE modem designed for excellent battery life and superior graphics performance. Under the hood is 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage.
