While it’s been confirmed already that Nokia’s Android smartphones lineup is set to unveil sometime next year, a new Nokia phone, allegedly Nokia E1 TA-1000, has passed 3C (China Compulsory Certification) in China. Unfortunately, no concrete details are available just yet. However, the 3C listing suggests that the device comes with the standard 5C/2A charging support. Given the lack of fast charging support, Nokia E1 may not be a flagship product.
A leaked render of Nokia E1 suggests that the device flaunts a 5.5-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels HD resolution. If rumours are to believe, powering Nokia E1 is Qualcomm’s entry-level Snapdragon 200 series chipset paired with 1GB RAM. The phone is expected to be based on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The most-anticipated Nokia D1C is likely to be one of the first few Nokia-branded Android handsets to launch soon, along with Nokia E1.
Recent reports also indicate that Nokia will launch up to five new handsets at Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in February next year. These upcoming handsets are said to feature screen sizes ranging from 5.1 inches (Full HD) to 5.7 inches (Quad HD). That said, much-rumoured Nokia D1C is expected in two variants — one with a 5-inch screen and other featuring a 5.5-inch display.
