Nokia, once the undisputed king of the mobile phone market, is planning to make a comeback with two new smartphone devices, if rumors are to be believed. One popular model rumored to be launched is Nokia D1C whose details are leaking in media time to time. Recently, a fresh image has cropped up which gives the possible indication of the upcoming Nokia device.
The latest leak has come from a user on Weibo, that is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter and it was spotted AndroidPure guys who shared it to rest of the world. “Today, we have spotted a set of new images which are the alleged renders of Nokia D1C, revealing the design and build of the device,” says the publication.
Last leaks gave indication that the Nokia device would be something like another tablet from the company, but the latest leak suggests otherwise. The new phone is expected to come in Gold, White, and Black color variants.
The Gold color option will sport a fingerprint scanner underneath the Home Button. It has capacitive buttons at the front and the volume and power buttons are on the right side. The upcoming smartphone seems to have a round edge having 3.5mm audio jack and a USB port and microphone. It also has a glass back casing. But all of this is merely a guess, so you should consider these information with a pinch of salt.
Earlier leaks indicates that Nokia D1C is expected to sport will have 2K resolution display, and it will be also water and dust resistant. It is also expected to have a Snapdragon 820 or Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, along with 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
From the specifications, it does not look like a high-end smartphone which is largely due to its low-end octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC, Adreno 505 GPU. From design, it looks like Lumia smartphones having a sporty look and a metal body. The renders are in switch off mode, only one navigation button on the bottom of the display is visible.
Nokia, in the early part of the year, announced to come with new Android-based products in the market. After the Nokia N1 (First Impressions) tablet, the company is slated to re-enter the smartphone segment. If this is true, it will be after a long break that Nokia will finally not be stopped from coming with a mobile device with its brand name.
