While the mid-range Nokia 6 might never set the sails beyond China, HMD Global might soon unveil a Nokia flagship you’ve been yawning for. The handset in question is the Nokia P1 and according to leaks from Russian Publication Worket, all bets suggest it is launching just around the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this February.
The Nokia P1 is said to be based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3 with quoted figures suggesting it will retail for around $800 (UGX 2,880,000) for the 128GB model while the 256GB model will up that and command $950 (UGX 3,420,000).
These figures hint at the P1 being a premium device in the domain of the likes of the Galaxy S7 (Or the soon to launch S8) and the iPhone 7.
