Nokia has been more or less well known for their Windows Phone devices in the past couple of years, but it seems that after being purchased by Microsoft, they have more or less come to the end of the road where smartphones are concerned. Well, what you see above here is the newly announced Nokia N1, an Android 5.0 Lollipop powered tablet.
It boasts a simplicity in design, and is the first Android-powered Nokia brand-licensed device – hopefully it will not be the last. Tipped to hit the China market first in the first quarter of next year with a recommended retail price of $249, this special one-piece aluminum design with a soft finish will arrive in both Lava Grey and Natural Aluminum colors. It will also sport a 7.9″ laminated display which resides in a chassis that is 6.9mm thin, running on a quad-core 2.4GHz Intel Atom processor. Any takers? [Press Release]
Earlier this year, Huawei did roll out the Ascend P7 into the market, and it is rather surprising to hear that there is a successor in the works, where it could be unveiled some time next year on the CES showfloor. Of course, this would be a rather short time in between flagships to roll out. MyDrivers claims that the Ascend P8 is being tested internally at the moment, although it remains to be determined whether this rumor is going to turn out to be true or not.
Rumors of the Huawei Ascend P8 point to a 5.2” display that carries a standard resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which translates to a 424ppi. The panel looks like the 2.5D type, which happen to be tapered off at the edges in the same manner as that of the iPhone 6, although the Taiwanese manufacturer behind its design remains unknown.
MyDrivers’ sources also claim that there will be a 16 nm FinFET octa-core Kirin 930 processor inside. Are you stoked to see what the Huawei Ascend P8 will come with when it finally rolls off the production lines?
