Nokia was undoubtedly one of the most popular cell phone brands in the 90's. But with the onslaught of new competition and fast-paced developments in the field, the company got pushed back. However, there is now news on a development coming from Nokia itself regarding a high-end smartphone that might once again bring the company into the spotlight.
The Nokia D1C
A new smartphone from Nokia has appeared on Geekbench, which notes some very impressive specifications. The device itself is expected to go on sale either by the end of the year, or within the first quarter of 2017.
According to the report, the device will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 system-on-chip, which can support a full HD screen. The chip itself is of mid-range value, but still comes with a total of eight cores, which will be supported by an Adreno 505 GPU to take care of the graphics.
The Nokia D1C is expected to run pretty smoothly with 3GB of RAM and will carry Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box. However, the listing for internal memory and the camera system is still missing.
The units are expected to be manufactured by Foxconn. Unfortunately, there is not much else known about the device at this point.
Nokia's Climb Back
According to Android Headlines, this is definitely not the first time that Nokia has dipped its hands the the Android market. A few years prior, the company released the Nokia N1 Tablet, which was still considered a success. The only trouble was that it was only released to a select locations.
Of course, there was also the Nokia Lumia smartphone family, which was apty received.
Perhaps it will do better this time around with the Nokia D1C. What's more, Nokia is actually estimated to release a group of new smartphones. Therefore, the company is expected to unveil more than just the device described above.
The company's name is still remembered with awe and admiration. In fact, features of the older devices are very often compared with the features of new smartphones. Its greatest asset of course, has always been its durability. Hopefully Nokia still incorporates this into its upcoming gadgets.
