Nokia is expected to make a return to the smartphone market later this year.

A leak indicates that the Nokia A1 will be ready for release in the middle of the year. Android Authority’s sources indicate that Nokia’s upcoming device won’t look anything like previous handsets.

It’s believed that the Nokia A1 will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, and will likely run Nokia Z Launcher on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. That means we’re most likely looking at a mid-range handset.

The question is whether or not Nokia will release this globally or if it will be kept to a particular region. Of course, there’s nothing official until Nokia makes a statement.
