"Nokia 1100" handset being tested for 2016; phone carries quad-core MediaTek chip, Android 5.0

The Nokia 1100 is an old entry-level phone from 2003. Some one at Nokia thought it might be funny to use the model number on a new Android model being tested. Under the terms of its deal with Microsoft, Nokia cannot offer a new smartphone until the fourth quarter of 2016. But a benchmark test was already conducted on a Nokia smartphone running Android 5.0. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT-6582 CPU...

It's not gonna be a flagship lol. Hope they will release a N series phone as their flagship.

MediaTek tho? The SoC plays a part in battery life, multi tasking, etc. Hope they are any good.

Android One is powered by MTK6582. I got Cherry Mobile One and it can last a day. Dual SIMS open, frequent 3G use, some time passing games like CSR and Spiderman Unlimited. Knowing these specs run fluidly on 5.1 Lollipop, I can squeeze a nifty 6-7hrs of battery life. Yes MTK is good, kinda underrated but safe to say Qualcomm and Exynos can do better.

It's probably some no-name Chinese company's smartphone

Can a no-name Chinese company name their own company as Nokia? I think not.

you will be surprised to know that there are many small chinese companies that produce phone with product name similar to NOKIA such as NOKlA, N0K1A, NCKIA, etc.

No, but they can license the name from nokia to use on their phones... Nokia licenced the name to Foxconn for the Nokia N1 http://www.techtimes.com/articles/20513/20141118/nokia-consumer-push-n1-gets-receptive-response.htm

That's an eternity. With those specs at that time it'll do horrible. The IPhone, nexus, and note all come out in the fall. Damn Nokia.

"Any specs that show up now on a benchmark test will probably not be on the final version of the phone", well yeah.

Not interested, I was a long time Android user, and it was a very good experience. But after trying WP, I feel it serves my needs betters. Good luck Nokia in competing in a cheap Chinese devices saturated market, especially that although cheaply priced, but high in quality made (oneplus one, xiaomi, Oppo, and many more).

Same here, this year I wanted to switch to android from WP, but after playing with couple of android phones I just understood how lame android feels after WP.

32. Hashed unregistered

Great, I wish more people were more open minded, and just give WP a try. I'm not hating on Android, I think it is a great OS, and so is WP (no place for ios on my list)

as I said in this post... When nokia android's device outsold the Microsoft WP's device... the discussion will be RED HOT. At that time, I hope you were open minded
