I don't know why GSMArena is publishing such rumors which are from *anonymous* source with no credibility whatsoever.
That said, Nokia will need some innovative feature to set its flagship apart from the crowd.
Yeah it is quite spicy, but at least let's hope that it will be a bang for one's buck, then its okay
With that expected RRP then it better be a flagship that packs at least a 3500++mAh to 4000mAh battery and nothing less. Nothing grinds my gears the way these new flagships from almost every single OEM today that seems to adhere from the same 3500 and below batt capacity guideline.
Should also go for best or nothing, sony now leads with 4K screen, QHD won't make goosebumps anymore, same for any other part. Better 256Gb, 6Gb ram, 4mics, mil-rating, IPXX, 4DACs, iris,fingerprint-scanner. Point of such device is to be at top, something what samsung is trying. Ah, it should also come with pen, why not?
What? The screen ration is fantastic and is the way to go, you get way more screen real estate at the same device size, which is the only reason people haven't went farther than 5.7" so far!

is made of "old Nokia Employees" , Nokia is the board member of HMD and has the right to deny any phone they don't like .. And HMD can use Nokia's R and D , technology and patents
and HMD is "exclusive" licencee .. So this is infact much of the old Nokia , Instead of having a separate department for Mobile division , they have set up a new different company to avoid the financial risks on main NOKIA ..
Even foxconn is using OLD Nokia factories to manufacture phones
Wonder why still nobody made triple-camera with each sensor in different color: Red or Green or Blue, I think Its about time because sony is way ahead with their color reproduction.

AnonD-523334, 10 Apr 2017When MS bought Nokia,patents and trademarks moved to Microsoft.now Microsoft didn't sell Nokia... moreNo , Please link me to an article if that's the case ..
Microsoft only bought 8500 "Design related" patents .. Rest all other Patents were
"Licensed" , not sold ..
Microsoft only bought Trademarks for pureview , Clearblack etc.. they might have also bought patents for feature phones , but HMD acquired back from them
Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are using ClearBlack tech ( polarised filter ) the trademark is owned by Microsoft , hence they cannot call it Clearblack .. but they can use the technology..
Similarly OZO VR Camera uses many of Pureview tech aspects ...

Can you show me a link where they say that they own the patents ?
Clearblack tech ( polarised filter ) is used by HMD in Nokia 5 .. MS only has the trademarks not the tech related patents ..
I am liking it. Interesting to see final design. We want some edginess but understand it's the beginning. The 6 is so solid. Only wish here is for a device approx 145mm or less as so many are too big for pockets and business meets.
There's something called perception. If it's ugly to you, doesn't mean it actually is.

They o... moreMicrosoft owns a lot of Nokia's patents, not trademarks. Pureview patents being just some of the ones that they own. Trademarks are nearly worthless. So no, Microsoft does in fact own the underlying technology, by holding related patents.
HMD would either have to use off-the-shelf parts, develop new components, or license pureview tech from Microsoft.
