Nokia hints at Snapdragon 835 powered smartphone

We could see a Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia very soon

Earlier this month, HMD unveiled their first Nokia-branded Android smartphone, and the device proved to be an instant hit. In the first flash sale for the Nokia 6, the device sold out in just one minute.




And while many are thrilled that the Nokia is back on the market, there are a couple of problems. First, the Nokia 6 is available only in China, and second - the device isn't competitive with the top tier phones since it features Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.


However, this is just the first Nokia-branded Android smartphone from HMD Global, and we can expect more to come.


With MWC in a bit more than a month, there are many speculations that we could see a Nokia flagship featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. While the rumors aren't confirmed yet, this would be a logical step for the company if they want to see the Nokia-branded smartphones competitive in the market.


The latest hint to the Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia smartphone comes from the company's official Weibo account where they hinted that this is just a matter of time.


MWC is just around the corner, and although I am not convinced we will see there the Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia, it makes perfect sense for the company to announce a flagship sometime this year.


Would you buy a Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia smartphone?
