A new leak has revealed the existence of the Nokia C1 smartphone, which is reportedly going to be the company’s first Android smartphone after it was acquired by Microsoft this year. It is likely that the smartphone will be produced by Foxconn, much like Nokia’s N1 tablet which will be sold early next year.
Nokia’s acquisition of Microsoft strictly speaks of the company not launching any further smartphones under the Nokia brand until 2016. And while the Nokia N1 doesn’t necessarily break this clause, the launch of a handset might have some serious legal repercussions.
This leads us to believe that this is merely a leaked render from internal Nokia meetings and nothing conclusive. Or perhaps Nokia will wait until 2016 to announce this smartphone, which is still some distance away from now.
The leak further claims that the Nokia C1 will be packing a 5 inch display with no word on the resolution. It’s also reportedly sporting an Intel ATOM processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and Android 5.0 KitKat with the Nokia Z Launcher. It’s unlikely that we’ll hear more about this device any time soon, but we’ll make sure you’re the first to know when there’s something conclusive to go with.
