Alleged Nokia Android phone rear panel leaks, jibes with previous renders

Alleged Nokia Android phone rear panel leaks, jibes with previous renders
We learned last week that the Finnish company that got licensed the rights to sell Nokia-branded smartphones, will be coming up with a few of those next year. Rumors are that we will see one or two announced come MWC time in early spring, and some more will follow throughout 2017.

There was a render of an alleged Nokia Android phone, codenamed D1C, which depicted a rectangular slab with tapered sides and a center-middle camera setup. Well, today we get the alleged back plate of an upcoming Nokia phone, and it pretty much looks like what we saw in the render.

This particular Nokia phone is said to be a midrange affair, with 1080 x 1920 resolution display, according to some leaked AnTuTu benchmarks. A Snapdragon 430 chipset drives the phone with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 3 GB of RAM is inside along with 32 GB of internal storage. On the back of the phone will be a 13MP camera, while an 8MP camera in front handles selfies and video chats. Oh, well, at least it seems crafted out of metal, and there will apparently be a marketing blitz behind its launch.

The mobile phone market is toooo crowded and now i dont think anybody will fall for nokia branding unless they're die hard fans.. And since there's nokia name in it, it's gonna be priced in someplace where the Chinese will be offering 6xx 8xx snapdragon devices!

You have no idea about brand strength and fan base or customer loyalty

I'll wait for a flagship from Nokia. None of this entry-level/midrange business.

The Nokia brand doesn't have all the charisma it once had, but everything is possible in this smartphone industry. Eager to see how Nokia will perfrom in the Android ecosystem!

Not sure how good this device will be but if it follows nokia's legacy then surely we will have camera performance generations ahead of its competitors.
