After the launch of Nokia 6, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3310 (2017) this year the company is far from being done. More announcements are expected in 2017, as recently we got an exclusive leak that a new flagship device is in the making.
According to reports, the Nokia flagship will sport a metal jacket & will come in two size variants; will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC - the latest Qualcomm processor also seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Mi6 The smartphone will pack 4GB and 6GB of RAM, and may sport a 23-megapixel sensor and as the trend is going forward, it won't be a shocker if it sports a dual camera setup. But however, these sensors won't be Carl Zeiss, as per the report.
The name of the device has not been revealed, but it is expected to launch sometime in June. The smaller variant is expected to sport a price tag of $580 (roughly Rs. 37,200), and the larger variant is rumored to sport a price tag of $650 (roughly Rs. 41,600). With this kind of pricing, Nokia certainly is targeting the niche platform of the market.

Apart from this lead intel, the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 smartphones have also been tipped earlier, and they are both expected to be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 660 processor. The Nokia 8 is tipped to sport a dual camera setup, while the Nokia 7 will have a single camera at the rear, all lenses are expected to be outsourced from Carl Zeiss.
The Nokia flagship will go head-on with the launch of One Plus 5 and it will be quite interesting to see which one sticks the ground.
