Nokia D1C Specs And Images Get Leaked: 2 Variants Running Android 7.0 Nougat Revealed

Nokia's new push into the smartphone market will likely be led by the rumored D1C Android device. The company, however, already has released several cheap feature phones in the market.

It is already a done deal: Nokia is poised to make its grand comeback not with one but an array of Android devices next year.
The recent leak on this front involved two variants of the so-called Nokia D1C, which have both been dropped in our midst with clear images that show not only the purported hardware but also the Android version they will be sporting straight out of the box: Android 7.0 Nougat.
Nokia D1C
The Nokia D1C is one of the most leaked, underscoring the likelihood that it will indeed get to see the light of day and it will probably be one of the devices that will be released first.
It has already dropped by AnTuTu and Geekbench, jaunts that you may be sure have revealed the device's internals.

With the latest leak, we now know that the D1C is a budget handset. It could ship with a Full HD display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 4 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 600 chip. This last should cement its mid-range credentials.

Nokia D1C Variants
The recent report, however, revealed that the other variant could be a higher end version of the Nokia D1C or even Nokia's very own flagship itself. The leak has not provided more detailed information save for the claim that this device will have a larger 5.5-inch display. Interestingly, the two variants are said to have the same resolution.

Aside from the screen real estate, the premium D1C is distinguished by one other feature, at least at this point in time. This involves the fingerprint sensor, which is absent in the leaked sketch for the mid-ranger.

Some sources expect the Nokia D1C variants will debut in the upcoming CES 2017 happening in Las Vegas from Jan. 5 to 8.

More About Nokia's Makers
There is a bit of confusion as to what company is really behind Nokia's comeback. There are those who say that Nokia itself, which is now in the business of telecommunications equipment manufacture, is staging the Nokia smartphone's relaunch. This is based on the company's presentation in a meeting with investors last Nov. 15 where a slide alluded to Nokia's return as a smartphone brand next year.

On the other hand, there is also the fact that HMD Global, the company that licensed the Nokia brand from Microsoft and poised to release the Android-powered handsets is a separate business entity. It is a startup founded by former Nokia executives and they have partnered with Foxconn to get Nokia back into the smartphone game.
