It’s already November and the eagerly anticipated Android powered Nokia phone that was expected to be released before the end of the year still hasn’t materialised.
However, latest rumours suggest that Nokia is working on two new smartphones that will be released in early 2017.
According to reports from earlier this year, HMD Global, the company that bought the rights to launch a new range of Nokia phones has appointed PR firm Mother to take of the global promotional campaign scheduled to go ahead next year.
Over the weekend a series of new leaked images emerged online that claim to show the upcoming Android powered Nokia D1C smartphone.
According to the images, the Nokia D1C will be available in three colours including black, white and gold, with the latter rumoured to include a fingerprint scanner in the home button, while the black and white versions will not include a fingerprint scanner
Imagine that – a company launching a new Android smartphone in 2017 that does not include a fingerprint scanner, here’s hoping these latest rumours are incorrect, for Nokia’s sake if nothing else.
The leaked images also claim the black and white variants will have a polycarbonate back and will be housed in an all metal frame. Meanwhile, the gold variant include an all metal unibody design.
In terms of specs, the Nokia D1C is expected to be a mid level phone with a full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core CPU alongside 3GB RAM, with a 13P rear facing camera and an 8MP selfie snapper.
Nokia is yet to officially confirm any rumours of the Android powered D1C phone. However, the company is expected to feature prominently at next year’s MWC 2017 and could use the event to launch the D1C and even an all new Android Nokia tablet.
