If a recent post from a Weibo turns out to be true, we could soon be seeing the launch of not one, but two new smartphones from Finnish smartphone maker, Nokia. While the company has been on a long sabbatical ever since the acquisition of its mobile devices division by Microsoft, a new piece of information claims that it is planning a big comeback with two new flagship devices.

The leak which was first reported by Phoneradar, comes from Weibo and points to two new smartphones, that will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset and will feature 5.5-inch AMOLED displays of Quad HD resolution. The devices will boot to Android 7.0 Nougat with Nokia's Z launcher on top, and will also feature IP68 dust and water resistance, similar to what we have on the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones.

Similar to Nokia's N1 tablet, both smartphones will feature an all-metal construction. With competition heating up, Nokia is also expected to go low on the price, with the device being priced at 3000 Yuan (approximately Rs 30,000). For now there are no details regarding what would be the differences between the two devices.

As with recent Nokia launches, the devices would first be available to the China market.
