Nokia will be re-entering the Android smartphone market in 2017. Unlike the Nokia X and Nokia XL smartphones that came with a forked Android OS, the upcoming Nokia smartphones will come with full functionalities including the Google Play services. Even though these upcoming smartphones come with a Nokia branding, they will be designed and manufactured by another company called as HMD. The rumors suggested the company to launch a smartphone called Nokia D1C. It is leaked to come up with entry-level specifications, but today a new smartphone called Nokia C1 was spotted in a concept video. Unlike the Nokia D1C smartphone, the newly leaked Nokia C1 comes with flagship specifications.
Though it comes with a metal body, the video also showed the device to come with different body textures. Before talking about this device, we can’t confirm these specifications to come out real as this information is based on a concept video. From the video, we can see the display on this device to come with a higher screen-to-body ratio. It sports a dual front facing speakers and on the rear is a big camera module featuring dual rear camera sensors along with triple LED flash and Xenon flash. Even the earlier launched Nokia Lumia smartphones powered by Microsoft also used the Xenon flash. The Nokia C1 features a 5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution.
Under the hood, the Nokia C1 comes powered by Snapdragon 830 processor. Though Qualcomm announced only the Snapdragon 835 SoC that will be available in the first half of 2017, there is no official information about the Snapdragon 830 SoC. But leaks suggests the company to reveal the Snapdragon 830 processor only in the new year. It includes 4GB of DDR4 RAM and will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage options. Talking about the cameras, it is mentioned to feature a 12MP and 16MP sensors on the back and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. On the right edge, we can find the power button and shutter button; whereas the volume rocker can be found on the left edge.
The USB Type-C port and 3.5mm audio port are placed on the bottom edge. The device is said to run on Andriod 7.1.1 Nougat OS. It will be powered by a 3,210mAh battery and might come with fast charging support. Recently, HMD also launched a couple of Nokia features phones called Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM. As the name suggests, the Nokia 150 Dual SIM additionally comes with dual SIM support. Both the devices are priced at $26 and lacks the internet access. They feature a 2.4-inch QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) resolution display and comes with the popular Snake Xenzia game. The devices run on Nokia Series 30+ OS which is the same as on the already launched Nokia 130 phone.
According to the company, the both these phones are mentioned to give upto 22 hours of battery life and lasts upto a month on standby. There is a VGA camera on the rear along with a single LED flash that can also be used as a torch light. With the very little market share, the company might stand out of other devices with their quality and service.
