A man can dream: concept renders show us a sleek Android-powered Nokia 1100

Recently, a "leak" popped up and rekindled the hopes of all those fans that swear by the name of Nokia. A device named "Nokia 1100" (an obvious nod to one of Nokia's most successful phones ever) was caught in a benchmarks website, bringing Android 5.0 and a MediaTek chipset in tow. The device was claimed to be bound for 2016 (when Nokia can once again put its name on a smartphone).

Of course, this fabricated "leak" was quickly debunked, but it certainly left a craving in those aching to see Nokia back in the phone market. The rumor was a reason enough for a graphic designer to grab the virtual pencils and come up with a conceptual render of a device than encapsulates both the classic looks of Nokia's 2003 bestseller and an up-to-date smartphone that is "powered by Android".

The conceptual images below are courtesy of Jermaine Smit, who is certainly hyped up for the potential return of the ex-giant. Do you think that Nokia might once again be "connecting people" if it releases such a device in 2016?

The back reminds good old Nokia but those lines around the phone suits more to a cheap chinese company

The first render, a month or two ago, the one that looked a bit like an iPhone 6, looked beautiful.

The guy who did this should stick to his day job...of designing entry level phones for ZTE and Huawei...

Seriously weird looking concept. Nokia can make far better designs than these.

The back looks like you're carrying a pack of cigarettes.

I hope you guys like it. I tried to stay as close to the orginal design as I could but making it more modern! :) does line in the metal are taken from that the way the metal goes to the back to and then the black soft texture also. Then the front speaks making it a bit bigger and more modern but the same idea.

I truly hope you guys like it:) and with the video i tried to make it look as smooth as i could xD

thanks to Phonearena!!

Too bulky.

Should slim down to sleek petite body.

Yep. Love the removable back cover but the usb jack should be more up to date.

Nokia 1100 deserves a more beautiful design that this.
