Even as Nokia was formally announcing the partnership with HMD Global, new leaks on benchmarking sites has given a glimpse of the upcoming Android-based smartphones.
The Nokia D1C was spotted on Antutu and Geekbench with two variants, both having different screen sizes and internals. While one will sport a 5-inch screen with 2GB RAM, the second variant will have a 5.5-inch display and 3GB RAM.
Nokia D1C will be powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 430 processor paired with an Adreno 505 GPU. Running on Android Nougat, the smaller device will feature a 13MP rear camera and the bigger version will see a 16MP shooter. For selfies, there will be an 8MP front camera.
Both the devices will come with 16GB expandable storage. The entry-level devices could be showcased at the MWC 2017. According to rumors, Nokia could also be working on a high-end Android smartphone.
A report by NDTV said the device could feature a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch screen size, 2K (QHD) display, Zeiss lens for the primary camera and metal unibody design.
The latest leaks come just as Nokia signed a strategic licensing agreement giving HMD Global exclusive use of the Nokia brand on mobile phones and tablets worldwide for the next 10 years.
