Finnish tech giant, Nokia is planning to hit the market with the help of an Android smartphone. Finally, Nokia is all set to right the wrong of not going with Android. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Nokia once ruled the mobile industry just like British – “the empire on which the sun never sets.”
Recently, a Nokia smartphone with model number D1C was spotted on Geekbench. According to the benchmarks, the phone is running on Android 7.0 Nougat. Also, the device is going to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz.
The benchmark was run five times on September 30 revealing the single-core score around 656 and multi-core score around 3120. Geekbench also reported that the phone is supposed to have a 3GB RAM. Unfortunately, there’s no info about the camera, display size or any other specs.
Earlier, in January, a metal body Nokia phone was leaked online, and this is the second time in year that we’re excited about new product from a company which was once loved by all. Judging by its chipset Snapdragon 430, the device is going to be priced in mid-range segment. Currently, Redmi 3S is powered by same chipset and is priced at Rs 6999 and Rs 8999 for two different variants. It would be quite interesting the see the heat between these two devices once Nokia unveils its D1C smartphone. Hopefully, we’ll get to see this device before 2017.
There are also rumors of two other Nokia devices – Nokia 5320 and Nokia RM-1490. These devices were spotted in month of August this year. However, these devices were listed with entry-level specs whereas D1C is spotted with mid-range specs.
