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

20

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?
