Recently, a couple of details about one of the first devices that should be introduced in 2017, the Nokia D1C, made the rounds online, thanks to three different benchmark databases.There have been a lot of rumours about Nokia’s highly anticipated return to the smartphone market and the Finnish manufacturer itself confirmed this, a couple of weeks ago.
Initially, it was believed that it will have a 13.8″ display, but the D1C will actually be a phone, according to some new sources. To be more specific, two phones, since it could be released in two hardware versions.
First of all, we should see a lower-end Nokia D1C, with a 5″ full HD display, being powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 420 chipset, rocking an octa-core configuration, clocked at 1.4 GHz, alongside an Adreno 505 GPU and 2 GB of RAM, while the storage capacity should count 16 GB.
In terms of camera, this entry-level handset will feature a 13 MP snapper on the back, teamed with an 8 MP selfie shooter. As for the operating system, it will be, of course, Android 7.0 Nougat, hopefully as close to stock as possible.
As for the other variant of the Nokia D1C, it will keep most of the specs, the only differences being the size of the display, rumoured to measure 5.5 inches, and the amount of RAM, which will receive a bump to 3 GB.
Right now, both phones are already being tested and a couple of renders with the presumed prototypes are available online. Of course, we shouldn’t ignore the scenario in which these two devices will look completely different when they will be released.
We don’t have any details about an approximate launch date, nor the price, but Nokia could make the D1C duo official during next year’s Mobile World Congress or hold a special event on their own.
