In spite of the fact that some tech pundits announced that Nokia is “going back” to smartphones, the fact of the matter is that they never “got out” of the game. They just got less relevant. A whole lot less relevant than they used to be. As tech pundits and geeks the world over can recall, Microsoft announced the acquisition of the mobile company in September 2013 and completed the purchase on April 25, 2014. Nokia hasn’t ceased to exist during the acquisition period. Nokia Lumia phones were still around, and even though the Nokia X was a flop, the fact remains that the company still made attempts to catch the mobile device market’s attention.
However, it does seem as if Microsoft put Nokia on a lesser tier of its priorities. Now, post-Windows 10 launch, it seems that Microsoft is turning its focus to bringing Nokia back to relevance.
Enter the leak of the Nokia C1. While Nokia has named a previous device similarly, the 2016 release will be an Android-powered device. It will be a 5-inch device, with the following specs:
OS: Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop)
Internal Storage: 32GB
Connectivity: GSM, HSPA, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n
Display: 5.0 inches 1080p display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a ~294 ppi pixel density
Cameras: Primary: 8 MP with an output of 3264 x 2448 pixels, LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging and touch focus; Secondary: 5MP
Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion battery
Nokia reportedly uses the “C” nomenclature to stand for “Core” devices, a crucial part of their line. Essentials, so to speak.
Hopefully, the Nokia’s use of the Android will not be as radically different as it rendered the Android on the Nokia X series. This way, Android fans won’t be left disgruntled, critical, and hopefully, the market will snap up the new line of Nokia phones.
