It’s already November but the promised Nokia Android phone still hasn’t arrived. Despite the delay rumour mills have constantly supplied us with enough info regarding Nokia D1C device. A new leak shows the phone in full glory and it is also reported that Nokia will launch D1C smartphone at MWC 2017.
Nokia’s D1C Android device was earlier reported to be a tablet citing a Geekbench report, but the new images show that it is indeed a phone. A tech website, AndroidPure, has posted several renders of the Nokia D1C phone that were circulating on Weibo.
According to leaked Geekbench benchmark, the Nokia D1C phone is expected to come with Qualcomm octa-core process running at 1.4GHz, which is backed by Adreno 505 GPU. This is very likely to be Snapdragon 430 processor.
Since the new renders don’t look anywhere close to a tablet, we are doubtful about the earlier display information. Some reports had suggested that the D1C will be a massive tablet with 13.8-inch Full HD display. The latest renders suggest it could be either a 5-inch or a 5.5-inch smartphone.
The phone will come with a 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which will possibly be expandable using a microSD card. Some reports have also suggested that it will come with Android 7.0 Nougat.
On the back, the Nokia D1C comes with a 16-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash. The phone also carries an 8-megapixel camera on the front. It’s yet not clear if the front camera also has flash and autofocus features. Both the cameras are capable of recording videos at 1080P resolution.
Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri will be delivering the keynote speech at MWC 2017, so it is very likely that the company may also announce the phone at the same time. Mike Wang, Nokia’s president of joint management team in China, had also said earlier that the company will be launching three Android devices by end of this year. Since the year has almost come to an end, we are hoping for an early 2017 launch.
