Here is the Nokia C1 - real-life images of Nokia's first real Android smartphone appear
posted by Peter K. / Sep 07, 2015, 6:01 AM
The rumor mill has been constantly feeding us with speculations that Nokia might have an Android-powered smartphone running stock Android with its own Z Launcher atop - the Nokia C1. It already appeared in a few promising renders a dew days ago, and these seem to be mostly on point with the two brand new real-life images that just popped up in the wild.
What these show us is a sleek device with seemingly-promising screen-to-body size ratio and on-screen navigation buttons that is running Android. Design-wise, it bears a lot of similarities with the Nokia N1 tablet, but in a smaller form factor, naturally.
We expect the device to have the following specs: a 5-inch display, an Intel Atom chipset, paired with 2 GB of RAM, and an 8 MP camera, coupled with a 5 MP front camera. As you can see, it won't probably be a high-end device, but merely an entry-level mid-range one.
There is zero info on its potential announcement and release date just yet. As the Nokia N1 got unveiled on November 18, 2014, but got out on the market a couple of months later on, we don't rule out the possibility that Nokia could announce its return sometime in one or two months' time.
Disclaimer: Upon closer inspection, we believe that the images right below are renders.
Are you excited already?

First step: Create market awareness that Nokia is back. How? decent hardware and design at an attractive price point (like N1 table). Second step: Expand to more models in more price segments -> low-high-end. third step: Establish a premium Nokia brand/model and start to make money

A BIG welcome back Nokia, we've missed you. Microsoft tried their best to kill you but you managed to survive.

It's too little too late. Nokia is a joke now because they only have the brand name, all patents and factories were sold to Microsoft. Although it's under Nokia name, all parts are from low quality Chinese tech which we all know, has a widespread records of flaw. To put it in a nutshell, Nokia is already dead, it's being forgotten. Only Samsung and LG are the saviours of tech world.

And the designs and technologies that made Nokia stand out - the vibrant colors and PureView cameras - are on MS Lumias. I know it pains the Nokia fans greatly, but MS owns the Nokia legacy. Face it folks, a name is not a company.

Microsoft DID NOT buy all 30,000 of Nokia's patents.
True, they did get the design patents, but they didn't get every Nokia patent.

You started to be scared, huh? Don't worry, this is not company soon, but your killer smasher monster is coming in two days. Cry on the next financial report for the miserable Note 5 selling rate.

Eewww. That phone doesn't look good on any level. Looks super cheap and most of the folks that made Nokia great are gone. No thanks... Nokia should stay dead like the ngage
