It is worth mentioning that there is no official word, so we are not 100% sure whether this device exists or not. One of the interesting things that the sources revealed is that the Nokia P1 is going to be based on a device from the company Sharp.
Well, in case you don’t know, Sharp was the company that released the bezel-less phone, Aquos Crystal back in 2014. Yes, it was able to build a little bit of hype but not that much as the Mi Mix made last year. Anyways, the P1 by Nokia is expected to resemble the Sharp Aquos Xx3 that is a year old device. But, we will surely see some high-end specs on the P1.
The specifications of the Nokia P1 have been leaked via a Russian Website, and according to that site:

As far as specs are concerned, the Nokia P1 will feature a 5.3-inch Display with Gorilla Glass 5. But, it is not known what will be the resolution. We are expecting it to be Quad HD. The phone will have a Snapdragon 835 processor along with 6GB of RAM and massive 256GB internal storage. Coming to the cameras, the P1 will feature a 22.6MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss Optics.
