HMD Global is already seeing moderate success with the mid-range Nokia 6 Android smartphone in China, but the company has planned more for this year. The company has confirmed that it is working on a flagship Nokia smartphone which will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip.

Replying to a user on the Chinese social media site Weibo, Nokia says that it’s developing a new smartphone with Qualcomm’s newest and most powerful mobile processor, according to Nokia Power User. A flagship Nokia smartphone has been rumored for some time now, and this is the first time that Nokia itself has addressed this.

The device is said to be called the Nokia P1 and it’s expected to come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB of storage, a 22.6MP camera and a 3,500 mAh battery, according to Android Headlines. The device is also believed to come with an Ultrasonic fingerprint reader on its right edge and will run Android Nougat straight out of the box.

Although Nokia is mum on when the device will launch, it’s currently being speculated that it might make an appearance during this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which kicks off in late February. However, Nokia said on its Weibo post that the Snapdragon 835-equipped smartphone will take some time suggesting that it may be unveiled at a later date.

There’s also a reference to Intel’s Kaby Lake processor on Nokia’s Weibo post. This might suggest that Nokia is working on a tablet, according to GSM Arena. Kaby Lake chips are primarily used for PCs or 2-in-1 hybrids so it’s highly unlikely that it’s for a smartphone.

In a separate reply on Weibo, Nokia also told fans to follow them for news on “Nokia Windows devices.” Microsoft is still responsible for providing support for legacy devices, so the mention of Nokia Windows devices is pretty peculiar.
