I guess they’re still connecting people.
Like many of you, Nokia made my very first smartphone. It was sturdy. It had those games that you’d play for hours without realizing it. It has those beautiful greenish displays and the 123 numpad. Oh, the good old days. But also like many of you, I switched to newer phones with bigger displays and cameras and everything else, but Nokia didn’t. Fast forward to today and Nokia has decided that it’ll be coming back to the smartphone game through the software that Google has so graciously allowed anyone to personalize, Android.
Some of you might have heard the rumours and seen some leaks, but it’s about to be official. I say about to because it hasn’t been officially announced yet, but we pretty much know everything already. And for the important specs, they are:
A 5.5 inch 1080p display, Android 7.0 Nougat with Nokia’s software on top, Snapdragon 430 CPU, Adreno 505 GPU, 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB, 4GB of RAM, A fingerprint scanner and a 3000mAh battery.
Now, if you don’t speak geek, here’s what it all means. A pretty good display, not too far from awesome. The latest version of software and some Nokia additions, average but no slouch processing package, acute storage, awesome multitasking and a not bad battery depending on your usage. This phone’s is Nokia’s chance to win back the hearts of its fanatics and it will of course be received with open arms. But will it live up to the standards that previous Nokia devices have had? I guess we’ll find out, won’t we?
