The images of the new Android-powered Nokia D1C have been leaked! The device was earlier rumoured to be a tablet, but the recent image leaks have dismissed that rumour.
Based on the current rumours, the device will have two variants: basic and premium, and will come in multiple colours, three of which (white, gold and black respectively) have had their pictures leaked.
A fingerprint scanner is likely to be present on the premium variant of the Android-powered Nokia D1C. The premium variant of the Nokia D1C is expected to sport a metal unibody design, while the basic variant is likely to make use of a metal frame and a polycarbonate body.
Leaked Nokia D1C Rumoured Specifications:
- Full HD (1920×1080) IPS display.
- Octa-Core Snapdragon 430 processor (4x Cortex A53 @ 1.5GHz and 4x Cortex A53 @ 1.2GHz).
- 3GB RAM.
- 32GB on board storage, expandable to 128GB using a microSD card.
- Android 7.0 Nougat.
- 8MP front camera and 13MP back camera with LED flash.
- 4G VoLTE capability.
- Bluetooth 4.1
We are expecting a 5.5″ display based on the image leaks. There is buzz that Nokia is planning to launch multiple other devices along with the leaked D1C.
The Nokia D1C might be officially announced in early 2017, most likely at MWC 2017, where the CEO Rajeev Suri will be delivering the keynote speech. Mike Wang, President of Joing Management Team for Nokia, had said earlier that the company will be launching three Android devices by the end of the year 2016, but there is not much information about that. This further increases the possibility of a 2017 launch for the Nokia D1C and other devices.
There is no word on availability or pricing yet, but one of the earlier leaks suggested that the Android-powered Nokia D1C would be a sub-10k INR device. However, this was back when it was rumoured to be a tablet. If priced well, it has the potential to be the phone that brings Nokia back on the map, especially since Nokia already has a pretty strong brand loyalty because of their reputation of bulletproof quality.
