Expect New Nokia Flagship Smartphones Powered by the Snapdragon 835 Later This Year

Nokia 5

A few days ago at Mobile World Congress, HMD Global unveiled four Nokia branded devices that include the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the Nokia 3310. These were entry level and mid-range devices from the company.

With these devices out of the way, Nokia is believed to be working on high end devices that will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. According to a report out of China, there will be at least two flagship devices from Nokia that will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor that will be released by the end of the year.

The Snapdragon 835 is the next chipset from Qualcomm and is expected to power some of the flagship devices this year. It has already been confirmed that this will be the chipset on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium and probably the soon to be released, Samsung Galaxy S8. Nokia does not want to be left behind and that is why the company plans to include the processor on two of its devices this year.

Introducing the Snapdragon 835 to Nokia devices will be a step up as the Nokia 5 and 6 devices are powered by the Snapdragon 430 processor that is not considered a flagship chipset.

Besides the processor, the next Nokia flagship is expected to come with high end specs including 6GB of RAM and a 23MP camera.  Nokia devices have always been known for their superior cameras and it looks like the company isn’t abandoning that anytime soon.

One thing the company is abandoning is the Carl Zeiss technology. This was the technology Nokia used on most of its cameras but now the company has come out to reveal that it will no longer use the technology with its upcoming devices.

Even though we will not be seeing Carl Zeiss Optics on Nokia devices anytime soon, I still expect Nokia devices to have exceptional cameras as they have had for years.
